Every ethnic group has right to Rivers governorship – Amaechi slams wike by DefHQ: 11:14am On Jun 14
Former Rivers State Governor and
Ex Chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has stressed the importance of rotational governorship in the state.

He explained that apart from the Ikwerre ethnic nationality, any other ethnic group in the state should contest and win next governorship election.

Having himself ruled the state as governor from Ikwerre ethnic group, Governor Amaechi said it would be unfair for yet another Ikwerre son or daughter to continue to aspire to become governor of the state in 2023

He spoke when the chiefs and elders of Ogu/Bolo paid him a solidarity visit in Port Harcourt on Friday.

“Now what I am now fighting for is to give the Okirika man, the Ogu/Bolo man a voice..If Wike is bringing an Ikwerre man to run for governorship when an Ikwerre man has run for 16 years it means that Ikwerre would dominate the governorship of the state. It means that you will never have a chance of being governor again, that’s what it means because the reason for doing that is ‘oh they are claiming we have xyz number of votes in Obio/Akpor, xyz number of votes in Port Harcourt, xyz number of votes in Ikwerre and Emohua, so only Ikwerre people’, if they sit together they can be electing themselves always for governorship and I have told Ikwerre people that that young man whose ambition is blinding him must be thrown out, all Ikwerre people must rise against him and vote for a candidate from another ethnic group.”

“If you people allow them and they succeed, then forget your children, they will never be governor again because all it will take is when he finishes, another Ikwerre man will say I will run o and go and tell Ikwerre people I’m your son, don’t allow these people take it from me and Ikwerre people will back him,
even if you are one ethnic group of 20,000 persons, you have a right to the governorship of the state.”

“So Ikwerre people have had their turn over and over again and I’m an Ikwerre son, my mother is Ikwerre, my father is Ikwerre, I’ve no blood from any other relationship, so Ikwerre people can’t say i am not Ikwerre”.

Fight over Omehias governorship ambitions.. Vintage Amaechi paying to the gallery..
Amaechi grabbed the governorship position from Omehia with the help if One Nyesomghosa Wikevie, through one of the most bizarre Supreme Court rulings in Nigerias recent memory. Since then, his loyalty gas been all over the place! Partly because of the fact that lots "foreigners" helped him upturn Omehias victory at the apex court, Amaechis loyalty has been for "foreign interests" ever since.. Without them, he wouldn't have been relevant, he thinks..

Now it's starting to look like the same Omehia will take over from Wikevie..
And a restless Amaechi is not having any of that and is already whipping up ethnic sentiments against Wikevie and his plans. Expect buharis Army and police to join soon. Nyesomghosa Wikevie is a character really! The same irritant who shouts himself hoarse at every juncture in his perceived fight against those trying to swallow ikwerre is the one trying to turn the politics of a multi ethnic state like Rivers into a one tribe affair! The irony...

Ikwerre are playing Rivers people sha.
Wike and Amaechi will meet in Ogbakor Ikwerre and laugh together as they plot Ikwerre domination of the state.
Then Amaechi will come out in day light and start pretending to care about equity for other minorities, so as not to project Ikwerre as a power grabbing group.
grin

Good old long con game.
Kudos to Ogbakor Ikwerre mafia. They are doing well. grin

They have mastered the art the Fulanis-Hausas have perfected in National politics.
They use party politics to confuse other Rivers people while they position themselves as leaders of both two main parties.
Look how Seikibo(PDP) was chanced by Uchendu (APC) in the Senate grin while Wike was grinning and Amaechi is pretending to care about Riverine people.

Are you in Rivers state? Stop talking what you don't know.

I wouldn't say that Amaechi cares about the Riverine but he still has small conscience compared to Wike.

He has consistently battled to install a Riverine governor both on and off the fields.

Amaechi is a con man .

He was once addressed as an Igbo man in a gathering, and he took the microphone from the M.C and said that he is an Ikwerre man, like immediately.

Some of you can't make use of your Brain to Know when someone is playing you. It's annoying.

"The highlight of the event, for me, was when Item High Chief, Prof. Joe Irukwu, took the microphone to personally honour and introduce Amaechi when it was his turn to say a few nice words for Arumma. Irukwu described Amaechi correctly as the “high-performing” Governor of Rivers and a “true Igbo son”. But when Amaechi took the mike he “corrected” Irukwu and emphasised: “I am an Ikwerre man!” That really ruffled feathers."

Amaechi is not confused, he is a con Man.

So what is wrong with that? Cant an Nsukka man say he is an Nsukka man? Cant an Ngwa man say he is an Ngwa man? So what is wrong with Amaechi saying he is an Ikwerre man?

It's all in your head bro, you are overthinking it and being utterly cynical.

This is 6 years into Wike's tenure. Even if they conspired at the time, the benefits are long gone.
Amaechi has no reason to continue to play games with Wike.
He and His people are being persecuted daily in Rivers state with no single choppings for them.

Even at this point what would it profit Amaechi to continue to feign a beef with Wike to help Wike install another Ikwere governor ?

There is no sense in it at this point, this Ikwere agenda allegstion doesn't make any sense.

Being in APC can do a lot of brain damage

He is the only one in APC that swings between sanity and insanity

Though his moments of insanity is greater

This is one of his rare sane moments
