PHOTOS: Differences Settled? President Jonathan And Gov. Amaechi In Warm Embrace in Port Harcourt
The political difference between President Goodluck jonathan and Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi which got to its peak on Wednesday during a presidential dinner in Abuja on Wednesday was temporarily put aside when the President paid a visit to River state on Saturday.
Amaechi had been under the constant persecution of the President since indications emerged that he is likely to run as a vice presidential candidate in the 2015 presidential election. This took a new dimension when governor Ameachi won the Nigeria Governor’s Forum, NGF election against the desire of President Jonathan.
On Wednesday at a presidential dinner organized by the president in Abuja, the President’s security detail prevented Rivers State governor, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi from shaking hands with him at a presidential dinner last week in Abuja, thus signaling further cracks in the relationship of the duo.
This difference was however put aside today as the President and the governor were spotted together in a warm embrace.
Amaechi met the President at the Port Harcourt International airport today and both men hugged each other in full glare of journalists, supporters and a faction of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) led by a Minister of State for Education, Nyesom Wike, who is an indigene of Rivers State.
Jonathan was returning from his village of Otueke in Bayelsa State where he commissioned the Otuoke Comprehensive Hospital and visited the Federal University, Otueke.
He made a brief stop-over at Port Harcourt where his Presidential Jet was parked at the airport en route.
