Governor Amaechi Gets Slammed over Zoning Formula

As the controversy over zoning governorship position in Rivers State continues, a PDP chieftain in Rivers State, Emma Anyanwu, has supported the PDP in Rivers State on no zoning formula in 2015 election.
Emma Anyanwu in a chat said the rotation policy as prescribed by Governor Amaechi was intended to exclude Rivers people in choosing a governorship candidate of their choice in 2015.

“It’s a rotation that he (Amaechi) wants to use to exclude people and nobody has exclusive right in this state to bring out a candidate. Those who want to run as governor of this state should present themselves to Rivers people. If the quality in you, the character in you is that that can govern the state we’ll give it to you it to you to govern. There is no place, no single place in Rivers state that one person will sit down to zone PDP governorship election anywhere. What happens in that line is that when once a governor emerges, then a deputy governor comes from an angle.”

Emma Anyanwu further accused Governor Rotimi Amaechi of insincerity in his call for a zoning of the governorship slot.
“I am from the same senatorial zone with him, has he asked himself the moral question why Etchie has not presented a senator since the inception of Rivers state. The zone is owned by 3 ethnic groups, Etchie, Ikwerre and Okirika. Okirika has gone several times, Ikwerre has gone several times, he has sat down there, he has refused to allow Etchie people to go for senate to represent the zone, yet he came out to tell Rivers people he is working on rotation. If he wants to apply the word of rotation he should start from his senatorial zone."

Prince Emma Anyanwu further said governor Amaechi is delusional on the level of the support he has amongst ordinary people.

“Rivers people have really been deceived when he brings out commissioners to talk on his behalf. We believe that he should derive his support from the people not those that are employed by him. If he Amaechi wants to know what level of support he has in this state, I challenge him to dissolve his EXCO and keep it out for one month and see where he if will get anybody that will walk into that government house for anything.”
