How PDP bribed some pastors with N6 Billion to campaign against APC, Buhari — Amaechi

Rotimi-Amaechi

The Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi, on Tuesday accused the Peoples Democratic Party of bribing some Christian leaders in the country with N6billion to campaign against the All Progressives Congress and its presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.

Mr. Amaechi made the claim at the APC governorship rally in Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Having collected the said amount, Mr. Amaechi who is also the Director-General of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, maintained that some Christian leaders started promoting propaganda to the effect the APC and Mr. Buhari would Islamise Nigeria if elected in the forthcoming election

He urged the said pastors to return the money to government coffers, adding that the Christian faith had been turned into a business enterprise.

He said, “Some pastors collected N6bn and they are circulating document and telling you not to vote for an Hausa man; not to vote for a Muslim; that they want to Islamise Nigeria. Tell them to return our N6bn.

“They gave them N6bn; they should return it to the Federal Government coffers. They will tell you that Buhari wants to Islamise Nigeria; tell them we are too educated.

“I am a Catholic, but no Catholic priest has told me that story right now in the Catholic Church because I will ask him how? If any pastor tells you that, tell him to return the money.

“Nobody can Islamise Nigeria; they have commercialised Jesus Christ. They should stop commercialising Jesus Christ. He is our Lord and Saviour. You know what Jesus Christ did in the temple; he chased them away.

“We shall chase away those pastors who have collected money from PDP to tell us lies. We shall chase them away on behalf of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The governor however said Nigerians are too enlightened for any political party or an individual to change Nigeria to a Muslim country.

At the rally, he said the forthcoming elections in Rivers State would be a referendum about him and President Goodluck Jonathan.

“I told the President that the election in Rivers State is a referendum between him and me. I told him anywhere I go, I will show what I have done. Let him show what he has done,” Mr. Amaechi siad.

    I am asking religious leaders of my faith, catholic, to publicly denounce the purported-CAN endorsement of Johnathan and extricate themselves from the evil messages being sent around about Buhari. Unless this is done, I am assuming they partook in the bribe taking.
    Personally, I have zero respect for these pastors with private jets. Sorry for broke-a$$ Nigerians giving the little they have to these 419-pastors.
    Buhari did not Islamize Nigeria when he had absolute power as head of state. If the clueless one has a record to run on, he would not have spent so much energy and money trying to paint Buhari black.
    I wonder what Christians benefited from GEJ being a Christian in the last 6yrs. Dumb a$$es.

    • TRUTH MASTER

      ”Buhari did not Islamize Nigeria when he had absolute power as head of state”. This is a powerful line that knocks the bottom off this nonsense argument about Islamizing Nigeria. Only the gullible will swallow that bait. If ‘Pastors’ like, let them collect 100 billion. God will defeat them next week!

      Firstly, Muslims like you have to moral right to denigrate any person of other faith as you know the obvious reasons.
      The Pastors are thieves? good but better than Imams that will advocate for child marriage, even mohamed married a 9 year old.
      Imams advocate against tolerance and the result is being felt the world over.
      Pastors are thieves, but they build schools while Imams advocate against it, Shekau and Buhari himself are obvious examples.
      I do not support anybody but Muslims must learn to stop crying even when they are the aggressors.
      I heard is okay to lie in Islam as far as it helps the Jihad.
      Amaechi is a drowning man, anything to survive will do.
      So cut the crap and face your Islamic Is###t

      • Denis_NG

        Just because he denounced the satanic and shameful acts of our moneybag pastors, that’s what makes his a Muslim, even despite his name? You need a redemption for real!! Jonathan and his Cash-N-Carry Pastors have completely bastardized and polarized this country to the extent that only a thorough house cleaning by Buhari and Osinbajo can restore it to its harmonic past. These so called evangelical (prosperity) Pastors are nothing but odious agents of Hades!

  • Wähala

    I am also a hardline Catholica and follower of Christ thus… a Christian. There’s nowhere in my Bible where Christ says to pay a percentage of my earnings to my parish priest, none whatsoever! Buhari did not so much as attend one OIC meeting as Head of State much less contemplate Islamizing Nigeria when he had a gun under his belt. It’s all evil PDP propaganda after every slanderous effort so far have failed to sway Nigerians. All pastors are fake cultists involved in esoteric and evil human sacrifices, none has affinity with God and none can see beyond their noses. They’re con men Buhari will go after with increased luxury taxes on their expensive toys, that’s why they are willing tools in the hands of an equally Godless Jona Dumbo. Oyedapo ati Oletsejafor are my prime suspects… Thieves!

