ATTACK ON GOODLUCK JONATHAN | Amaechi, Oshiomhole are serial betrayers – Ijaw Group

by on June 15, 2017
 
For attacking former President Goodluck Jon­athan, the Save Ijaw Na­tion Group (SING) has taken Transport Minister Rotimi Amaechi and former Gover­nor Adams Oshiomhole to the cleaners, describing them as double-faced liars and se­rial betrayers.
Both Amaechi and Os­hiomhole were reported to have spoken against Jonathan at separate events on Tuesday.
While the former Edo gov­ernor had queried Jonathan’s capacity as President, Amae­chi had claimed that Nigeria was heading towards a civil war during the 2015 elections.
However, replying the two politicians in one statement, the Save Ijaw Group accused Amaechi of delusional think­ing, stressing that Amaechi was among those threaten­ing war while Jonathan was preaching peace.
The statement issued by the Coordinator of the Group, Mr Otobo Osborne also remind­ed Oshiomhole that he had before now always praised Jonathan for his statesman­ship but has turned against the ex-President because “he is out of a job and is desperate to curry favour with the hope of getting a new job.”
The statement reads: “Rotimi Amaechi, the man who threatened that his party would form a parallel govern­ment if they did not win the 2015 election now accuses former President Jonathan who said ‘my ambition is not with the blood of any Nige­rian’, of leading Nigeria to a civil war. If this is not delu­sional thinking then it is hard to imagine what is.
“Never, since the civil war has Nigeria been as divided as it is today with different regions of the nation giving quit notices to each other. A prudent person would in such circumstances tailor their speech to build unity, but not Rotimi Amaechi. Sadly, what we are experiencing today is the culmination of the threats made during the course of the 2015 elections by persons like Amaechi.
Also, on the recent vitu­peration by the former Edo State Governor Adams Osh­iomhole, against the person of Dr Goodluck Jonathan, it is sufficient to use Oshiomhole’s own words to counter him.
Nigerians may recall that after winning his re-election in 2012, Adams Oshiom­hole visited the Aso Rock Presidential Villa on July 17, 2012 and in a chat with State House correspondents, stated: “President Jonathan has demonstrated statesman­ship. I think there is hope for Nigeria.
