Rivers APC chieftain alleges plot to hand over party to Wike


All Progressives Congress chieftain Eze Chukwuemeka Eze has vehemently criticized the dissolution of the party’s executive committee in Rivers State.

He has further alleged that the APC leadership is conspiring to cede control of the party in Rivers to Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State and a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, as an act of spite against former Rivers State governor Chibuike Amaechi.

According to The PUNCH, Eze, in a statement released on Saturday, asserted that the dissolution of the party’s executive committee was part of a deliberate plan to embarrass and undermine Amaechi.

He claimed that President Bola Tinubu and APC National Chairman Abdullahi Ganduje were orchestrating this plot to hand over the party’s structure in Rivers State to Wike and effectively sideline Amaechi and his supporters.

Furthermore, Eze cautioned those he labeled as the APC’s “cabal” to exercise prudence in their dealings with Wike, whom he described as a political opportunist.

He expressed concern that handing over the party’s leadership in Rivers to Wike would be a grave mistake that would ultimately harm the APC’s chances of success in the state.

Eze reminded Tinubu and Ganduje that Wike had previously caused significant damage to the APC in Rivers State.

“I am happy to note that both Tinubu and Ganduje have suffered and tasted the bitter pills of Wike in most of his attempts to decimate the party and to handover the party structure to him and his agents is nothing but sheer wickedness and unreasonableness because it will definitely backfire,” he said.

Eze further criticized the APC leadership for favoring Wike in recent appointments, stating that this was unjust given Wike’s past actions against the party.

He questioned the rationale behind rewarding Wike, who had “fought Rivers APC to a standstill with the resource of the state,” while neglecting Amaechi andhis loyal supporters.
