…Kill the contractors before we act
Prodigal son of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Governor Rotomi Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers State has been chided for daring to call for a revolution in Nigeria. Amaechi who received the All Progressive Congress (APC) party chieftains in Port Harcourt, where they had come to woo him to their party told the crowd to get ready to die as they stage a revolution.
“They are so desperate that they have gone to hire Commissioner Mbu as the military wing of the PDP. One thing you should know is that the police will come after you. The only way to stop them is the people’s power. When you hear of impunity, it’s because you allow it. When you hear that Amaechi is courageous, it’s because I take risk. You must come out when we ask you to do so. There is no revolution without blood”, he said.
In a quick response, notable activist, Roz Ben Okagbue lashed out on the Governor for daring to deceive the people into revolution when his children will not be part of it. Lampooning Amaechi, he said, “So these politicians honestly believe that on their behalf the innocent citizens of Nigeria will hit the streets and shed their own blood? On what grounds?
What have they done for us lately? Have they used our money to build state of the art hospitals so our people stop going to India to die? Have they built and equipped schools and universities so that we stop sending our children to Ghana for a sound education?”
Asking rhetorically, he quipped, “Is it not the same Amaechi who found enough funds to buy and fly around in a private jet? On what grounds are we coming out to revolt for them? And whose blood should be spilt may I ask? Let them line up their sons and daughters and have them killed first. After that they can line up the people they gave contracts to. If they are looking for whose to use for blood sacrifice, they should know that charity begins at home! How many of these G7 Northern governors in question brought money to compensate the BH victims? What did even Amaechi himself do when Obasanjo and Yar’adua’s government were bombing his people? Now they are looking for innocent blood to spill”.
He noted that the call for revolution is not inevitable, but definitely not Amaechi or any of the sitting politicians who will call the masses out for it. “Enough is enough! Anyone who steps on the streets on the account of these thieving politicians must be completely stupid. If and when we are ready to revolt, we know who will call us; most certainly not serving governors simply because they are out of favour. They are all dancing naked in the market square. We shall continue watching like it’s a movie”
