Amaechi’s Deputy, Ikuru, dumps APC, joins PDP

Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.

The Deputy Governor of Rivers State, Tele Ikuru, has dumped the state’s ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to join the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, reliable sources have told PREMIUM TIMES.

Mr. Ikuru, who was one of Governor Rotimi Amaechi’s major ally, is said to have announced his defection in Port Harcourt, the state capital at about 4 p.m.

The decampee was first elected deputy governor to Celestine Omehia in 2007, before the duo was removed by the Supreme Court less than six months in office. When Mr. Amaechi was sworn in as governor, he retained Mr. Ikuru as his deputy and the duo fought against the interests and allies of the former governor of the state, Peter Odili.

At the time Mr. Amaechi fell out with the leadership of the PDP and defected to the APC with majority of his aides, Mr. Ikuru remained loyal to the governor and fought on the same side.
A source from the Brick House, Port Harcourt, who pleaded not to be named because he is not authorised to speak on the matter, told PREMIUM TIMES, that Mr. Ikuru has left the APC.

“I can tell you that the deputy governor has defected to the PDP. He has already informed the governor about it and may soon address a press conference,” the source said.

Attempts to reach the media aides to the deputy governor failed as they would not pick calls or respond to text messages to their telephones.

Mr. Ikuru’s defection could further polarise the already volatile political situation in Rivers that has pitted loyalists of Mr. Amaechi against those of the PDP governorship candidate, Nyesom Wike, who himself is a former ally to the outgoing governor.

            We don’t want him because he is leading a government of ethnicity and failure. Failure in almost everything. Government of thieves, “corruption is not stealing”.
            If you plan civil war as you have been killing innocent, God of 175 million people will not allow you to succeed. Perhaps is time when another cancer in Nigeria will be removed, this time around TOTALLY !!

    Amaechi is cursed and will remain cursed with his party APC—–in Rivers state

    • Uzoma John

      The beauty of democracy is for people to choose where they want to belong or support unhindered. You are the cursed one because you have sold your conscience to crumbs by taking up this e-rat assignment, peddling lies. Leave Amaechi alone. Ikuru decides where he wants to pitch his tent. Amaechi will not fight Ikuru for decamping. That makes him a democrat. Unlike your Jonathan who fights everyone- he fought Amaechi, he fought Tambuwal, he is fighting virtually anyone that rejects his Dollar bribe. I dey laugh o. GMB our President come March 28.

    Tension in APC Camp As Court May Disqualify Buhari Over Forged Certificate.

    **Test Dept of the National Office of the WAEC in Ghana re-confirms that Buhari’s name and records were not in its examinations archive.

    There is tension in the opposition All Progressives Congress as a Federal High Court in Abuja, presided over by Justice Abdu Kafarati, has given an order for accelerated hearing in a suit brought by a non-governmental organisation, Global Center for Conscious Living Against Corruption, asking for an order of mandamus to compel the Inspector General of Police to investigate allegations of forgery and perjury against the party’s presidential candidate, Gen Muhammadu Buhari.

    In the suit number FHC/ABJ/CS/172/2015, filed by Professor Andrew Chukwuemerie, SAN, the plaintiffs are seeking the order of the court to order police investigation into the “alleged acquisition and possession of the West African School Certificate by Gen. Muhammad Buhari at Provincial Secondary School, Katsina in view of non-production of the said School Certificate of certified true copy thereof”.

    • Curseless

      Go and write it down, that is just your wishful thinking.

    • Uzoma John

      This is no news. March 28 is around the corner. You better go and mobilize vote for Jonathan if you can. If you are waiting for any court to disqualify our President in-waiting, you will wait forever. GMB our President come March 28.

      OP

  • tatafo

    This deputy must have realized though almost belatedly, that he was destined to end up with the Judas Iscariot of Port Harcourt in the same manner and fashion as the Judas Iscariot of Judea. That his alien first name beginning with “R” is his problem. Who says names don’t matter?

    Now his prayers that hitherto were an abomination will become like incense from the rooftops. Whatever he touches henceforth shall be blessed. So shall it be to those who are blessed on land and in their waters, the presence of a Judas not withstanding.

    • dIMKU12

      lol!

  • John

    The beginning of the end of Amaechi, Our modern day “Judas Iscariot.” Glad to receive you in the party of true progressives, Engr Tele Ikuru

  • Jossy J

    Amechi should have seen this coming. Since the political crisis started in rivers state it is obvious this deputy is a traitor. he’s body language has always said it all. he decamp because he was not given the apc gov party’s ticket. he will come back when peterside wins because rivers people cannot vote a cultist wike as gov. wike and his kitchen cabinet, evans bipi, ateke tom, tompolo, asari dokubo, boylof, cannot run a competent government if elected.

      “Jonathan will win 24 states; including Lagos” –

      Says Brookings Institute in America

      A Washington-based influential think-tank in the United States of America (USA),
      the Brookings Institution, has said the odds in Nigeria’s presidential election favor
      President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Though the
      election is expected to be very competitive, the odds still favor President Jonathan.
      The Brookings report gives the PDP victory in 24 states, and predicts victory for the
      APC only in 12 states.

