THE Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers State has faulted the international conference on good governance and democracy, organised by the state government.
The Director-General of the state PDP, Mr. Emma Woke, described the conference as a waste of resources.
Woke said on Wednesday that the conference was another way by which the state Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, was using to justify the trillions of naira he had received since he became the governor.
He said the governor had failed to practise what he preached and should not be taken seriously.
Woke said, “Amaechi’s penchant in wasting the resources of the state to organise frivolous seminars and conferences is just to justify the trillions of naira he has received so far since he became governor by judicial circumstances in 2007.
“One will not stop to wonder the kind of good governance the likes of Amaechi is talking about; is it to cast aspersion on a party platform through which he became a governor in 2007 and 2011?
“Is Amaechi’s good governance to divert the state’s billions of naira to fund a party that was his opposition in the past seven and half years when he was in PDP?
“Amaechi should be man enough to tell his friends, the former British Prime Minister, Jack Straw; and the former Irish PM, John Bruton, that he is a fair weather politician who left his former party, PDP, because the internal democracy of the party forbade him from being dictatorial.”
