Buhari/Amaechi ticket: Mind your business, Rivers APC tells presidency

The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has asked the Nigerian presidency to stay away from the internal decision processes of its party.

In a statement, the spokesperson of the APC in Rivers state, Eze Chukwuemeka, on Sunday asked presidential aide, Doyin Okupe, to stop meddling into the affairs of the APC.

Mr. Okupe had on Thursday posted a tweet saying that a joint ticket involving APC’s presidential flag bearer, Muhammadu Buhari, and the Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi, as Vice President, would be a “fatal error”.

In his response, Mr. Chukwuemeka said “This is an issue that does not concern Dr Okupe, who is not a stakeholder in APC but the fact remains that if Buhari/Amaechi ticket is a fatal error then Jonathan/Sambo ticket is not only a disaster but an ectopic pregnancy that must be evacuated to save the life of the mother, in this case our nation.

“Anyone who fails an examination is asked to repeat; but when the failure is so dismal the person is asked to leave as Nigerians are asking President Jonathan and VP Sambo to leave as they have not only failed woefully but have endangered our nation to the extent that the need of Buhari/Amaechi ticket becomes imperative to save our nation from imminent extinction,” Mr. Eze said.

He also said Mr. Okupe’s comment is a sign of cowardice by the Presidency, “which lives in perpetual fear of Mr. Amaechi and has been having nightmares since news filtered out that Mr. Amaechi is in strong contention to emerge as Mr. Buhari’s running mate,” Buhari/ Amaechi ticket the best
Mr. Eze also stated that a Buhari/Amaechi ticket in 2015 is APC’s best bet of removing the PDP from power.

“With the myth surrounding Buhari combined with the bravery and sagacity of Gov. Amaechi, PDP’s days in the Aso Presidential Villa will surely become history by 2015.

“It is left to the APC power brokers to give a chance to this union if they are serious about ending the embarrassment that PDP has become in the politics of our nation,” he said of the opposition party that is yet to pick a running mate for its presidential candidate.

Mr. Eze said the APC is currently made up of two groups: the legacy parties, comprising of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples party, Action Congress of Nigeria, and Congress for Progressive Change; and the equity group who were members of the ‘new PDP’.

    • tundemash

      wetin concern agbero with overload? Why is PDP and their e-rats interested in how and who APC chooses as its V.P.? So much noise was made about Buhari before the APC primaries and yet Buhari was chosen in an open transparent primaries and now the mud-slinging has shifted to who he and his party chooses as his V.P.
      Why take panadol for another person’s headache ?????????

      Why can’t you guys dispense your energy in preparing Dumbo for the Presidential debate … we won’t accept him dodging and debating Dbanj this time around O !

      • Sword of Damocles

        when you say “preparing Dumbo for the Presidential debate”, I take it you speak of “sapele water”. LOL. i am ready to bet that if there is a debate, President Skelewu will loaded to bare on kain-kain, roaring to let loose on Mai Gaskaya on the “advantages” of his dreaded “transformation” agenda and the benefits(egunje) of TAN.

        • Wähala

          The fear is real for them to be interested in who’s the number two to Buhari…
          Since when have elections been won on the strength of the Vice Presidential candidate, biko?
          As usual, na panic reaction from a rattled presidency. The nail in their coffin will come during the week when aggrieved and scammed PDP members start defecting to the opposition now that the courts have exonerated the Gov. who earlier defected. Hahaha, indeed!

        Pdp is seriously panicking, them and their Pippigs online, They don’t have anything else to say.

        All they say is

        1, Buhari is a Jihadist

        2, Buhari is a terrorist,

        3, Buhari is an extremist.

        4, Buhari is Bokoharam

        5, Buhari is corrupt

        6, Buhari is to old

        7, Buhari can never be president

        8,Buhari has nothing to offer

        For only one man, wait and see more

        9, Buhari’s 2007 Campaign Funding Came From Libya And Saudi.

        10, BUHARI Is A Crying Galago

        11,A Vote For Buhari Is A Vote For Tinubu

        12, Buhari is a bigot.

        The minority will always have their say but the majority will always have their way, beauty of democracy.

        • Sharia_Haram

          Panic for a serial loser? We did it before and will do it again and again. Wining all the way for GEJ.

          • mike

            Mr djay, when you say “we did it before and we will do it again”, whom are you referring to as we? True we voted for Johnathan because we had pity for someone who didn’t have shoes. Now he has many shoes and he is using the shoes to kick us around.
            Never again will get my vote out of pity. The man abused the opportunity given to him hence he ‘ll be shown the way out.
            Buhari/Amaechi ticket would be their (pdp) greatest nemesis.

      Buhari to Spent Christmas With Anglican Daughter and Son-in-law at Idemili South Local Government of Anambra

      Muhammed Buhari will be spending the Yultide, as his tradition is with Amina, his favourite and last daughter, AMINA who is married to Col. GODDY UDECHUKWU (Rtd.) from UKE in Idemili South Local Government of Anambra state. Amina converted to Christianity upon marriage to the then Colonel Udechukwu, she became an active and devoted Anglican

  • Wähala

    Wishful thinking…
    Fat Doyin wishes amaechi will get the nod so he can insult his ewedu-loving brothers that despite giving Buhari their block vote, see how he has paid them back. Cheap reverse psychology that’s not going to wash. Gov. Amaechi took himself out of the race for VP slot after it emerged the prerogative has been conceded to Alhj. Bob Chicago, whom everyone knows is not in the best of terms with Rotimi over the choice of John Oyegun as ACP Chairman. In fact, obese Doyin Okupe and the PDP should worry about buttering their bread and stop snooping around APC’s internal business. The candidate is Gen. Buhari, they should be preparing their candidate for a stiff fight for his political life since it’s obvious change is on the way… if I were fat like Doyin from graft money, I would be worried about Buhari’s advise that looters are free to leave the country when he becomes President, Doyin Okupe is a qualified looter for swindling several states of road construction contracts without delivering. Olosi!

    • tundemash

      The may not necesarily leave the country. They can still negotiate which prison they would prefer to spend their terms ! I would love to see HipoPatience in a prison in Rivers state and fat Doyin in Kirikiri!

      • Wähala

        Ol’ school soja like Buhari may still believe in the ol’ firing squad to settle leadership tussle. If truly he’s a Sharia Law extremists like they say, I say na leave-to-live or face early grave… hahaha chai!

        • tundemash

          chai ! The aborigines and their collaborators will finally be shipped away to Papua New Guinea ?….. you wonder how a man was given so much on a platter of religion and ethnicity and yet frittered it away .on greed and incompetence.

      If its you won’t you panic.If you are contesting with a man who formed a small party few months before election and got 12 million votes but lost and you are again contesting with the same man but this time with a mega party, your BP will surely high now.

    • Sharia_Haram

      Afraid of serial loser? You are dreaming. Buhari’s other name is LOSER. He lost to military coup and had since been losing democratically.

    It will be a miracle for Buhari to work with Amaechi successfully. Amaechi is too proud and he likes playing to the gallery. He has no respect to elders, and he claims to know all things. “my watch”.

    The attitude of the Nobel committee at these times will make Alfred Nobel sick even in his grave. One is at a loss, when the likes of Chinua Achebe were being murmured to have been deserving after his demise. Mohammed Ali was deserving but for that singular courageous reason of refusing the draft when it came.
