The politics of Rivers State is getting messier. Governor Rotimi Amaechi's convoy was prevented by a team of policemen from using one of the two entrance to the government house.

The Governor's convoy was intercepted by four truck loads of policemen, lead by senior police officers, as it made its way through the Forte road entrance.

The act which lead to an argument between the policemen and Amaechi's aides forced the Governor to alight and he was told they were acting on orders from above and can only reverse on the order if asked to do so by the superiors the order came from in Abuja.

The governor's convoy had to wait for 45 minutes before finally detouring to take the Azikiwe road entrance to to the government house

What is all this in this country?
Jonathan is going too far
9/13/2013 1:01:17 PM
Things are really happening ooo! What right does police have to harass a serving governor....GEJ is really going to the extreme in this issue. I pity his ambition come 2015.

'Dem are c***y' as Fela Kuti said. Naija, is this your democracy where an elected Governor, the people's mandate is barricaded from using the state road to get to the state house to perform his official duty. Unbelievable things are happening in Naijaoo!
It's getting DIRTY!
9/13/2013 3:32:52 PM
If the governors entry into the govt house thru that route will cause break down of law and order, it is the constitutional responsibility of the police to prevent that from happening.
also Dis commissioner of police needs to defend his worthless action...does he wants to become the governor??
well we all know what our fresh air dispenser and the shepopo are capable of doing..
Make una thread softly softly
9/13/2013 3:53:38 PM
What if the populace, assuming armed (MEND, OPC, militants, etc), now wants to protect their governor? Wouldn't that lead to a confrontation with the police with both sides thinking they're right? What role will the military play and who would be in charge?
Where did the police get the "authority" to stop a sitting governor? The police are meant to enforce the judgment as passed by the judiciary.
I dare Goodluck Jonathan and the IGP to try this with Rabiu Kwankwaso of kanoor Wammako of Sokoto then we will see if they really have balls.I'm just laughing, is this joke or what?!!
Be careful Amaechi
9/13/2013 4:20:23 PM
amaechi is going too far ,gej has been too lenient with him. it is up to Mr President to do the necessary things in order to restore sanity and discipline back into the party. The law is above any man, and as such Amaechi should respect the laws and constitution of the land he has be falsely claiming he is defending. Let him stop making issues out of nothing, he could have used another road instead of the one that was barricaded. The press also needs to toe the line of decorum, why would they report that Amaechi was barred from the Govt house when he was only prevented from using one of the numerous roads that leads there.
9/14/2013 9:02:26 AM
Jonathan is not only clueless. He is also brainless. It is small kids who fight the way he is fighting. His very look cuts the picture of a man who is not smart. I still don't understand how Nigeria and Nigerians fell into the hands of this visionless boy who pretends to be a man. His illiterate wife is his major undoing. She is pushing him to perdition. In any case, Goodluck has sent an invitation to the ever-waiting military boys. Mark my words, a COUP DETAT is inevitabe.

You are right!!! I'm right behind you. I've echoed this so many times. Well done for re-echoing my thoughts. We are watching from abroad.
People are watching.
9/13/2013 1:04:23 PM
God is d only sure security. With all d security in Aso rock, didn't Abacha die. Amaechi should not worry. As long as he is of God, he should be rest assured that angels are on guard! The enemies must keep off.
he has to obey the law
9/13/2013 4:22:00 PM
Is the governor God? It is you people who give these officials this idea that they're untouchable deities. Better believe we are in a democracy and no one is above the law - including governors.
Psycho War!
9/13/2013 1:38:38 PM
My friend this has nothing to do with Nigeria as a country but men who want to outdo themselves: From the Video you heard Amaechi saying:"Oh! Because the Police Commission is at home that is why the road is blocked and the Governour is not supposed to to pass?" And the reply was a resounding YES! So what is the problem? After all he had alternative rout to his mansion. Amaechi will continue playing this villain-role and at same time cohorting with the Mallams from the North.

9/13/2013 4:23:15 PM
Did you know how Government Houses was planned and lay-out across the country ? What is right will always be right and what is wrong will always be wrong. Imagine if a your neighbor or tenant bar you from entering your building (place of abode). I wonder the reason behind this show of shame from CP MBU and his Oga at the top .
This is impunity of the highest order and it is barbaric .
power struggle
9/13/2013 3:09:23 PM
We all know who is threatenin our beloveth governor.if anything should happen to gov rotimi amaechi we know who to point so no shaking na just some clueless presidential gra gra. This all started when Amaechi made his intention known to contest for presidency in 2015, so gej got pissed off.
I pity Nigeria
9/13/2013 4:09:51 PM
can i say something here, GEJ reminded "Dear GEJ, please don't forget that this is how ur mentors(Saddam Hussein & Gardafi) started their waka o.. That said, GEJ is towing the path of destruction. That is y it pays to be a rascal. You can't try this in Lagos or any South Western State.Blocking a governor from entering his government house, without his consent, is condemnable though.
Going into 2015, Nigeria faces two major threats in this order. 1. President Jonathan's ambition. 2. Boko Haram.

