The Interview magazine reports that Abe said Amechi’s actions may hurt the party badly in the forthcoming elections.
He also accused Amaechi of running a one-man show.
Abe said, “My grievances with the transportation minister has nothing to do with him supporting me or not. I have told him clearly that he is free to support who he wants. My disagreement with him is that he said I should not run, and I said I would run.”
The lawmaker added, “To come to my house, call me in front of my wife and tell me not to try contesting was the height of it. I said no, I would not accept, I would contest.”
