PDP rejects Amaechi's appointment as Transportation Minister

The PDP Chairman in the state, Felix Obuah, said this in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam.

 

The People's Democratic Party in Rivers State has rubbished the appointment of the state former governor, Rotimi Amaechi as the Minister of Transportation, saying it would not make any impact on the people.

The PDP Chairman in the state, Felix Obuah, said this in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam.

He said Amaechi's appointment is a clear indication that President Muhammadu Buhari's war against corruption is only targeted at perceived political enemies and opponents.

According to him, Amaechi is at war with River and the incumbent Governor, Nyesom Wike, adding that the ex-governor has poisoned the minds of his supporters in the state not to support Wike or his vision.

Obuah said: “Rivers State has an appreciable number of qualified, prudent and humble sons and daughters with burning desire to move the State forward and help promote the existing peace and love among the people which Gov Wike has graciously put in place in only five months in office.

“We’ll therefore be happy to have the federal government or any other agency that means well for the State to always pick from this pool of resourceful and more enterprising human capital other than those with penchant for misleading, mishandling and mismanaging the scare resources of the State as exemplified by the Amaechi administration.”
