2019: Leadership Tussle Tears Rivers APC Apart


-Party Divided Into Three Camps-



All is not well within the camp of the All Progressive Congress(APC) in Rivers State over who will fly the party's Governorship Flag in 2019 Governorship Election.

The Disunity in the party was as a result of the fallout of events during the December 10 2016 National and State Assembly rerun Election in Rivers State where the APC Candidates cleared all the elective positions in Ogoni Land.

The Failure of the Minister of Transportation Mr Chibuike Amaechi to lead the APC to Victory in the Rivers East Senatorial District is not going down well with several forces within the Presidency.

A Top Presidential Source hinted PUO REPORTS Tuesday evening that Mr Amaechi may be a victim of the imminent cabinent shake up which is quit expedient in 2017.

The Source revealed that the Presidential assistance extended to Mr Amaechi during the December 10 2016 National and State Assembly rerun Election in Rivers State was the last.

"What else will the Federal Government do for Him? we have tried for him yet he didn't live up to our expectations" the Source said.

Investigations by PUO REPORTS has shown that forces at the Presidency wants Senator Magnus Abe,the recently elected Senator of Rivers South East Senatorial District to be the Rivers APC Governorship flag bearer for 2019.

But some loyalists of the Minister of Transportation Mr Chibuike Amaechi is rooting for the Current Director General of NIMASA Mr Dakuku Peterside who was the Governorship flag bearer of the party during the 2015 Governorship election in Rivers State.

Their reason it was gathered,was to ensure that Magnus Abe does not rise above Mr Chibuike Amaechi Politically,which according to them,may not be for the interest of the Party.

These forces has already started their plot by accusing Mr Mene Ienyie Derek, Executive Director/Head Finance and Administration | Rivers state at the Niger Delta Development Commission(NDDC) of alleged plot to divide the APC in Rivers State.

Another Camp within the Party Loyal to Mrs Ibim Semenitari,immediate Past Managing Director of NDDC,are working towards projecting her as sole Guber Candidate of the Party ahead of the 2019 Governorship Election in Rivers State.

The emergence of Sentor Magnus Abe is already reducing the Political Popularity of Mr Chibuike Amaechi,who is being seen as unfit to be called the Leader of the APC in Rivers State.

Both Magnus Abe and Mr Peterside are fighting for a supremacy battle over the soul of the All Progressive Congress in Rivers State.

Mr Dakuku Peterside had already declared himself Deputy Leader of the APC in Rivers State.

The Leadership tussle have disintegrated a lot of ranks in the Party including the New Media Team members of the Party who are now at Loggerheads with each Other.
