Again, Amaechi Slams First Lady, Mrs Jonathan Over Rivers Political Crisis

“The wife of the President wanted to macro-manage governance in Rivers State and I said no, you cannot. I was elected. If I fail, they will not say the wife of the President failed.”

Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State stated this Friday at an interactive secession with Journalists in Port Harcourt.

He also said his stand to fight for the resources of the Rivers people made him to be on war path with President Jonathan accusing him of ceding some of the Rivers state oil wells to his home state, Bayelsa state.

“I am telling you why they want to crucify me. This fight is about change. It is about good governance. It is about accountability.

“They do not like Rivers State. They hate us. We are losing. Tell me one thing that Rivers State has gained from being part of the South South under Goodluck Jonathan’s Presidency.” He asked.

The governor further said that the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has failed even as he argued that All Progressive Congress (APC) remains the credible alternative to the ruling party.

The governor, who is also the chairman of the governors forum, added that by next year many more governors, Senators and members of the House of Representatives will dump the PDP and join the APC.

He said: “Watch out before March if we (APC member) don’t have the numbers that we are looking for” both at the national assembly and the governors forum.

Our correspondent reports that the presidency is believed to be fueling the Rivers State crisis through the minister of education, Mr Wike Nyesome and the police commissioner MT Mbu, both of whom have feared well in energizing the crisis.

  1. Ok so if your alledged victimization stop u go come back to pdp hahahah and u think its the governor senator and reps members that will vote what regard go uou have for true voters we will know who is true mejority when d yime comes guy get out your high horese

  2. Even a blind person with some common sense would have figured out that what Gov. Amaechi was saying is true. The president and his wife have no good intention for the people of Rivers State and Nigerians as a whole. They want to rule the country as if it’s their personal property. It’s impossible. Jonathan’s is a good example of BAD governance. No progress in Nigeria: Universities on strike for ever, unemployment at its highest level in decades, horrible infrastructures and the level of corruption, nepotism and incompetence is unprecedented!
