No rift between Oshiomhole, Amaechi – APC

By Valentine Amanze

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied any rift between the party Chairman, Adam Oshiomhole, and the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, over Rivers State governorship election.
The party, through its National Publicity Secretary
Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, said that it was regrettable that the APC national chairman's statement was being twisted to suit a jaundiced narrative.
While saying that the narrative was at best, mischievous, pedestrian and should be disregarded, the party explained that its chairman's statement was unambiguous as to the effect that the APC's National Working Committee (NWC) did not have any formal alliance with AAC.
Besides, the ruling party also disclosed that
both Oshiomhole and Ameachi were above the petty insinuations being orchestrated by the media.
“Like many leaders of the party, APC National Chairman, Comrade Oshiomhole and the Minister of Transport, Hon. Amaechi enjoy cordial relationship and do share mutual respect; therefore, deliberate misinterpretation of issues and statements from the party or between the two of them would continue to fail,” the party stated.
It would be recalled that Rivers State APC is backing the governorship candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Awara Biokpomabo, in the 2019 governorship election.
