A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has appealed to Governor Nyesom Wike to “consider Sen. Abe as Commissioner for Information to replace Barr. Emma Okah.”

According to Eze, this is because Abe has “defended his [Wike] corrupt style of governance which has left the majority of Rivers people in squalor for the past four years, notwithstanding the billions of naira that hits the state coffers monthly from federal allocations and other internal sources of income generation.”

The APC chieftain, however, frowned at the governor for ignoring the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, faithful recommended by the State Party Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah for appointment as Commissioners.

This, he described as unfair, knowing what Obuah has suffered and contributed in the satanic grand plot to enthrone a PDP government in the State.

Eze, in a statement he signed and made available to THISDAY on Tuesday morning, counselled the National Reconciliation Committee of the APC as well as the Committee to be constituted by the South-South caucus, not to waste their time discussing any reconciliation issue with Sen. Abe.


According to him, Abe has completed his task of destroying the APC in Rivers State and is set to move on, particularly now that Governor Wike has accommodated his nominees amongst the thirteen Commissioner designates submitted for screening to the Rivers State House of Assembly and currently awaiting the appointment of portfolios.

The party chief commended Governor Nyesom Wike for openly appreciating the damages Abe has done to the soul of the Rivers APC to aid his reelection into the Brick House by appointing two key members of his small group – Dr. Peter Meedeh and Bariere Thomas as commissioner designates, awaiting portfolios.

He further averred that “Now that Abe is beginning to reap his harvests bountifully from the PDP and Gov. Wike on whose soil he toiled and sowed, I demand public apology from the former Senator, for all the public denials he has made against my position on his political fraternity with the opposition party in the state and other anti-party antics before, during and after the 2019 elections.


“Abe and few others had entered into a satanic alliance with Gov. Wike to cripple the party and allow the PDP an easy win with some mouthwatering and handsome rewards. Alas! It is saddening that the party fell prey to the trap of this evil genius and satanic saboteur.

“The efforts of the Rivers State Chapter of the APC towards the enthronement and sustainability of the party led Federal Government cannot be overestimated. In pursuance of this struggle, hundreds of members lost their lives, while others lost limbs. A large number of followers and supporters lost properties worth millions in the process.

“This, ordinarily places members of the party in Rivers State in a pedestal to be handsomely recompensed, but instead, the party has become a shadow of what it ought to be, having been engrossed in an endless and mindless internal crisis ignited by Abe, who represented the South-East Senatorial District of Rivers State”, he said.

He said three groups of people are the major beneficiaries of the well-thought-out and properly executed plot: “First, the PDP in Rivers State; with the crisis, the party contested and won the 2019 general elections unchallenged.

“Secondly, the internal forces within the APC; To this group, if they succeed in bringing Abe onboard the ship of Rivers governance, they would have rendered Rt. Hon. Amaechi irrelevant in the politics of Nigeria and the 2023 political game plan. To the glory of God, they failed as Amaechi has proved that he is the light of this administration.

“Thirdly, Sen. Abe; Abe was conscripted by the forces to fight the party to a standstill with the promise and hope that he will emerge leader of the party over and above Rt. Hon. Amaechi”, he said.
