Another rage and disarray has been witnessed in the Rivers State All Progressive Congress (APC) over a planned Thanksgiving for the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi and the persons that made the Committee List
Some section of the party stalwarts who are believed to have always been on the list of every events for the party dominated the List of Thanksgiving and Reception Committees released few days ago to the public.
Members of the Rivers State APC who have gone through various degrees of challenging times, part of which were the APC in Rivers State being denied the opportunity to field not even a single candidate in the 2019 general election.
Innocent party faithfuls, yet to recover from the series of court bruises and so on, woke up on Wednesday to see flyers of Thanksgiving for its Leader and later List of Organisers and Committee for the event in the name of the party.
The list (#TheList), still generating wide condemnation by Angry APC supporters, threw the party into another disarray as True Blue Reporters and social media users witnessed various degrees of Posts and Comments by APC faithfuls condemning the Thanksgiving, the organisers and those that made up the list of committees.
While some described it as ‘Okwe’, others stated that it’s a means of further subduing others by few group of persons who do not care about the pains and agony helpless APC Supporters are currently facing in Rivers State. Rather, prefer to make personal financial gains and further milk the Leader, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi.
Angry Rivers APC Youths have threatened to mobilize same day against the event which they say will neither win the APC any election in the state nor put food in the table of helpless and highly suffering APC Youths in Rivers State. They demanded for outright disbandment of the list and reorganisation of the APC in Rivers State not Thanksgiving Organised by few individuals.
Recall that the planned Rivers APC Congress also suffered set back as some section of the anti-Amaechi group took the party to court, stopping the planned congress, leaving the APC in Rivers State without structure and executive at all level.
One may think the party leaders in the state would have rallied round with stiffer efforts to reorganize the APC in Rivers State other than focusing more on another round of celebrations, putting innocent supporters into a more hopeless situation followed by regrets, accusations and counter-accusations at the end
