Rivers ACN denounces its national leadership over calls for Jonathan’s impeachment

FURTHER cracks are emerging in the opposition Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), as its Rivers State chapter has distanced itself from calls by its national secretariat that President Goodluck Jonathan be impeached over the political crisis rocking the state.

Absolving the President Jonathan of any blame in the crisis, the chapter instead blamed Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, who it accused of orchestrating the crisis. In a statement by its secretary, Mr. Amonibia Akoko, which was made available to newsmen, the chapter cautioned its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, against making uninformed statements that would only worsen the situation.

The statement read: “We the ACN in Rivers State know the true picture of events that are unfolding in the state. And we know that in this incident, the main culprit is Governor Amaechi, who during the last electioneering and election, sealed off the campaign secretariat of Dr. Abiye Precious Sekibo, used the Nigerian security agencies to arrest and intimidate our members.
