Rivers PDP uncovers plans by Amaechi to run away after elections


The Peoples Democratic Party, Rivers State chapter says it has uncovered clandestine moves by Governor Chibuike Amaechi to sneak out of the State when the All Progressives Congress loses the February 14 and 28elections.

This, the PDP argues is cowardly because it proves the outgoing governor as lacking the spirit of sportsmanship which is the hallmark of a good leader and politician.

Reacting to the development through a statement signed by the Special Adviser on Media to the State party chairman, Jerry Needam, the PDP said Amaechi’s discomfort  with the PDP governorship candidate, Chief Barr Nyesom Wike succeeding him and his preference to seek political asylum outside the country in the event of PDP’s sure victory raises a moral question on his integrity and claim for transparency.

According to the PDP, if (Amaechi) has nothing to fear for which he wants his surrogate, Dakuku Peterside to cover up for him, there would be no need for the anxiety which has gripped him.

This is simply suspect, the PDP reasons, warning that all Rivers people, contractors, creditors, consultants and business partners of Amaechi should take note as the PDP government is not ready to inherit any debts incurred under fraudulent and controversial circumstances when it has taken over office later this year.

    He better runs away. The same way Ayo Fayose will do soon. Both lack character of speech and I wonder how they became governors. They need to be mentored on public comments
