The governorship candidate of the African Action Congress in Rivers State, Biokpomabo Awara, has refuted claims by his former running mate, Akpo Yeeh, that the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, compelled them to sign letters of resignation.

Awara stated this in Port Harcourt on Tuesday. He said  that Yeeh’s allegations against the minister were fabricated. He noted that the Support his party  got from Amaechie and the All Progressive Congress was unconditional.

Awara, also said he was offered 3bn by Rivers State Government to drop his ambition of which he vehemently declined. 

He said: “I made several attempts to reach my deputy without success; then I started developing some strange feelings pointing to a possible sellout by him.

“I want to state that all the accusations made by my running mate against Mr Rotimi Amaechi are blatant lies poorly crafted by his paymaster, Governor Wike; and you could see how tough it was for him to read the script handed to him.

“I was never asked to and did not sign any letter of resignation. I am aware that my deputy also was not asked to or signed any letter of resignation. The support the AAC got from the minister and the APC was unconditional,” he said.
