2015: Patience Begins Campaign For Jonathan In Rivers State-PM News, Lagos

Dame Patience Jonathan
By PM News, Lagos

Patience Jonathan has kicked off political campaign for her husband and Nigeria’s President, Goodluck Jonathan, ahead of the 2015 Presidential elections despite the warning by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, against such campaigns ahead of 2015.

Patience’s presence in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, southsouth Nigeria, has become a liability to residents and those doing business in the state since  Saturday, 15 June because of the security presence in the state capital.

She paid a courtesy visit to the Apiti of Rumueme and President-in-council Rumueme Council of Traditional Rulers and Chiefs in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State, Nyenwe-Eli Omunnakwe Nyeche Nsirim, on Tuesday, 18 June. While there, she called on the people of Obio Akpor to give her husband massive support anytime he declares his interest to re-contest for the presidency in 2015.

“My husband is also your son and by the grace of God, we’ll not disappoint you and will never forget you. I thank you people so much for supporting my husband. I thank you people for promising that if he comes out by 2015 that you will stand by him. I am happy to thank you people for that. I always know my people will always stand by me, your daughter, and my husband is equally your son.”

The President’s wife also advised the people to be law abiding because no meaningful development can take place in a crisis ridden area.

In his remarks, the Paramount ruler of the Rumueme kingdom, Nsirim, advised those who want to go to the North to do so but added that they should allow those who wish to remain in Rivers State enjoy peace in 2015.

“Those who want to drag us to the North because the position and money they are collecting should know that Rivers State people are not fish and nobody can sell us,” he said.

The paramount ruler is the father of Prince Timothy Nsirim, the suspended Chairman of Obio Akpor Local Government. He was suspended by the Rivers State House of Assembly for alleged financial misappropriation.

P.M.NEWS can report that since Mrs Jonathan arrived the state capital, a part of Government Reserved Area, GRA, which is a few minutes’ walk from Government House, Port Harcourt has been cordoned off by soldiers and with Police Trooper Vehicles manned by officers and men from anti-riot and anti-terrorist squads of the police.

Several roads within the area that links Mrs Jonathan’s mansion with the Forces Avenue, Isaac Boro road and Amassoma road have also been blocked.

Similarly, the road just after the office of the Department Of State Security Service, DSS, that also links to her new mansion where the First Lady is putting up close to a Port Harcourt school newly built by Governor Amaechi, has been blocked at both ends by anti-riot policemen.

The Commissioner for Education, Ms Alice Lawrence Nimi, was on Wednesday, 19 June, disallowed by armed soldiers from driving into the newly built Port Harcourt Secondary School, the venue of one-day advocacy and orientation workshop for teachers on the structure and effective implementation of the new Senior Secondary School education curriculum.

All attempts to drive her official car bearing Rivers Government plate number into the venue were scuttled. She was ordered  to park near Orosi House that was gutted by fire a few years ago, far away from the venue and trekked to the school to declare open the one day workshop.

Professor Godswill Obioma, Executive Secretary, the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council, (NERDC)who was represented by Mr. Omitade Salami, South-South Coordinator NERDC delivered the welcome address.

Meanwhile, the mansion of President Jonathan’s wife has become a rallying point for the anti-Amaechi opposition politicians.

@ Deri : The event was Shunned by All Government Officials !!

PDP cabal rolling out their huge drum in Rivers may have made the expected noise, but it was roundly scorned by every self-respecting politician in the State ...even with invitations! Goes to show who truly controls Rivers and the unwavering support the Chairman, NGF, Rt. Hon. Gov. Rotimi Amaechi enjoys among his huge followers. More importantly, it proves that the days of Ijaw influence in Rivers State are gone with the beach waves forever! The cheap campaign propaganda of the Hippolite clearly flopped and people were more angry with her disruption of normal business in the capital than anything. I expect another medical trip after this shock so doctors can flush her of the latest e-coli poisoning of mind and body. She stated her fake gratitude to the father of a PDP thug suspended for criminal activities, part of their running battle with Gov. Amaechi ...who dey kampe!

