A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Chukwuemeka Eze, has alleged that the former minister of transportation Rotimi Amaechi Influenced the nomination of two fresh ministers.
Eze revealed this in a statement in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, July 5, made available to HausaToday.
He insisted that Amaechi had a hand in the nomination of Udi Odum and Umana Okon Umana as ministers.
He added that the former Rivers Governor was also responsible for the reappointment of Henry Ugboma as University of Port Harcourt’s chief medical director (CMD).
The APC stalwart insisted that Amaechi’s participation in the APC presidential primaries was one of the reasons he received an heroic reception from the party faithful in Port Harcourt.
The statement read in part: “Amaechi had returned to the state to strengthen, reassure, encourage and celebrate with his people after influencing the nomination of Udi Odum and Umana Okon Umana as minister-designates representing Rivers and Akwa Ibom states respectively as well as the reappointment of Prof Henry Ugboma as the Chief Medical Director of the University of Port Teaching Hospital (UPTH).”
