The Rivers State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has faulted the President’s selection of former Governor of the state, Rotimi Amaechi, as the Minister of Transportation.
The state chairman of the PDP, Felix Obuah says Amaechi is a misfit who does not support any development plan that does not have his endorsement or that of his associates.
Obuah said Amaechi’s attitude is far from good for any state or people and his appointment puts a tint on Buhari’s fight against corruption.
“Rivers State has an appreciable number of qualified, prudent and humble sons and daughters with burning desire to move the State forward and help promote the existing peace and love among the people which Gov. Wike has graciously put in place in only five months in office.
“We’ll therefore be happy to have the federal government or any other agency that means well for the State to always pick from this pool of resourceful and more enterprising human capital other than those with penchant for misleading, mishandling and mismanaging the scarce resources of the State as exemplified by the Amaechi administration.
“Allegations of mismanagement of public funds during Amaechi’s stint as Governor of Rivers state came up strongly when Gov. Wike assumed office some months ago.
“It would seem not only Rivers state chapter of the PDP share this sentiment against the former governor as all PDP senators walked out of the senate plenary session in protest during the screening of Amaechi for his ministerial appointment.”
