APC Stalwarts In Amaechi’s Ubima Town Swamp To PDP.

The Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, received the greatest shock of his life, as over 100 members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, from his community, at Ubima,

in Ikwerre Local Gov­ernment Area of Rivers State, defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Ameachi’s kinsmen, accused him of being nonchalant to the plight of his people, adding that, despite producing Amaechi, a two time Governor, Speaker, and now a Minister, yet the community had no meaningful project to show for it.

According to one of the decampees who gave his name as Anthony Dike, he said: “We are swamping to PDP today, because our brother, Rotimi Amaechi, has not done anything in Ubima where he comes from. The youths are not empowered. You can see that the community lacks development, and as Governor and now Minister, Amaechi did not attract development to Ubima”.

However, the PDP in the State, has called for the sack of the Amaechi, for showing disrespect to the office of the Acting Presi­dent, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, during the recent visit of the Acting President to Port Harcourt, to commis­sion projects.

The Publicity Secre­tary of the party, Samuel Nwanosike, made the call during the official recep­tion of hundreds of APC decampees in Amaechi’s community of Ubima. He alleged that the former State Governor broke pro­tocol twice, thereby demonstrating disloyalty to the Ag. President.

He expressed worry over the conduct of the Minister at the Port Har­court International Air­port, Omagwa, and when Prof Osinbajo wanted to go for project commissioning, insisting that the behaviour was condem­nable.

“A few days ago, we were at the Port Harcourt Inter­national Airport, to receive the Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo. It will surprise you to know that somebody who is a serving Minister, would have the gut to disrespect the Acting President of Nige­ria, by breaking the pro­tocol, abandon Traditional Rulers and government functionaries lined up for protocol and salute before the Acting President, and ran into a Chopper that was waiting for the Acting President.”
