The National Working Committee after preliminary hearing, in exercise of the powers conferred by Articles 57 (3), 59 (3), 59 (5) and 29 (2.b) hereby suspends the Executive Governor of River State, Rt Hon.

This is in furtherance of the determination of the leadership of the Party to enforce discipline at all levels within the Party.

  1. When did this kangaroo Court listen to Gov Amaechi? The tragedy of Nigeria is that cllow young fellows have no brains to learn from history.Scavengers and sycophants populate the sysyem…Olisa Metuh is a metaphor,Bamanga Tukur is an old ,good but weak leader. The hawks about and around the President led by Oghiadome sholud dtop the bonfire they are setting up

  2. The National Working Committee of the All Progressive Congress at its emergency meeting, somewhere in Nigeria, resolved to welcome the governor of Rivers State, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amechi into its fold as its newest member.

    The new member committee will work out the details.

  3. This is a very good and pleasant news. Kudos to all members of National Working Committee of our great party. This man call Amaechi behaves like a despot. People have refused to see the true color of this man but continue to take a swipe at Mr. President. First of all, what is the sin of the chairman of Obiakpor LGA, Mr Timothy Nsirim? It’s just that he is the political protege of Nyesom Nwike who happens to come from that LGA. Since he is ready to fight dirty, let’s continue the fight and see who will loose. This is politics and there is no sentiment about it. During OBJ regime, Atiku thought he is too much and have alot of Governors behind him and when he left PDP and form AC with the likes of Tinubu, Audu Ogbe and others, what happened. He lost out and had to beg to come back to PDP. All is now history. Amaechi must surely regret all his action against his brother GEJ whom he is supposed to support and protect within the Governors forum which he headed before as chairman. Those telling him that he is too much will soon abandon him to his fate. Let us watch and see

  4. it is laughable that the internal democracy of our great Party has noise dived abysmally under the leadership of GEJ . unfortunately he has lost the matrix of dialogue and peaceful resolution of issues confronting the party and the umbrella is gradually going into shreds.
    Amaechi’s crime was that he contested & won the Chairmanshlp of the Nigerian Governors Forum in a free and fair election.
    The world is watching but, one assurance I have is that He that is in Amaechi is greater than he that is in the world.

  5. With so much terrorism in the country, there is so much to concentrate on other than internal party disputes without due process. When the military was there, Nigerians cried and blamed every ill on dictatorship. Now the civilians are tops in that zone, and corruption too. The image of Nigeria in the west is pitiful, and they are beginning to suggest some kind of confederation, or all states going their way as a separate nation. A situation reaches a point where one stops calling on God for help. God that has already given abundantly and has been let down enormously.

  6. When humanity jumps out of the window and runs away, it is usually replaced by animality. In this zone, there is usually no viable prayer.

  7. Why you guy (PDP) always become the main enemies of democracy, look at the way mr, president & his groups are standing, which signify failure na only Ameachi all of them the vexes Like Dis. Ameachi have prove his ability.Let the president & his group go to Hell. Ameachi have win noting More.