      • Tunsj

        Keep on dreaming. Brooking Institution is not a polling firm.

        • onugha

  • Curseless

    I have read about Ikuru’s reasons for defecting to PDP. The question however is that since 2007 he has worked with the Governor and when Amechi moved to APC he found nothing wrong with APC until few days to election. If I were you Ikuru I will just keep quiet because all that you are saying don’t make sense.

  • Breaking News

    Why Ikuru defected from Amaechi in Rivers State…..

    Kevin, Charlyn & Kimberly Associates, a UK based research

    and political risk consultancy firm has stated that incumbent

    President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party

    will win the 2015 Presidential election with a margin of 13% probability.

    • Pere

      That means 63% of all the votes for PDP and the remainder 37% of the votes for APC.
      In my own view, that margin of disgraceful defeat is enough reason for Ikuru to defect.

    • Seriuosly_speaking

      I agree with you Bro…but my only disagreement is the useless UK research whatever….

      Isn’t there any consulting firm in Nigeria capable of giving us a forecast? Come on!!!!! How long would we be tied to the smelling colonial apron strings of Britain? …

      Tell me of a pool conducted by Nigerians in Warri, Uyo, Markurdi or Ibadan. These will be more accurate.

        A vote for Buhari is a vote for backwardness. GEJ all the way!

        • Uzoma John

          Your GEJ is the backwardness Nigeria is facing. Is Nigeria better off 6 years ago. The answer Is a big yes. I wonder how a man of integrity will be seen as backwardness as against a corrupt and inept Jonathan. I wonder how a man even as Head of State does not own a house in Abuja nor does he have an oil block be called backward as against someone who said he has no shoes and suddenly forgot his background by being anti-people AND NOW DINES AND WINES with criminal and exconvicts. I wonder how a President who is distributing Dollars to tribal militant groups, traditional rulers and the clergy to win election is seen as forward moving. I wonder how a President who duped (with attendant deaths) the unemployed youths of Nigeria over =N=1billion for non-existing Immigration job is seen to be progressive. I wonder how a President who allowed Boko Haram to kill over 15000 Nigerians and took charge of over 24 Local Govt Areas in the NorthEast be adjudged a progressive. I wonder how a President who denied that the Chibok girls were kidnapped by BH only realized it was real after over 14 days be allowed to continue to be CinC. I wonder how a President who sees stealing as corruption will be adjudged to be forward looking. My friend eat your last crumb and embrace change or head to exile like your other peers are preparing to do after March 28. It took America the arrival of 74 year old Ronald Reagan for things to turn around for good for Americans during his time. We are voting Buhari. I want a bright future for me and my generation, not this criminal enterprise called Jonathan’s government.

      “It will be a disaster for all of Africa if Buhari is elected”

      “Mr. Muhammadu Buhari’s election as Nigeria’s head of state
      would be a disaster for Africa. It would also signal trouble for the
      West’s fight against ISIS and terrorism throughout the Middle East.
      Western foreign policy observers, pre-occupied with the rise of ISIS
      of ISIS in the Middle East should wake up to the reality unfolding in Nigeria.

      Opposition candidate General Buhari wants Sharia law throughout Nigeria.
      In fact, he wants it everywhere. “I will continue to show openly and inside
      me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over
      Nigeria,
      ” Mr. Buhari said. “God willing, we will not stop the agitation for
      the total implementation of the Sharia in the country [Nigeria]
      .”

      Agitation? Is this an indication that Mr. Buhari supports violence because
      the end goal of the terrorist attacks throughout Nigeria and Africa is an
      Islamic state? It is a legitimate question that should be asked by
      leaders of the Obama administration.”

        Not all white men that open their mouth have intelligence or command respect. Richard Grenell is a disgruntled Republican politician who has no relevance in American politics. He is simply a nobody or expert to comment on Nigeria.

        Grenell was fired and disgraced from the 2012 Romney Presidential campaign. Just google his name and you will read that he is a nobody. He is simply looking for relevance. Those who command respect in American politics have dismissed Jonathan, the list include Hillary Clinton, John McCain, New York Times, Washington post and past American ambassadors to Nigeria.

    Ikuru defected because he thought he was to be nominated the Governorship candidate of APC in Rivers State. We wish him well in PDP. That makes APC a mature and democratic party. Did you hear that Amaechi saw Ikuru’s defection as a do die affair unlike what other PDP Governors are doing to their Deputies who left for the APC. GMB our President come March 28.

  • F.

