Indications have emerged that the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom
Wike and his PDP loyalists have gone the extra miles to perfect plans
to try to frustrate the ministerial nomination of ex-Governor Rotimi
Amaechi by President Muhammadu Buhari.
A source in the state said: “Loyalists of Governor Nyesom Wike are
planning a protest to the National Assembly this week against former
Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi’s nomination as minister.
“We have reliable information that they have set aside N350million to
execute this invidious plot.
“What is worrisome is that loyalists of Wike are doing this at a time
Rivers State children have been locked out of schools because of the
state government’s refusal to pay salaries.”
The source also alleged that some PDP stalwarts also met with a group of
senators from the party to “pay back Amaechi in his own coin” for
defecting from the party to the APC.
“PDP is already advising its members in Rivers and Ekiti states to reject
the nominees appointed by the president,” the source said.
The Rivers State chapter of APC has vowed to resist move to scuttle
Amaechi’s clearance by the Senate.
Rivers APC are set to resist attempts by Wike’s loyalists to protest
against Amaechi in Abuja.
Another source added: “There is further information that APC members
in Rivers State are also gearing up to counter-attack as they are
mobilizing their supporters to match PDP’s strength. Security agencies
are very concerned about the possibility of the Rivers crisis spilling over
into the FCT, Abuja.”
When contacted, the state chairman of APC, Chief Dr. Davies Ibiamu
Ikanya, admitted hearing the rumours, saying he had told party members
to be prepared.
He said: “The APC in Rivers State has borne with equanimity all the
numerous attacks by the PDP and its leadership against our leader and
former governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi.
“It is sad, indeed, as the former governor has done nothing to deserve
such evil behaviour. We have decided, as a party, that we will no longer
keep silent. We will match the PDP action for action and word for word.”
