While the crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress(APC), continues to fester at both the national and state levels, transport Minister Rotimi Amaechi, has finally opened up.
The Nation reports that former state Governor of rivers said, he knows nothing about the crisis rocking the party, as is speculated in some circles.
The Minister said that he was making every effort to stay away from politics.
He also warned his supporters and rivers residents to avoid violence, adding that violence is not the best way to solve any problem.
Speaking in a TV interview on Tuesday, June 23, the Minister said that the rule of law must be observed and maintained at all times.
About the crisis in his party he said: “what’s going on in APC, I don’t know what is happening in rivers state, I don’t know. What I have done is stay away from politics, even if I worry it will be internally; there is no one (in the party) who is a child, we are all adults.
I don’t want to get involved in politics. “Nigerians know me for my directness and honesty. Some see it as arrogance, some see it as brash, as it’s called. What should I say that I haven’t said before? “This is the internal dynamics of politics, this is an internal struggle.
So, I have already said this several times, when we were at war in 2015, I said that this country cannot continue on the same path as it is now. I’m not helpless, but I do what they call ” Sidon’s gaze.””
“I believe that no matter how angry you are, no matter how institutions are manipulated, a judge once said: “I’m allowed to make mistakes, that’s why you have an appeals court, that’s why you have a Supreme court.’
So if you think the state’s judicial system is doing the wrong thing, you go to the court of Appeals, you go to the Supreme court and guarantee that you exhaust due process.
“My children and brothers know that I am not the person who will break the law. So I will not come and help you if you are my brother or son and take the law into your own hands.”
Meanwhile, earlier it was reported that after his removal from the post of national Deputy Secretary of the APC, the militant self-proclaimed acting National Chairman of the Party, Victor Giadom, returned fire on his critics.
As reported, Giadom said on Monday, June 22, during a press conference that the only way out of the ongoing leadership crisis in the party is to convene the National Executive Council (NEC).
Speaking to reporters at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja, the embattled APC leader said it was time to refer the party to a higher authority, as unresolved issues are outside the National Working Committee (NWC).
