The last has not been heard about the political war between Rotimi Amaechi and Senator Magnus Abe.
From all indications, the senator is ready to battle Amaechi… “I am sure you are all aware of the current decision of the NWC of our party which accepted the report that returned Tonye Cole elected, based on the indirect primary conducted in the state.”
“The battle has just begun. The party has set up an appeal. We will take advantage of the appeal panel and forward our case. “The result of the indirect primary remains unacceptable and will remain unacceptable. The indirect primary was a charade set up by a few individuals to bring in their candidate. We will not accept that result.”
“We are now faced with a fact that a man who just joined the party can claim to be a candidate of the party. This is against the wish of everybody who has worked for the party. “I don’t have anything against Tonye Cole because he is my friend. But we are politicians and we are fighting for justice. Without truth there can be no justice and without justice there can be no peace.”
“I will not accept the result of the indirect primaries conducted in the state because he and other leaders of the party did not participate in the process. This is the situation we have talked and warned about, when the Minister of Transportation called a meeting of the party and started the event that has resulted to this.”
