Election; Amaechi fires back at Okocha

Rotimi Amaechi has blasted APC candidates who lost the re-run elections yesterday saying “hunger will kill you (people)”. This was in reply to the stinker given to him and credited to his former Chief of Staff and aspirant to the Obio/Akpor Constitency seat for the Federal House of Reps, Tony Okocha.

 Speaking at the Port Harcourt International Airport on his way back to Abuja, Amaechi said “its unfortunate that people who are contesting election are waiting for me to give them money before they can campaign. How can people be so wicked to themselves” he asked.




When a reporter read to him what Mr Tony Okocha said, including saying that he Amaechi talks too much and was responsible for their collective loss during yesterday’s polls, Amaechi replied “I doubt Tony said that, but if he did,, tell him that for waiting on my money, hunger will kill him too; You know I dont hide my feelings, thats why Rivers people love me”.
Also when queried for his response to the anger of APC members in the state who said “AmaechI’s Federal might is useless. We could have done better without the army that Amaechi brought” he laughed and replied “if you dont have something else to ask me, then you all should step back and stop following me”

At that point, his stern looking security details barred the press men and Amaechi walked to his waiting private jet marked JT56FTF .
It would be recalled that Mr Tony Okocha yesterday blasted Rotimi Amaechi accusing him of being responsible for their loss. He said: “We lost this election because Amaechi talks too much, Amaechi talks too much. l never liked his radio and
TV ranting because he was just talking before thinking. He exposed our plans and brought the eyes of the whole world on Rivers State through his needless media noise.”
He continued “Even the money we asked them to give us for the election, he said the money would be given to us after the election because, we used the money he gave us for 2015 election to buy cars. What nonsense!
He should have just released the money then remain in Abuja, instead of coming here to cause more problems for us.”
It would be recalled that the APC candidate at the Rivers state legislative rerun election for Obio Apkor Federal constituency at the House of Representatives, Mr. Tony Okocha reportedly blamed former governor and Minister of transportation Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi for the parties loss in the rerun elections. Mr. Okocha who was Chief of staff of government house while Amaechi was governor said this while speaking with friends and associates shortly after the results of the polls started coming in. .
He reportedly blamed Amaechi for ‘talking too much’ and ‘exposing their plans’.

In his words; “We lost this election because Amaechi talks too much, Amaechi talks too much, l never liked his radio and TV ranting because he was just talking before thinking. He exposed our plans and brought the eyes of the whole world on Rivers State through his needless media noise. Even the money we asked them to give us for the election, he said the money would be given to us after the election because, we used the money he gave us for 2015 election to buy cars. What nonsense! He should have just released the money then remain in Abuja, instead of coming here to cause more problems for us.”
