Rotimi Amaechi, a former minister of transportation, is accused of voting for Atiku Abubakar during the February 25 presidential election while still a member of the All Progressives Congress, according to Mr. Tony Okocha, a former chief of staff to the Rivers State government and a member of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council in Rivers State.
Okocha claimed Amaechi had long since left the party and that his acts represented the height of anti-party activity.
On Sunday, he revealed this to reporters in Port Harcourt.
Amaechi, according to Okocha, is no longer in charge of the APC in Rivers State.
According to Okocha, it is undeniable and evident that our former leader, Rt Hon. Rotimi Amaechi, was elected party leader because he was a Federal Republic of Nigeria minister in office at the time.
He instructed his supporters to cast their votes for the PDP’s presidential nominee “a day before the presidential election.”
“As for himself, we have it on record that he supported Atiku, the PDP candidate.
“It disqualifies him as a leader,” Okocha said. “I, on the other hand, am now in charge of the APC in Rivers State having won the poll with my group for our presidential candidate.”
Remember that Atiku came second in the presidential election.
The former Vice President was behind APC’s Bola Tinubu, who won the election with over 8 million votes.
