Patience Jonathan angry with me because I refused to share Rivers money with her — Amaechi

When the going was good

The Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Amaechi, has provided rare details of what he said was the actual reason behind his long-drawn row with First Lady, Patience Jonathan, saying Mrs. Jonathan had asked that state funds be corruptly shared with her.

Speaking Saturday, Mr. Amaechi said Mrs. Jonathan, an indigene of the state, became angry with him after he turned down the dubious demand.

The governor spoke in Port Harcourt at the joint graduation of the students of University of Ibadan and pioneer graduates of Ignatius Ajuru University of Education.

Recounting his role in stopping militancy in the state, the governor said the First Lady deliberately ensured militants, who had fled the state to Lagos, Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire, returned to fight him.

“I refused to give them money in Abuja because if I do that, I won’t be able to carry out any development project or finish the road from Rumuolumeni to Rumuepirikom.

“The quarrel between me and the wife of the President is because she said I should bring your money, Rivers people money and share with her,” he explained.

Mr. Amaechi called on the people of the state as well as members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to ensure the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, does not manipulate and rig the 2015 general elections.

Mr. Amaechi said if the PDP was allowed to rig the election and President Goodluck Jonathan, a member of the party, was voted back into office in 2015, poverty and underdevelopment would ruin the state.

“Now that you are graduates, you are now eligible voters that can use your voters’ card to change society,” he said.

“Ask yourselves 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,” he said.

The governor alleged that Mr. Jonathan, who is from the South-South zone to which Rivers State belongs, had taken the state’s oil well from Soku to his (Jonathan) home state, Bayelsa State.

He also said 41 oil wells in Etche Local Council of the state was given to Abia State.

He asked, “Is the President or his wife from Abia State? Why do they want us to suffer? If President Jonathan comes back to power in 2015, Rivers State economy will crash.”

Mr. Amaechi lamented the consistent shortfall in oil revenue and the negative impact it had created to frustrate innocent Nigerians and urged the graduates to question the inconsistencies of the federal government in revenue sharing between it and the states.

“Graduates like you have the opportunity to ask the federal government to explain what they are doing with our money,” Mr. Amaechi advised.

“Since September this year, the federal government has not been able to pay any state from the federal allocation. They said they don’t have money. This is the first time that our president is emerging as the 6th richest person in Africa.”

He tasked the graduates to register as eligible voters ahead of the general elections.

Mr. Amaechi also blamed the failure of the Rumuolumeni Road construction project on the immediate past minister of state for education, Nyesom Wike, whom he described as incompetent.

He said the state government awarded N1.5 billion for the construction of internal roads in Rumulumeni and had already given the indigenous contractor, who is also from the area, N700 million.

“We said Rivers money for Rivers people because they don’t have capital. This man took the contract and gave it to a man who now wants to be governor.

“This man that is being backed by Mrs. Jonathan gave N250 million to the indigenous contractor and disappeared with N450 million without constructing the road. And this is the man who wants to be governor, with billboards screaming the concept of ‘New Vision’.

“What kind of vision is that for a thief? They have been thieves for too long so it cannot be new vision. The only thing that is new is that he has industrialized stealing. The former minister of state for education in a radio interview said, he ‘shedded tears’. Everyone knows there’s no word like that.”

Mrs. Jonathan’s media assistant, Ayo Adewuyi, could not be reached to respond to Mrs. Jonathan’s allegations. His mobile telephone is switched off the several times PREMIUM TIMES called.

    Nigeria, under Dumbo, is a crime scene (cr. Dare).

    Let all political office holders declare their assets publicly and the President should lead the way in doing that as Yaradua did in 2007.

    • kamal Kamoru

      Have you gone back to ask from the CCB what he (Yaradua) was worth after his demise??
      GEJ was ‘forced’ to declare publicly with Yaradua in 2007. Did you Mr tundemess go to the CCB to find out what he declared in 2011??
      Did u?? You are only interested in cosmetics Mr man.
      Stop chasing shadows Mr MESS.

      • tundemash

        GEJ was forced ? So they put a gun to his head? How was he forced or did you mean he wasn’t principled enough to stand his ground ? I can see how TAN and PDP are also now “forcing” him to contest again now. We know and you confirmed Dumbo is “d@ft” and always forced to do anything.

        SERAP had requested for the asset declaration form and CCB has been dilly-dallying just to protect Dumbo.
        And why do you have issues with ALL POLITICAL OFfICE HOLDER DECLARING THEIR ASSETS PUBLICLY? IS ANYONE GOING O LOSE HIS LIFE BY THIS OR WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM WITH THAT ?

        We had Daniel Kanu his band for Abacha and we had Abimbola Davies, Nzeribe with ABN for IBB. You and TAN are just following same pattern. No surprise in here. But just as your predecessors faded away, so shall you fade away ! Just as Nigeria is ebola free so shal it be ebele free soon !

        Nigeria, under Dumbo, is a crime scene (cr. Dare)

        • kamal Kamoru

          Mehn! TundeMESS, you need to grow up. If you lack maturity at this age, it is likely you will remain this way for life.
          By ‘forced’, I meant NOTHING Would have made GEJ declare openly of his own free will! He ws ‘forced’ because his boss at the time Yaradua did, so be had no choice. This alone should tell you I am no fan of his. But this is where your lack of maturity comes in: the moment anyone disapproves of any of yur ‘heroes’ like Amaechi here, you go gaga! Anyone who takes a critical look at any of yur APC ‘messiah’ is a TAN member! How daft can you be???
          Sad thing is you seem very very ignorant of the laws in this country. I remember several people you used to abuse including myself on Sahara wen we struggled in vain to explain to you that ‘public declaration’ was not required by law and thus not mandatory. All it took ws for Sahara to say GEJ refused to declare and you joined the bandwagon abusing and cursing. Indeed I believe any moral person might declare publicly, but u and I know our leaders are not! So why flog a dead horse?
          My advice to you Mr MESS is that you should be circumspect when reading and replying comments. That way, you wont keep showcasing your dumbness for the whole world to see!

          • tundemash

            KaMor0n.. how do u know my age that made you claim “If you lack maturity at this age, it is likely you will remain this way for life.”

            You are the one being stup1d here. Name me the law which Yaradua and Dumbo broke in 2007 when they declared their assets publicly? And you asking me did Yaradua declare his assets in 2011 just shows your stup1dity as Yaradua was dead. Yaradua was not pushed to declar his assets publicly in 2007 so what makes you think he wouldn’t have done same in 2011 ?
            Obama was not, by law, required to show his birth certificate publicly but he did so when challenged; it was to remove a moral burden.

            And why do you have a problem with my statement “Let all political office holders declare their assets publicly” ???????? Could you be affected by this ? Could you be one of the rogues soiling their hands in the cookie jar ?

          • kamal Kamoru

            Mehn, Mr MESS, really u need to calm down. Why are you so violent?? Your violent nature makes you appear very phooooolish!!!
            WHERE DID I ASK YOU IF YARADUA DECLARED HIS ASSETS IN 2011??
            This was what I wrote numbskull:
            “GEJ was forced to declare publicly with Yaradua in 2007. Did you Mr tundemess go to the CCB to find out what he declared in 2011??”

