APC Calls Plot To Force Amaechi To Resign ”Last Desperate Act”

Rotimi-Amaechi 600The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the reported plot abduct, blackmail and force Gov. Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers resign from office, calling it the last desperate act of those are bent on getting rid of the at all costs.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said plot, which was exposed by the Rivers Peoples Forum, should be taken very seriously, against the background of a similar occurrence in the
past and the outcry by Gov. Amaechi that his life is in danger.

”Anyone thinks this alarm by the Rivers Peoples Forum is outlandish should remember what happened then Anambra Chris Ngige, was abducted and rough handled in 2003 in what is undoubtedly the most egregious violation of democratic
institutions in our ’s history.

”The instigators and perpetrators of the crisis in Rivers are keenly aware that they are running out of options. Their impeachment plan has been foiled by the take over of the legislative
functions of the Rivers ’s functions by the the National Assembly, while their plan declare a of emergency in the has also failed, against the lack
of support for such act by the National Assembly.

”This is the reason for this last desperate act by an increasingly-desperate Presidency, which may not exclude a final solution. therefore, umpteenth time, calling on civil
society and human rights organizations, opinion leaders and indeed all lovers of democracy and believers in constitutional rule to intervene to stop the runaway culture of impunity
in Rivers State,” it said

APC said it is instructive that a day after the Rivers Peoples Forum exposed the plot against Gov. Amaechi, the so-called chair of the PDP in Rivers, Felix Obuah, set out to prepare the grounds devilish plot when he called a press conference to deliver a harangue
against Gov. Amaechi whom he accused of ”insulting and dragging the names of President GoodLuck and the First Lady, Dame (Dr) Patience Jonathan to the mud”.

”There can be no better confirmation of the evil plot than this,” the party said.

It also warned madness in Rivers State, which is carried out under the watch of the Presidency, which has made the state’s Police Commissioner the de facto with a clear instruction to neutralize the elected , should not be seen as an isolated incident, but as a part of a grand plot and a test run for 2015.

”As we have said before, the crisis in Rivers is deliberately orchestrated to test the waters ahead of the 2015 elections, with the belief that if the perpetrators get away with the impunity in the state, it can then be extended to other states before 2015 to ensure polls will be everything but free, fair and transparent, and also to satisfy the yearnings of a President who is obsessed with winning re-election.

”The daylight rape of democracy in Delta state on Oct. 12th by those who prevented elections from holding, only to announce concocted results, is also part of this plot. The new strategy is to use security agencies, especially the police and the military, to undermine democracy. We have not seen the last of these dangerous games, hence the for all to be vigilant,” APC said.