Homicidal teacher

You will have understood by now how I have come to view you as no different from the homicidal clerics who arm youths with kerosene and match, cudgel and knife, a few Naira in their beggars’ bowls, and dispatch them to set fire to structures of comradely cohabitation, of reflection, of mind enlargement, and destroy communities of learning. Your gospel of separatism goes beyond the geographical – in which I have not the slightest interest! – but the humanistic. The difference is in the weapon – in your case, poison, mind corrosion. The means – Internet, and its wide open, undiscriminating generosity. That is where you lay spores of poison, and doom future generations to a confinement of human relationships within the darkest corners of the

38years of hauas rule,9.5million Alamajiri.

What can Hausa Fulani lords present to Nigeria after 38years in power.

Is it 9.5million Almajiri?
Boko Haram?

Oh come on Northern,just for onec have a feeling for these children your fathers force to leave on street.

You just cann!t tell me that that is what Islam is all about.

MISCHIEF!

It's hard to believe Dame Jonathan didn't pay the traditional courtesy call on the Governor of Rivers state upon her arrival in PH and yet expected Amaechi to attend her activities. They have even lied that he was invited. It shows how our present leaders have fallen from the pinnacle of excellency and decency to one of lies & mischief. They are too personal with issues of state administration and are prepared to kill Amaechi becos of the position he took as the head of the NGF where he had to deliver the decisions reached at their meetings. Some governors lie that Amaechi is dictatorial, but they fail to say they were part of the decisions Amaechi projected at the presidency on their behalf. Respect, they say, is a two-way traffic. If you don't give, you don't also deserve.

Tundemess ati wahala this one was no campaign by AMAECHI abi?

An Address Presented By the Amanyanabo of Kalabari Kingdom His Majesty, King Prof T. J. T. Princewill, CFR, JP, Amachree XI On the Occasion of the Courtesy Visit on the Governor of Rivers State, His Excellency, Right Honourable Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, CON On behalf of the chiefs and citizen of the Kalabari Kingdom, I thank Your Excellency for making out time from your busy schedule to receive us today.

PATIENCE JONATHAN IS GRAVELY

PATIENCE JONATHAN IS GRAVELY HURTING THE PRESIDENT MR. JONATHAN NOW IN HIS FIRST TERM AND HIS RELECTION PROSPECTS IN 2015. IF SHE THINKS OTHERWISE AND PRAESE SINGERS AND HANGER ONS ARE CLAPPING FOR HER, THEN SHE IS IN CLOUD 9. THESE SAME PERSONS SINGING HER PRAISE NOW WILL BE THE VERY FIRST TO DESERT HER, WHEN 'GO 'NOR GO' THEN PATIENCE WILL SAY NA WA OH NA SO HUMAN BEINGS BE? BUT THEN IT WILL BE TOO LATE AND SHE WILL BE VERY LONELY. PATIENCE BEING VERBORSE IS NOT A GOOD ATRIBUTE IN POLITICS.

@tundemash compare and contrast GEJ's performance with Tinubu 2

The argument of gullible Yoruba youths has always been that GEJ is inadequate as a President and power must return to the North in 2015. But we are all acquainted with the facts that:

1. Fifty years (50) of Northern’s presidency ruined the railway system, but the two years (2) of Jonathan’s presidency has revived the railway systems.

2. Fifty years (50) of Northern’s presidency reduced the electricity generation from 24 hours per day to 6 hours per day, but the two years (2) of GEJ’s presidency has increased the electricity generation from 6 hours per day to 18 hours per day.

4. Fifty years (50) of Northern’s presidency destroyed the educational system, but 2years (2) of Jonathan’s presidency has resuscitated the educational sector.

5. Fifty years (50) of Northern’s presidency completely destroyed the Civil Service, but the two years (2) of Jonathan’s presidency has refocused the Civil Service for increase productivity.

