Buhari, Tinubu Arrive Port Harcourt As Security Agents Block Amaechi, Supporters

Amaechi-visitedAhead of their rescheduled meeting on Tuesday with Governor Rotimi Amaechi, leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have arrived in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

It would be recalled that the APC leaders could not meet with the Rivers governor as earlier planned due to what was termed ‘logistics’ problem.

However, those already in the oil city today are Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former head of state, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and the party’s Interim National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande.

It was learnt that Gov. Amaechi, who alongside other members of the G-7 governors met separately with former President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta; former head of the Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan and former Defense Minister, Theophilus Y. Danjuma in Lagos yesterday, arrived Port Harcourt on Tuesday morning and headed straight home before returning to receive the visiting APC leaders.

At the main gate of Port Harcourt’s airport Omagwa, policemen prevented the governor’s supporters from joining the rally which forced Amaechi to ditch his convoy and trek about four kilometers accompanied by a crowd of supporters, to the airport.

He later spoke with reporters at the airport VIP Lounge.

  1. I wish Amaechi goodluck,but he should know that it’s not going to be an easy task for him,if not for any other thing,he should support GEJ on brotherly terms…

  2. If there is any word like ingrate its Rivers translation is Governor Amaechi. A man who came into Power as Governor of Rivers state without contesting any Gubernatorial election in 2007 and now he wants the World to see him as a fair and just man with all his tyrant leadership to Rivers people and now that God has heard the pleas of the state he is accusing the FG for his own misfortunes. Even the Bible said it that he will strip the proud from their position and uplift the meek to a point of Elevations. I belief that Governor Amaechi never knew the Value of his position until he rebelled against his Leaders.

  3. Any drama being played by politicians is purely a game of interest. Anybody who is not a politician should cease showering abuses and insults at political actors. The same people you see fighting today may become the best of friends tomorrow!

  4. All those who talk against Amaechi are nothing but bigots, non democrats and sycophants.Amaechi is a political idol as far Rivers politics is concerned. Nobody can coerce him cos he has a mind of his own. He knows what is saying and so any Niger Deltan who is drumming a regional lyrics is on his own. Watch out for 2015
