Amaechi reveals why he opposes the President


Rivers State Governor and Chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), Mr. Chibuike Amaechi, has said he is opposed to President Goodluck Jonathan because the South-south region where the president comes from has not benefited from his administration.
He also listed the parlous state of the economy, the poverty rate and the poor infrastructure, especially the East-West Road, as some of the reasons he is opposed to Jonathan’s presidency.
On Uduaghan’s remarks that opposition to Jonathan should not come from the president’s South-south region, Amaechi stated that he considered Nigeria’s national interest far and above any other interest.
He bemoaned the fact that those fighting a just cause were being maligned on the altar of public criticism.
