Patience Jonathan – I Did Not Ask Amaechi For Rivers’ Money

Wife of the President, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, on Sunday denied a statement by Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State that she asked him to share the state funds with her.

I refused to give them money in Abuja because if I do that, I won’t be able to carry out any development project or finish the road from Rumuolumeni to Rumuepirikom. The quarrel between me and the wife of the President is because she said I should bring your money, Rivers people’s money and share with her,” the governor reportedly said. But Mrs. Jonathan, in a statement by her media assistant, Mr. Ayo Adewuyi, said Amaechi’s statement was a deliberate attempt to malign her and score cheap political point.

She further described the governor’s statement as a lie designed to denigrate her person and rubbish the Presidency. It is crystal clear that Governor Amaechi is looking for cheap excuse for his failure in the governance of the state. She said she could not have made such a request from the governor either directly or indirectly.
