A huge crowd turned up for Goodluck Jonathan in Rivers State,where he made one of the strangest comments ever.Goodluck Jonathan said,if he has not done anything for the South South as Amaechi had said,it meant he was a transparent person.I just don't get that,he is actually saying,his excuse for not developing the area is because he does not want to be partial.Now that is crazy..you will see the statement further below..Joseph Yobo,along with his football,were also present,Nwankwo Kanu showed up too...see more after the cut
Earlier, governor Amaechi had tried to stop the PDP from using the said stadium citing an ongoing construction work ..However, armed soldiers reportedly took over the stadium on Friday night and were stationed there until yesterday ..
On Amaechi,president Jonathan said
“What I want to tell you and the rest of the country is that the director-general of the APC presidential campaign organisation, when he was in Yenagoa and when he was in Port Harcourt, mentioned clearly that the President had done nothing for the two states.
“Don’t worry. It is good news because people are saying that I concentrated development in the South-South. Bayelsa State was part of Rivers State. Then, if I don’t concentrate development in this state, that means there has not been development in Rivers and Bayelsa states.
“The DG (Amaechi) is telling Nigerians that I have not done this. That means that I am a transparent person. I did not allocate positions to my people. The DG would have been the very first person to expose me to the rest of the world; not just Nigeria. He would have taken me to America, to South Africa, to France, to UK, but that shows clearly that we mean well for this country.
