    Amaechi is a big shame to Rivers people who you are Governing with your greedy and selfish leadership. God will expose you soon when the time comes. Thought you people said you were fighting for the masses yet its solely for your own benefits alone and you are trying to force the masses into such disaster of greed. Act right and God willl make things right if at all it was even wrong.

      @Steve Benson, let not full ourselves protecting either Amaechi/Jonathan, pls can you tell me any politician in that country called Nigeria that is fighting for masses, the answer is NO. Governor Amaechi and President Jonathan are greedy and selfish leaderships, everyday the corruption is increasing masses are suffering while our leaders are busy stealing our tresure with impurity. President Goodluck have not jail any corrupt leader since his tenure, didn’t we have corrupt leaders? the answer is YES, he is busy struggling for 2015 without achieving anything. I weep for my people.

    To me PDP needs dialogy and resolution the conflict among themselves. Spliting is not the solution. My question is, what are they expecting we the masses to advocating for by spliting the part?

North Is The Worst Place To Live In Nigeria -Sultan of Sokoto



The Sultan of Sokoto,Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar, on Thursday lamented the high rate of insecurity in the North, saying it was the worst place in the country to live.

Sultan of Sokoto North

The Sultan, who stated this at the fourth quarterly meeting of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council in Abuja, said bandits were fast overrunning the North as residents slept with their eyes open.

While describing the North as the worst place to live, he said that bandits had become daring.

He said they moved from house to house, village to village, market to market, with AK-47 rifles openly, purchasing foodstuffs and other items and even collecting change without any challenge from the security agencies.

The foremost traditional ruler stated that the security system in the North had completely collapsed.

He said, “Security situation in Northern Nigeria has assumed a worrisome situation. Few weeks ago, over 76 persons were killed in a community in Sokoto in a day. I was there with the governor to commiserate with the affected community.

“Unfortunately, you don’t hear these stories in the media because it’s in the North. We have accepted the fact that the North does not have strong media to report the atrocities of these bandits.

“People think North is safe but that assumption is not true. In fact, it’s the worst place to be in this country because bandits go around in the villages, households and markets with their AK 47 and nobody is challenging them.

“They stop at the market, buy things, pay and collect change, with their weapons openly displayed. These are facts, I know because I am at the centre of it.

“I am not only a traditional ruler, I am also a religious leader. So, I am in a better place to tell the story. I can speak for the North in this regard because I am fully aware of the security challenges there. We have to sincerely and seriously find solutions to the problem, otherwise, we will find ourselves soon, in a situation where we would lose sleep because of insecurity.
