“I don’t have President Jonathan’s number so I couldn’t text to wish him well” – Amaechi

by Segun Odeleye

During a live radio programme in Port Harcourt yesterday, the Rivers governor slammed President Goodluck Jonathan once again, saying that, “The past FG administration did so many things for the state. They built refineries, petrol chemical companies and other projects, but the present administration has not done anything for the State. I am worried that we have not benefited much from the present FG. If we are from the South-South, do to me the way you do to others. What you are doing to others you should do it to us.”

Asked whether he sent a text message to the president to wish him well following the president’s illness, Amaechi said he does not have the telephone number of President Goodluck Jonathan.

“I don’t have his (Jonathan’s) number. I learnt he was not well and I wish him well. We are meeting with the President on Sunday. I wish the meeting will hold. I don’t have any personal issue with Jonathan other than the issues that concern the state. Politics is about interest. That you are our son does not mean we will support you when you don’t have our interest at heart. We as a state have not benefited anything from the present administration led by President Jonathan for the past six years,” he said.

The governor however wished the president well via his twitter handle on the day he fell ill in London.
