The camp of the Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, in Rivers State, has apologised to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The apology was issued by Rotimi Amaechi’s Ally, Llyod Chidi, to President Buhari.
Recall, that Post-Nigeria reported earlier, that Amaechi’s Ally, Llyod Chidi, had accused Buhari of turning against the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State.
In a swift reaction, Senator Magnus Abe, representing Rivers South-East, had called on Amaechi and his men to leave Buhari out of what is happening to the party in the State.
However, in a statement which he issued in Port Harcourt, on Friday night, Llyod called on Abe to leave Amaechi out of his (Llyod) comments, adding that, he made the statement about Buhari out of anger.
He said: “As a Stakeholder in the politics of Rivers State, I feel sad that a collaboration of Senator Magnus Abe and Governor Wike and their accomplices in the Rivers State Judiciary, denied us so much in the power structure of Rivers State.
“Whereas, it is an incontrovertible fact that Magnus Abe was collecting huge sums of money, and a land cruiser jeep, including payment of legal fees, from Governor Wike, to pull the rug off the feet of the APC. It is even more annoying that Magnus Abe did everything under the sun to stop President Buhari from being re-elected.
“It is on record that when we were working round the clock to ensure we re-elected President Buhari, Magnus Abe addressed a team of 23 Coordinators across the 23 LGAs in his camp, to go to their LGAs and instruct their supporters to vote for Atiku, instead President Buhari, and they did.
“Every true Nigerian will agree with me that President Buhari’s emergence and subsequent re-election, is the best thing that has ever happened to Nigeria. I am a full supporter of President Buhari, and I am doing that without regrets.
“My statement may have sounded harsh, I regret it, and take responsibility for that. I am sorry.
“I spoke in anger, because of the collusion of INEC and Wike, in Rivers State Governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections.”