            I WAS ASKING ABOUT GEJ NOT YARADUA Mr MESS!!!
            How DAFT A man be???????
            Hahahahahaha!
            Keep rambling around issues you have no understanding of. It was my error getting drawn into an argument with a lowlife like you.
            Your inability to comprehend my quesn above says an awful lot about your IQ!!

          • tundemash

            Fraudulent id10t… how do we address you? is it as Ed.. bassey or Proudly NigerDeltan ? Does your changing tags, depending on the post you want to respond to, not show what stuff you are made of?

            And what makes me violent ? Responding to you ? is that what makes me violent ?

            Rambling does not translate to fact.

            And why do you have a problem with my statement “Let all political office holders declare their assets publicly” ???????? Could you be affected by this ? Could you be one of the rogues soiling their hands in the cookie jar using the anonymity of the internet to suppress anything that would uncover your shady deals ?

            Obama was not, by law, required to show his birth certificate publicly but he did so when challenged; it was to remove a moral burden.

            You hypocrite claim I call everyone oppose to my view a TAN member and yet you could call Amaechi a Judas Iscariot ? For betraying who ? What would you call Dumbo who not only honoured Abacha but also honored Justice Auta, both of whom ensured Saro Wiwa was killed.

            Nigeria, under Dumbo, is a crime scene (cr. Dare)

          • kamal Kamoru

            Show me where I called Amaechi judas iscariot!
            I challenge you to do so!
            If u can’t agree you are not just a daft liar, BUT YOU ARE STARK RAVING MAD!!!
            Show me! Abi u dey hallucinate again??????
            I dey LaffooooO!! Madness!!!

          • tundemash

            This is the page …… Mr. FRAUD. And shortly after , you changed the tag names to PROUDLY NIGERIAN and Ed… Bassey. Your dumbo is a fraud so likes begets like.

          • Kohwo Enaohwo

            Mumu, still do get it. Na wa 4 ignorance. Please you guys leave this man to wallow in his stench.

      • Jika

        You tell us how much was Yar’adua worth before and after his demise.You may also tell us how much our current President is worth since,it is apparent from your post that you went to CCB to find out.Thank you in advance sir.

        • kamal Kamoru

          It is you and your likes screaming about ‘open’ declaration that should go find out.
          You have unwittingly agreed with the point I was trying to make, which is that how many Nigerians have tried going back to find out what Late Yaradua ws worth and what GEJ declared in 2011 as compared with what he declared openly in 2007??
          I don’t believe in chasing shadows. The so called open declaration will not stop amassing of wealth by our leaders through proxies..and even their wives. Same way it did not stop Turai Yaradua from grabbing and grabbing!
          Can you take a man to the code of conduct Tribunal for non public declaration??
          NO SIR!
          So why don’t we hold the so called leaders accountable in areas clearly spelt out in the constitution and law as of the land???

          • Jika

            I hear you sir.What then can one make of a public officer who said ‘I don’t give a damn’ when he was challenged as to why he didn’t declare his assets as required by the laws?Are we to expect transparency and equity from such a fellow when it comes to issues of governance?I am a layman and,as such I wouldn’t know what the law says are my rights or otherwise if any public officer who oversees my affairs in government refuses to declare his/her assets.To that extent,I can’t say wether I can or can’t take such a fellow to court.Thank you sir.

          • kamal Kamoru

            My brother, to tell u the truth, I never for one moment expected transparency and equity from the GEJ led regime. Matter of fact, I supported a Buhari in 2007, cos the way PDP was/is structured in don’t see much good coming out of that party.
            However, if I may correct you, GEJ said ‘he didn’t give a damn’ when he was asked about public declaration and not declaration. The law requires assets to be declared with the code of conduct bureau. I can assure you GEJ must have declared with the CCB when he was asked that question.
            While it will be good to see him declare publicly, no one can take him to the Tribunal for not doing so. It’s as simple as tbat.

          • Jika

            Thanks for your response.I am educated.May God continue to protect us from us.God bless.

          • kamal Kamoru

            God bless you too Jika.
            I love your civility.
            Nigeria will be a better place with reasonable people like u around.
            Remain blessed.

      • Tonnero

        Wait, am I to understand that you do not like our elected leaders to openly declare their assets before and after they leave office? It is a bit disingenuous to be asking Yar’Adua to declare his assets from the grave, don’t you think?

        • kamal Kamoru

          Was referring to GEJ declaring in 2011, not Yaradua. Read it again.
          I am all for public declaration. But truth is, no one can be taken to the code of conduct Tribunal for not declaring publicly. So if GEJ says he won’t, why not move on and vote him out instead of trying to force a horse to drink???
          How Governors, PDP and APC have declared openly?? If the PDP governors say they won’t since their Oga @d’top didn’t do his, WHAT STOPS THE HOY APC GOVERNORS FROM DOING THEIRS?????

          • tundemash

            Stop contradicting yourself ….. this was my statement that got you ranting.

            “Let all political office holders declare their assets publicly and the President should lead the way in doing that as Yaradua did in 2007.”

            Are APC gov excluded from ALL political office holders ? Should the President not lead the way?

    “Ah! Ahhhhh! Is he ok?? Who is this man?? Is he running mad????”

    Those were the words of my aged grand mum who visited me recently from Naija as we watched Amaechi on Tv dancing a strange jujumatic dance at his program today.

    I’m sorry but no decent civilized person will be impressed by the kind of childish things that come out of this man’s mouth. He is damn too petty. How can a governor keep talking loosely like this?? This same man told is sometime back that his disagreement with patience started over a planned demolition of some place in rivers.
    This man can only deceive riff raffs like himself. Was Wike not his right hand man before HE(Amaechi) nominated him for the ministerial position?? Didn’t he know his character??
    These are the kind of people they say will bring about change in Nigeria??
    RUUUUUUBISH!!!!!

  • Enough_is_Enough

    Governor Amaechi must tell us what he has done to the contractor who collected the N700million ……. Amaechi must also tell us if a Performance Bond was issued before the disbursement of the N700million.

    If indeed a Performance Bond was issued before the disbursement of the N700million …… what has Governor Amaechi done to recover the N700million.

    Amaechi must speak or keep his rotten mouth shut forever !!!

    • Abdul

      He can only deceive the gullible who are blinded by their party affiliations.
      I weep when Nigerians say people like Amaechi are agents of change.
      It just shows Nigerians are not truly ready for a change themselves.
      Rogues in PDP..Rogues in APC.
      Rogues in PDP decamp to APC and become instant heroes and saints?

        Why did you fail to balance your opinions?

        Just stating one part of the truth and hiding the other makes no better than a liar.

  • Truthometer

    Madam Umblelah is as crookish as her Dumbo husband.

  • Frank Bassey

    Amaechi must be waking up from a bad dream — he finds new reasons for quarrelling with GEJ or his wife. Is there nothing else to do or talk about. A popular man needs not go into character assassination against others, except he is not sure of himself. This is very annoying. A man who won an election he never conducted ought to be grateful. He should move ahead and contest for the Senate – to test his continued popularity.

    • Wähala

      Address Suko and Etche oil wells he raised, were they not in Rivers before Dumbo stole them? The East-West Road nko… has it been completed after how much has been pumped into it? Even the Devil can speak truth, the way to deal with him is accept the message and discard the messenger. Dumbo’s first signature as President was the heist of OPL 245, aka Malabu… since then, we’ve crossed $20bn and money laundering in South Africa. As I type, five countries are investigating Dr. Dumbo’s shady activities and you’re there insulting a man who has credibly run a State while you haven’t even been elected Class Prefect as proof of your popularity. Get drunk!

