The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to disregard the desperate efforts by Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers State to tarnish the image of his predecessor in office, Rotimi Amaechi.
The party in a statement on Monday said the former governor is clean and untainted by corruption,
The statement, which was signed by its State Chairman, Dr. Davis Ibiamu Ikanya.read: . “We make bold to say that if there is any clean and spotless former governor in Nigeria, that person is Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, CON.
Anybody who knows Amaechi well enough would readily testify that he is an honest, sincere but courageous gentleman, a first-class patriot who is ever ready to go the extra mile to see that Nigeria becomes a better place for the present and future generations,”
Also,the party strongly condemned Chief Wike’s desperation to drag Amaechi’s name in the mud, the latest phase of which centres around a sponsored documentary on Amaechi being aired on Africa Independent Television (AIT). “
This satanic documentary is only part of Wike’s propaganda war against Amaechi for which the Care-Taker Governor of Rivers State has earmarked billions of naira in his wicked plot to destroy and decimate the person and character of Amaechi.
Other propaganda tools planned to be deployed in the war against Amaechi include sponsored publications such as advertorials, columns, editorials and OpEd articles in major international, national and local print media; sponsored personality discussion programmes in the electronic media and sponsored special documentaries for television and radio through independent groups and organisations>”.
