The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Rivers State chapter, has slammed a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka, for blaming the crisis in the PDP on the actions of Governor Nyesom Wike.
Eze, a loyalist of the Transport Minister, Chibuike Amaechi, in his recent piece, said Wike and not the National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, was to blame for the crisis rocking the PDP.
Eze in a statement in Port Harcourt, said the bickering and political hustling of Wike and Secondus were geared towards producing a northern presidential candidate for the PDP in the 2023 general election.
He, however, said such scheming was unsupported, as it remained inimical to the unity and peaceful coexistence of Nigeria.
He expressed angst over Wike’s alleged plans to forceful take over the PDP, accusing the governor of wasting billions of Rivers money in the scheming.
But the PDP in Rivers State urged Eze to focus on his party, which it said was denied opportunity in 2019 to field candidates because of Amaechi’s emperor-like leadership style.
PDP Eze in a statement in Port Harcourt, said the bickering and political hustling of Wike and Secondus were geared towards producing a northern presidential candidate for the PDP in the 2023 general election.
PDP, in a statement by its state Publicity Secretary, Tambari Gbara, described Eze as an inconsistent character, whose political antecedent is stomach infrastructure.
The statement said he should advise Amaechi to settle with his fellow party man, Senator Magnus Abe, to make APC an opposition ahead of the 2023 poll. (The Nation)
