Nnamdi Eze, Senior Political Correspondent, Port Harcourt

This is certainly not the best of times for the former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, and Governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress as his efforts to reconcile with his estranged Political benefactor Mr Rotimi Amaechi has failed.

The Third Eye News gathered that following the defeat of Senator Akpabio at the just concluded National Assembly polls, the former NDDC boss is said to have paid a visit to Amaechi to go and straighten things up with the Minister of Transport in a bid to enlist Amaechi’s help towards his Governorship bid this Saturday.

Our source at the Minister’s residence disclosed that Amaechi’s faceoff with Mr Ekere which was somewhat connected with his sack as NDDC MD came against the backdrop of what Mr Amaechi has termed as the “unnecessary reverence and loyalty” to Akpabio by Ekere. This faceoff was aggravated by Akpabio’s repeated boasts that he will deliver the whole Niger Delta region to Buhari during the just concluded Presidential election.

But at Amaechi’s residence, things did not quite go smoothly for Ekere as Mr Chidi Lloyd, the controversial former leader of the Rivers State House of Assembly (RSHA) had shouted at Mr Ekere and pushed him out of the Palour where he was seated and waiting to meet with Amaechi.

Our source hinted that Mr Lloyd made pointed accusations at Mr Ekere, referring to Ekere as an “ungrateful little brat” who paid Amaechi with a bad coin after Amaechi singlehandedly made him the NDDC MD.

The Transport Minister is said to have intervened and asked Mr Chidi Lloyd to allow him hear Nsima out. After several minutes of plea, Mr Amaechi is said to have asked Mr Ekere to go back to Akpabio who he had invested so much trust in.

It would be recalled that Mr Ekere was sacked as Managing Director of NDDC by President Mohammed Buhari and replaced with someone allegedly nominated solely by the Minister of Transport, Mr Chibuike Amaechi. The sack is said to have met Mr Ekere as a shock.

The new Managing Director Mr Nelson Braimbraifa is said to be a core loyalist of Mr Amaechi.

It would further be recalled that one of the reasons Akpabio had forced Mr Ekere to resign as Deputy Governor under him was the accusation that he was getting to close to Amaechi and such closeness could become a channel through which Amaechi gets to diminish Akpabio growing political influence in the Niger Delta region at that time.
