The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State Sunday said a (Muhammadu) Buhari/Amaechi (Governor Rotimi) presidential ticket is the best for the party in 2015. Rivers’ APC spokesperson, Eze Chukwuemeka, while reacting to a tweet by a presidential media aide, Doyin Okupe, describing the ticket a “fatal error”, asked the party to “give a chance to this union if they are serious about ending the embarrassment that PDP has become in the politics of our nation.”
Chukwuemeka said “With the myth surrounding Buhari combined with the bravery and sagacity of Gov. Amaechi, PDP’s days in the Aso Presidential Villa will surely become history by 2015.
Chukwuemeka accused Okupe of meddlesomeness in the affairs of the APC. He stated: “This is an issue that does not concern Dr Okupe, who is not a stakeholder in APC, but the fact remains that if Buhari/Amaechi ticket is a fatal error, then Jonathan/Sambo ticket is not only a disaster, but an ectopic pregnancy that must be evacuated to save the life of the mother, in this case our nation.”
Chukwuemeka said Okupe’s comment shows the Presidency “lives in perpetual fear of Mr. Amaechi and has been having nightmares since news filtered out that Mr. Amaechi is in strong contention to emerge as Mr. Buhari’s running mate.”
