The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, asking its members to support African Action Congress (AAC) in the Rivers governorship election, cannot be described as anti-party.
APC’s National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Isa-Onilu, stated this while addressing journalists on Wednesday at their national secretariat in Abuja.
When asked to state the party’s position 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.”
