Search your conscience and drop dictatorship, RSG tells Amaechi

Minister of Transport Rt Hon Chubuike Rotimi Amaechi has been told to be man enough to search his conscience, drop his penchant for dictatorship and take blame for the crisis that has engulfed the APC in the State and leave Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike alone.
Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communications Emma Okah made this call Sunday in reaction to some uncomplimentary remarks made by the Minister against the State Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.
While addressing his party supporters at Rumueme Civic Centre in Obio/Akpor LGA Rt Hon Amaechi said: "Wike is panicking, sponsoring APC members to cause confusion, he must go in 2019."
Okah described Amaechi as a confused man who is yet to learn that dictatorship has no place in a democracy. 
"Rt Hon Amaechi is the problem of APC in Rivers State. He is the one who dictates when members can aspire to hold any office; He is the one who has treated party members like they are his slaves and the consequence is that the party is factionalised into three camps" Okah said, noting that Gov Wike has no hand in the split that has befallen the APC in Rivers State. 
Continuing, Okah said "The present crisis rocking the APC originated from the Minister's insistence that a serving Senator has no right to aspire to be Governor of Rivers State and the unilatetal appointment of the Minister's Lagos business partner as the  preferred governorship candidate without regard to the right of other APC members to contest  party primaries. 
As if that is not enough, the Minister of Transport has forced the APC in the state to adopt the umpopular indirect primaries to achieve his narrow objective instead of the open primaries option demanded by majority of party members.
Amaechi has brought ant infested wood into his house  and he is reaping the visit of lizards, Okah added.
It is therefore reckless for the Minister to accuse Gov Wike of sponsoring crisis in APC unless the Minister is not aware that he cannot beat a child and expect him not to cry.
On whether Gov Wike has developed Rivers State, Okah said it is pointless arguing with a man who does not see what every one else sees; hear what others hear or feel what others feel, noting that Gov Wike holds the  gold medal in project execution among his peers since 2015
"Despite Amaechi's unsuccessful efforts to pull down the Gov  Nyesom Wike administration in the State, he has refused to show what he has done for Rivers State since he became a super Minister in 2015" Okah said, pointing out that Rivers people are not fooled by Amaechi's diversionary utterances but will demand accountability in due course.”
