Former Governor of Rivers and Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, said he adopted what he called sidon look (sit and watch) approach to the APC crisis.
The minister, who spoke during a television interview on Tuesday, insisted that though he was not helpless, he had opted to keep sealed lips on the issue of the crisis rocking the party.
He said, “Nigerians know me for being blunt and honest. Some see it as arrogance; some see it as being harsh. What do I need to say that I have not said before? It’s internal dynamics of politics. It’s internal struggle.
“So, I have said it several times, when we fought in 2015, I said this country cannot continue the way it is going. I’m not helpless, but I’m doing what they call ‘sidon look’.
“What is happening in the APC? I don’t know; what is happening in Rivers State? I don’t know. What I’ve done is to keep away from politics. Even if I’m bothered, it’ll be internally; there’s nobody there (in the party) who is a child. We’re all adults. I don’t want to get involved in the politics.”
Amaechi also cautioned his supporters and Rivers people to steer clear of violence.
