Why We Supported Amaechi To Disgrace President Jonathan ––APC Opens Up

Some PDP governors are not happy with President Goodluck Jonathan but are afraid to oppose him openly to avoid victimization. It is in this light that the All Progressives Congress, APC, supported Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State as Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum to disgrace President Goodluck Jonathan and his anointed candidate in the election.
“We saw that when the chips were down, some of the governors who were purportedly against Amaechi voted him in the secret ballot. Just wait, there are many more surprises awaiting Jonathan and the PDP [in 2015].”
Spokesmen for the APC told Punch that the merger of major opposition parties was to oppose the interests of the PDP and the President in the NGF election, the way opposition did during the election of the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
The National Publicity Secretary of Congress for Progressive Change, Mr. Rotimi Fashakin, said Jonathan is trying to make himself an authoritarian.

Fasakin added: “The progressive parties will always do anything that will stop Jonathan from assuming an imperial status. We will continue to oppose Jonathan’s authoritarian tendencies. We supported Amaechi because Jonathan’s intervention in the governors’ forum election was self-serving. As a progressive opposition party, our duty is to oppose that. So, we have no apologises for that.”

Also, the National Publicity Secretary of the Action Congress of Nigeria, Mr. Lai Mohammed, said “All ACN governors are in support of Amaechi but the decision was taken at the APC governors’ forum. It was not discussed at the party. 
"You know the APC has its forum and they discuss their affairs as it concerns the merger. Remember they were all in Maiduguri and Yobe and they hold meetings regularly. So, they decided to vote for Amaechi at the NGF election [and they gave him victory].”
