Wike warned me against Amaechi – Senator Abe

Senator Magnus Abe, has said that Govenor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State warned him over the current antagonism he is facing from the Minister of Transport, Chibuike Amaechi-led All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state.
Senator Abe said this while reacting to recent accusations by Senator Andrew Uchendu, where he (Abe) was taunted as having inordinate ambition, gaining more than he contributed to Amaechi’s political dynasty and not supporting the Transport Minister’s governorship bid back in 2007
Speaking yesterday in Port Harcourt over the Minister’s alleged rejection of his 2019 governorship ambition in preference for Tonye Cole under the party, Abe said it was now clear, from Uchendu’s remarks, “That the decision to stop me (Abe) was taken long ago.
“That is exactly what Governor Wike warned me against when he came to my house prior to his decision to leave the group. What is happening in Rivers State APC has nothing to do with building the party, it is all about stopping Abe.”
On the contribution to Amaechi’s political dynasty, Abe said: “There is always this attempt to play down Wike’s contribution to our success in the court.
“Wike was pivotal to what happened in the court, just as I was to how we got the nomination.
“When Amaechi was in Ghana, he was talking to me more than five times every day, at a stage I was the only person in (Peter) Odili’s Government he was talking to.
“When Amaechi came back from Ghana, immediately after he was sworn-in as governor, he appointed Wike as his Chief of Staff and appointed me as Secretary to the State Government.
“So if Sen. Uchendu feels the governor, in his wisdom, chose to appoint people who did not support his struggles to such strategic positions in his government, then too bad.”
On the rancour over his 2019 governorship ambition, the senator told Rivers people that, “I have not taken a decision on the matter, but everywhere I go, people say I will be governor of Rivers State, I respond with a loud Amen.”

Amaechi speaks on defection, Wike, abandoned Mono Rail, Greater Port Harcourt projects

Rivers State and the current Minister of Transport Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi says he has no personal problems with Governor Nyesom Wike.
He said his problem is the “maladministration, incompetence and lack of vision” on the part of the governor.
Amaechi said this in a series of tweets during interaction with Nigerians and especially those from Rivers state on Christmas Day.
Asked whether he will be going back to the PDP, the minister simply answered, “No”.
Another user asked what he was doing about a rumour that Governor Wike ensured the emergence of Uche Secondus as PDP Chairman so that he (Wike) could monitor Amaechi.
The twitter user @asktja quipped: “Sir I hear Secondus is from your place hence Wike picked him to check mate your rising popularity and keep him in office.”
But the minister said: “Lol! Can anyone stop the sun from shining? Anyway, I dey kampe.”​
Sopirinye Jaja with handle @Sopirinye, asked: “Any plans for Federal government to consider taking over Rivers state mono rail. Rivers govt already invested billions in mono rail.”
Amaechi replied saying, “It’s a state project. We can’t just come & take it over.”
Akin Bello with handle @AkinBello, noted: “That monorail project is one of the bold steps of @ChibuikeAmaechi administration, still praying the new government devotes more time tomorrow to it and others under the Greater Port-Harcourt concept.”
Amaechi answered: “That’s left for the present State government to do. There should be continuity in Govt. I completed several former governor Omehia & Odili projects when I was governor. PMB did not abandon projects, just because they were started by GEJ, e.g Abuja – Kaduna rail line.”
Asked about the fate of Greater Port Harcourt project, a new city development Amaechi started when he was governor, the Minister said, “Greater Port Harcourt! Look at how they abandoned that beautiful concept, that new city. Hear the staff there have not seen salaries for about seven months. SMH There is God!​

Fuel Scarcity: Marketers Beg NNPC For Supply, Say ‘Our Depots Are Empty’

The Depot and Petroleum Products
Marketers Association (DAPPMA) on
Tuesday expressed concern over the
inability of Nigerian National
Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to
send petrol to its members’ depots.
DAPPMA’s Executive Secretary, Mr
Olufemi Adewole, in a statement
made available to journalists in
Lagos, urged NNPC to help the
Association so as to alleviate the
suffering of Nigerians.
“Our members’ depots are presently
empty. However, if the PPMC/NNPC
can provide us with petrol, we are
ready to do 24-hour loading to
alleviate the sufferings of Nigerians
and for the fuel queues to be totally
“We, petroleum products marketers,
do empathise with all Nigerians who
are going through difficulties at this
time by spending hours on fuel
queues because of the current fuel
scarcity due to no fault of theirs.
“DAPPMA members import about 65
per cent of the nation’s total fuel
consumption, Major Oil Marketers
Association of Nigeria (MOMAN)
imports about 15 per cent and
PPMC/NNPC import the balance of
20 per cent.
“However this scenario changed
drastically due to several challenges
faced by marketers,” he said.
The DAPPMA official claimed that
their members pay PPMC/NNPC in
advance for petroleum products.
He said fully paid-up petrol orders
which have neither been
programmed nor loaded is in excess
of 500,000MT (about 800,000,000
“As at today, there is enough petrol
to meet the nation’s needs for 19
days at a daily estimated
consumption of 35,000,000 litres.
“Sadly, some people have blamed
marketers for hoarding products.
Unfortunately, this is far from the
“Hoarding is regarded as economic
sabotage and we assure all
Nigerians that our members are not
involved in such illicit act.
“While all kinds of allegations have
been made in the media, it is
important to set the records
straight, as Nigerians first, and as
responsible business men and
women who employ Nigerians.
“As it stands today, NNPC has been
the sole importer of PMS into the
country since October,’’ Adewole

Buhari: Kano Government attacks Kwankwaso over APC‎ crisis

The Government of Kano State has lambasted Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso for making unsavory remarks against President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, using his group, Kwankwasiya.
The State Government’s condemnation was contained in a press statement signed by the state Commissioner of Information, Malam Muhammad Garba and made available to newsmen in Kano.
This was in reaction to a recent press conference organized by Kwankwasiyya group, held at the Kano chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ.
According to the statement, members of the Kwankwassiyya group acted the script of Kwankwaso whose plot to destabilize the APC in Kano state had been roundly defeated.
“It is also on record that Kwankwaso and his Kwankwasiyya group, consumed by the tall dream of becoming ‘President’ has unjustifiably maligned President Buhari at every giving opportunity.
“It is on this note that Kano state government seriously frowns at statements credited to the strong member of Kwankwassiyya group, Aminu Abdulsalam who did not only maliciously accused President Buhari of fueling crisis in Kano APC, but also used derogatory words and attacked the personality and hard-earned integrity of Mr. President.
“Kano state Government strongly warns against such act of incivility by a person or group of persons against the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the party’s leadership and other respected political office holders.
“Kano state Government, therefore, demands the Kwankwassiyya group to tender unreserved apology to President Buhari and APC national secretariat, without which the APC national leadership should invoke the party’s constitution and take appropriate disciplinary measures against them for insubordination and engaging in anti-party activities.
“It is, however, very unfortunate that members of Kwankwassiyya group are now deriding the APC national leadership which gave them ample opportunities to play the god and even at many occasions recognized their favored candidate, Umar Haruna Doguwa as the APC chairman in Kano state.
“Now that a new and authentic leadership has emerged through the instruments of the party’s constitution, it is expected that the Kwankwassiyya, if truly have concern to APC, should rally round the new leadership and display totally loyalty to the party rather than blackmailing the party’s national leadership and President Muhammadu Buhari.”
