“How can we lose Osun? Say something else!” | We pick our top 10 quotes from Amaechi’s latest interview

by Emmanuel Chidiogo

The Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi, recently hosted a group of journalists at his residence, and answered questions on the state of the nation, his disagreement with President Goodluck Jonathan, and other issues.

Below are top 10 quotes from the interview;

1) In Nigeria nobody runs for president. You just sit and you become president.

2) What is all this rumour that I am going to the PDP? I have finished with the PDP.

3) what we have is a diarchy not a democracy – government by both the military and the civilian.

4) So, first we need to get a new chairman and he has to be a Christian (Speaking on the APC chairmanship post)

5) How can we lose Osun? Say something else.

6) If the presence of soldiers could stop violence, by now Borno should be the citadel of joy and happiness where people would be dancing

7) There are many soldiers in Abuja and of all places that we have thought would be very secure is the plaza, which was bombed recently. So, police are enough.

8) I think in the current security situation, police are enough for security measure during election.

9) From come and be vice-president, what is he now? So, why do people ask me whether I want to be president after this kind of intervention by God? Why not ask me whether I am fasting?

10) A leader must be ready to sacrifice his life for his country. And if I was the president of Nigeria, I would not because I want to win election split this country into two religious lines.

  1. let me remind all this politicians that they should continew with their evil ways,if people of this country ready for them they will know then they are nothinnnnnnnng.

  2. other countries are busy making sure that their countries are progressing in terms of infrastructural development. it a shame and disgusting that a nation called “nigeria” is suffering in the hands of few visionless, selfcentred, treacherous, goons and heartless leaders who only enter office for preparation for the next election. Nobody talks about the failed electric power system. what a pity!

  3. All our leaders are lier and corrupt,so l can not truth them.they are the same.
