EXCLUSIVE: Rotimi Amaechi Dumps APC
Information reaching Naija News House says that Rotimi Amaechi Dumps APC
An alleged plot to leave the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been refuted by ex-Transport Minister and former presidential candidate Chibuike Amaechi.
Amaechi called those who spread the popular myth “clout chasers scamming for importance.”
This information was provided by the former Minister’s ally and APC chieftain, Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, in a statement to Newsmen.
Eze said: “I have the full approval of the former Minister to describe the cocktail of lie spreading like wildfire across media platforms as the handiwork of mischief makers and desperate rumormongers whose stock in trade has remained to sully the image of the former Rivers Governor whose landmark achievements in public service remain unparalleled in all spheres.”
He stated that Amaechi remains faithful to President Muhammadu Buhari and the party’s leadership and believes so much in the good ideological perspectives of the APC.
“As we wait for greater future engagements to continue his contributions for a better Nigeria, Nigerians and lovers of his pragmatic ideals should exercise patience until then.
“With this revelation in mind, contemplating dumping the ruling party has never crossed his mind,” Eze said.
The APC chieftain further emphasized that Amaechi has consistently been preoccupied with active engagements with stakeholders of the Rivers APC since the APC presidential primaries a few weeks ago in order to calm frayed nerves, strengthen the bond of unity among party men, and raise the morale of supporters at the grassroots ahead of the 2023 elections.
He said: “Seeing the much energy and efforts Amaechi has put in achieving the much he has done for Nigeria, he needs rest, and he is enjoying the rest that this occasion has provided for him.
“At least for the last sixteen years, Amaechi had no time for his family and friends, so he is using this opportunity to rediscover himself as a family man.”
Eze urged the party to stay concentrated and prepare for a powerful, battle-ready Rivers APC.
He reaffirmed that the party has developed a number of plans that will be put into action in May 2023 in order to rebuild trust, reinforce, and improve the drive to the brick house.
