PRESS RELEASE! PRESS RELEASE!! ON SIEGE ON GOVERNOR ROTIMI AMAECHI
NOTHING BAD MUST HAPPEN TO GOVERNOR ROTIMI AMAECHI AND THE LEADERS OF APC
The Executive Council and members of APC UK Chapter are very concerned about the threat to the life of the APC Governor of Rivers State and Director General of APC PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN ORGANISATION, Governor Rotimi Amaechi who had earlier complained that the President Goodluck Johnathan led PDP government had completed plans to assassinate him and some leaders of APC.
We are very worried that the Federal government on the orders of President Jonathan has unleashed combined units of the Nigerian army and police to barricade and lay siege to Governor Rotimi Amaechi’s house , as the APC Presidential and other candidates lead in early polls results in the General elections 2015. This is of great concern to us. We invite you to watch Governor Rotimi Amaechi, complain to a Police Officer in front of the Governor's House in Port Harcourt in front of the gentlemen of the Press, bloggers and social media users - https://fbstatic-a.akamaihd.net/rsrc.php/v2/y4/r/-PAXP-deijE.gif.
We are all witnesses to how orderly the Nigerian people are speaking and making it clear that change has come to Nigeria through their patient and orderly voting at polling stations all over the Country in spite of intimidations and underhand dealings of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, the police as well as the army and other security forces. We call of the PDP and President Jonathan to rein-in their forces and thugs in order to save precious Nigerian lives and property. The people are resolute to have genuine change come to Nigeria and no power can stop them now.
We are therefore asking the world to take note of the dastardly plans by President Jonathan and PDP to assassinate the leaders of APC. Indeed the APC candidate for the House of Assembly for the Dukku constituency of Gombe in Gombe State along with eight members of APC was assassinated this morning Saturday, 28 March 2015. May their gallant souls rest in peace.
We call on the police and security agencies of the Federal government of Nigeria to make sure that the perpetrators of this evil act are brought to book promptly. As for Governor Rotimi Amaechi and other leaders of APC throughout Nigeria, we call on President Jonathan and PDP to respect the peace accord signed by the APC Presidential candidate General Muhammadu Buhari and President Goodluck Johnathan and make sure that nothing happens to them: not even a hair on them should be harmed. Let peace reign and let our people live to declare the works of God Almighty and make Nigeria great again.
This is a Save-Our-Souls message to intimate the world that democracy is under threat yet again in Nigeria as the government of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP employs subterfuge and violence against the peoples of Nigeria through the manipulation and disruption of the electoral process and its umpire, Independent Electoral Commission, INEC and the incitement of ethnic militias to commit mayhem and ethnic cleansing against Nigerians. This is in order to create a situation unsuitable for elections or ripe for the outright stealing of the elections by the government and its security agencies as well as the PDP thugs. Our leaders are not safe unless President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP can give us the guarantee that they are safe and would abide by the letter and spirit of the peace accord he signed onto with our Presidential candidate General Muhammadu Buhari recently.
The world cannot afford to allow Nigeria to fail as a state. The regional and global impact, let alone, the scale of potential human suffering of allowing Nigeria to fail or degenerate into a theatre of war are too heinous to face. THIS IS WHY WE ARE NOW CALLING ON THE WHOLE WORLD TO HELP NIGERIA AVERT THIS SITUATION.
Watch the siege on Governor Rotimi Amaechi’s house in Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers State of Nigeria: https://fbstatic-a.akamaihd.net/rsrc.php/v2/y4/r/-PAXP-deijE.gif
