CRISIS HITS AMAECHI’S RIVERS APC KITCHEN CABINET 2019 TEAM
***HOW DUMO LULU-BRIGGS STORMED OUT FROM LAGOS MEETING
If you think that all is well with Rivers state erstwhile Governor and now Minister for Transportation Rt. Honourable Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi take a look at his 2019 General election team in All Progressive Congress Rivers State Chapter. There are voices of dissent apart from those who want to run for electoral positions the authoritative tendencies of Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi in resorting to unilateral method of consensus candidates instead of an open free and fair Primary election for Governorship, House of representatives, Rivers state House of assembly and Governorship elections has now set his team into disarray. First, was a February, 2018 meeting he organized outside Rivers state precisely the meeting was held at Lagos where majority of APC Rivers state stalwarts are hibernating due to security challenge at their home-front occasioned by unexplained killings by unknown gun-men in Rivers state. At that innermost kitchen cabinet discussion, it was gathered that Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi opened u for the first time about who and who should be positioned where for electoral positions.
According to Towncrier.ng sources, Dr. Adol Dakuku Peterside the Director General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency-NIMASA who he had asked to resign his 5-years appointment and contest for Rivers State Governorship race in 2019. With this statement many of his close political party followers were taken aback with shock and disbelief knowing that APC is doomed in 2019 in Rivers state. Again, Dumo Lulu-Briggs a frontline Governorship aspirant boldly walked out from the meeting in protest of the statement allegedly made the leader of all Progressive Congress-APC in Rivers state and South-South region Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi. Barrister Dumo Lulu-Briggs it was gathered funded Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi’s 2017 Birthday ceremony organized on June 17th, 2017 at Port Harcourt when the 52nd birthday bash was an avenue Barrister Dumo Lulu-Briggs used to test his closeness with Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi. Inside Port Harcourt Dumo Lulu-Briggs’ political Bill-boards are located at strategic corners with various messages heralding several festivities and strong messages for Niger Delta youths to shun cultism and embrace peace and hard work.
In that said meeting held at Lagos, the Dr. Sekonte Davies who was in the Federal House of Representatives for 8-years representing Degema-Bonny Federal Constituency but have been nursing Governorship ambition had his breathe taken away for a while as Amaechi was addressing his innermost political group at Lagos. First Dr. Sekonte Davieshas been spending money on a political pressure group known as I-SEE-YOU GROUP headed by one Mr. Chizzy Nyeomasilam a political jobber and mobiliser with link to Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi hoping to be crowned with the 2019 Rivers state APC governorship ticket. Sekonte Davies is not a happy man today and can never forgive Amaechi for his choice of Dr. Adol Dakuku Peterside as APC governorship candidate in 2019 Governorship election.
In that same meeting Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi declared the Chairman of FREE RIVERS Initiatives–Engineer Sampson Ngirigbara as Rivers South East Senatorial candidate replacing him with the incumbent distinguished Senator Magnus Ngei Abe who he had fallen out of favour with since the struggle for the APC Rivers state governorship race began in 2017. Those who were at the Lagos meeting relayed that Barrister Dumo-Lulu Briggs was told to wait for a Rivers State West Senatorial Ticket as compensation for his contributions to rebuilding APC even though he defected not more than a year ago to APC.
For Ikwerre/Emohua Federal House of Representatives ticket on that day of the Lagos Amaechi’s commissioner for Land and Survey Barrister Ezekiel Ezemonye Amadi from Omerelu in Ikwerre Local Government Area few kilometers away from Amaechi’s home town of Ubima was handed over the ticket currently being occupied by an Elele bornElder Chidi Frank Wihioka a stalwart of All Progressive Congress–APC who helped Amaechi in his 2007 Supreme Court Landmark Governorship Election Trial.
When the issue of Rivers East senatorial ticket was mentioned Amaechi was said to have remained motionless and speechless as everyone’s guess had been that he had reserved it for himself against popular Chief Allwell Onyesoh who many had tipped in All Progressive Congress -APC as the probable candidate except that he Chief Allwell Onyesoh a native of Umuanyagu in electoral Etche ward 5 of Etche Local Government Area is heading “THE MEETING” a group of APC Rivers state Chapter members loyal to Senator Magnus Ngei Abe’s Governorship ambition come 2019.

But the sitting governor Nyesom Wike is waiting for a show-down with Amaechi should he indicate interest in running for Rivers East senatorial seat Primary election for APC against Chief Allwell Onyesoh as he Governor Wike is ready to do the devil’s alternative by doing everything to have Chief Allwell Onyesoh disgrace Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and emerge victorious as APC candidate for the 2019 General elections. This is so as Amaechi is unarguably unpopular and political liability to Rivers State Chapter of APC as he might not even win election in his own Voting Unit in front of his father’s house at Ubima. So, the incumbent senator Andrew Uchendu from Emohua Local Government Area may be re-elected by consensus plans of Amaechi should he change his decision to run as Director-General of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Re-election Campaign Organization.