      You are not a good Catholic. People like you give Catholicism a bad name, for your profanity has reached its climax. Each time you open your mouth you sound like a heathen, curse like a pagan, mock like an infidel. Have you opened the Holy Bible in your life? If you claim to be a Catholic can you say the rosary, can your recite the Mysteries?

      My advise to you is that each time you finish commenting on these tabloids go to confessions.

  • IAMAFRICAN

    You don’t have to be a pastor to denounce sharia in it’s totality.

    Sharia was the first thing the northern Fulanis thought about in 1999 and till today they will rather die than allow a sharia free Nigeria state.

    Nigeria was built on falsehood and until we tell each other the truth we SHALL NEVER MOVE FORWARD in real terms.

    The man Amaechi (may his true self rest in peace) can even insult the pope to gain power come May 29.

    He has a lot to lose if APC fails. He lives in River State.

    Imams including Shekau and friends cause problems every now and then and through their evil the north has experienced the death of thousands of Christians through; Danish cartoon, Reinhard Bonnke visit and numerous other situations.

    As far as you are not a Muslim, to an average Muslim you are an infidel. Though some does hide this basic truth of Islam.
    The Pastors have every right to fight for their survival and every right to join the train they think can bring them freedom.

      It is true. Maybe you will soon receive the message from CAN. Amaechi is only trying to be prudent. Oritsejafor is the main actor in this matter, going by whatsapp message he’s been extending to Christians saying we shouldn’t vote for Buhari because he would Islamise Nigeria. Why is Oritsejafor messing up the name of CAN and Christians in Nigeria. It was his private jet that was used to take millions of dollars in cash to South Africa last year, which was impounded by the South African government. He’s the worst President of CAN since the establishment of the body. He’s partisan and corrupt. We heard of the former CAN president, Cardinal Onaiyekan, and the Sultan calling for free polls and unity in Nigeria without religious sentiments 2 days ago. Now see what Oritsejafor has decided to do just because he is a personal friend of Jonathan. This is despicable of someone calling himself a man of God and CAN PRESIDENT. I’ve no doubt in my mind that he’s the brain behind the useless message. Jonathan wants to cause religious war in Nigeria, which is far more brutal than civil war. Go and see what religious war has caused, and still causing, in South Sudan. Nigerians, do not allow Jonathan to drive Nigeria to religious war between Christians and Muslims just because of his selfish interest and personal aggrandizement. If religious war should start, I tell you most solemnly, the effect will be far worse than Boko Haram terrorism. Nations that have experienced religious war would tell you that it’s the most terrible kind of war that can plague any country

  • BREAKING NEWS

    BUHARI’S LIFE OBJECTIVE IS TO IMPLIMENT SHARIA IN ALL OFNIGERIA ……….. TO IMPILIMENT SHARIA IN ALL OF NIGERIA IS EQUAL TO THE ISLAMISATION OF ALL OF NIGERIA

    Now, Let me tell Rotimi Amaechi how Buhari will Islamise Nigeria

    1. First what is it that drafted Buhari into Politics after retirement ….. Sharia

    Buhari was drawn into politics on the wave of religious messianism after the Sharia riots of 2000 which swept across
    the Muslim North. He supported it openly and vowed to ensure it is taken to all parts of Nigeria, including the non-Muslim parts. It was from this constituency that he always got his votes in the three previous times he has vied for the presidency.

    Point: It was the need to defend, sustain and extend Sharia that lured Buhari into politics

    2. What is Buhari’s Mission in life ……. Sharia

    In 2001 at an Islamic seminar in Kaduna, Buhari was given an opportunity to choose between Nigeria’s secularism and fundamentalist Islam, this is what he said; “I will continue to show openly and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria”, he then added that; “God willing, we will not stop the agitation for the total implementation of Sharia in all of Nigeria”.Buhari an advocate of sharia was chosen to address that seminar in Kaduna because of his advocacy and he did not disappoint because he is one of the boardroom voices of Sharia.

    3. Based on 1 & 2 above …. Will Buhari defend the secular constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria ? …… the answer is a BIG NO.

    4. If Buhari as Commander-in-Chief (God forbid) cannot defend the secular constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria because of his avowed committemnt to Sharia ……… who then can stop the unconstitutional spread of Sharia in Nigeria ? ……. Nobody!!! Therein lies the road that will lead to Islamisation of Nigeria.

