SMH! The messy and disgraceful politics run in Nigeria! They scheme so well when its got to do with issues pertaining to themselves(political cabal and cohorts) How I wish they can be this competent in swiftness to the development of the nation rather than their individual and future gains and plans.

''Fret not thyself because of evildoers
Neither be thou envious against the workers of inequity
For they shall soon be cut down, cut down like grass
And they shall wither like corn''.

Rotimi Amaechi is part of them. God's justice is perfect.

''As the smoke was driven away, Jah drive them away
As the wax melted, let them be melted Jah Jah''.

How was your state before he became Governor? How many model Primary or Secondary schools did you have? How was Ikwerre Road, Trans-Amadi, Old Ana Road, Eliozu Road, Ada George, Port Harcourt Town, etc before he came into power?

The people indeed are their own enemies. Am sure people like you would have preferred Odili's kind of govt- chop, share and chop more! Nonsense!

Anonymous said...

Gov Amaechi obviously did not read the book '48 laws of power'. He broke the first rule. My dear don't feel for him. He did worse to his party members in Rivers PDP. Forget all the wash wash you guys see in the media about him. To the average Rivers man, we know who he truly is and stands for. How many Rivers People do u see standing up for him? He is only reaping what he has sown. Dasall!

Everyone shouting APC, pls tell me how much better are they???! With the likes or Sir T of Bourdillon how much better are they? It's because they have not had a chance to 'rule' (I hate when they say that..you can just whiff the stench of arrogance). The future of Nigerians is not about these thieving thugs in either of the major political parties (I shudder to even call them that), it is in OUR hands. The continued siddon look mentality is what is killing us. Well, I guess we like it, if not we would have done something about it. Shikena.

All of them are fools but amechi is a bigger fool! Remember when he used to fight even d presidents wife, going as far as sacking her cousin from chairmanship of a particular town, did he think he wld go free? The president na thief so is Amechi so I don't support either! It's not as if Amechi is fighting GEJ for the betterment of Nigerians but for his selfish ambition so let him enjoy it. Arrogant git!

Thank you @Anon 11.26pm. Those were my thoughts b4 i even scrolled down to see your comment. Some people will just come here to comment stupidly. Guilty ke. This is politics and not 'beauty of the day' talk. Either you follow the gist from the beginning or you gather what transpired from others commenting.

Linda why did you not write what PDP said Amechi did.Pls don't be bias! PDP made it clear that his offense was that he refused to reinstate the elected Chairman and 17 Councillors they suspended in Obio/Akpor LGA as suggested by the the Rivers State PDP executive, for the interest of peace in the state .It is political too that the Chairman and all the 17 Councillors of Obio/Akpor which is one of the largest LGA, were suspended for sometime now probably because they were not in Amechi's faction.So what he measured unto others is what is coming back to him! Politiking! No permanent friend no permanent enemy! Rob my back! I rob ur own!

bubbles said...

Of cus there's no offence now,except something he did when they were friends...then they would use it against it...after having an argumnt with GEJ what did he expect...never bite the finger that fed u. Anyway na them sabi na their papa heads them they play with not mine

Anonymous said...

God bless u, he is such a vindictive fellow! Instead of directing his energy towards resolving the issues confronting his country, he is busy chasing after Amaechi, wat a shame!

My thoughts exactly $ petty!if ameachi leaves pdp 4 anoda party pdp might loose Rivers state $ I knw dey wldnt want dat.its nt a crime 2 be ambitious after all GEJ is comin out 4 2015 electn,if dat is nt being ambitious I wonder wht is.*mschewww.Ameachi is nt perfect bt his better than is Predecessor.*eyes rolling

Julius said.. Amaechi cant be opposition to his own party I think it is better for him to join the opposition party.

Anonymous said...

Amaechi wont join any opposition party, he only got suspended by the pdp, not expulsion. something affiliated to GEJ's instructions mediated this, and every complex thinker in the country can see that the pdp is only showcasing disunity as a distraction to their opposition parties. call it a fug of activities to buy them time in preparation and execution of their electoral strategy for 2015.. quote me when I say GEj and Amaechi are playing mind games here, else ask urself why a politic as that of the president will resort into war wt a region that comprises a major percentage of his votes and support. he may be slow, but not stupid. refer to the announcement made on the 1st of January 2012, a deviation for the country's rationale on other pending issues which required government intervention. everything has been predicted bt re-evaluation, re-strategizing and control are the elements they all await to employ, hail pdp... charlestol endorses...

Anonymous said...

The Apple does not fall far from the tree!!! Amechi is a pdp bred so he knows what their party laws are..if along the line his personal ambition conflicts with their shady laws then he should face the music and stop hoping to gain sympathy from anybody because these politicians don't have pity for anybody..I remember how vocal he was during the fuel subsidy wahala he was the most vocal governor in support of GEJ's subsidy removal scam...now it's his turn to cry foul!!!
