Amaechi: Abe Is A Desperado, Betrayer, Made Him All He Is



All Progressives Congress, APC leader and minister of transportation, Rotimi Amechi has in a rare disclosure described his estranged political associate, Senator Magnus Abe as a desperado who would betray anyone to achieve his political aspiration.

Speaking in an interview in Port-Harcourt, Amaechi said that Abe achieved most of what he did through his, Amaechi’s goodwill.

He said:
“To address Magnus Abe, as a betrayer, this was somebody that followed me all the days in his life. I made Minority Leader of the House. From there I made him Commissioner for Information, got him to SSG, got him to Senate. Tell me, who is the betrayer? I said 80% of Rivers politicians who have held positions in recent times, passed through me. Magnus is among them. 

Hard words from Amaechi

“Magnus makes me laugh on his desperation. I was in a meeting with Magnus and Wike when they asked me if Dr. Odili stops us from being governor, what will happen? I said I give up. Wike said no, we will die, we have the support. I said no, that would be betrayal of goodwill. If you come forward and say Amaechi you won’t run, I won’t run, but Magnus is desperate.

“Magnus fell ill when we chose Dakuku Peterside. Ask him if he didn’t. When I wasn’t chosen, I never fell ill. I went to Dr. Odili to say I want to leave the country. He said I should leave and I left very hale and hearty. I came back a strong man, but Magnus fell ill the day we said, you are not the candidate, but Peterside.

“If Magnus says he’s not a betrayer, take the case of NDDC. He came to me, sobbing that Ogoni people have not had any position in NDDC. I said Magnus, Okay, we give you the nomination from Rivers. As soon as he got it, he grew convoy, declaring he wants to run for Governor. So, who is a betrayer. I want to sleep knowing I am an honest man. If Magnus is not ashamed of himself, let me be ashamed on his behalf. My son will worry if they hear their father is slippery.”
