The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, says its attention has been drawn to a news report in a section of the media over threat by the former State governor, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi to have sued the Party, its State Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah and two others to court over allegations of corruption against him.
Reacting to the news report, the State PDP described the litigation threat as diversionary in the light of shocking revelations, testimonies and discoveries of acts of lawlessness, fraudulent and injudicious spending of State resources by him while in office being witnessed before the Commission of Inquiry into the Sale of Valued Assets of the State by his administration for which he was invited but he refused to appear to defend himself.
While not wishing to join issues with Amaechi until he makes real his boost by serving the processes of the said suit on the PDP and those he claimed he sued, the party in a Press Statement signed by Jerry Needam, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the State Chairman of the PDP, Bro Felix Obuah, said the party would not be deterred by threats of litigation neither will it be intimidated by anybody, let alone Mr Amaechi that should be apologizing to the Rivers people for running the State aground for eight years.
The State party chairman, Bro Obuah however added that the intended lawsuit by Amaechi if true, will offer the party the opportunity to expose to the whole world the atrocities committed by the former Governor, for them to adjudge whether Amaechi is corrupt or a saint as he is hoodwinking those who do not know him very well to believe.