Dame campaigning in rivers.

Let her take a trip to the UK and see if she will ever come back just like James Ibori.

@tundemash compare and contrast GEJ's performance with Tinubu

6. Fifty years (50) of Northern’s presidency replaced the professionalism of the Nigerian Armed Forces with ethnic patronage, but the two years (2) of Jonathan’s presidency has brought back professionalism into the Nigerian Armed Forces.

7. Fifty years (50) of Northern’s presidency tuned the Nigeria Police into glorified ‘mai guard’ institution, but the two years (2) of Jonathan’s presidency is reviving the institution.

It is obvious from the above that the two years of President Jonathan has done more goods than the fifty years of Northern’s presidency. We all agreed that the PDP as a political party is bad and evil. We also agreed that half of the PDP members have moved to the APC. It is simple logic that both the PDP and APC are bad and evil. What we really need is True and Fiscal Federalism.

No to Northern’s presidency in 2015 otherwise four more years for President Jonathan.

WHAT A PITY! THE END HAS COME

Jonathan to CONTEST AS President? What a biggest mistake. I CAN SEE THE END OF NIGERIA SOON.

@Oleku: Below are Dumbo's promises, u publish Tinubu's promises

@Oleku

U asked "What was Tinubu's achievement in his 8 years of governorship in Lagos?"

Only a fool like u would be comparing a gov position with that a President. Ye of little mind. It was not Tinubu that was voted as President in 2011 and promised so much. Below are Dumbo Jo's promises og 2011 with dates and achievements ... give us an update. I also challenge you to publish Tinubu's electoral promises.
http://saharareporters.com/column/non-governing-governance-3-4-mountain-...
Moron , u need to have visited lagos before asking that question. When Tinubu was gov,. there was no amnesty for creek rats like you then so no free laptop to browse so you wouldn't know there is another world aside the creek !

Typical of Patience Jonathan and her adult delinquency traits!

This woman, Patience Jonathan, will never cease to foolishly entertain with her errant behaviours and mannerisms; her disregard for authority and her disregard for the law established by the entire nation! Her pettiness is becoming glaring and childish! For example, protocol demands that she visited the Government House because that is the seat of the highest authority in the State but she preferred to visit local chiefs and minions. How does she then expect people to treat her husband if she cannot show respect to others? Now she has started political campaigns when the law says it is not possible to do so now! Again, she flouts the laws and expects other Nigerians to be law-abiding as she has admonished others in her visit! Patience Jonathan, you need serious training. Period! I wonder how you behave in your illegal First Ladies' Association.

WHERE IS SR COMING FROM SIBERIA

Mixed reactions have trailed the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to clampdown on politicians and political parties campaigning for 2015 elections. The Conference of Nigerian Political Parties, CNPP, described the development as unfortunate and a gross violation of the people’s right while the Congress for Progressives Change, CPC, accused the commission of insincerity with the order. But two Senior Advocates of Nigeria, SANs, Prof. Itse Sagay, Mallam Yusuf Ali and a constitutional lawyer, Mr. Fred Agbaje yesterday disagreed over the INEC’s order. Two of the lawyers, who spoke with National Mirror, endorsed INEC’s position restraining the untimely campaign by politicians and political parties.

I was taken aback last month

I was taken aback last month when campaign posters of Buhari APC floated the nooks and crannies of Abuja like wave. The news was on almost every national dailies including Vanguard and Punch except SR. I wasn't surprise though, because I know it will taint their hidden agenda if such news are reported on this site. Theirs is a mission of bring down the president using any available means possible. What's wrong if the first lady is canvassing for the full support of her people. Buhari can kick off his 2015 campaign but not GEJ abi. Let's try to be unbiased and sentimental in our reportings. This operation bring down the Ijaw man down must stop. Buhari and Tinubu can never be compared to GEJ's in terms of credibility. What was Tinubu's achievement in his 8years of governorship in Lagos?
