A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has declared that no amount of falsehood and propaganda will make the Minister of Transport, Hon Chibuike Amaechi, to quit the ruling party in the country.
Eze pointed out that Amaechi, a former Governor of Rivers State, sacrificed so much to assist in making APC whatever it is today.
The former spokesperson of the erstwhile group, the new Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), said this yesterday in response to reports in a section of the online media, where Amaechi was quoted as saying, “No Serious Party Has Approached Me (Amaechi) Yet”, as a prelude to his alleged move to defect from APC.
He described the said report as false, mischievous, ill-conceived and an improbable concoction from a devious and demented mind.
Eze categorically advised those propagating and promoting all manner of falsehoods against Amaechi to look for something better to do, as he further urged the public to ignore such a report as it emanated from people that are threatened by the high political profile of Amaechi, particularly the cordial relationship between him and President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to Eze, “no amount of falsehood and propaganda will cause Amaechi to leave APC no matter the odds as Amaechi sacrificed his blood to assist in making APC whatever it is today”.
He advised those behind propagating and promoting all manner of falsehoods against Amaechi “to look for something better to do”.
Eze expressed happiness that most of the time that such fabricated lies are being peddled, “President Buhari normally laughs it over, wondering who will come between him and his son (Amaechi) in whom he is well pleased”.
He pointed out that Amaechi has two gigantic projects at hand which are “to deliver on his core mandates as the Minster of Transportation – drive Nigeria’s transportation system to a global height through massive infrastructure development and as the Director General of Buhari/Osinbajo Presidential Campaign Organisation to deliver President Muhammadu Buhari at the APC Presidential Primary, then, at the Presidential election proper”.