      • Frank Bassey

        I am not sure you read the story that generated my comment; or are you imputing what is in your mind? Did you read Amaechi’s recent comment? Na wah for people of Niger.

  • Wähala

    Fact: Soku was ceded to Bayelsa State shortly after Dumbo became president. The disputed wells are being contested in court and the Judge ordered accruing funds deposited in an escrow account. But Dumbo has been withdrawing the money illegally in flagrant violation of that court order. Fact: Etche oil wells was ceded to Abia State and into the private hands of Dumbo’s goons Gen. Ihejirika, Gen. Ike Nwachukwu, Gov. Orji Kalu et al. That heist is also being legally contested yet, Abia has been reaping where they did not sow. Fact: The East-West Road should have been finished longer than now but former ND Minister, Orubebe, another goon of Dumbo’s pocketed the money meant for the project, akin to Doyin Okupe pocketing road construction money from Benue and Imo States. Today, along with Hilaru Mohammed, Okupe is a mouthpiece for this corrupt administration. These are the facts… and facts can’t be argued regardless who’s asserting them. Gov. Amaechi has stated facts, no sense abusing him, impeach his claims on points not or zip-up! Mama Sisi died in a car crash along the E-W Rd. and that was when Amaechi railed at the Federal Govt. to fix that road or allow regional Governors finish the project… who has forgotten so soon?

    • Gideon Orkar

      Have you been on the East West road lately? I have been and there is no iota of truth in what you are saying. Let’s argue with facts. This govt must be commended for the great work done so far. Over 75% of the 300+ km road completed and let’s nt forget they started from ground zero

      • Wähala

        I was there last June precisely and over 75% was not done. Whatever has been achieved thus far certainly does not justify how much has been spent thus far… and it was bcos Amaechi threatened to mobilize regional governors to finish the job instead of waiting on Dumbo. Right?

        • Tonnero

          And I was there over the wallah break. True, parts of the road are in passable shape. However, it should not take eight years for that road to be fixed. GEJ and his troops only took it seriously after Amaechi yabbed then and the people of the Delta told Jonathan not to ask for their votes if he does not complete the road.even then, the Bayelsa and Rivers end of the road is still a complete disaster. When it rains, it can take you 5-6 hours to get to Warri from Port Harcourt!

          • Wähala

            Shiooo! And someone just told me 75% of that road has been done… where else is passable if the short hop from Piltakwa to Waffi is impenetrable after a drizzle?

          • Gideon Orkar

            You wrote …Fact: The East-West Road should have been finished longer than now but former ND Minister, Orubebe, another goon of Dumbo’s pocketed the money meant for the project, akin to Doyin Okupe pocketing road construction money from Benue and Imo States without even one meter of asphalt poured in either state

            You are lying if you say you have been on the road last June and 75 % of the road has not been completed. Pls tell me which part did you travel? You said not one meter of asphalt has been poured and you now suggest it is not up to 75% which one is it? You are tying yourself in lies. Over 30 bridges and 300 culverts have been constructed on this road. We know how bad that road was and what it is now. Lies won’t change the facts on the ground.

          • Wähala

            No, No! You read me standing on your head. I meant Doyin Okupe collected contract money without delivery… just as you highlighted. Dr. Doyin, D-o-y-i-n… obese O-k-u-p-e swindled billions from Benue ati Imo States without one inch of asphalt poured on any roads. Doyin Okupe is an inter-state scam artiste. Back to East-West Road… you will be telling the truth if that road is ready for use, how do you justify not being able to go from Pitakwa to Waffi yet, claim 75% completion? Truly, thinking is not for everyone… especially those who can’t understand what’s written in black-n-white. Give up!

          • Gideon Orkar

            I can see you are now in full retreat but I will still keep applying pressure. You wrote …

            Fact: The East-West Road should have been finished longer than now but former ND Minister, Orubebe, another goon of Dumbo’s pocketed the money meant for the project Pocketed the money. You then likened him to a man you claimed also pocked money without doing anything. What exactly are you arguing about? Be a man and own up.

            And pls can you educate us by telling us how much this road should cost and how much has been expended? Pls note OBJ did not produce any design or any feasibility and only set aside N200m. Do you regard that as the right sum? Please educate us and I promise I won’t stand on my head to read your answer

          • Wähala

            I’ve apologized when I slip or someone I value takes umbrage… but, I never back down!
            I’m not claiming anything, it’s on record (at the EFCC) that Doyin Okupe was investigated and charged with pocketing road contract money he never delivered on. If you were the President of Nigeria and from the South-South, even gulping ogogoro in gallons since 5yrs should not stop you from finishing the most viable road linking five States in your region and tremendously boosting trade and commerce. That is what I meant by, “The East-West Road should have been finished longer than now”. Amaechi’s ghost contractor, Nysom Wike, Orubebe and Doyin Okupe all have one thing in common… they got paid for doing nothing! How many more pieces do I have to break it down for you? Quite frankly, I don’t believe in watering stones… I’m tired of thinking for you!

          • Gideon Orkar

            If Orubebe pocketed the money meant for the project which money have they used to build what is on ground? This is not watering stones, it is simple English. It is not my fault that you cannot articulate yourself.

            Also I have asked you to tell us how much this project should cost, and how much has been expended. You have not provided any answer. You have no facts to back your wild allegations. Substantiate your claims with facts for a change.

            What on God’s earth do I have to do with Bishop or Ahiara? I think you are out of your mind.

          • Wähala

            Go read all about it on Vanguard…
            I’m certainly in one piece. It’s you who has gone mad replying your own comments… why not edit?

          • Otile

            It is useless for me to be wasting my time responding to a man who has
            gone totally insane. What the hell are you trying to say…Ahiara,
            Bishop, Mbaise, replying to own comments? What incoherent insane
            babbling is this? It about time I ignore you totally in this st*pid
            exchange.

          • Wähala

            ‘wild and uncontrollable’.

            You got it right there bro.
            My error engaging TundeMESS in convo. Thot he had become more civil and matured since his days at Sahara. Unfortunately, old habits die hard. His ego problem makes him see every discourse as one which he must prove ‘I am right you are wrong’!
            If indeed we want that country to get better, it should be all about rubbing minds.
            Stay Blessed.

          • Otile

            You cannot rub minds with egomaniacs who think they know more than God.

          • Wähala

            Nnanna,
            you’re robbing minds with yourself, sure you’re ok… Alles klar?
            Why are you replying yourself? See what I mean, that guy @tundemash demolished is you!

          • Otile

            My friend, chill out. You’re losing it.

          • tundemash

            Now you got burnt and shot down , next time pick your fight carefully and do not try to be fraudulent !

      • tundemash

        u were “kamal Kamoru” when this was posted few mins ago and now changed to Ed.. Bassey. You are a fraud.

        • kamal Kamoru

          TundeMESS, STOP SHOWCASING YOUR MADNESS HERE OO!
          IT MUST BE THE LOAD ON THE SITE!!
          ARE YOU THIS DAFT?? GEEEEEZ?$#/?!!
          I DEY LAFFOOOOO!!!

