APC threatens to expose Secondus for attacking Amaechi
The All Progressives Congress in Rivers State has warned the Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Uche Secondus, to leave the former Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, alone or be ready to be exposed.
The state APCâ€™s warning was contained in a statement by the State Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, in Port Harcourt on Sunday.
The party was reacting to Secondusâ€™ verbal attack on the ex-governor on Wednesday while receiving the report of the Senator Ike Ekweremadu-led committee on how to reform and reposition the former ruling party for the 2019 general elections.
APC noted that the PDP had not been able to recover from the shock of Amaechiâ€™s departure from the party (PDP), telling Secondus to desist from further attacking the APC leader in the state.
Rivers APC said, â€œWe appreciate the agony of Prince Uche Secondus, one of the key architects of PDPâ€™s loss of power after 16 years of misrule.
â€œWe 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.
â€œIt 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.â€
Rivers APC wondered why Secondus, rather than concentrate on the recommendations of the Ekweremadu committee and addressing the issues raised in the committeeâ€™s report on how to get back the PDP on track, chose to â€œplay to the galleryâ€ by asking President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate Amaechi.
According to the party, Amaechi has no skeleton in his cupboard, adding that the PDP chairmanâ€™s cupboard is full of skeletons.
The state APC 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.
