The Rivers State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, has warned the Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Uche Secondus, to leave the former Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi alone, or be ready to be exposed.
The state APC’s warning was contained in a statement by the State Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, in Port Harcourt on Sunday.
Ikanya was reacting to Secondus’ verbal attack on the ex-governor on Wednesday while receiving the report of the Senator Ike Ekweremadu-led 2015 Post-Election Review Committee.
The Rivers APC noted that the PDP had not been able to recover from the shock of Amaechi’s exit from the party (PDP), telling Secondus to desist from further attacking the APC leader in the state.
Rivers APC said, “We appreciate the agony of Prince Uche Secondus, one of the key architects of PDP’s loss of power after 16 years of misrule.
“We also understand his frustration in his very difficult assignment of reinventing PDP, a party the death of which he and some other tin gods caused by frustrating Amaechi and other progressives who were the souls of PDP out of the party.
“It is a pity that PDP has yet to recover from the shock of the departure of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi from the party. We will like to caution him (Secondus) to stop further disparaging of Amaechi as any further attack on Amaechi will force us to alert the world on who Prince Secondus truly is. We wish to warn him that enough is enough”.
The party wondered why Secondus, rather than concentrate on the recommendations of the Ekweremadu committee and addressing the issues raised in the committee’s report on how to get the PDP back on track, chose to “play to the gallery” by asking President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate Amaechi.
According to the APC, Amaechi has no skeleton in his closet, adding that the same cannot be said of the acting PDP chairman, who has a closet full of skeletons.
The state APC, therefore, advised the PDP to come to terms with the fact that Amaechi had left the party for good and had joined other patriotic Nigerians in a better political party.
It noted that the APC was poised to take Nigeria out of the woods, which the 16 years leadership of the PDP had plunged the country.
