APC alleges plot by Presidency to produce damaging documentary on Amaechi

Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.

The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has alleged a plot by the Presidency to produce a damaging documentary on the state governor, Chibuike Amaechi.

It said the plot, which was leaked to it by a patriotic Nigerian working in the Presidency, was intended to present Mr. Amaechi as a power-hungry and corrupt politician.

The party stated this in a statement on Thursday by its chairman, Davies Ikanya, in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

The APC said the plot was in continuation of the ongoing campaign of calumny against its leading lights by the Peoples Democratic Party.

It said, “Having sponsored the production and airing of similar discredited documentaries on APC Presidential Candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.), and the party’s National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the PDP-led Presidency and President Goodluck Jonathan’s strategists believe that Governor Amaechi is the next APC backbone to be targeted in this diabolical and desperate but futile attempt to stop APC’s march to victory in the March 28 presidential election.”

The APC said Mr. Amaechi has no skeleton in his cupboard and has nothing to be afraid of, having served the people of the state to the best of his ability in the past eight years.

It warned those behind “this devilish and invidious” plot to desist from executing it.

It stated further, “We also wish to issue advance warning to media houses that may be tempted by the lure of lucre to promote or broadcast any satanic documentary on Governor Amaechi to perish the thought or prepare to meet us in court.

The party also advised Mr. Jonathan “and his sinking party to stop wasting public funds sponsoring ill-conceived documentaries designed to tarnish the reputation of APC leaders, as this cannot save the party during the forthcoming polls.”

The APC asked the president to realize that the game is up as it expected him to work towards honourably leaving power as a statesman and avoid destroying the institutions and people who have assisted him in his political journey.

It said Mr. Jonathan has run our economy aground and spread corruption as a way of life.

The party said Nigerians were “tired of his maladministration, lack of vision and no amount of bribery or damage to any of our leaders will save him from the deafest that awaits him come 28th March, 2015”.

  • King Carlos

    Tell me, is there anything in this world that PDP wants to do that APC will not know about?

    • John Matthew


      • Then why is Gej jittery?

        • Born To rule

          APC are the ones jittery, punk!

  • FortB

    Tell that to the birds. Pre-empt your trial for corruption after immunity expires will not save you. Abi APC is not for anti corruption again? If you are clean, harbour no fear. The courts will set you free, abi?

    • Just like Jonathan is corrupt and only God knows what buhari will do to him after may 29.

    • Amir

      You claim to be in the military yet you are shamelessly online as PDP e-rat. You are next in line to cry to Obanikoro for promotion. Cowards.

  • Jerry Marok

    King Carlos true talk. The GEJ man is on his own. That is why his brainless wife is the main battle tank now in the assault against the APC presidential candidate. That is why she has been firing blank ammo that has no effect of recent. Virtually all their plans get revealed before they are fully conceived. Don’t know why they are still deceiving themselves.

  • jossy

    why is pdp misusing nigeria money for rubbish?

    • Pdp is a useless party

      • Born To rule

        Just as you are useless to your Northern society!

  • John Matthew


    • Expose whatever. Why at the eleventh hour? If Jonathan is so sure that these guys are corrupt, why don’t efcc go after them and prosecute them? If bola tinibu has this and that, we want to know the ones owned by Jonathan, mimiko, okupe, Amadu ali, Buruji, femi fani kayode, Aliyu gusau, dasuki, fayose, tompolo, asari dokubo, patient Jonathan, wike and co. So that we can judge. How many Nigerians watch AIT&NTA because of no light? This campaign of columny and hatred will not save Jonathan in the forthcoming election. Pdp are shouting the more like opposition. Pdp is useless.

  • Es3

    If the documentary is the truth about Amaechi, PDP should go ahead full speed!!!

    What I will not support would not support is telling lies around the way APC has been doing!

    It is high time Nigerians know the truth about their supposed leaders?!

    • Onike24

      So APC are liars, but PDP are scrupulously honest ?

      • Es3

        PDP are not honest either, but we have seen APC take lying to a new dizzying height that it has since become their official party ideology!!!

        • Onike24

          So both APC and PDP are liars? So why the moral outrage? a lie is a lie. No such thing as big lie and small lie! Lies are lies period. But if you asked me for my personal opinion, PDP is morally bankrupt without one redeeming feature.

          • Es3

            You either still missed it altogether or have decided not to reason from the angle of lying to mislead Nigerians and steal from them what they would not have ordinarily given, if they knew the truth???!

            I hope you know that lying to gain undue advantage is not just a sin but a crime as well???

            APC lies uncontrollably to Nigerians and talking of being morally bankkrupt, that degree of romance with lies can only come from one that is not just morally bankrupt, but fully decayed morals!!! Placed a scale, APC lying will make PDP a saint overnight!!!

          • Onike24

            What the dickens is your point?????

          • Es3

            Well, if you still missed it again, then it would better that we leave it at that?!

  • Uzoma

    Why can’t APC let the viewing public be the judge in this documentary matter. If it is ill-conceived and simply designed to tarnish the image of good man, they will reward the APC.

  • Onike24

    If the PDP has evidence that Ameachi is/ was corrupt, will a documentary prosecute him? What is the point of having anti graft agencies which are run at tax payers expense, but seem unable to bring criminals to Justice? Clearly, every thing is about politics to this administration….

  • Born To rule

    You dont want the masses to see the damaging documentary being allegedly sponsored by PDP, yet all your statements in this story are so damaging especially against the President. This is the norm and mentality of these cursed APC people. They don’t want to be criticized or insulted yet they keep criticizing and insulting the President and PDP on daily basis. Is Amaechi scared or afraid of what is going to be documented about him? Why the jittery by APC and its members. You think you can beat PDP to it when it comes to this type of game? Let the documentary be aired and let the masses be the judge, thank God its only few days to the election and what the masses hear and learn at this crucial period will determine how and who they will cast their votes for. Egun n la ni keyin igbale (its the biggest masquerade that ends and wins the show)
