Wada: Tried, Tested, Trusted, still the most preferred


He is a man who knows how to hold his own without vanity or flamboyance.

Capt Idris Wada, Kogi State Governor, is humble without servility, effective without showiness, brilliant without bullying.

An unobtrusive stalwart, selflessly serving for posterity, Wada's nearly three years of stewardship as governor when x-rayed against his efforts at transforming the state, is what many believe makes him still the most preferred in 2015.

Rivers APC Clears the Air Why Amaechi Dumped PDP

GOV AMAECHI WITH APC LEADERS
...Warns Blackmailers

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has cleared the air on why the State Governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi dumped the ‘tattered umbrella’ of the doomed Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and embraced the ‘revolutionary broom’ of APC despite having spoken negatively about the APC symbol in the past.

The party warned blackmailers who are so frightened by the high rise of the national political profile of Governor Amaechi and are desperate to bring him down by attempting to make a mountain out of a molehill to look for something better to do as Rivers people and, indeed, Nigerians are too politically advanced to be easily deceived by unserious minds that clutch at straws in their quest for political relevance.

I Believe Wike and Amaechi Are Working Together - Princewill


Before I go into the reasons why, let me start by congratulating the President for the best declaration I have ever seen in Nigeria. The organisation could have done with some improvements but the delivery and the content were amazing. For those who know me, they know I am usually very conservative in my marking. Even when my "friend from before" Amaechi was still close to me, the best score he got was a 6/10. On Tuesday the President got an 8. Nobody has ever extracted an 8 from me, even for a singular event. The President did that. In spite of the cowardly actions of the Boko Harm the day before, he didn't loose focus. He kept his eyes on the ball. A feat both them and the APC did not expect. Since the conclusion of that momentous event, many others have been singing his praises. So I will not attempt to occupy that space today, I will rather focus on my state.

I have always been suspicious of Wike and Amaechi, they always represented the old guard. The analog politicians. Bullys who know no other way. Men who by their DNA believe in their way or the highway, that women should be seen not heard and Ijaw expression must be contained. That is why ever since the fight between them started, I have neither been comfortable or matter of fact about it. If any of you think that their fight it is too elaborate to be staged, think again. I know it isn't. Amaechi is not a fool, neither is Wike. They have learnt from their masters and understand more than most the benefit of foresight. I can go into some of the schemes they have plot before now or similar examples of politricks, but we don't have the time. Take it from me, village sense is still sense.

2015: We’ll Beat PDP Mercilessly, Rivers APC Declares
