Rivers Residents Boo Amaechi Over First Lady Mother’s Burial
It was a show of shame after the Rivers state governor Rt. Chibuike Amaechi was booed at the Omegwu International Airport who was on the hand to welcome the president, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan on arrival today.
According to some of the residents who spoke with this medium said their action was a result of the governor earlier directive to his Exco members, aides, wife including his supporters to boycott the burial activities of the First lady’s mother burial which commenced today.

They however expresses joy over the success of today’s burial activities as the people defied the governor’s order and exceedingly participated in the Service of Songs enmass, which it believes is a demonstration of the people’s love, support and acceptance of the President’s family and the PDP in the State.
According to the Party, “it is most regrettable that even the solemnity of such occasion does not appeal to the conscience of Governor Amaechi to the extent that he directed his wife, aides and Commissioners to shun the First Lady, and not to be seen around the venues of any of the mother’s burial activities. It is quite unfortunate that Governor Amaechi should display such laissez-faire attitude towards the burial of the First Lady’s Mother.
