Amaechi’s Supporters Dump APC (Read Details)

In the past week, Chibuike Amaechi, a former minister of transportation and the APC’s (All Progressives Congress) leader in Rivers State, has lost some of his most ardent supporters.
Ibim Semenitari, his former commissioner for information and communications, was the last of his adherents to resign.

Dawari George, Marvin Yobana, Nkemka Amadi, and Robinson Elechi were among those who also submitted letters of resignation to the chairmen of their respective wards. Yobana had previously represented Africa at the World Youth Assembly.

However, all of them have remained silent on the next decision of a political party to join and thanked the APC for giving them opportunities to serve at different capacities.

Semenitari, former acting managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), in her resignation letter wrote: “I write to resign my membership of APC with effect from today.

“I appreciate the friendship, camaraderie and opportunities that this platform has provided me to serve my state, region and country even as I wish the party well.”

Similarly, George, who was a strong ally of the former minister and a former commissioner for Youths under Amaechi’s administration, lauded the party for the support he got to serve it.

He was also the former chairman of the reconciliation committee of the party in Rivers State.

He, however, did not state the reason for his decision. The letter was addressed to the chairman of APC ward one in the state’s Asari Tori Local Government Area.

Meanwhile, Yobana, in his resignation letter, cited certain actions of the party which conflicted with his personal interest and political ideology as reasons for quitting the party.

These APC chieftains and Amaechi’s allies’ exit came after his recent return from Abuja, where he took second position at the party’s recent presidential primary.