    5. It is almost impossible for anybody to Islamise Nigeria using the constitutional road but it is very, very easy for
    anybody to Islamise Nigeria using the unconstitutional road whereby the Commander-in-Chief will keep quiet and will never arise to defend the secular constitution as in the case of Buhari.

    6. The 12 Northern States that are substantially practising Sharia today are doing so via the unconstitutional road simply
    because the then Commander-in-Chief who is hand-in-gloves with the Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani failed to defend the constitution.

    7. But their efforts were restricted to parts of the North because the then Commander-in-Chief (OBJ) may not co-operate
    with them if they had tried to extend Sharia nationwide. Buhari certainly will co-operate with them in line with his mission and passion in life.

    FINALLY: Buhari has stated openly that he will not defend Nigeria’s secular constitution because of his commitment to the implimetaition of Sharia in all of Nigeria. To implemet Sharia in all of Nigeria is the same as saying that you will have all
    of Nigeria Islamised.

    Sharia has no accommodation for Christianity except it severely restrained and consigned to a miserable existence at the mercy of Muslims.

    We must defend and keep Nigeria secular.

    “In PDP, the chairman is a Muslim, DG of the campaign is a Muslim, the VP is a Muslim, only the president is a Christian” – words of VP, Namadi Sambo

    Namadina Sambo told PDP supporters at a rally in Monna, Niger state, that Buhari and APC want to christianize Nigeria. He told them in order to whip up religious sentiments. He doesn’t care if his statement triggers off a religious crisis, all he wants is to keep stealing money. We thought Jonathan ws clueless, Sambo is worse, this explains why Nigeria has been in a sorry state. President ode, Vice president sef mumu.

    Odili, in Ndoni Local Government Area of the state, at a campaign rally for the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Nyesom Wike, alleged that Governor Amaechi dismantled structures that the founding fathers of the PDP had in the state when he assumed office.WHAT A SHAME

    “Igbos Hate Me Because of Biafra War” – Buhari In BBC Hausa.

    Maj Gen Muhammadu Buhari has dropped the bombshell, on the reason he has been losing election in Igboland and parts of Nigeria where Igbos are residing, stating that it is because he was involved in the Nigerian civil war.

    The former dictator speaking today on BBC Hausa services monitored in kaduna, said with regrets that, “the igbos hate him for what happened during the Biafran war”. “I don’t have any regret, and at such do not owe any apology to them, infact if there is a repeat of the civil war again, I will kill more Igbos to save the country”.

    The APC presidential candidate, added that this was the reason they never bothered to vote for him anywhere in Nigeria.

    It is shame, that a man that is aspiring to rule the whole country, not part of it, will talk in this manner.

    BEWARE, THIS MAN HAS NEVER TALKED ABOUT PEACE, BUT BLOODBATH AND PAIN.

    • true nigerian

      You stinking liar

    • amazing2012

      Igbos are cursed and stupidity in their conscience. Not only BUHARI who perhaps participated in the war but they hate even ordinary Ausa man saling suya who is also a victim of the same tyrants that tormented Nigeria.
      Igbos taught their children not to believe in Nigeria and the bitterness of the war they deliberately fought and lost woefully. Who to blame ? You fought war and lost, and does war has a law on who to kill and how ? Do you remember those you also killed ? After the war, nigeria government releases all he igbos prisoners but Biafra side killed all those in their captivity, in thousands. Still Nigeria forgive those murderers and pay them their benefits of retirements of tag rag judas army.
      Igbos are sick mentally,imagine you hate someone at 20th century for what he has not choosing to be ? Imagine you hate some one on what he is not aware or he was not born that time ? Imagine you taught your child history of hate/bitterness from childhood ?
      To cont:

      • Jujubeans

        @amazing2012. That is hate speech against Ndigbo. I sincerely hope you won’t be going to church/mosque with that kind of hate in your heart.
        With regards the war approx 2 MILLION Igbos died, mostly children, from starvation. The Nigerian army deliberately let people starve to death. Infact.. They saw it as a legitimate tool of war.
        Now whilst millions of Igbos have moved on and DO embrace Nigeria. It is important for the rest of Nigerians to appreciate what we went through. We suffered greatly. The war hardly affected those in the west or in the North. Your lives carried on as normal. The greatest crime is that the history of the war is not taught in schools. Perhaps that would help you and others like you empathise a little.
        So, we move on, we love Nigeria, but let’s never forget.

