Sources revealed that at a meeting Amaechi held with APC leaders from the four local government areas in Ikwerre area of the state last Saturday, he vowed to use everything at his disposal to stop Senator Abe.
It was gathered that the APC select stakeholders’ meeting convened by Amaechi held at the Port Harcourt GRA home of Chief Andrew Uchendu, where party leaders from Obio-Akpor, Port Harcourt City, Emohua and Ikwerre Local Government areas attended, Amaechi accused Abe, who was not invited, of being a traitor.