Remember d wdrawal of security from atiku by obj? Same 4 ngige wh he was then governor?
Shame,shame 2 police force.
Amaechi v GEJ
na wa
9/13/2013 1:07:22 PM
Another reason why the crisis of PDP is far from being over. GEJ, always looking for whom to blame, is OBJ responsible? I know one thing, if anything should happen to Amaechi, GEJ will be held responsible.Amaechi and Jonathan is just like Big Show and John Cina. We go see who go beat each other in 2015.
This is inhumane!
9/13/2013 1:10:24 PM
so d power of presidency is to bully d weaker ones, wat den do u now refer to dis system of gov. dfinatly not dmocracy. ppl like shuldnt b allow to power by any means.
o God this is Nigeria
9/13/2013 1:12:34 PM
This is an abuse of power. It is an insult to the people of Rivers State who freely elected Amechi as thier governor. I hope a power drunking man is not attempting to use Rivers to trunicate our democracy because of his iminent failure in the 2015 project.
9/13/2013 2:33:22 PM
Nah only God go judge all the things wey dey happun for this country
Worried sonny
9/13/2013 2:38:37 PM
The police command via the presidency is making a mockery of our so-called democracy. Why are Nigerians keeping their mouths shut in these travesties? We have become a laughing stock just because a few politicians have decided to defy all sensibilities in the name of power play. Shame on them. One thing is certain, they will step down one day taste their own medicine.

I hope Amaechi has secured the services of a reliable Niger Delter militant group to protect him for the main time before the un/expected happens.This GEJ na baba, he knws how to handle political issues. Just like a professional mumu.
Jonah is setting his own trap.
9/13/2013 3:14:48 PM
Real democrats have no problem withJonathan contesting 2015. He is personally and constitutionally entitled to that. Only the electorate will and should decide his fate. That is the real issue. so what is his stress.

9ja na wah o
chop mamoney
9/13/2013 3:17:53 PM
The truth of the matter is that Amaechi was not informed of the said road block. Secondly if the road block was a security measure to protect the governor, why didn't the police just let the Governor in and continue their road block after he has entered the premises?
Amaechi will surely overcome.
Rivers people
9/13/2013 3:26:27 PM
Amaechi is the Chief Security officer of Rivers State and has every right to pass any route he so chooses, either to avoid a security threat, to assess a security threat or to solve a security problem.. Why didnt the Police stop Amaechi all those times when he was entering into the bushes and going after criminals and militants.. Why didnt the Police barricade Okrika LGA to avert breakdown of Law and Order when Mrs. Porky Jonathan insulted the Governor at the town hall meeting?! Why now?! Shey thats the same way that these areas shown on the MAP were also blocked to avert breakdown of Law and Order when that Vessel of a first lady visited Port Harcourt for 11days and literally barred the State Governor from passing that route.

Rivers People are not f**led by what they hear.
This is how coup starts o
9/13/2013 3:36:15 PM
Why always amaechi? Why not akpabio or any other non opposition governor? This only points to one thing........ The presidency. For their info, it only gives him more reason to be rebellious. The order from the Oga at the top is very crystal, "make him as uncomfortable as possible in his state" else which gut has a mere commissioner of police to harass a sitting governor like this in his own state?With the way lawlessness is going I hope the military won't tell the President to take another route soon.
what of security implications
9/13/2013 3:46:12 PM
What happens if the diversion was to lead them into a trap? Their routes are well planned ahead and he was not informed of the blockade. eh eh when did that start in Nigeria? last time I checked, Governors still enjoy immunity from ANY legal proceeding.
Someone should pls remind GEJ that only change is permanent and only the coward look for power at all cost but power comes to the men of valour.
What right does a state Commissioner of police has to stop an Elected Governor his Freedom of Movement into d govt house just like entry into your house breaches the right of your neighbour.
handwork of Jonah
9/13/2013 3:48:03 PM
Let Gej try this with Kwankwanso or Babangida Aliyu, why harras only Ameachi, try the other renegades too nah! 10 years of Gej govt is a disaster to any nation, he has spent 4 years already with a absolutely nothing tangible to show, so he needs to weep up ethnic and religious setiments cos thats the only way Gej can win an election in Nigeria.
. Arant nonsense
9/13/2013 3:57:51 PM
if this is true,we should all say goodbye to democracy.Can someone call this shoeless man to order. Am beginning to regret voting for him. He is seriously misusing power. I just pray that he is not slapped out of Aso Rock by the military because sincerely speaking nothing willl happen.
no be today
9/16/2013 7:06:30 AM
Like obama inherting bush ecomonical fcuk up. How do you expect gej to fix in only four years the mess the northern rulers (parasites) created in 50yrs.

