By News Investigators – Federal lawmakers of All Progressive Congress (APC) on Monday allegedly accused the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Ameachi of working to jeopardize re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The lawmaker who briefed newsmen in Abuja called on Mr. President not to surrender the nation to “men without conscience,” adding that APC must distance itself from the show of shame that is currently going on in Rivers state.

“I respectfully call on our president not to surrender our nation to men without conscience, this party must distance itself from the show of shame that is currently going on in Rivers state,” he said.

Speaking on behalf of caucus, Senator Magus explained that the Minister of Transportation ignored the resolution of the South South peace Congresses in the state.

Abe said, “the south-south caucus of the party had met at the home of the minister of transportation in Abuja and directed that certain steps be taken by the leaders in the states to build confidence in the process before the congresses should begin.

“First it was agreed that an all-inclusive meeting be called between Thursday and Friday preceding the ward congresses, The meeting was to include all tendencies in the party and the modalities for congresses be discussed and agreed upon, it was also directed that the congress committee from Abuja should equally meet with all stakeholders on arrival and be briefed on the arrangements and agreements already reached in the state.

“None of this was done in Rivers state rather a faction of the party lead the Minister proceeded with the exercise in total disdain of the rights and privileges of other members. Party members who paid money to the party were blatantly disenfranchised. All protest and appeals fell on deaf ears. After the purported failed exercise.

“Another south-south caucus meeting was called this time at the home of state for minister of petroleum and it was agreed that the rules were not followed in Rivers State and the exercise in Rivers State was not acceptable.

“However, in other states were such conclusions were reached the caucus gave clear directives on what should be done to remedy the situation before the local Government congress. In the case of Rivers state however it was decided that because it is the home state of the president’s DG of campaign the President should be briefed before any further action can be taken.”

Abe who denied working  for the governor the state said,” Let others who belong to the same socio cultural and tribal association with the Governor be bold enough to open up to the world the position of their elders, and the various interventions that form foundations for their actions in the APC in Rivers state. In politics sometimes the more you look the less you see.”
