First Lady Economical with the Truth – Amaechi
The government in a statement by the commissioner of information, Ibim Seminatari, said that such a thing never happened.
On Wednesday, while hosting some bishops from the Niger Delta, the first lady said, “This matter started as far back as four years ago at Anyugubiri in Okrika when I begged him not to demolish a part of Okrika but (that he should) dialogue first with the people.
“After that incident, he called the chairman of Okrika (local government) and sacked him for holding a reception in our honour; that boy was the first victim.
“He also put my people under curfew for nine months. I called him and pleaded with him but he refused. Then I began to hear all sorts of propaganda in the media against me; this is not the way.”
Speaking further, Ibim Seminatari said, “For us in Rivers state the wife of the President is a Rivers woman. It’s a thing of pride that a Rivers woman is the wife of the President. I have read the statement credited to her. It is important to know she is calling for peace. This shows clearly that some persons were acting without her consent. That is what her statement connotes.”
