"This is a blatant lie" -Patience Jonathan Responds To Gov. Amaechi Rotimi's Claims

Last week River State governor Rotimi Amaechi while at the joint graduation of the students of the University of Ibadan and pioneer graduates of Ignatius Ajuru University of Education said that his problem with the First lady of Nigeria Patience Jonathan all started after he refuse to give her shares of River State money. Patience Jonathan through her media assistance Mr. Ayo Adewuyi released a statement to condemn Gov. Amaechi's claims.

 “Having waited patiently for Governor Amaechi to refute the statement credited to him about the First Lady, (with the assumption that he was misquoted), it has become clear that it was a deliberate attempt to malign Dame Patience Jonathan and score cheap political point.

 “The governor may have been beclouded by the political uncertainty surrounding him to make such a jaundiced and unsubstantiated allegation that the First Lady asked him to bring Rivers State’s money to share.
“This is a blatant lie designed to denigrate the person of Dame Patience Jonathan and rubbish the Presidency. This is to say the least, most unfortunate.
“It is crystal clear that Governor Amaechi is looking for a cheap excuse for his failure in the governance of the state. We say without any iota of equivocation that the First Lady never made such a request and could not have done so in any way either directly and indirectly.
“The First Lady as an indigene of Rivers State is more concerned with the socio-economic development of the state and in a peaceful atmosphere. This guerrilla political warfare must stop.”
