As the ruling All Progressives Congress continue to swim in different crisis from local to national level of recent, the Minster for Transportation has reacted to the crisis by cautioning different actors in the party to act responsibly.
Amaechi made this known in a statement released by his media office said he has decided to steer clear of the in-party politics because people know him as being blunt which sometimes can be misunderstood for arrogance.
Amaehi wondered why the crisis within the APC cannot be resolved, especially when all members of the party are “adults”.
The statement reads in part:
“What is happening in APC, I don’t know; what is happening in Rivers State, I don’t know. What I’ve done is to keep away from politics. Even if I’m bothered, it’ll be internally.
“There’s nobody there (in the party) who is a child; we’re all adults. I don’t want to get involved in politics.
“Nigerians know me for being blunt and honest. Some see it as arrogance, some see it as being brash, whatever it is. What do I need to say that I have not said before? It’s internal dynamics of politics, it’s internal struggle.
“So, I have said it several times. When we fought in 2015, I said this country cannot continue the way it is going. I’m not helpless, but I’m doing what they call ‘siddon look,”
“I believe that no matter how angry you are, no matter how institutions are manipulated, a judge once said ‘I’m allowed to be wrong, that’s why you have the court of appeal, that’s why you have the supreme court.’ So if you think that what the state judiciary is doing is wrong, then you go to the Court of Appeal, you go to the Supreme Court and ensure you exhaust the due process.”
