No crisis in Rivers’ APC but multiplicity of interests —Sen. Uchendu
Chief Andrew Uchendu is the senator representing Rivers East Senatorial District in the National Assembly. A seasoned technocrat, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress(APC), a major stakeholder in the party and a well known grassroot politician in Rivers State, Chief Uchendu has been a recurring decimal in the political equation of Rivers State since 1999. He had served for three terms of 12 years as a member of the House of Representatives, representing Ikwerre/Emohua Federal Constituency before he was encouraged by his people to move up to the Senate. He spoke to journalists on the crisis in the Rivers State chapter of the APC and the face off between his senate colleague from Rivers State, Sen. Magnus Abe and the immediate past governor of the state and Minister of Transport, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, who is the leader of APC in the State and South-South, and the political benefactor of both senators.