    The problem with the Judas Iscariot of Port Harcourt is that first name of his, Rotimi. But who cares what he says? Is he not the same one who declared about a year ago in a public gathering that: “I and my fellow Governors are thieves…We will continue to steal because you people (Nigerians) have refused to stone us to death, so because you’ve refused to stone us, we will continue to steal.”

    It had been a brazen admittance of culpability in the market square. Wole was present. But instead of him to scold the rampaging prodigal deviant, he chose to stand and applaud such nuisance….and the drama ended…with PT & its sister media houses choosing to play down such rare revelations. It is the tragedy of our continent Nigeria where everything is based on latent regional and/or personal interests and never NATIONAL interests becos no nation exists.

    Were such a statement made by Dr Jonathan, it would still be a hit today. Were it Dr Goodluck who declared: “The blood of the Dogs and Baboons will be soaked on the streets should I lose the 2015 elections…” , it would certainly be a source of castigating remarks which would readily have featured in the Editorial of PT or elsewhere. But the statement was made by Duncee himself bcos he belongs to that group that can issue direct threats of whatever kind to all Nigerians.

    With 11/13 Presidents in 39/54 yrs, the North & West MUST get power back…and the ‘irrefutable presumption’ is that the South & East MUST accept it hook line and sinker. What a naivety! Dangerously self delusive!…and for the Judas Iscariot of Port Harcourt, it shall be unto him as it was to the Judas Iscariot of Judea. Amen? Amen!

    • amazing2012

      Jonathan is a real Juda who become a curse to Nigerians. Surely, Jonathan has done a great damage to Nigerians in our relationship with one another. Truly, most christians believed Buhari will Islamize Nigeria, but when you ask how they become dumb and deaf.
      Those you can call Judas are Jonathan aids, like labaran Maku who give much of the wrong advice to Mr president and now clearly betray him !
      As for us, Jonathan is the Juda who promised in the name lord to defend this country, to provide jobs, to give light, to unite Nigeria, etc to failed woefully. We pretend and decieved, most people believe voting Jona is voting Jesus christ even though they are suffering. Jesus our lord and Jona are two different thing, issue and parallel ways. While Jesus is a solution, Jona is the problem Jesus is solving.
      Jona is a disgrace to christ and shame to christians who voted him with vigor and hope but later turn to be curse!!

        Nigeria has being fighting religious war even before most of you were born. Religious war is not new in Nigeria. Read the constitution and you will know that the country has being in war for a long time. Worthy projects must first be put on papers before implementation, and that is what shekau and their sponsors are doing in the north east.

  • Ossy

    (Amazing 2012 you good jor) I think the Igbos are in rift with their
    conscience. Not only BUHARI who perhaps
    participated in the war but they hate even
    ordinary Ausa man saling suya who is also a
    victim of the same tyrants (Igbos) that tormented
    Nigeria.
    Igbos taught their children not to believe in
    Nigeria and the bitterness of the war they
    deliberately fought and lost woefully. Who to
    blame? You fought war and lost, and does war
    has a law on who to kill and how ? Do you
    remember those you also killed ? After the
    war, nigeria government releases all he igbos
    prisoners but Biafra side killed all those in
    their captivity, in thousands. Still Nigeria
    forgive those murderers and pay them their
    benefits of retirements of tag rag judas army.
    Igbos are sick mentally, imagine you hate
    someone at 20th century for what he has not
    choosing to be ? Imagine you hate some one on
    what he is not aware or he was not born that
    time ? Imagine you taught your child history
    of hate/bitterness from childhood ?
    the Igbos still have biafra in their plan till date. the fight was a sacrifice to keep the nation one.

    • viashima

      ossy please go back to school. We dont need likes of you and your failbuhari, the certificate forger.

    • kudirat

      Why can’t mad people keep quite instead of commenting rubbish and causing panic in the country. What is the topic and what is the contribution you just made. Now I know your lunatic nature don’t only stop with your household, you have decided to extend it to national issues. Stop making senseless contributions to cause ethnic conflict, instead stick to the the topic raised. Nigerians are good people and as I am from the west, I love my igbo family, hausa family and south-south family we are one nigeria and evil mad lunatic people like you can not divide us, send this message to your sponsors.

