Rerun: Amaechi To APC Supporters, “If You Allow Them To Shoot You, You Will Die" by sirequity(m): 3:16pm On Dec 08, 2016
A former Governor of Rivers State and serving Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, has charged supporters of the All Progressives Congress in the state to match their Peoples Democratic Party counterparts with force as the two parties prepare for rerun polls on Saturday.
“This Is what I called “elections of our lives,” said Mr. Amaechi addressing supporters during APC’s mega rally in Port Harcourt on Thursday.

The rally witnessed presence of APC leaders, including Chairman John Odigie-Oyegun, 12 governors and federal lawmakers.

Speaking further, Mr. Amaechi, said, “I used to tell you” please don’t fight”. But I think we will bend it a beat.
“Don’t kill anybody but don’t be killed. My friend in the army told me if bullet is fired, the person that hears the sound is not the one that dies.

“If you allow them to shoot you, you will die. It’s not only them that have rights to life.”

Following court rulings that invalidated 2015 National Assembly and State House elections in the oil-rich State, the Independent National Electoral Commission had earlier conducted rerun polls on March 19.
But the exercise was marred by violence, forcing INEC to suspend the elections- now to be held on Saturday.


The Saturday rerun elections will hold across three senatorial districts, eight federal constituencies and 10 state constituencies.

But the rhetoric from both APC and PDP leaders have heat up the build-up to the rescheduled elections, raising fears of electoral violence again.

Also speaking at Thursday’s APC rally, various leaders of the party charged their followers to confront PDP.
Severally, they said, “if they push you, push them; if they slap you slap them.”

In his remarks, Mr. Odigie-Oyegun reassured APC supporters of “federal might”.

Other APC leaders at the rally were Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal; Kano State Governor, Umar Ganduje; former Akwa Ibom Governor, Don Etiebet; a senator, Jibrin Barau; and Ondo State Governor-elect, Rotimi Akeredolu, among others.

But in a swift reaction, PDP-controlled Rivers Government slammed APC leaders for inciting violence in the State.

In a statement, the State’s Commissioner for Information, Austin Tam-George, blamed “the Minister for Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi for importing thugs and Boko Haram fighters, disguised as APC supporters, to cause mayhem in Rivers State.

“Governor Ganduje had charged APC supporters to resort to violence during the rerun elections in Rivers State on Saturday, saying: “if they shoot you, take cover and shoot them.

“This is a shameful and egregious invitation to violence by the Kano State governor.”

The Commissioner urged the people of Rivers State to resist any acts of electoral fraud by the police, INEC and APC before, during and after the elections on Saturday.

I am petrified! I cannot believe a federal figure like Amaechi, a supposed learned human being, could make such statement, highly capable of inciting gross violence. Pitiful!
And I can bet my entire life his children are not part of those he was addressing: other people's beloved children.
Well, I don't blame him; I believe those people made themselves available.

A minister of the federal republic of Nigeria,instigating violence all because of political offices.
Anyone who engages in any violent act cuz of these power greedy old foo.ls is even a bigger foo.l.
Is this the kind of governance and utterance that should be associated with a minister?
Anyone on Nairaland that supports what he has said or supports violence in this coming election,may u be part of the body count!

I love my country but I'm ASHAMED of our leaders!

And this kind of character is a prominent member of Buhari's "change" cabinet? The shameful fact that such OPENLY uttered incendiary comments will be condoned (or even encouraged/approved) by the idiotic Buhari presidency speaks volumes.

Fellow Nigerians, your woes are only just beginning. Brace up.

if a sitting minister tells you to take the law into your hands it confirms that the current administration he is a part of cannot assure the security of your life and properties. i hope the good people of rivers would be pro life and vote in peace.

This is treasonable, but he hasn't said anything worse than what Buhari himself said. Na them them, party of blood suckers.
I only pity the potential wasted souls this reckless statement would cost.
