The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, supporting the African Action Congress (AAC) in the Rivers governorship election, cannot be described as anti-party.
The spokesperson of the party, Lanre Isa-Onilu, made this known while speaking to newsmen on Wednesday.
When asked to state the position of the party regarding Amaechi’s actions, Isa-Onilu replied: “I will emphatically say no because if you liken it to the situation in Imo and or Ogun states, it will be wrong.
“In Rivers state, APC does not have any candidate and as a party, Rivers state is very important to us. The state has been in the hands of pillagers for too long.
“If we have the opportunity of working with a party willing to abide by our principles, then it is within our right to work with such a party to ensure we free the people of Rivers state from the locusts.”