      • Ossy

        i hope those insult were not directed @ me cus if thats the case then you obviously didnt get my message. that post was a response to a hate post by an Ibo guy. so if you dont understand the mssg due to your poor edu background thats nt mo problem but dont try this again. am a Muslim & i respect people alot

        • kudirat

          Don’t let me pick you up cos you wouldn’t be able to stand the heat. If you respect people, you wouldn’t assume my educational background which you know am more sound than you. Just a warning for you to mind your business APC e-rat.

        • ND LUKE

          AMAECHI OR WHATever YOU CALL YOURSELF, YOU ARE A CONFUSED GOVERNOR WHO IS AFTER LEADERSHIP AND POSITION. YOU WERE IN PDP, WHAT MAKES YOU TO DECAMPED? YOUR ARE A POLITICAL PROSTITUTE. it is a shame for you to speak ill of your spiritual leaders.

    • Ebele Yucki

      youth ossy, the hausas don’t hate ibo’s. I can now see you are a 16year old girl with very low iq.

      • Emmie

        how many hausa have you been with or have close relation with ?

  • Ossy

    They say the youth are the future leaders of this great nation & i fear if some of you here form part of that folk then we will continue to have problems as a Nation. the politics of hate, disrespect, unguarded utrances, tribal & religious sentiments has been the order of the day on these platforms. I espect us as youth to understand what we represent for great nation & so do the needful to reflect how much we love our counry & our sincere wish for this nation, i said it before & am saying it again lets not take sides. When Soludo scored thi administration F9, people were calling for his head instead of deducing the facts of what he is saying & analize them as they affect us as a people. then Amaechi is raising a point of how much of our money is been spent on bribery & how far some of our pastors have politisized our faith & our trust in them, yet again some of us are calling for his head, my question is what do we care? a christian must rule? a muslim must rule? a Northerner must rule? a southerner must rule? or we should be concerned obout the state of dear nation. My Southern brother had six years & all we got is abuse of office & peopl’s trust, yet we are fighting to get him back to office all because of sentiments. we must as a people ruin this south-south agenda or christian thing & face reality cus in the end we suffer the consequence of our actions. thank you all. God bless Nigeria

    • Ebele Yucki

      so youth ossy I now see the youthful leader you are talking about: a 73year old grandfather

      • Ossy

        read my message before you respond pls. on your statement, when you travel home tell your granfather hes too old to be the head of your family the wait & listen to what he will tell you. rubish

  • viashima

    Amaechi is a chronic liar

    • Elis Davia

      He is desperate and its leading him into falsehood

  • Ette

    How will Buhari Islamise Nigeria when the National Assembly is in session, how will he do that when we hardly hear about his trip to Mecca, when he had absolute power and refused pressures to enrol NIGERIA in OIC, when some of his domestic servants are Christians, when he disassociated himself from boko haram when they appointed him as their negotiator, when he routed out Islamic fundamentalists during the various religious riots in the north. On the contrary, GEJ has been promoting Islamization of Nigeria in the following ways:
    1 He is the first NIGERIAN president to lead delegation to attend OIC a meeting in Egypt,
    2 He is the first NIGERIAN president to subscribe to the Islamic Development Bank with huge amount of dollars
    3 He is the first NIGERIAN president to allow Nigerian money to be used in establishing Islamic bank in Nigeria
    4 He is the first Nigerian president to refuse adequate protection to Christian communities in the northeast resulting in their being slaughtered and wiped out by boko haram.
    5 He is the first Nigerian president to surrender Christian communities to boko haram for declaration of Islamic state
    6 He is the first Nigerian president to abandon over 200 Christian girls so they could be forcefully converted to Islam

    Those collecting money from GEJ and PDP in the name of Christian support for the most wicked ruler in Nigeria are servants of mammon and will see the fierce judgment of God whose name they are profaning. When the righteous is on the throne the people rejoice. Kings who are God ordained are expected to punish evil and reward good works. The regime of GEJ has brought untold sufferings and lamentstions, and we are daily seeing the wicked being rewarded and sometimes the good ones are being punished through sack and persecutions. This regime can therefore not be said to be supported by God. Infact heaven and earth and the people of Nigeria have rejected this regime in all its ramifications. Why? Because in this regime, unbridled stealing of pensioners, subsidy, oil and gas money, etc, occur daily, over 20,000 people have been killed, bombs are exploding on a daily basis, lying has become normal, unemployment and poverty are at all time high, religious and ethnic crises are constant decimal. We must rise up and vote out this wicked government. God bless Nigeria.