    This is a non-story. Tele Ikuru and Uche Secondus, the Deputy National Chairman of PDP are first cousins, he was always in the PDP corner but never really had the balls to decamp. I guess with 6 days left to go and nothing to lose he felt the coast was clear

    He’s just one PVC he doesn’t determine anything unless you are telling me the people of Rivers are illiterate to the point they can’t for themselves or determine their future. I can defect like him too but what has that got to do with the next man?….lol…. I dey laff

  • Dafe

    See guys, let’s say the truth. Premium Times contributors are evil.
    They caused this defection in Rivers state. They will post things
    that can discourage somebody. Why will Ikuru not defect after
    reading very bad comments on Premium Times?
    See this one for example:

  • Tufiakwa

    For months, I have watched the disappointment and anguish written on his boss, the Rivers State Governor’s face, as he stood beside illiterate, certificate forger, Muslim Brotherhood apologist, Bokohari. Amaechi will be the next to return to his party, PDP. By the way, this is Propaganda Times writing English: “Mr. Ikuru, who was one of Governor Rotimi Amaechi’s major ally….” One of …ally? Propaganda is not journalism.

    • Abdul

      Failure await you next week, we heard that your president is afake Dr. Uniport claimed he obtain his doc degree from their school but they want allow anybody access to his supervisor, thesis or any work he has done. A president who claim to be a doctor but lied.

        How many other theses have you seen in your life, mai suya.

      • Ogechukwu

        ‘You appears not to even appreciate what we are doing’ –

        ‘How much did Nwobodo stole?’

        These are quotable quotes from the brainless ogogoro quaffing dumbo from a Otuoke who claims to have a PhD in Pool Forecast though without thesis.

    I HATE JONATHAN WITH PASSION

    President Jonathan never ceases to annoy me. Some coup plotters met in secret last month.
    Their coup plans later leaked. They were plotting to overthrow or and kill President Jonathan.
    Wole Soyinka got wind of this coup plot last month. Like a responsible elder, Wole Soyinka
    phoned President Jonathan to let him know a plot for interim government was afoot via a coup.
    Since then, President Jonathan has not arrested anyone listed present at that coup plot meeting.
    What sort of human being is this Goodluck Jonathan? Is he earnestly yearning for coup or what?

    • n.d. warrior

      WE KNOW THOSE PLANNING THE COUP – WE KNOW THEM ALL;
      ALL WE ARE SAYING IS THAT THEY CAN NEVER SUCCEED TO
      REPLACE JONATHAN AND ESCAPE WITHOUT ANSWERING THIS:

      @wahala aware U are an Ibo man expressing yr deep seated anger 4 the ijaws over the civil war—that u lost—–with your childish comments—President Jonathan is not from the 3 major tribes–of Fulani –Ibo and Yoruba-in 9ja——he is a minority—-If the security agencies find any wanting-they will act without the consent of even Jonah–So why dont u ask yourself why its only those from the SS that go to jail in Nigeria-for corruption? Besides which Fulani man was ever jailed by Buhari –IBB ati OBJ for corruption? Not one-Jonathan is in aso rock by the grace of the Almighty God—Buhari has commited more human right crimes than shekau–the leader of boko haram——But because he is an untouchable-Fulani, he can vie for the post of president without a certificate–Enlisted into the army with ordinary letter of recommendation—can an ijaw man do such in 9ja and not have him crucified? –What abou the Yorubas who sold Akintola and Abiola—-to the Fulanis—–ati the post of speaker——-are they at war with them—–Fulanis—animal

    GOODBYE APC

    “Ever since, as the true nature and motives of APC are unveiled, I have continued to twist and turn in extreme mental and emotional agony. The more I struggled to belong, the more the Rivers man in me rejects the APC.

    “After carefully studying, interacting and analyzing the leadership of the party, I have come to the sad conclusion that the APC is a party of rebels, insurgents and anarchists, clothed in robes of pretence and deceit. APC is a party founded on deception and it thrives on unholy propaganda and falsehood.

    “I, therefore, on behalf of my teaming supporters, and my humble self denounce the APC and we all jointly and
    severally resign our membership of the APC.

    “My dear people of Rivers State, we of this generation will not in good conscience expect forgiveness and compassion from our forebears, posterity, and the spirit of our unborn generations if it is recorded in the annals of history that after 48 years of Rivers people supporting leaders from all other parts of this country with our votes and resources, we were the same that witch hunted and hounded down the very first ever president from this region, granted us by providence. I wash my hands off the treachery.

    “In the light of the above, I wish to urge all my supporters, the good people of Rivers State to join hands with others to vote for President Jonathan and the transformation agenda that has brought so much relief and succor to the greatest number of Nigerians” …………….. Engr. Tele Ikuru ….. Deputy Governor of Rivers State

    This is the end of Amaechi and APC in Rivers state——–every piece of information which will be used as evidence to nail Amaechi and the drug addicts in APC will be explored—-by the secuirty agencies-what is Amaechi waiting for now? This is a big blow to the soul and heart of the janjaweeds in APC who have been stealing the resources of the rivers people—-for certificate forgers like buhari————APC is finished politically in rivers state and the niger delta as a whole—

  • the truth

    Amaechi the traitor. Posterity would judge you. After elections and your immunity stripped then you would account for all rivers people money you have stolen.

    The only way APC will win this election is if JEGA has already compromised by playing a dirty game with the server. JEGA seems to be not sincere in this game between APC and PDP.
