Resign now, Rivers PDP tells Amaechi

Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on Transportation Minister, Chibuike Amaechi to resign, for   allegedly  trying to bribe two justices of the Supreme Court,  John Iyang Okoro and  Sylvester Ngwuta.


Chairman of the party in the state, Chief Felix Obuah, who spoke in Port  Harcourt, yesterday through his media aide, Jerry Needam said the  minister had  no moral justification to remain in office after the bribery allegation.

Obuah also called on relevant authorities to, immediately commence  investigation into allegations against Amaechi and  urged President Muhammadu Buhari to prevail on him to resign  from the Federal Executive Council.

The PDP chairman said the party was shocked at the extent Amaechi allegedly attempted to influence the mandate given by the electorate, to governors  of  the affected states and added that the revelations  further  vindicated the state chapter of the party, as it has always complained of the activities of Amaechi and some of the APC members in the state.

“We demand thorough investigation into these revelations by these justices of  the Supreme Court,  and  call on Amaechi to resign immediately, as  he lacks the moral rectitude to remain in office as a public servant,” Obuah  insisted.

  1. Good for him


  2. Resign for what


  3. Don’t mind them


  4. If a candidate was caught cheating in a University examination and she alleged that one of the lecturers had tried to sleep with her previously, that is a weighty allegation that demands investigating. However, that doesn’t in any way suffice to set the candidate free. She has committed an offence that must be investigated, and if found guilty, disciplined appropriately as well. The Judges should stop whipping up public sympathy. They should face their charges and defend themselves in court. They lost some credibility when they decided not to complain immediately these events happened.
