The raging war of words between two Rivers state top politicians Rt. Honourable Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi the former Governor of Rivers state now Minister of Transportation and the former Member of Federal House of Representatives Elder Chidi Frank Wihioka has taken a different turn. The several allegations coming from Elder Chidi Wihioka against the leader of All Progressives Congress Rivers state, Honourable Chibuike Amaechi for using his Lawyer in 2018 leading to 2019 electioneering campaign first that Amaechi had challenged former Senator Representing Rivers South East Senatorial district in the 8th National Assembly Barrister Magnus Ngei Abe’s ambition cum aspiration to be elected Governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC in Rivers state in 2019. Secondly, the use of his lawyer and the court to refrain APC Rivers state chapter from presenting a Governorship candidate. Thirdly Elder Chidi Wihioka claimed that the Magnus Ngei Abe led All Progressives Congress APC is the authentic state chapter of APC while asking Amaechi to repent from his alleged antics and return to the back seat that his sins had been forgiven.
When our reporter, Emeka Amaefula reached to the Minister of Transportation and leader of APC in Rivers state with the above allegations, he quickly replied, “He lied all through”. This reporter went further to raise more probing questions which the serving Minister has not responded to.
However Elder Chidi Wihioka when contacted for further clearance admitted that all the allegations that he raised are true and that he is willing to be challenged in any court of competent jurisdiction by the Minister of Transportation as he will defend himself with proof supporting all the facts within his disposal.