    • kudirat

      APC e-rat how will buhari go to mecca when he is the mecca himself, how will he disassociate himself from his boys when they are carrying out his orders? Just continue deceiving yourself cos Nigerians are wiser now and we know you and sponsors evil agenda for nigeria, God will not make you guys succeed, Amen.

      • mike

        You can pray all you want but change is inevitable.

        • kudirat

          God is more than you people and he will surely answer our prayers. You don’t believe in prayers but surely prayers works. You might not believe but it works, we can only hope and pray for our leaders, something great will surely happen in nigeria soon, so enemies of 9ja keep off.

  • Me out

    Beloved Brothers, God owns this country and His council will stand, He will give to whom ever He wishes that is in line with His perfect plans foe Nigeria PDP or APC, let the will of God be done.

  • Unique Fidel

    LIARS!!!

  • Elis Davia

    You should show us the evidence that the pastors collected 6 billion naira, you be careful accUsing men of GOD

    • Smith Y

      i am happy that Nigerians are beginning to demand for evidence.

  • tittop dede

    U can see that this Amaechi is a mad man,I beg this guy is going crazy bcos of buhari,why? Is it bcos of oil or position that u want God to strike u dead. Why don’t u give us the name of those pastors? This man is a real mad man. He needs to go and see a doctor or take his drug.

  • Maria

    They collected billions with promise of oil blocks….and shield/protection from extradition for those mega pastors on wanted list in the UK for looting church money. I knew many Nigerian pastors are hardened criminals otherwise, how would you collect money from pauperized and impoverished people in the name of tithes and offerings for God in disguise to use the money to support your extravagant lifestyles? Only hardened wicked people would do that.

    • Smith Y

      Always seek for evidence. Where are the proofs that they collected the said money. ALSO, HOW MANY NIGERIANS HAVE INVESTIGATED ABOUT THE SOURCE OF THESE PASTORS’ WEALTH. I KNOW SOME PASTORS STEAL. BUT FOR ONE OF THEM (OYEDEPO), I KNOW A BIT OF HIS INVESTMENTS – AND AM YET TO SEE CHURCH MONEY IN ANY.

      • Maria

        Liar…You people will go to hell. Tell Oyedepo to fly to UK today if he has not looted the church money there.

  • Elis Davia

    Accusing Pastors will not make APC win, Nigerians know that the truth and they know who to vote. Surely President GEJ will the presidential election

  • Elis Davia

    Between 1983 and 1985,
    Peter Onu of Nigeria was Acting Secretary-General of the OAU. At the 1985
    Summit in Addis Ababa, statesmen like Julius Nyerere, President of Tanzania,
    lobbied for his election as substantive Secretary-General. However, there was a
    major stumbling block to Peter Onu’s candidature: his Head of State, Muhammadu
    Buhari, was campaigning against him

  • richard

    Amechi needs serious help. In my opinion he ought to be in a psychiatric home, as you cannot be abusive to your elders and now to your spiritual leaders and expect a remedy to your condition. His desperation for relevance has not allowed him to apply reasoning in his judgements. The Lord has commanded in the bible that we should touch not HIS annoited and do his prophets no harm. King David had every opportunity to kill Saul and become king but for this commandment. Leave the men of God to God to deal with. We dey watch.

  • tittop dede

    Pls Mr. Amaechi,i know u are a bastard bcos Rotimi should be part of ur name. Ur mother didn’t know ur father bcos he got pregnant with u when she was in secondary school,and don’t forget there was an accident that nearly claimed ur life in the year 1995 and as a result of the accident u got brain fracture. I just imagine the good people of river state voting you into power without testing ur mental capacity and now ur madness has shifted away from presidency into the church. Ur days are number and ur govt is divided,d judgement is right now in ur household

  • Elis Davia

    Amaechi is too desperate which is leading him into falsehood

  • warry

    Amaechi my brother is sick ,nobody should take him seriously. We are trying to solve his problem.

  • Truthometer

    Even among the twelve disciples, there must always be one Judas. In Nigerian case, we have uncountable Judases, masquerading as pastors. Change is coming to Nigeria. Vote for GMB!

  • August January

    Surely you are calling Amaechi names because you’ve not received the whatsapp message being circulated by Pastor Oritsejafor-led CAN authenticating Amaechi’s words. Just like his kinsman, Jonathan, that’s the worst and most corrupt president Nigeria has had, Oritsejafor is the worst and most dubious and corrupt President of CAN since its inception in the 80s. It was the same Oritsejafor’s jet that was loaded with millions of dollars cash which was impounded in South Africa last year, in case you have forgotten.

