Rivers: Groups Chide Local Council Chair Over Comments On Transport Minister


A group under the aegis of ‘Amaechi Vanguard’, Rivers state chapter has berated the Chairmen of Ikwerre Local Government Area Samuel Nwanosike over what they described as unguarded comments on the Minister of Transport Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi.

The Ikwerre Council Chairman (Nwanosike Samuel) had criticized the former Rivers Governor and Minister of Transport Chibuike Amaechi for saying that the APC in Rivers would zone it’s governorship to the riverine area of the state.

But, Innocent Amadi who is the cordinator of ‘Amaechi Vanguard’, a pro- APC group in Rivers State , had in a swift reaction described Samuel Nwanosike as ” an ungrateful political thug and attention seeker. He was a revenue boy to Simon Asobi Contro, Welendu Amadi and Bestman Amadi , these were former Council Chairmen in Kelga and are all Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi loyalists , they brought Samuel Nwanosike out from darkness”,he said.

Mr. Amadi also recalled that the first car Samuel Nwanosike used in his life was gifted to him by Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi. He also said that, were it not for Amaechi , Samuel Nwanosike could not have graduated from the University as he (Amaechi) saw him through his studies, adding, ” If not for the intervention of Amaechi, Samuel Nwanosike would have rot in jail by now. It was the same Amaechi who rescued him when he was arrested with cult related matters during his school days, but today, the same Nwanosike opens his stinking mouth to speak against a man who gave him a new lease of life. Nwanosike should learn from past Council Chairmen and avoid excess intake of alcoholic substance before speaking in public”,Amadi said.

Similarly, a group also known as the ‘ Rivers Elites’ has sent a stern warning to the Chairman of Ikwerre Local Government Area Samuel Nwanosike to henceforth stop the unawarranted comments against the Minister of Transportation Chibuike Amaechi.

Spokesman of the group, Dandison Chinule in a release made available to the press warned the Council Chair to stop disrespecting Amaechi , admonishing him to always respect leaders with integrity and stop acting like a riffraff.

While frowning at the recent comment by the Ikwerre council boss against the former Rivers Governor Amaechi, Comrade Dandison said, “Nwanosike lacks respect for elders and he talks like a parrot. He is a village champion infected with cancer of the mouth. He lacks respect and decorum, always exhibiting thugry.

” Amaechi is one Governor Rivers state has produced with lots of monumental acheivements, so when talking, Nwanosike should be mindful of what he says against Amaechi. Amaechi commands both local and national respects, Rivers state is proud to have him as a son. Amaechi was addressing his supporters when he said they(APC) would zone governorship to the riverine, he wasn’t addressing PDP faithfuls, he only told his massive supporters the direction they would go when it is time for guber election”, he said.

Mr Dandison also called on the elders of Ikwerre ethnic nationality and the Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike to call Hon. Nwanosike to order as any further comment against the former Rivers Governor by Nwanosike would not be tolerated by his group.
