Rivers State Governor Chibuike Amaechi said yesterday that he belongs to the faction of the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) led by Abubakar Kawu Baraje.

Amaechi spoke to reporters in Port Harcourt shortly after arriving from Abuja.

Speaking on the pulling out of some PDP governors and Stakeholders at the weekend’s PDP mini convention in Abuja and the subsequent press briefing by the Atiku Abubakar-led PDP faction, Amaechi said: “I am not the national chairman, the national chairman is Abubakar Kawu Baraje and he is the only person who is qualified to speak for now or the publicity secretary. All I know is that I belong to the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) led by Abubakar Kawu Baraje and we are forging ahead because we need to make some changes”.

On PDP’s electoral fortunes in 2015, he said: “Well, when we get to 2015 God will determine that. We can’t be discussing 2015 now. We will discuss 2015 when we get to 2015″.

On the decision of Rivers statutory delegates to boycott Saturday’s mini PDP Convention, Amaechi said: “You know, the chairman of the party and the members of the National Assembly and House of Assembly took that decision, I wasn’t around, so I wouldn’t know what to say about that, but the most important thing is that we are on course”.

Amaechi also said he would not know the outcome of the meeting President Goodluck Jonathan had with some governors in Abuja since he was not at the meeting
