Governor Amaechi melted our hearts with words yesterday. Read and become inspired... "I am here to test my popularity. They have made too much noise. The President says we exist only on posters and billboards. So, we brought a large billboard for him. If the President is not watching (the rally) they will give him security report. This stadium is 40,000 sitting capacity; I built it, It was built by me. One of them campaigning for governorship was the contractor to do the roads. He abandoned the roads and took N3 billion and left, and now he wants to be governor. A thief will not be our governor! I challenge them to an integrity test. Any of them from Abuja to Rivers State, I challenge them to an integrity test. I have worked with them; I have their records and they (records) are in the Office of the Governor. I challenge any of them to performance. In 50 years, all the state governments put together plus council chairmen; they built six classroom blocks, but in seven years I have built 20 classroom blocks. We have developed 715 megawatts of electricity, but the problem is Federal Government allowing us to distribute electricity. They don't want you to have electricity. Vote them out! We were to give Port Harcourt water; as I am talking to you today, the Minister of Finance has refused to move the file again back to the Executive Council for approval so that you can have water. They don’t care for you; they want you to die of water- borne diseases. Punish them with your votes; punish PDP with your votes. They say He (Jonathan) is our son, then why can’t we have ordinary water? The problem we have is that the EFCC is no longer working. Corruption is at its industrial scale. Thieves are thieves because we now have an industry called corruption. They said the reason why the President is not performing in Rivers State is because, he is quarreling with the governor of Rivers State. Okay, what is the quarrel between the Governor of Akwa Ibom and the Governor of Cross River that the road from Akwa Ibom to Cross River is abandoned. Are they quarreling too?

It is more of lack of performance. So, if the President says it is because he is quarreling with me, was he quarreling with me in 2012 when he took our oil wells, was he quarreling with me? He (Jonathan) took our oil wells in Kalabari areas. He took the whole of Soku; he went to Etche; he took 41 oil wells and he wants Etche people to vote for him. I am waiting for the election. He wants Kalabari people to vote for him. This is to show you that he doesn’t care. Even the Riverine people, he says he won’t give them governor that they should go to hell! Today when the President spoke in Benin, he spoke in a stadium that was less than 20,000. When TAN held their rally in Port Harcourt, they held it at the 16,000 capacity stadium and this was a South- South rally. The rally in Benin was South-South; the rally in Port Harcourt was South- South. This one (APC mega rally) is Port Harcourt rally. I urge Rivers people to embrace APC and vote out PDP in 2015 general elections. So therefore, APC is the solution to protect our interests. We must go there to vote out the PDP. It is not about our son or he is our brother. They tell you that you should not vote for these people (Buhari et al) because they are Hausa people or because they are Muslims. But the refinery in Rivers was built and commissioned by Tafawa Balewa; he is a northerner and also a muslim. Shagari started NAFCON, IBB commissioned, IBB started the Eleme Petrochemical, Abacha completed. They are all northerners; they are all muslims. NLNG was started and completed by Abacha, and he is a northerner and a Muslim. Bonny NLNG, NDDC, Niger Delta Ministry and so many others were established by northerners and muslims.
What has a Christian done for us? In fact, when Yar’Adua was alive, Niger Delta Ministry was working, now, it is only one item; East-West Road and they say he (President Jonathan) is our brother. He is not my brother; my brother is the man who delivers on his services. And the truth about boko Haram is that why is it that the military don't want to allow the police to work with them hand in hand in other to end this increasing attack, and by the way the words of General Abacha that any insurgency through out the world, once it is more than 72 hours then there is government interest In that. Words of wisdom, can we still survive another four years of this massive massacre of our people
