The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State has recently lashed out at the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi due to his absence from the South-South stakeholders’ meeting with the presidential delegation held on Tuesday at the Rivers State Government House, Port Harcourt.
According to reports, Amaechi had been at the Port Harcourt airport to receive the delegation led by Prof. Ibrahim Gambari and escorted them to the Government House but failed to attend the meeting afterwards.
But the absence of Amaechi, a former Governor of Rivers State has raised questions from the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chapter in Rivers State.
In a statement released by Livingston Wechie, the media adviser to APC Caretaker Committee Chairman, Igo Aguma, the party explained that the Transportation Minister cannot justify his absence, and described it as “unfortunate.”
The party also stated that the Minister should tender an apology for his unfounded action to the people of Rivers State and his party.
According to the statement by the party;
“We condemn the absence of Rotimi Amaechi, the minister of Transportation from the South-South Stakeholders meeting with the Presidency which held in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, November 24, 2020.”
“The absence of the Minister of Transportation, who is supposed to be the minister representing Rivers State in the federal cabinet is most unfortunate as there can be no justification for his non-participation.”
“The action of Amaechi is an evidence of the type of divisive and selfish leadership he is giving the APC in the state which is solely aimed at destroying the party at all cost for his personal gain in keeping with his vows.”