    • Smith Y

      And how did you vet that it was actually Oritsejafor’s CAN. I can create an E-Mail, Facebook, WhatsApp, etc account and pretend to be whom I am not just for propaganda. What forensic and empirical investigations have you done to vet the info. I can use bulk SMS and send a hate message to Nigerians with the sender GEJ. Why not vet your information before you make decisions and talk. Have you tried to investigate if what GEJ claims he has done are true??? I guess not. Rather, Nigerians jump into unintelligent and uninformed decisions. That is why Nigeria is the way it is. You and I are the cause of Nigeria’s issues – simply because we refuse to be thorough. How can we be thorough; when the average Nigerian student will prefer to cheat rather than study???

      • August January

        Look, I know this man. I have attended CAN meetings with him in Abuja as my state rep I know him. I know the difference between him and his predecessor, John Cardinal Onaiyekan. Pastor Oritsejafor is a dubious character, who’s always ready to do anything for Jonathan because of his friendship with him. It was because of things like this that made the Catholic bloc pulled out of National CAN till he would finish his tenure as the national president

        • Smith Y

          Ok… I can understand your stance point. But dont expect me to believe it without evidence. Anyone can make claims. Especially after last week’s episode…

  • SAM .A

    What we have in Nigeria today are Merchandised Pastors, the so called posterity pastors have indeed commercialized the Name of Jesus Christ, how will you expect man of God to rent out his private Jet to buy guns to kill. They all love money than they love Christ, they take bribe for gift, they rob their congregation every Sunday. They have now invaded politics , to protect their stinking wealth and steal more .
    Oritsajofor , Oyedepo, Enoch Adeboye ,Paul & Wale Adefarasin are all suppose to be NEUTRAL like Onaaiyekan of Catholic , but rather they have all converted their pulpit to political rallies,Redeem Camp to a campaign ground where political support was crafted in the name of Christ.
    It is time to give to Caesar what is Caesar and unto God what is God .The next administration ,should exempt church from tax as usual , all other things, including business & luxuries of this commercial pastors must be taxed.
    Fed./state gov. must stop sponsoring people to Mecca and Jerusalem , it is waste of government money that could be spent on education and infrastructure .
    All these church Merchants or commercial Pastors will be shocked on February 14, when members of their families vote against their political party(PDP) and their congregation will do likewise , because they have been influence by money and not Christ.

    • Smith Y

      Where are your proofs. If you dont have evidence, then please stop ranting… We need intelligent and facts-based discussions, please…

    • ojims

      Oga Sam you get mind point direct accusing finger on God’s anointed? Don’t stand on politicians claim to invite problem for yourself oo. An not saying that the pastors collect bribe or not but let God judge them

    LEST WE FORGET

    These are some of those clamouring for ‘change’:

    Bola Tinubu’s pension:…

    1) Two houses in choice locations in Lagos and Abuja
    2) Six brand new vehicles replaceable every 3 yrs
    3) Salary for life
    4) 300percent of that salary as furniture allowance every two years
    5) Full medicals for him and his family
    6) Security detail

    Rotimi Amaechi’s pension:

    1) Two houses (one in Rivers and the other anywhere he chooses)
    2) Full salary for life
    3) 300percent of that salary as furniture allowance every four years
    4) Three vehicles replaceable every four years
    5) Free medicals
    6) 10percent of salary as house maintenance
    7) Full security detail
    8) 30percent car maintenance, 10percent entertainment, 20percent utilities.

    Bukola Saraki’s pension:

    1) Three cars replaceable every 3yrs
    2) A “well-furnished 5bedroom duplex”
    3) 300percent furniture allowance
    4) Full security detail (8 policemen, 3 DSS operatives one of which must be female)
    5) 30percent for car maintenance, 20percent for utility, 10percent for entertainment and 10percent for house maintenance.
    NB: As a Senator, this ex-gov also draws salary worth millions and a N40m quarterly allowance.

    Sani Yerima’s pension:

    1) Salary for life
    2) Two vehicles replaceable every 4yrs
    3) Two personal staff
    4) Free medicals for the govs and their families
    5) A house and free office
    6) Free telephone
    7) A 30day paid vacation abroad
    NB: This ex-gov too is a serving Senator who recieves outrageous salaries and allowances.

    Even though a couple of other PDP govs (Akpabio) and ex-govs (PDP Chairman Muazu and Odili) have much the same insane pensions, these ones mentioned here are those who promise you ‘change’.

