Rivers rerun: "Don’t kill anybody but don’t be killed"- Rotimi Amaechi charges APC members

Ahead of Saturday December 10th legislative rerun election, Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, today called on members of the party to be vigilante during the election and that they should not kill and also not get killed. Speaking at the final campaign of the party in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, Amaechi said

"This is what we call the election of our lives. Before I used to tell you, ‘Please don’t fight’. Is that not what I used to tell you? But I think we will bend it a bit… I don’t want my church to stop me from taking holy communion. So, what I will tell you is don’t kill anybody, but do not be killed. Now let me explain why I said that. My friend in the army said if you hear the sound of a gun, it’s not meant for you. The implication therefore is that if you allow them shoot you, you will die. So, don’t allow them. It is not they alone who that have the right to life; you also have a right to life. I don’t want to hear ‘They shot me and took the result sheet’. If anybody takes the result sheet, take it back from him. You know I have never spoken like this before”. In the same vein, Chairman of the party, John Odigie-Oyegun, called on the party members to slap whoever slaps them during the election "I am glad with what I am hearing here today, very glad. If they push you, push them back. If they slap you, slap them back. We cannot allow them. The APC came on a rescue mission. Unfortunately they are fighting back, the same way they have always done. Are you going to allow them? It is within your powers to return the members of the house of assembly. Return the members of house of representatives and senators because we need them. When you do that, it will be the beginning of the end"he said
