APC Rivers dismiss calls for Amaechi to resign

24 October 2016, 20:00

Port Harcourt - The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has risen to the defence of Minister of Transportation,
Rotimi Amaechi, who is under pressure to resign following allegations of bribery by some judges.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for the former Rivers governor’s resignation after the judges alleged he tries to influence
their rulings on some election petition cases.

“We are convinced that God, who has always fought for Amaechi, will continue to save and strengthen him and will once again vindicate him,” APC regional chairman, Davies Ikanya, said on Monday.

He lambasted PDP and others who have joined in calling on Amaechi to resign and for his probe based on the  allegations by “some sponsored and
drowning judges.”

“These calls being championed by the PDP are just the latest manifestation of the party’s frustration and fight against Amaechi in retaliation for
his role in dislodging the PDP Government at the centre during the 2015 presidential elections.”