    Every one who has some grey matter, no matter the quality, should ask:

    WHAT TYPE OF CHANGE ARE YOU BRINGING WHEN YOU HAVE CORNERED THE FINANCES OF YOUR PEOPLE FOR YOUR PERSONAL COMFORT?

    What else is corruption?

  • Smith Y

    The prevalence of unintelligence among Nigerians today is alarming. Many youths claim they are unemployed. How many of them are employable??? You see a graduate of Computer Science who cannot code a simple web page… Yes the school has its faults. But these youths spend time on the internet watching music videos and engaging in social media; while I have seen ICT companies born out of YouTube tutorials. Youths make comments and conclusions without seeking empirical research and evidence. Last week really exposed to the international community, the level of unintelligence among the youths (less than 40 years). They coult rant without seeking evidence. Even when they saw evidence, they were still “idiotic” in their folly. WELL, LET ME ANNOUNCE NOW AS SOMEONE SAID… THAT ALL THOSE “SKELEWU YOUTHS OF TODAY, WILL TOMORROW SERVE THE YOUTHS WHO ARE PAYING THE PRICE TODAY. AND WHEN THOSE PAYING THE PRICE TODAY BECOME BILLIONAIRS, THE SKELEWU YOUTHS OF TODAY WILL BEGIN TO ACCUSE THEM OF ALL SORTS. Please be responsible…

I’m sure of what I’m saying. I even feel bad that I’m saying this, but that’s the truth; Pastor Oritsejafor has destroyed the image of CAN

        • kudirat

          You’re a vulture in Christianity, what do you know about CAN? This is what I pray about always, God should expose all the people that are planning to cause trouble in nigeria with evil claims. In Islam, we don’t talk bad about our religion or representatives but christians I wonder why you do so? Well repent before God will strike you.

    • kudirat

      You’re a betrayal just like Judas, very soon you will go and hang yourself for attacking the church. One thing I will advice you is that you don’t fight, accuse or blackmail those in authority of the church or mosques. You are a bad person to even talk bad about any man of God, are you the person that anointed him or called him to serve him? So what right do you have to talk or question him, may God forgive you if you repent.

      • August January

        Where were you when his private jet was impounded with millions of dollars cash of Nigeria’s money in South Africa last year? Why do you hide from the truth? If he was truly called by God, then his anointing is fast drying up, and he would need to go back to the Lord repentant just like Peter did when he denied the Lord. That’s the truth, take it or leave it

        • kudirat

          It is left for God to decide not you, that is why men are not God. God that calls knows who is serving him and doesn’t need anybody to fight for him. Yours is to pray for people in authority for God to intervene not to say evil things about them. May God forgive us all.

      • TruthIsBetter

        Betrayal watin? That a person speaks out against wrong that person is suddenly betraying? And who has the person betrayed? Is there an agenda that you all know that others do not know? If there is please tell us so that people will stop betray

        • kudirat

          What mind is he speaking? Falsely accusing men of God of corruption is that speaking of mind? If it was in the old days, your mouth and those of the people that support this evil including your sponsors will be consumed with fire for touching his anointed ones. May God have mercy on you people and my advice is for you people to repent.

          • TruthIsBetter

            I asked, what betrayal? If it was in the old days those men of God would have died immediately, remember that too

          • kudirat

            You’re speaking evil just like your sponsors but you people have gotten it wrong this time, for attacking the anointed of God. You think it is Jonathan you’re attacking abi? Well Amaechi thinks after fighting his brother and saying all the rubbish his saying, that the people who are pushing him will welcome with open hands, he should be wise and remember that a visitor will not call you a brother for fighting your siblings, he will only know you can’t be trusted.

    • TruthIsBetter

      I hope Amaechi has been vindicated by pastor Adeboye? This is the same this all of you said when Amaechi said that there were bo federal projects in Rivers State, the same GEJ came to Port Harcourt and confirmed it.

  • davids

    My greatest worry is that some ‘pastors’ are only interested in a ‘christian’ becoming a political leader and not concern about how he runs the government. Doing things rightly exalts a nation but doing things wrongly must bring it down independent of the leader’s religious faith

  • Olawale Bello

    The Pastors don’t suffer as the congregations do. They have regular light, they build schools from the members contribution. They have jets and other luxuries. Why would they not want Jonathan to continue? Masses, have to take their destinies on their hands. Let the Pastors collect $6b, I’m not bothered. My PVC is my weapon