          • tundemash

            Load on the site ? But before i uploaded the proof , you claimed it was someone else , now it is “load on the site”. You ought to have blamed it on APC or Amaechi .
            Like @wahala said, you are a daft fraud.
            Even with truth staring at you, you can’t be a man and own up. F00l !

          • kamal Kamoru

            Can’t you see the issue with the names has been sorted out??
            TundeMESS, if you claim not to know this happens every now and then, YOU ARE A LIAR! You lack civility and truth. I don’t waste my time with Liars. If you are not decent enough to admit it was a mix up of names, u are the last person I should be conversing with.
            Remain a liar if that’s what makes you sleep well at night.

          • tundemash

            Shamless f00l, you still get mouth to talk. It was only you the “load on the site” affected ? Shameless idi0t . Please crawl back into the hole you came from.
            You are not even man enough to own up when caught pants down. One more e-rat shot down!

          • Sheyi

            Mr Tunde, i have seen you and that guy go back and forth on this issue. He is probably right. The same thing has also happened to me severally. It’s a non issue really.

          • tundemash

            That is alright. He challenged me and I have posted exactly what I saw. I leave him to deal with his conscience. Just as you said it has happened to you, we have also seen several of them post with different aliases just to stoke up ethnic and religious sentiments.

          • Sheyi

            He asked you to answer a prayer, have you?
            If you are not bold enough to answer while he is, that seems to tell us something.
            I have personally been affected by that sort of thing. I have even made a reply to someone and initially it ends up to someone else.
            Be matured dude.

          • tundemash

            Answer what prayer? from someone who could as well been sworn to an oath at the Amnesty Village? Prayer ko, prayer ni! Whatever it seems to tell you doesn’t move a muscle with me. If i wasn’t able to present a proof as he challenged me then i could be bothered. Meanwhile all I heard from you was that it had happened to you but ofcourse with no proof as I did.

          • Wähala

            You would be stoopid to say ‘Amen’ to pastor kamal’s prayer… ‘Kamal’ is not a Christian name so, that settles it. Intellectual discourse is about verifiable proof which you have reproduced in his earlier comment from which I quoted, don’t mind them. @Sheyi, @Ifebuchi, @DomPatriot etc, are e-rats on crumbs… to be abused & discarded. @Ifebuche is now @MrFresh. Thugs on Amnesty handouts…

          • tundemash

            Trust I don’t fall for such nonsense. Did Gbenga Daniel not build a church and yet was swearing his boy to an oath at the shrine ? What about Chris Ngige ?

            I am only waiting for the fake “prayer” warriors to quote me the passage in the bible where “saying amen to prayer” invalidates the truth.

          • Bala Mayaki

            Tundemash, this sort of thing happens all the time especially for the first few people posting. Stop being such a disagreeable fellow. It doesn’t speak well of your character and personality.
            Just passing by, but that’s the truth. The guy even went on to say a prayer to confirm his protest. You seem afraid to answer. So why not give him the benefit doubt? You win no laurel here for being blindly argumentative sir.

  • Proudly NigerDeltan

    This Judas Iscariot of Port Harcout will never cease to amuse me…after my Dear Dame tactically prevented him from getting too close, he turns around to frame up nonsense. How can you be holding Firstest Lady like that? Nonsense!

    Judas Iscariot is angry at alleged oil wells ceded to Abia state but is at peace with over 97% of the oil blocks and licenses in present day Rivers being in the hands of Northern peoples. Shame dey catch me for Judas no be small. It was a noble comrade Senator called Senator Enang who revealed this anomaly last year. What did Judas do or say about it? He was busy flying up & down in that his Jet with the Northern Governors wasting Rivers state money.

    When he was booed at an occasion, he attempted to save his face by admitting that he was a thief but that he and other thieving Govs wud continue to steal until stoned to death. He said it on live TV and we all saw it. Now, a self proclaimed thief turns around to accuse other people. If he was interested in developing Rivers, why did he buy a bombardier Jet worth Billions of Dollars? Wouldn’t that money have constructed some roads in Rumuo-this and Rumue-that? Nonsense!

    While we are looking for professional stone throwers, we know whatever happens, it shall be to Judas Iscariot of PH as it was to Judas Iscariot of Judea. Nonsense!

    • tundemash

      u were “kamal Kamoru” when this was posted few mins ago and now changed to “Proudly NigerDeltan”. You are a fraud. Tim1d id10t !

      • Wähala

        Don’t mind the clown. Soon he will change to @Bayo.

      • Tonnero

        These are the guys paid by Reno Omokri to use different avatars to post positive comments for GEJ and his supporters and negative comments for whoever disagrees with them. It is their attempt to manipulate public opinion the same way as they have manipulated everything else.

      • kamal Kamoru

        See why I said you should calm down???
        It’s obviously the ‘loading’ on the site!
        SHAME ON YOU ACCUSING ME ABOVE FOR CALLING AMAECHI JUDAS WHILE IT WAS SOMEONE ELSE!
        YOU ARE PATHETIC! KEEP DISGRACING YOURSELF!
        I still dey LaffooooO!

        • tundemash

          You are a FRAUD … it was not someone else and i haven’t closed the page, see it below here …. shamelsss Id1ot ! Who is the disgrace now ?

          • kamal Kamoru

            OK. I only have one way of resolving such:

            If ‘i’ Kamal changed the avatar to ‘proudly nigerian’, then may the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob whom I serve punish me.

            BUT IF ‘i’ Kamal did not change my avatar, THEN MAY THE ONE AND TRUE LIVING GOD PUNISH TUNDEMASH FOR ACCUSING ME FALSELY!

            Pls say Amen/Ameen to this tundemess, and let’s leave it at this.
            I await your Amen.

          • tundemash

            F00l, you haven’t crawled back to the shit-hole you came from ?
            You already have a hopeless life. It can’t get worse than this.
            You asked me for a proof and i gave it. Even the devil quoted the bible and claimed he was serving God so save those your rants till you get back to your Amnesty Village Church.
            I am only surprised you have only blamed this on the “load on the site” that affected you alone and not blamed APC or Amaechi for your woes.

          • kamal Kamoru

            Mr MESS, i saw the pic u posted and yes, it showed my name initially, but it happens every day on this site.
            However, since we could not arrive at a ‘truce’, I left a little prayer for you my friend.

            SAY AMEN TO IT SIR!

            *one thing about Liars is they never believe anyone else is capable of telling the truth. I have told u I am not those guys. A gentleman would have said he saw a different name and that would have been it. You are too petty Mr MESS. Work on yur ego too. Your wife must’ve told you that severally no doubt.

          • Tayo

            Oga tunde, looks like you have reached the end of the road. The guy has given you a challenge. This back and forth with that guy has been interesting. We want to see a logical conclusion. Or are you scared to answer the prayer? Why hiding behind all the grammar? A simple Amen will do won’t it?

          • Wähala

            How is saying ‘Amen’ a “logical conclusion” here? Would you say ‘Amen’ To a prayer by a crook and money-laundering pastor Oritsejafor? @tundemash published the comment in question and that’s the intelligent rebuttal necessary for a logical conclusion… not some yeye prayer by a criminal whose religion and sanctity cannot be verified over the internet. Does swearing in the name of God or your mother put paid to intellectual dialogues? Truly, some people should be banned from thinking…
            you qualify!

