More Blood To Flow: Amaechi Vows That  APC Must Win Rivers Re-Run At All Costs

The embattled Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, on Saturday, November 12 issued a statement vowing that candidates of the All Progressives Congress will win the December 10 Rivers re-run at all costs.

Amaechi who spoke at a rally in Bera in Gokana local government area, the hometown of All Progressives Congress(APC) Rivers South East Senatorial candidate, Magnus Abe vowed to resist any form of intimidation and threat from any quarters. He promised that the APC will match whatever antics and strategies deployed by the Governor Nyesom Wike during the exercise.

The minister also urged supporters never to succumb to the threats and intimidations of Wike. He said the APC cannot afford to lose any seat in the senatorial district, especially the four Ogoni councils of Khana, Gokana, Eleme and Tai.

According to him, “If there is one place APC that shouldn’t campaign[in], it is Ogoniland but Wike said he must win here. It is not as if he is God. Only God can say that but since he is not God, he will fail. Wike can never be God. The battle is not in Ogoniland but in the Ikwerre and Ahoada axis. So he had better forget here [Ogoniland]. He said he will deploy everything. Anything he wants to deploy let him deploy, we will deploy our own.”

Charging APC supporters to square up to Wike and the PDP, Amaechi said: “Do not behave like democrats who went to sleep. Come out and vote.”

“The past elections, we took security for granted. This time, we will not take security for granted.”

“If Wike likes, let him come out. At all times he had come out I used to ask does this man remember that he is a governor?”

“It is only a thug that can stand in front of a Judge’s gate to be struggling with security men, only a thug.”

“A governor will go back to his house and call the President. When SSS invaded the presidential lounge of Akwa Ibom state government, what the governor did was to call the President. Instead of Wike to call the President, he was struggling with security men. In all the fight I had with the Federal Government under former President Jonathan, nobody saw me physically battling with anybody.”

“When I became governor, there were many people appointed by Dr. Peter Odili. There were so many businesses by Odili people. I didn’t stop any. Wike is indeed a thug, not a governor. He doesn’t know what it takes to govern. The only way to show him that is in this election. After this election, he will not come this way again.”

He condemned the appointments of people with questionable character, including alleged cultists and killers into leadership positions across the state, stating they will be answerable to God one day.

“I will urge all of you if anybody threatens you, please threaten back because all Wike does is to come on the radio and you are scared. What are you scared of? ‘Oh they are rigging, oh I will  kill John,‘ ‘I will kill you this and that’. He will kill nobody. Wike ran away when armed robbers came to attack him at Garrison sometime back, meaning that he loves his life. He loves life and is killing people.”
