The recommendation by some members of the APC National Working Committee reportedly led by estranged Deputy Publicity Secretary , Timi Frank that indicted Former Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi be investigated and prosecuted has torn the crisis ridden party into different factions, Blackface News can reveal.Investigations revealed that the Timi Frank committee believed to have the backing of the National Leader of APC , Asiwaju Bola Tinubu recommended that President Muhammadu Buhari should also allow EFCC prosecute Amaechi for the 14 petitions submitted with valuable evidences made available to the anti-corruption agency.
According to the APC leaders, if Buhari starts the prosecution of Amaechi, many Nigerians will believe his anti-corruption fight.
They therefore asked Buhari to sack Amaechi as he has become a huge liability to the party.
It was gathered that the APC leaders behind embattled Amaechi are led by Kaduna State Governor , Nasir El-Rufai and Plateau State Governor , Simon Lalong.
A presidency source noted that this group maintain that Amaechi deserves protection because he invested over N200billion to fund APC Presidential and governorship candidates.
The El-Rufai group argued that Amaechi was promised protection from prosecution alongside Fashola when they invested scarce resources to sponsor Buhari and others.
Prominent sources also told Blackface News that Amaechi like he did during the ministerial screening when Buhari wanted to dump him, has threatened to release documentary evidence of how he funded Buhari and APC to the Press.
It was learnt that he has turned in the photocopies to Buhari.
Following the position of the El-Rufai group , Buhari it was learnt directed his Spokesperson, Femi Adesina to coordinate paid media campaign to launder Amaechi’s image. The source said that should the media campaign fail by Christmas, Amaechi will be sacked.
The Former Rivers State Governor is said to have approached some Emirs and prominent Obas in Southwest to assist him prevail on Buhari to give him more time to heighten image laundering propaganda.