          • tundemash

            Oga Tayo …. looks like some people have used religion to f00l you. Since when has prayer invalidate a fact ? I have provided a proof of his changing handle…. let him provide proof he didn’t do it .

          • MrFesh

            Mr Mess take up the challenge. If you must accuse a fella you must be man enough to offer proof. Say Amen or keep quiet forever.

          • kamal Kamoru

            That’s my point bros. He has no shame. While he CANT answer for obvious reasons, he is not even decent enough to keep his stale breaths to himself.
            A despicable fellow if ever there was one. He deserves sympathy not condemnation.

          • tundemash

            Clown …. no surprise you are here for your fellow e-rat. I pasted the proof.

          • Wähala

            Didn’t read the proof that cornered your fellow e-rat into becoming a prayer warrior ba? How does saying ‘Amen’ to a criminal’s prayer decide a case? Few weeks ago you, @MrFresh, used to post comments here as @Ifebuchi… #Kay Soyemi challenged you on it but you did not provide any reasons for the handle change. E-rats like you are sickening and sour-up national discourse with paranoid distractions paid for in crumbs. That phool Kamal, Tawandah, Deri, Akpos1 etc, are the problem… you bring out the worst in all of us. Kapisch?

          • tundemash

            Mr. E-rat …. no surprise you are here to provide support for your cornered fellow e-rat. Since when has prayer invalidate a fact ? I have provided a proof of his changing handle…. let him provide proof he didn’t do it .

          • Mosaku 147

            I wonder why tundemash can’t say amen to the prayer of a sinner knowing it’s an abomination unto The Lord. Kamal,your rubbish prayer na empty threat to make tundemash back off but e no fit catch anybody because you yourself na lier.

          • kamal Kamoru

            Hahaha! TundeMESS minion!
            I even challenged him to say his own and I will answer since he is ‘righteous’ and I’m a ‘sinner’!
            Cowards! Blab and run hypocrites!!

          • Wähala

            “Thou Shall Not Use the Name of Thy God in Vain”…he published your comment, your answer is a useless prayer-bait. I can deduct you have no rebuttal that’s why you’ve become a “prayer-warrior”. Saying ‘Amen’ does not erase what you’ve posted here with several handles, contradicting yourself in some. @Onike24 noticed your antics days before #tundemash picked you apart because of it. She’s a lawyer and well researched in behavioral sciences. We are not all phools around here… give-up!

          • tundemash

            E-rats usual result to ethnicity and religion when cornered. . Since when has “prayer” invalidate a fact ? I have provided a proof of your changing handle….provide proof you didn’t do it .

        • Wähala

          @Ekene aka, kamal Kamoru 24 minutes ago

          “Mehn, Mr MESS, really u need to calm down. Why are you so violent?? Your violent nature makes you appear very phooooolish!!!”

          You posted the above under a different name… that is what @tundemash means when he calls you a “fraud”. Your stupidity is amazing. You’re on Reno Omokri’s crumbs list, give up… lies are lies even if made to look real. You are not for real. Ode buruku, omo ita… ol’oti, oloja!

          • tundemash

            @wahala.

            he actually posted a post calling Amaechi the Judas Iscariot of PH (as kamal Kamoru) and he later changed the avatar on that post to Proudly Nigerian which he’s denying now. I have pasted that post as Kamal kamoru below and guess what ? The fraud blamed it on the “load on the site” .

          • Henry

            Tundemash, several of us are watching here o.
            Say amen to that guys prayer or apologize to him. You stuck your neck out. Too late to turn back now. Abi u dey fear?

          • RRL

            Clown …. E-rats usual result to ethnicity and religion when cornered. . Since when has “prayer” become a proof of a fact ? I have provided a proof of your fellow e-rat changing handle….encourage him to provide bare fact he didn’t do it .

            TELL TUNDEMESS TO ANSWER THE PRAYER!

            OR SINCE HE IS SO SCARED, LET HIM SAY HIS OWN PRAYER, I WILL ANSWER AMEN TO IT.

            No bullsh*tting..just tell yur friend to answer!

    • Screw-em

      Give up Deri aka redeem, you have once again been caught with your fly wide open…..lol

  • JESUS.CHRIST.IS.BASTARD

    And Oopsss…….!I forgot to mention the cannibalism taught in the Holy Bible. All those killing, burning and looting was not enough for the God of Bible to satisfy. He needed the Opponents to be roast-eaten by the Christians.

    John 6:52-53“52 The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” 53 So Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.”

    John 6:60:64“60 When many of his disciples heard it, they said, “This teaching is difficult; who can accept it?” 61 But Jesus, being aware that his disciples were complaining about it, said to them, “Does this offend you? 62 Then what if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? 63 It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh is useless. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. 64 But among you there are some who do not believe.”

    We recently were surprised to hear the news from Josh, Nigeria, that the Christians after killing Muslims are roast-eating their flesh. So it’s clear to all of us now the basic reason behind there inhumane act was nothing but these verses of Bible, the so called book of God.

    AND AFTER ALL THIS SOME CHRISTIANS AND JEWS STILL HAVE THE AUDACITY TO CONDEMN ISLAM FOR VIOLENCE…..!

  • Tonnero

    No surprises here except for those in extreme denial. Mrs. Jonathan already had a fat file with the EFCC under Nuhu Ribadu. Stealing is in the DNA of some people. They just cannot stop themselves even when they know they are being watched. GEJ and his merry band of thieves are determined to continue the mindless looting beyond 2015 no matter what it takes. We are watching how it will all end. I personally do not think it will end well for him. As for me and my family, we have taken some precautions.

  • Garden-City Boy

    In other words, Amaechi Rotimi has been doing with money belonging to Rivers State is share it. It is only just that he does not share it with Patience. Did this nama head governor really mean to do this much train-wreck to his already bad probity record? All Rotimi Amaechi just accomplished is to give a clean bill to the First Lady, while admitting to his pathetic performance and failed policies as governor. This is all because the incumbent state Governor shared public money with his thieving cronies. Isn’t it shameful and offensive for a governeor to employ the word “SHARE” to describe the embezzlement of public funds?
    EFCC over to you; don’t tell us you are all deaf. An open confession is more than enough evidence; this is not a case to be allowed to slide like the case of some retard, Jeremaih Useni, who boasted to the press that he indeed murdered Nigeria’s first Military Head of State, Gen. J.T.U. Aguiyi-Irronsi. Up until now, this man has not been charged for the crime of murder he committed, but allowed to walk. Jeremiah Useni’s crime set the tone for the Igbo pogrom when hordes of barbaric awusas murdered over 50,000 innocent Igbo civilians. The subsequent civil war waged against the Igbo people by Nigeria took over 3 million lives. Boko Haram menace is something is easily traceable to the atrocious conduct of an irresponsible man, called Jeremaih Useni. EFCC must not snuff up a fair-game situation to act with firmness.

    • Tonnero

      You must have read a different story. Else it makes little sense asking EFCC to arrest the accuser instead of the accused. Anyway, I guess this is the logic in Dumbo republic and you, as a faithful citizen of that republic, are only abiding by that logic.

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        No, Tonnero.

