AMILOADED MEDIA HUB NEWS UPDATE
The Executive Chairman of Emohua Local Government Area, Rivers State, Dr. Chidi Lloyd has taken a swipe at former Senator Lee Meeba, for his recent outbursts against the state Governor, Nyesom Wike.
According to DAILY POST, Lee Meeba, who is a staunch supporter of the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, had accused Wike of dictatorship.
He claimed that Wike vowed to stop them from campaigning for Atiku in the state without his express permission, alleging that the governor frustrated his bid to contest the governorship primary of the party.
Meeba who was recently kicked out of the Governing Council of the Elechi Amadi Polytechnic as its Chairman by the Governor said Wike did not allow him to employ anybody in the Institution and refused to fund the Polytechnic because of him.
He said the governor was also furious that he and some PDP leaders met with Atiku recently and promised him that Rivers would vote for a PDP candidate in 2023.
But Lloyd flayed Lee Meeba describing him as a coward without an electoral value.
He said it was cowardice elevated to the national level for Meeba, a two-time senator to claim that Wike ordered him not to run for the governorship election.
Lloyd said Meeba displayed his cowardice again by remaining as a council chair of a Polytechnic he claimed Wike refused to fund for over seven years without resigning his position.
He said: “I can only describe Lee Meeba as a coward. It is very unfortunate that he has taken his cowardice to the national level. For Lee, a two-time Senator to come out on national tv to say Wike ordered him not to run an election and that was why he didn’t win is a sign of his cowardice.
“He also said he sat as a chairman of the Governing Council of the Elechi Amadi Polytechnic but that the governor refused him from employing anybody and didn’t fund the school. But he remained there without resigning. These are not human beings”.
Lloyd insisted that the plot by Atiku and those loyal to him to create a crisis in Rivers PDP was an exercise in futility because the party’s leaders were solidly behind Governor Wike.
He said: “There is no crisis in Rivers PDP. Governor Wike is in charge. We are satisfied with Governor Wike. That was why some of us who went to APC came back to join forces with him. Can’t you see what is happening that there is no other political party in Rivers? We are solidly behind Wike.
“Lee opened his mouth and said that Wike said he should not buy form. Forms are sold at the national secretariat. Former Vice-President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar should not allow these characters to mess up this chance that he has. These people only profit from crises. We know Ledogo Meeba. He has no pedigree to cast aspersion on Wike”.
