Amaechi, Abe Fight, Irreconcilable – PDP Chairman
As the disagreement between the former Rivers State Governor and Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and the Senator representing Rivers South East Senatorial District, Magnus Abe deepens by the day,
the Chairman of the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro. Felix Obuah has restated his resolve to settle the two parties as he feared that the rift was taking an irreconcilable dimension.
Bro. Obuah in a statement in Port Harcourt, which was made available to DAYLIGHT.NG said even though he shared political differences with the warring APC chieftains, he has not relented in seeking ways of brokering peace between the duo whom he said are dear to him as subjects.
The PDP Chairman disclosed that one of such efforts geared toward brokering the peace has resulted in convening of a meeting with supporters of Amaechi and Abe which he said would hold at his Palace in Port Harcourt Saturday, August 19, 2017.
Bro. Obuah said he extracted the agreement to convene the meeting when representatives of the two political leaders (Abe and Amaechi) met with him in his Palace over the week, and expressed confidence that the outcome of his meeting with the APC supporters would be fruitful.
It will be recalled that the State PDP Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah had in the wake of the quarrel between Senator Abe and former Governor Amaechi elected to make peace between the duo despite the political differences between his party (PDP) and the APC.
Bro. Obuah said he volunteered to reconcile them (Amaechi and Abe) whose pride and strong-headedness are tearing the APC apart in Rivers State.
The State PDP boss regretted that his two subjects have started exhibiting same ego that pitched them against other progressive politicians in the State, stressing that as aging leaders in the State, they should learn to conduct themselves in any group they find themselves, in a manner that would not threaten the peace and security of Rivers State.
“It is becoming too embarrassing for the two uncompromising APC leaders to be insulting themselves both on air and in print and by extension, the Rivers people”, Bro. Obuah said, adding that it also surprised him that with their level of exposure and social status, both Chibuike Amaechi and Magnus Abe still remain and wish to continue to remain local champions and the only leading lights in their party.
