The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, says the open confession and resolve of Governor Chibuike Amaechi and his suspended lawmaker supporters while hosting All Progressives Congress, APC chieftains in Port Harcourt today, Tuesday, November 5, 2013 is an eloquent testimony that they had long decamped from the PDP.
The Party through a statement signed by Jerry Needam, Special Adviser on Media to the State Chairman noted that the demand on Amaechi by the suspended lawmakers loyal to him and led by Otelemaba Dan Amachree for an immediate declaration for the APC is a mere camouflage to hoodwink Rivers people into believing they are being wooed to join the party.
The statement described the formalization of the marriage between Governor Amaechi and his new found love, the APC as a good development which according to the Party calls for thanksgiving by all men and women of goodwill in the State.
The PDP however regrets the factious and unseemly utterances and threat of bloodshed in the state by Governor Amaechi should he not be allowed to carry out his envisioned revolution.
“Inasmuch, as we are a peaceful and law abiding people, we’ll not fold our hands watching a lunatic to take the entire state for a ride because of his inordinate ambition of ascending to the office of the Vice President as promised him by the APC.
We therefore urge the state police commissioner and all the security agencies in the state and the country at large to keep a tap on Governor Amaechi and his cohorts to ensure nobody is taken awares as he is plotting”, the PDP stressed.
The Party also states for the umpteenth time that no member of the PDP would have been at the airport today to receive the APC members, describing all the attendees as either APC members like their master, Amaechi or the rented crowd who were there to earn their pay.
