Amaechi Blasts Wike, Says APC Will No Longer Tolerate Molestation From PDP


Rivers State Governor and Chairman of the Nigeria's Governors Forum, Rt.

Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has called on the people of Akpor Kingdom to

vote out the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and Chief Nyesom Wike in the

2015 elections for allegedly desecrating the Akpor Kingdom, a strong hold

of the Ikwerre ethnic nationality in the state.
Amaechi stated this Weekend when he paid a courtesy call on the Nyenwe-Ali

Akpor Kingdom, His Royal Majesty Eze (Ambassador) A. A. Orlu Oriebe and at

the Launching/Foundation stone laying of the proposed Akpor Traditional

Centre at Ozuoba in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state.

He said, the unholy collaboration between supporters of PDP and Chief

Nyesom Wike, the PDP governorship flag-bearer to perpetuate the

molestation of the Nyenwe-Ali stool in Akpor Kingdom currently under the

kingship of Eze Orlu Oriebe with thugs and police, at the time when Mbu

Joseph Mbu was Commissioner of Police was practically illegal and an act

of disrespect to the traditional stools and elders of Ikwerre land.

According to him, “The All Progressives Congress, APC and my government

will no longer hear and tolerate that you are molested by the Peoples

Democratic Party, PDP. They only succeeded in molesting you during the

time when Mbu Joseph Mbu was Commissioner of Police. But, now, it is

time for the people of Akpor kingdom to allow the Riverine people of the

State produce the next Governor in 2015 and I am sure you will honour

this request”, Amaechi said.
He also promised to recognize traditional stools in the Obio/Akpor Local

Government Area before the expiration of his tenure in May, 2015.

“On my table, there are so many requests for the recognition of

traditional stools. I know that the Akpor kingdom occupies a high place

in the Ikwerre ethnic nationality. Your people have a duty to protect the

people occupying the traditional stools. Mgbueto stool will be recognized

for the benefit of the people in that kingdom in Obio/Akpor”, Amaechi

Governor Amaechi further urged the people of Akpor kingdom to brace up and

massively mobilize for the All Progressives Congress, APC in the 2015

elections as his administration is making frantic efforts to fix the

Ogbogoro road soonest.
“You must start now to build APC and massively mobilize for the party

ahead of the 2015 election: This is because I have done enough for the

people of Akpor kingdom. My administration fixed the Ozuoba-Choba road.

I even awarded 14 classroom blocks to Nyesom Wike at the cost of N112

million each. But, as You can see, he has not built even a building. He

worships money, while I worship God. President Goodluck Jonathan does not

like us, that is why we must vote out PDP and Jonathan back to Otuoke. I

have developed Ikwerre people, even Nyesom Wike. I will not stop calling

them thieves. My administration gave Nyesom Wike, the contract worth N2

billion to construct Eneka road and he disappeared with the funds”,

Amaechi said.
He also mentioned that his administration has paid all outstanding

salaries, assuring that payment of December salaries to workers will

commence on 23rd and 24th to enable workers proceed for the Christmas

Earlier, the Nyenwe-Ali Akpor kingdom, HRM Eze Orlu Oriebe, while

acknowledging Governor Amaechi as the First Executive Governor to visit

his palace, urged Governor Amaechi, to remain a guiding hand to Rivers

people by sustaining the current dividends of democracy in the state.

“I appeal to you and wish to state categorically that, no amount of

intimidation, suppression that will make me deviate from supporting

Governor Amaechi. I have been facing a lot of opposition from the PDP.

Thank God, Governor Amaechi has upgraded the Akpor stool to 1st class

stool. Please, also consider other neighbouring communities.”

Eze Oriebe further maintained that with an Akpor traditional centre, the

tradition, culture and artifacts of the kingdom will be preserved.

“I want to create history and as my Governor, I want you also to make

history by launching and engaging in the Foundation Laying Ceremony of the

proposed Akpor Traditional Centre. Time has come when we should have

Akpor traditional centre where our artifacts and documents would be

preserved. And after me, those to inherit the stool will begin from

there”, Eze Nyewe-Ali Akpor said.
Also speaking, the CTC Chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, Dr

Lawrence Chuku, said, he is optimistic that the proposed Akpor Traditional

Centre will serve as an administrative Centre of the Akpor Kingdom where

useful decisions are made by the people.
