A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has alleged that the state governor, Nyesom Wike, and former Senator representing Rivers South-East, Magnus Abe, are working with some forces to destroy the image of former Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi.
In a statement signed and issued by the APC Chieftain, Wike and Abe are using ‘witchcraft’ and ‘satanic elements’ to stop the elevation of Amaechi, who recently raised alarm raised of plots to smear his image.
Eze alleged that their plot was just to make him look unworthy of re-appointment as Minister by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Eze recalled that he had gotten wind of a multi-billion naira anti-Amaechi media project, for which the two main antagonists: Wike and Senator Abe, had allegedly acquired the services of popular media influencers, who would be anchoring the project through writings in the tabloids, using advertorials, opinions editorials, and in the broadcast and online platforms, appearing as guests speakers and news sources to push out the fabricated stories, cooked to injure the hard-earned image and personage of Amaechi.
He, however, described all the efforts of the alleged traducers of the former minister as acts of witchcraft, diabolical, wicked, unjust and unacceptable. He added:
“Amaechi has sacrificed much to enhance the politics of Nigeria. Apart from Amaechi serving as the Director General of the Buhari Presidential Campaigns, a role he had previously played in 2015 and happily delivered on both mandates as the president won his re-election in February, he has revolutionised the rail system in Nigeria.”
He urged Nigerians to ignore all the plots against Amaechi and encourage him to do more for the nation.
According to him, those who are working to run Amaechi down should go back to study his past political elevations as this latest plot will give way to the higher promotion of Amaechi in the next cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Each time Amaechi is about to be elevated to the next level, satanic elements always want to attack him, but they always fail just as they will surely fail again. He is an eagle that soars on storms.
“The latest plot by Wike and Abe and their external supporters is both futile and has come dead-on-arrival, just as it was the case in 2015”, Eze assured.
