PDP lambasts Amaechi for call on Wike to quit

31 March 2016, 18:32

Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed “regret” at calls by the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Governor Nyesom Wike to step down if peace was to prevail in the Rivers State.

Wike’s predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi, has been quoted in the media advising Wike to quit.

Rivers PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah, said it was regrettable such utterances came from a former governor and leader of a political party who ought to exhibit “high level of discipline, responsibility and maturity.”

“Amaechi’s comment has further vindicated the PDP that he (Amaechi) and members of the APC are behind all acts of violence in some parts of the state,” Obuah said.

The PDP chairman said he believed the security agencies were taking note of the comments by the APC leaders which he said touch on the security of the state.

He urged them to act speedily, claiming as this attitude presented the APC leaders as security threat.

Obuah however urged Amaechi to concentrate on his official duty as Minister of Transport to justify the reason for his appointment.

He therefore called on all Rivers people, irrespective of their political affiliations, to support Wike in his efforts to enthrone a peaceful and crime-free Rivers State, conducive for investment and development.

Instead of instigating violence in Rivers State, the APC must support efforts by Wike to create an atmosphere of peace and sustainable development, Obuah said.