        He read the story, but his brain was too soaked in Sapele Water for him to read and comprehend.

    this guy is so deluded. just can’t understand how he became a governor in the first place. such childish talk. smh

    • Onyeze

      What exactly is childish or delusional about what Amaechi said? You should praise his courage instead. For him to publicly open up about this means that he is speaking the truth. The president’s wife can challenge him if she feels otherwise….ofcourse this means some things she does not want made public might end up in the open.
      Obviously, you don’t see any problem with Patience trying to take what belongs to the people…because people like you are blindly backing GEJ.

    • tulampa

      If u can understand how Jonathan became president in d first place then it will give u exclusive insight how he became a governor

  • sammyctu ode

    I praise the courage of Gov. Amechi in fighting all these dubious, corrupt and evil forces. Gov. Amechi is not a man that talks off the rack. One of the reason why I believe what comes from his mouth is the recent falling out of patience with the governor of balyesa state which led to her so called resignation as super perm secretary. What she should know is that she and her husband will leave office oneday and it’s the people supporting them now that will start exposing them. Once Gen. Buhari takes over in 2015, all their corruptions will be exposed. Please, I don’t belong to any of the parties and I am writing objectively. This country has suffered too much under this present administration. The so called fat slub wike who wants to be Rivers state Governor, what were his achievements as minister of state for education, what has been his impact to our educational sustainability? – ZERO. I praise the resiliency of the Rivers state people under Gov. Amechi and If I may ask, why all of a sudden some of Rivers state oil wells were given to Abia and Balyesa governments during this jonathan administration? This action has created long term emity between Rivers state and these two states for a long time to come and these are the kind of division we don’t need in Nigeria anymore. Any Nigerian President MUST BE A BRIDGE BUILDER TO ALL OF US.

    • Guguru

      You have stated exactly what Sheikh Gumi wrote in his letter to Jonathan urging him not to run for 2015.

      Brilliant observation… Respect!
      To further your thoughts, I believe they made Dickson Governor for a price payable as salaries to the First Lady cum Perm Sec. Simply put, Dickson was being blackmailed for ransom and he simply got sick of it. Her resignation is a fallout from his threats to spill all. Nysom Wike’s achievement as Minister of State, Education, was the kidnap of our Chibok girls while he was on duty eying Rivers Governorship and playing local politics with CP, Mbu Joseph Mbu. Per oil wells. Do you know the ancestral home of Lady Hippopatience in Pitakwa? No! Because she’s actually from Umuahia in Abia State. That explains Ihejirika’s appointment as COAS and the theft of Etche oil well. Soku went to her hubby… Dumbo is divisive, evil and a very low snake… but venomous snake. OBJinx!

          Last we jabbed I thought you said you will never respond to my comments? You see, you’ve not disappointed my assertion that your life depends on crumbs from Reno Omokri to disparage my iconic name. You: “so (Ihejirika) is not qualified enough to be (COAS) even if he was appointed based on his relationship with (Lady Hippo)”…Mumu, that’s called, ‘cronyism’ when you appoint family members into key Govt. positions. It always backfires. Gen. Ihejirika’s calamitous resign is why Northerners led by Admiral Nyako accuse Ibos of revenging the Biafran War by using the Boko Haram insurgency to commit crimes against humanity. I’m Igbo and strictly anti-Ihejirika, the man is evil… shikena! Other examples abound but, let’s read your counter-point if you’ve recovered from my pounding the other day… Olodo!

          • Bigzy

            You are no Igbo! You have already alluded to being of another ethnicity on previous exchanges. Please stop deceiving people.

          • Wähala

            Simple: Prove it… copy-n-paste the comment where I denied my heritage…

          • Bigzy

            “I’m from, I be Naija in two colors and three ethnicities… just no Aborigine!” Does this ring a bell?

          • Wähala

            Mugu,
            I said copy and paste the comment…
            It means, tell me the article, website, with date, etc. That’s how to rebut intelligently, not just making up anything from my lyrics and claiming victories. I did not write that gibberish as you quoted above. Phool, I bet you can’t because it doesn’t exist, simple. I’m more Igbo than you or any Igbo you know… liar!

          • Bigzy

            Are you disclaiming this quote? I have more, you know?

          • Wähala

            Again, copy and paste or refer all to the article so someone else may help you out…
            Keep disgracing yourself in a your lie. Copy the first before you talk of a second comment…
            You can’t because it doesn’t exist. That grammar is too poor even with the Pitakwa English to be credited to me, I edit before posting… unlike you e-rats & clowns who phoolishly type whatever gibberish Reno Omokri handed you before crumbs. COPY-N-PASTE… Olosi !!!

            When I said that I thought you were Hausa, you replied, “Is ‘wahala’ an Hausa word/name or Yoruba?”

            This was clearly an indication of the fact that you are Yoruba. Frankly, it does not matter where you come from. It is the deceit that I cannot stand.

            How could you attribute this to distraction? Come rain or shine, you are what you are. The truth wears no disguise.

          • Wähala

            Trust me, I’m Igbo…
            The distraction was @burning spear aka, @Deri…
            Not withstanding, I also apologize for jabbing on your mother, that was also unnecessary…
            However, trust me, like Joe Igbokwe, I’m core Igbo. It’s @Deri marketing that “Fulani/Igbo” nonsense. Shaa, believe what pleases you but fact remains: I was born in Eko City, went to Fed. Govt. College Kano, and of Igbo parentage… that explains my fluency in the three main languages the phool misconstrued for me being any ethnicity other Igbo. Enough of the Biography… how about a bottle of odeku, you’ve earned one on me? Brain no be agidi… lol!

            I am sure that our paths will cross again. So why ruin a beautiful political enmity with friendship? I would then be in danger of being nice to you. Nnba kwa!

            “mba kwa” is the correct Ibo…
            See? Told you I’m more Igbo than you think…
            No, No! Ask @the truth, even in war situation sometimes a break is ordered so soldiers can share cigarettes… but, no shaking! Keep your niceties while I clean my guns… scared I will poison you with the odeku, ba? Fear no more, a good Catholica is pro life…

          • Bigzy

            I went to school in Lagos. Just because you can write in Igbo does not mean you are Igbo. The White Missionaries also wrote and spoke better Igbo. I am not afraid of death. As Caeser said, “Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once. Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, It seems to me most strange that men should fear; Seeing that death, a necessary end, Will come when it will come.”

          • Wähala

            It was in reaction to your, “why ruin a beautiful political enmity with friendship” rejection of my offer of odeku… thought (& said) I think you’re scared I will poison you. Quite frankly, I don’t care if you’re dead or alive, I know for sure it won’t be by my making… I’m pro life! Kapisch?

      Watch, the year 2015 is a turning point year politically for Nigeria . Buhari as the next President will cage them all. He will not spare anyone not even his APC members. Ribadu will once again return as EFCC chief. Stay tuned!!

      • Bigzy

        Buhari himself as Mr Corruption is not fit to lead an anti corruption crusade. Please stop trying to sell us an expired dream. It won’t wash.

        • Onike24

          Buhari is not corrupt! Like or lump it!

  • King Carlos

    Ameachi/Jonathan feud reminds of Tinubu/ Obasanjo wahala back then. Just like Tinubu, Amaechi is from the president’s geo political zone. No doubt his scuffle with Jonathan has made him stronger and also brought him national fame. For Ameachi to have survived the federal onslaught, he can go ahead to become a regional power broker, just like Tinubu.

