Amaechi: Wike has been put to shame – Rivers APC

…Hails Nigerians for celebrating Ex-Governor’s legacies

The Caretaker Governor of Rivers State, Chief Nyesom Wike, has been put to shame by the large crowd of Nigerians from all walks of life who gathered at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, on Monday to honour the immediate past Governor of Rivers State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, and celebrate his legacies.

“By turning out in large numbers to honour Ex-Governor Amaechi and through their touching testimonies at that grand reception put together by Amaechi’s Committee of Friends, Nigerians have spoken with one loud voice, shaming Chief Nyesom Wike, who has devoted the past two months of his illegal occupation of the Government House in Port Harcourt to wage an unnecessary war against the man who made him politically in a desperate bid to tarnish his reputation,” the Rivers State Chapter of APC said in a statement signed by the Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya.

The party condemned Wike’s witch-hunting of Amaechi, noting that it is a classic case of one biting the finger that once fed him. “We are, however, not perturbed by Wike’s antics because, as we have pointed out time without number, the Caretaker Governor is hounding an innocent man and his efforts to rubbish and pull down Amaechi, who is his political mentor, will turn out to be futile,” Rivers APC said.

It drew Wike’s attention to the testimonies of important political leaders at the reception for Amaechi, all of whom acknowledged the former Rivers State Governor to be an incorruptible Nigerian patriot. “We are grateful to Nigerians for taking their stand on the side of the truth on the Amaechi issue. Our special thanks go to President Muhammadu Buhari for his continued confidence in Amaechi, as well as to Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo, Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, his Plateau State counterpart, Rt. Hon. Barr. Simon Bako Lalong, President Buhari’s wife, Aisha Buhari, and the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, for publicly identifying with Amaechi and testifying to his unimpeachable character,” Rivers APC said.

It advised Wike to bury his head in shame as the overwhelming positive declarations in Amaechi’s favour means that his plot to pull down his predecessor has hit the rocks as earlier predicted by the party.

Campaign Posters: Orchestrated Plot To Disparage Nyesom Wike Uncovered

Posted on August 23, 2013. Filed under: Breaking News, Press Release | Tags: |

The office of the Minister of State for Education, Barr Nyesom Wike says it has uncovered campaign posters in circulation with the photograph of the Hon Minister purporting his declaration for the 2015 Governorship election for Rivers State.

A statement signed by the Special Assistant on Media to the Minister, Simeon Nwakaudu said this is an orchestrated plot by the minister’s political opponents and hired mercenaries to disparage Hon (Chief) Nyesom Wike.


The statement described those behind the circulation of such posters as bad losers because the Rivers people and indeed, all Nigerians are better informed and too knowledgeable to be deceived by such fluke, stressing that the action has no other motive than to present the Honourable Minister of State for Education as an over-ambitious politician.

While urging the members of the public to disregard these posters wherever they are being circulated, the statement noted that they have nothing to do with the Honourable Minister, who could not have indulged in any act aimed at flouting the ban on 2015 political campaign, INEC, and is in a better position to know than his avowed enemies.

The statement warned these plotters to desist from the cheap blackmail aimed at over-heating the polity, reassuring that the Honourable Minister, Barr Wike is too committed to the success of the Transformation Agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan to indulge in frivolities.
