The Rivers State Governor and Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, has given President Goodluck Jonathan one condition to return to the Peoples Democratic Party.

Amaechi said he was ready to go back to the PDP if Jonathan would return Rivers oil wells ceded to neighbouring Bayelsa State.

The governor, who spoke on Monday during a rally organised by the All Progressives Congress at the Liberation Stadium in Port Harcourt, said despite the 2.1 million votes Jonathan received in the state in 2011, the Federal Government had not executed any project in Rivers.

He dismissed claims that the ceding of Rivers oil wells in Soku to Bayelsa State was done during the tenure of former Governor Rufus Ada George.

Amaechi said, “We gave the President nearly 2.1 million votes. Let him tell us one project he has done for us. I have challenged the President that I belong to APC. If he wants me back in PDP, let him return the oil wells to the Kalabari people and I will come back.

“But the President cannot. Instead, he will take more. One of our sons, a Kalabari son, said the oil wells were taken under Rufus Ada-George. Tell him I say he is lying. He never served in any government. I served under Ada-George government and there was no oil well taken from Rivers State then.

“I served under Dr. Peter Odili. The oil well was taken in 2006. They put the money in an escrow account and by 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010, they took all the money and gave to our brothers and they converted Soku to Bayelsa.”

  1. So the cause of defection is oil well controversy. Remember you said you are number one on the sniper list. Who in particular are you fooling? So in exchange for a few oil wells, you are ready to return to where you have been put on a hit list. Bravo. Clever boy

  4. Sometime i begin to wonder what type of blind pursuit and greed of personal survival should push a performing governor to self destruction. He now speaks without regards and restrain just like his now new found godgather( who once say his nomination as governor has a K- leg). He is now playing God, challenging higher authority with reckless abandon but remember, God resisted the proud but give grace to the humble!. You are heeding to destruction!

  13. Gov Amaechi has served as a local gov chairman, speaker for 8 years and governor for 8 years, he has nothing to loose politically. I believe that's he talks carelessly and unguarded. However, i pity those new comers in nigeria politcs who are jumping into a big political wilderness.
