2015: Lamido, Amaechi’s Posters Flood Abuja * I’ve no hand in it — Amaechi

Rivers State Governor, Hon Chibuike Amaechi

ABUJA — AS impeachment threat dangles before embattled Rivers State governor, Chibuike Amaechi , posters bearing his photograph and that of his Jigawa counterpart, Sule Lamido, for the 2015 presidential election now litter some parts of Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
But the governor has denied having any ambition to contest the 2015 election against President Goodluck Jonathan, saying the posters might be the handiwork of his political detractors.
Governor Amaechi’s poster with the Peoples Democrtic Party, PDP, logo, pasted along the highway and some bus stops, especially, the Federal Housing Estate Kubwa, Dutse bus stop and others, struggled for space with Church Crusade posters.

They were posted early morning of Democracy Day.
Commenting on the appearance of his posters in Abuja, Governor Amaechi, who spoke through his Commissioner for Information, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, said he neither had any political ambition for the 2015 presidential election nor printed posters.
The governor, who was recently handed down a suspension order by the National Working Committee of Peoples Democratic Party after his victory at the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF, election, said he had no knowledge of any poster being pasted in the FCT.
“We have no such knowledge (of the posters) The governor of Rivers State has not printed any poster, but it may be the detractors behind that. Governor Chibuike Amaechi is not interested in election in 2015,” he said.
Meanwhile, a Niger Delta group that goes with the name, Credible Nigeria, has advised President Goodluck Jonathan and Governor Rotimi Amaechi to find a way to settle their political differences, saying continuous acrimony by the duo will not be in the interest of the region.
National Chairman of Credible Nigeria, Chief Ibyekaribo Longjohn, said the political differences between the two prominent Niger Delta sons were affecting the economy of Rivers State, alleging that the state was getting backward as a result of the distractions.
Longjohn advised Governor Amaechi to accord due respect to the President and also appealed to Dr. Jonathan to respect the governor.
