Chief Eze Chukwuemeka is a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and ally of the former Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi. In this interview with DENNIS NAKU, the former National Publicity Secretary of the defunct new Peoples Democratic Party speaks on the dissolution of the APC Rivers executive by the party’s National Working Committee and the political crisis in Rivers State

What is your opinion about the dissolution of the APC executive in Rivers State by the party’s National Working Committee?

 The dissolution is part of the ongoing efforts in a series to wane and totally demolish the political influence and legacies of Amaechi in Rivers State. The public should expect more in the coming months as the stage is set for the cabal to publicly display what has been strategically agreed upon behind closed doors.

In a statement, you said the dissolution was orchestrated by President Bola Tinubu and APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje to spite Rotimi Amaechi. Can you shed more light on that?

Yes. It was a grand ploy to demean Amaechi. It is a whole lot of conspiracy that doesn’t profit the Tinubu. Amaechi is not the problem of Nigeria. So I urge the President and his cabal to channel the energy they have deployed to execute their political scheme in Rivers, to curbing insecurity, ending hunger, solving the ever-rising and unbearable cost of living and its attendant frustration on Nigerians, and leaving Amaechi and his political family alone.

You said the plot is to hand over the state’s APC structure to the Federal Capital Territory Minister, Nyesom Wike, but Wike is not a member of the APC.

Well, in a literal sense, one may say Wike is not a member of the APC and has not formally declared his membership of the party; and again, you know, an individual cannot hold the membership of two political organisations at the same time. So it is a fact, firmly established that the former Rivers governor has yet to denounce his membership of the PDP even though he has constituted himself into a clog in the party’s wheel of progress. But the reality is that despite not being a member of the APC, he has been made the sole usufructuary of all the human and material investments of members of the party in Rivers State who strove so hard to nurture and prune the party to its fruitful stage despite stiff opposition from Wike and his circle. Lives and limbs of party faithful were lost in pursuit of the cause to enthrone good governance in Rivers State through the APC. The resistance was crippling; state resources, public institutions and other government apparatuses were deployed against us. But we kept faith because ours is a cause for justice and we had the people on our side. But because our leader, Chibuike Amaechi is so hated by the cabal, we were denied the support needed to pull through. To demonstrate the hate, the national leadership of the party ordered the National Legal Adviser to withdraw the APC as a party to the petition of our governorship candidate, Tonye Cole, at the Rivers State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal. The court used the discontinuance of the APC as a springboard to deny us justice in our meritorious petition. That is an obvious conspiracy and the President is happy because he is part of the plan. All of this is because he sees Amaechi as a rival so empowering Wike will whittle down his political influence in Rivers State.