    • Guguru

      Very correct. And surprisingly, Amaechi who is a southerner happens to have northern followers too. They see him as a sort of southern hero.

      • NwaMbaise

        Soon he will be made to pay for all the money he stole to build up APC. The Northerners will laugh at him last.

        • Guguru

          Sure, Jonathan makes his enemies pay for their misdeeds. What do you think he has his Boko Haram fighters for?

        Obj`s wife does not stick much of her nose into our affairs and therefore,does not attract so much negative attentions.Your Patience is a de-facto Co-President and therefore,exposed to all the positive and negative criticism that goes with her “exalted” position.

  • UOU

    Its easier for Mr and Mrs Jonathan to take the money, any amount from the source then give Ameachi the balance than give him the total and still come back to ask him to give them part, its nonsense story and Amaechi is so irresponsible and wicked. Amaechi should consider it if another person maybe a local government chairman in his state, is insulting his wife the same way, surely if its a Northern/Yoruba or Igbo President, a Northern/Yoruba or Igbo governor cannot castigate the President’s wife this manner even when the Presidency is ignoring him but Amaechi can be assured that he is digging his own grave because even his APC members are watching and taking notes, whatever he is doing or saying to President Jonathan and his wife(Someone’s wife), he would as well say to Tinubu or Buhari, if they fall out the next day because everything is Politics to him. Atiku with all his fights with Obasanjo never brought his wife nor family into the feud even one time obasanjo’s son jumped in moreso they were almost at par, joint ticket. I wonder why Amaechi is answering Chibuike and Rotimi, no culture, no tradition, no background, no training, he is neither here nor there and should be ignored..Everyone is laughing at him, not with him

    • Thepeople

      There is nothing wrong with people bearing names from different parts of the country. It shows tolerance, exposure, and better enlightenment. Infact it makes a better Nigerian than a tribal ISIS which many Nigerians have become.

      • UOU

        There is everything wrong with someone not being mannered, cultured or both due to fake combinations or claims of different tribal names.In fact, that you answers another tribe’s name does not show tolerance, exposure nor enlightenment, No, it is hypocrisy, all you mentioned is in/of the mind. If you are truly married and respects your wife I don’t know how good you will feel if someone is insulting your wife without reasons,In my place, the husband will go against the assiliant to protect his wife/family. Amaechi’s reckless rascality against the poor woman who is also a mother is just too much and uncalled for, God has made Jonathan Nigerian President and Amaechi Rivers Governor, Amaechi cannot change it, noone can do anything about it moreso, what brought about this current insults on the President’s wife?

        • Reminisce6

          Praises,adulation,criticism,insult,abuses,accolades and recognition goes with occupying a precious position in public space.If you can`t bear criticism of GEJ and his wife you may as well request them to vacate the space they currently occupy and i can bet that no one will go into their doorstep to hurl insult and abuses at them.

Their ‘God-names’ are appropriate Glory-2-God names like: Bishop GoDoWell, Godswill, ThankGod, Godspower, Goodluck, Lucky, Briggs, Brown etc… those are non-native Naija nemas like: Adamu, Adewale and Adimora.

        • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

          Give respect to those who respect themselves!

          If Mr. President’s wife respects herself by keeping her snout out of public officials’ businesses, they would have no course to yab her. Nigeria for her husband and Namadi Sambo, but she has pushed Namadi to one side and even overshadows her husband on others. If she is running around like an out of control locomotive, she is bound to come to grief sooner rather than later.

          Tell her husband to control her unless he wants more embarrassment for her.

          Since when have you read about Michelle Obama or Samantha Cameron making noises about government policies in their respective countries?

            I also “don’t give a damn” about how GEJ feels about it but I do have a concern with an unelected wife jumping out ahead of the queue to go and shake hands with foreign heads of states on official visits and expecting a henpecked hubby and other officials to play second fiddle!

            Why does this bother you so much? I can see your frustration and sense of inappropriateness in this matter and it is quite unwholesome. To characterise madam as someone who jumps for any thing is stretching the truth and I am sure you know it.

            Concerning pride, I have to tell you that my sense of pride comes from wholly different perspectives. As a student in Europe, I was proud of the achievements of Prof Wole Soyinka, I was proud of Chike Obi, the mathematician, and I was proud of Chinua Achebe.

            U dont have to be concerned about my sanity, bcos it isnt in doubt, rather u should be worried about the future of ur kids being exposed to the shamelessness and ineptitude of their father. It isnt a surprise that u view Patience as a role-model. Perhaps ur pay mistress.

            The concerted effort of e-rats like you to discredit the First Lady has blown up in your faces. Imagine an ignoramous like you calling Mrs Jonarhan, who is a University graduate by the way, an illiterate! It is obvious that you believe in trash talking. But just how far are you willing to go in bending the truth? Is this what you are teaching your children? What a pity.

          • Concerned One

            Mr “Bingo”, one of the definitions of Illiteracy according to Webstar dictionary is “having or demonstrating very little or no education”.

            I was just giving you a flavour of what motivates me. If protocol is what rocks your boat, then carry on. Now, it has come to the point where you leer derogatorily at me stating that you know my type. What might that be? Listen, I have no need to drag this through the gutter with you, suffice to say that I reserve the right to choose my heroes. What is Nigeria all about if you are only allowed [by ethnic champions] to choose heroes from parochial ethnic prism? I am not interested in political office, so impressing you and your type does not rank highly in my to-do list. Civility does rank high with me though, as such I will not throw the first punch, but as you have found out in the past, I am not a slouch.

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Bigzy, if civility rates highly with you, then you’d appreciate the point I made about diplomatic protocols.

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

    CHRISTIAN TERRORISM IN THE BIBLE.
    BIBLE QUOTE NUMBERS 31 VERSES;17 So now kill every boy and kill every woman who has had sexual intercourse, 18 but keep alive for yourselves all the girls and all the women who are virgins.
    1) Murder, rape, and pillage at Jabesh-gilead (Judges 21:10-24 NLT)
    So they sent twelve thousand warriors to Jabesh-gilead with orders to kill everyone there, including women and children. “This is what you are to do,” they said. “Completely destroy all the males and every woman who is not a virgin.” Among the residents of Jabesh-gilead they found four hundred young virgins who had never slept with a man, and they brought them to the camp at Shiloh in the land of Canaan.
    The Israelite assembly sent a peace delegation to the little remnant of Benjamin who were living at the rock of Rimmon. Then the men of Benjamin returned to their homes, and the four hundred women of Jabesh-gilead who were spared were given to them as wives. But there were not enough women for all of them. The people felt sorry for Benjamin because the LORD had left this gap in the tribes of Israel. So the Israelite leaders asked, “How can we find wives for the few who remain, since all the women of the tribe of Benjamin are dead? There must be heirs for the survivors so that an entire tribe of Israel will not be lost forever. But we cannot give them our own daughters in marriage because we have sworn with a solemn oath that anyone who does this will fall under God’s curse.”

        your pedophile rapist god and his flesh god son scripts illustrate the terror and cannibalism.

      • JESUS.CHRIST.IS.BASTARD

        And Oopsss…….!I forgot to mention the cannibalism taught in the Holy Bible. All those killing, burning and looting was not enough for the God of Bible to satisfy. He needed the Opponents to be roast-eaten by the Christians.

        John 6:52-53“52 The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” 53 So Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.”

