Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi has burst the bubbles on why he is no longer friends with Dame Patience Jonathan.


According to AIT, the once cordial friendship between Nigeria’s first lady and the governor of Rivers state got soled when he refused to share the state money with her.

Gov Amaechi made this shocking revelation yesterday October 24th at the graduation ceremony of the Pioneer graduands of the Ignatus Ajuru University of Education held at Rumuolumeni in Rivers state.

Remember, when I became governor, I fought militancy. Right there where you built a new house used to be a hole where they pass into the river and escape. The security report reached me and I came here and chased the militants away. I asked them to fence the school premises and block the hole. I have to protect you because it is my responsibility.

Some of the militants went to Lagos, Ivory Coast, Ghana etc. Today, they are back because the wife of the President bought them back to protest against me.” I refused to give them money in Abuja because if I do that, I won’t be able to carry out any developmental projects or finish the road from Rumuolumeni to Rumuepirikom. The quarel between me and the wife of the Preseident is because she said I should bring your money, Rivers peoples money and share with her” Governor Amaechi alleges

Governor Amaechi further told the graduands that they should be careful of who they vote into power come 2015. He was quoted telling the graduands that if they vote for President Jonathan back into power in next year’s general elections, rivers state’s economy would crumble. He said:
“Now that you are graduates, you are eligible voters that can use your voters card to change society. Ask yourself this question that I have always asked Rivers people. What have we (Rivers people) done to President Jonathan that he has refused to bring any project to Rivers state.
We had to fight them before they could do the East-West road. I had to abuse the federal government and they abused me back before they could do the work you now see on that road. Our President, from the South-South, has taken oil wells from Soku in Rivers state to Bayelsa state.
What about the 41 oil wells in Etche that was given to Abia state? Is the President or his wife from Abia? Why do they want us to suffer? If President Jonathan comes back to power in 2015, Rivers state economy will crash” he said

It would be recalled that many notable  Nigerians have lambasted the president calling him an insensitive leader who is only concerned with his 2015 political ambition.