Atiku and ameachi take over in 2015 na only p********es and foreign banks will benefit. Who no sabi these two thugs waka. Abeg leave my slow water GEJ for me. uneccesary gra-gra does not translate into good leadership skills. We need leaders who don't think that a mans hard work on earth should only be rewarded in heaven. To hell with atiku and the north if ameachi want to follow these aboki to hell with him too
The devil is really at work!
9/13/2013 4:01:00 PM
Wow, whether he was denied access totally or asked to follow alternative route, what the POLICE did is totally wrong and unwarranted.
Many Questions arise:
1. Does a C.P have superiority over the governor?
2. Why must party politics be mingled with state affairs?
3. What did the POLICE achieve or wish to from this?
4. Is this not another Guiness Book of Record for the Nigerian Police.
typical Otuoke goat.
my bit
9/13/2013 4:06:55 PM
Looks like the Jonathan presidency is on a mission to self destruct.Jonathan is behind this as a result of amaechi's deflection from his pdp side...The military boys are watching...Nigerian politicians never learn from history.he incorrigible slowpoke is taking his lack of sense too far. This is not too good for our democracy. This is purely power tussle.
f*****h MAN
9/13/2013 4:13:21 PM
You have not seen anything yet, how wish they asked you to frog jump, everyday is you claiming to be what i dont know , why must it be you, mr complainant. why not follow the main gate , why the back gate, is he a criminal? Amaechi be careful of this your madness because too much of everything is too bad.
ignorance of f*****h presido
9/13/2013 4:17:21 PM
An elected official is denied access to his office by gun totting policemen . I wonder what will happen should the Military decide to deny GEJ access into Aso Rock. should there not be thorough investigations and publicized results before the police can take such action against an elected governor, Mbu is only trying to intimidate Amaechi period.GEJ has made the Amaechi project more popular than even his cassava bread project. The Anglican Archbishop of the Niger Delta Diocese has been missing for nearly a week.
Yet this so-called errand boy of a commissioner of police is interested in being used as a political pawn.

Sorry to say dis, but if u must know, i see dat architect from kaduna packing into aso rock come 2015. Let Gej quitely go home, or he wil be succeded lyk he did 2 his predessesor. Mark my words..
FG is oppressing him
9/13/2013 4:34:41 PM
FG also have superior, GEJ should know. I know one day monkey go go market and will not return. The "people" behind this are jokers and they will know who owns the power come 2015. Guns have never won the people and Nigerians will surely show them the way out of Aso when the time comes. As for Amaechi, the young man is becoming a hero everyday and gaining popularity and the solidarity of the electorates
it is wrong
9/13/2013 5:07:50 PM
By the provision of the same constitution, Section 215(4), the Governor or a Commissioner as directed by the Governor can issue directive to the CP subject to verification from the President. The implication is that there cannot be any security issue that the Governor should not know about. If there was actually a security situation, he should have been informed and he would have gone through the alternative routes, not when he got to the spot, which is the main entrance.

Please Ameachi may be bad but let us no condone what is bad. CP Mbu is acting ultra vires.
9/14/2013 4:14:21 AM
See me see ordinary Jonathan o, this is absolutely unacceptable by any standard, I would never have imagined Jonathan our president would go on rampage this far, Jonathan that cannot even spell the word " Nigeria" correctly.
Who are his backers, who are those in the bush beating the drum for Jonathan to dance ?
as far as I am concerned this is the dance of destruction. And those that are beating the drum for him should not stop, as there are new beats on the latest drum set.
Aso Rock dey open person eye sha !
Patience Faka, the odudukudu wife of GEJ as since become impatient.
True everyone is a political animal, but animals are more civilized than us human, when it comes to governing themselves. Or have you ever seen a dog built it's cage next to the lion's den ? That is what we call organization.
Nigeria speller
I said it so
9/14/2013 5:17:53 AM
Mrs madam for your left mind u have made a point na u sabi d drum drummer dancer d fact is amechi should behave since u can spell Nigeria well keep spelling it,Nigeria speller if u people think u can intimidate Goodluck Joe rethink b4 shame disgrace all of u,let him be Amechi man is a bad option for Nigeria someone that can do this to his person and why d gimmicks dividing pdp Congiled blood that sit don't belong to u leave our President,we all can see and if amechi don't behave himself pretending always to be the victim using barbaric mentality to f**l f*****h people he is the biggest f**l,he is not capable of been in any place of leadership slow position abuser of diplomacy.If u were Goodluck will u be happy with amechi behaviour pls go and pack somewhere my advice to Goodluck focus do something better for your people as u have been doing and make that amechi look f*****h check d military well so no body will rise from that camp u are Mr President if Obama feels threatened in any form u think he will sit and watch anyway amechi can't try dat with all his thug friends pretending friends.
They are all c***y
9/14/2013 11:48:11 AM

What did Nigerians expect from the likes of clueless,ineptitude,incapable,lawless,non-focus and incompetent president Jonathan with his arrogant wife Dame Patience Jonathan still in charge of vital Nigerian strategic central power?President Jonathan lacks the require leadership stature and intelligence capacity to occupy the sensitive position of the presidency hence,the chaos and political volcanic eruptions within PDP and nationally. .
northerners are parasites
9/16/2013 4:33:39 AM
Why is ameachi siding with these northern parasites?


gej is incompotent? What has the s****d selfish north done for Nigeria we can't compete international for nothing. Take your islamic agenda and leave us and our oil be.