        John 6:60:64“60 When many of his disciples heard it, they said, “This teaching is difficult; who can accept it?” 61 But Jesus, being aware that his disciples were complaining about it, said to them, “Does this offend you? 62 Then what if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? 63 It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh is useless. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. 64 But among you there are some who do not believe.”

        We recently were surprised to hear the news from JOS PLATEAU STATE, Nigeria, that the Christians after killing Muslims are roast-eating their flesh. So it’s clear to all of us now the basic reason behind there inhumane act was nothing but these verses of Bible, the so called book of God.

        AND AFTER ALL THIS SOME CHRISTIANS AND JEWS STILL HAVE THE AUDACITY TO CONDEMN ISLAM FOR VIOLENCE…..!

Are you aware that it is usually the very thief in the market place that almost always starts shouting “Thief thief” or “Ole ole” in order to distract attention from himself?

    Governor Amaechi has reduced the respect, dignity and integrity of the office of the governor to a mere motor park abracadabra. The low level of his language is unbelievable and unbecoming. He has abandoned governance and preoccupied himself with the tirade against president Jonathan and his wife. Whenever he opens his mouth it is either the president or his wife. This a shame and disgrace. When one runs out of ideas he began to chase shadows, this is the lot of Amaechi for now because he has lost the respect Nigerians had for him.

    Calumny is only the noise of madmen. He who establishes his argument by noise and command shows that his reason is weak. Noise proves nothing. Often a hen who has merely laid an egg cackles as if she laid an asteroid. Hate is the consequence of fear; we fear something before we hate it; a child who fears noises becomes a man who hates noise. Quietness is the beginning of virtue. To be silent is to be beautiful. Stars do not make a noise. Oh APC lets have some
    peace and quiet.
    There are seasons in every country when noise and impudence pass current; the clamors of interested and factious men are often mistaken for patriotism. There is something terribly wrong with a culture inebriated by noise and gregariousness. APC please and please Cultivate solitude and quiet and a few sincere friends, rather than mob merriment, noise and thousands of nodding acquaintances.

      So why is Nigeria living below it’s potential if your president is so pure?

      • Hachimenum

        Bea, Nigeria’s problem is not Mr. President. It is with those around him and then the citizenry – You and me. Until we are ready to move this nation forward, we’ll remain where we are. Blames and counter blames never solve problems; reasoning rationally and taking worthwhile actions do. God bless you, Bea.

    Nigeria has some shallow people. This Gov. is telling you the real issues affecting your country yet you are out here condemning him. Unbelievable

    • Hachimenum

      Bea, what issues do you think the Gov is telling? Only those of us from Rivers state and who live there know the truth and the falsehood in all these charades. Soon, very soon, the truth will be unveiled.

      • iynaroc

        How do you know the truth? Because you are in Rivers State? Were you there when these issues were taking place and being discussed behind closed doors. Nigerians always make unwarranted claims. Please tell us your position within the Rivers State Government or the Office of the First Lady. The main characters know the truth.

        • Hachimenum

          I repeat soon, very soon the truth will out!!!

  • GbemigaO

    Governor! you are vicariously liable and should be charged immediately you leave power. You awarded a contract and the contractor ran away. What have you done to retrieve the money. What are you afraid of that you cannot complain to EFCC about the contractor. In a sane society, you and the contractor will be cooling your heels in jail! Bunch of thieves .

    • honsla

      My frnd shot up, the federal government gave d contract to d education minister nd paid nt d governor, so read d article very well so u can understand.

      • GbemigaO

        I do not abuse on this forum but you are definitely an uncouth individual that needs to grow up. Why is it difficult for you to make comments or disagree with others views without being rude? This shows your level of thinking. By the way , I went through the story and I have gone through again. I will appreciate it if you can pick up where it is said that it was the Federal Government that gave out the contract . I will copy the relevant section for you to read again and probably that will help you to improve on your understanding and education.

        ” Mr. Amaechi also blamed the failure of the Rumuolumeni Road construction project on the immediate past minister of state for education, Nyesom Wike, whom he described as incompetent.

        He said the state government awarded N1.5 billion for the construction of internal roads in Rumulumeni and had already given the indigenous contractor, who is also from the area, N700 million.

        “We said Rivers money for Rivers people because they don’t have capital. This man took the contract and gave it to a man who now wants to be governor.

        “This man that is being backed by Mrs. Jonathan gave N250 million to the indigenous contractor and disappeared with N450 million without constructing the road. And this is the man who wants to be governor, with billboards screaming the concept of ‘New Vision’.”

    Premiumtimes, has it not occurred to your organization that censorship of certain comments should be enforced?????

  • Ikira

    Simbo, many thanks.. very refreshing to read this, i think the central bank as a regulatory agency, should sanction the banks and make them refund the proceeds of their greed retroactively or go out of business.

    Thanks for this article; I have
    similar experience for a transaction I initiated on Monday December 21. I was debited at N400.89/GBP1 even when the
    parallel market rate was nowhere near that on the same date. I have written to them for answers and I intend
    to formally write to CBN and other relevant bodies. Is there a way to contact
    you? Or perhaps collaborate in seeking redress?

  • sssms316

    Thank you for this..I have always said that these Banks are by far the real monsters that are actually eating up the future of the ordinary Nigerian. They have actually reached to a state of maturity that even the government has since fallen into their web..maybe because of the self-centered and greedy politicians/civil servants that get too soft and easy money from the shady activities of these monsters (banks). Mind you the entire banking industry everywhere is just a business like many others and if you don’t control their practices they will always go wild, take the advantage and get that easy/fast money..GREED!

  • Ojuolape Afeez

    Thanks Simbo. Hope CBN would respond to some of the issues raised in this article? I also want Premium Times to investigate further to safe this country from greedy politicians and businessmen.

  • Zuby Emodi

    Well, the banks are victims in this case and the CBN remains the culprit. You don’t get money(fx) from CBN without bidding, which means you only get after the expense had been incurred. When banks had issues getting FX to offset the international card use obligations with CBN rationing, they also reduced the limits to align with whatever ration CBN gives them. That is why you see some with $3000 limits others with $10000. If they make money off the hook like you claim, they will let you spend $1m . Now the CBN does not give them FX to offset these obligations, they are forced to source FX from the black market. As long as the CBN doesn’t give them FX we will continue to experience this. I was billed N 280.47 to a dollar by the bank I consider the biggest bank in Nigeria just yesterday 25th Dec. The banks have hinted that next year you cannot use your card …they ate tired. With CBN’ S stance on devaluation or free float, our economy has gone gaga. The damage is becoming irreparable. Our economic team…if they exist is a big joke. Understand the dynamics and you will be sorry for the banks. CBN is giving them nothing. Where fraud cones in is that the transactions may be on queue and CBN may still pay later which translateS to fraudulent subsidy. When VISA or Mastercard has a 3 day settlement contract and you need to wait for CBN for 3 months what will you do? All the money pumped into the system by CBN by way of reducing CRR was inveterate in shipping dollars and that explains the new jump in rate. I told them and try turned a deaf ear. January Dollar will hit 230..if care is not taken

  • Zuby Emodi

    *CRR was invested in getting dollars to offset the rising obligations. Banks stopped waiting as devaluation may catch them along the line and they may pay more that what the current parallel market is offering
