Consequent of his birthday celebration that was held in Port Harcourt yesterday, where some social media activists and bloggers on APC’s payroll were invited, Gov Rotimi is livid about the outcome of the whole event, which has become an embarrassment to him and his party, APC.
Information filtering in from Port Hacort says; Amaechi was said to have thoroughly tongue lashed the middle man of the invitation, one “Femi Adeoya” for bringing immature and “never see money before people” (quoting Gov Rotimi Amachi) who ran to town to spread news of the largesse they got from Amaechi.
Amaechi is said to be embarrassed by the whole incident has it has become a big scandal on social media, so much that he has been bombarded with phone calls from other APC stalwarts, including Mallam Nasir El-Rufai and Gov Babatunde Fashola of Lagos, who are quarrying the handling of the issue and why he chose to deal with such incompetent people.
From yesterday’s event, it was gathered that, the highlight of the event was a dinner hosted by Gov. Amaechi and where cheques of N5 million each was presented to the as initial payment for the task ahead. The trip for each of the attendees was also an all-expense paid trip and they were lodged in five star hotels – Presidential Hotels, Port Harcourt.
Meanwhile tongues have been waging in government quarters and civil service in Rivers state, as civil servants and public office holders in the state have come hard against the move, referring to it as a waste of tax payers money.
On the other hand, social media in the past 24hrs has been awashed with the unveiling of the so-called bloggers, who have now been referred to as “hungry pocket activists”
Godspower Etinosa Igunma, a social media activits said: When IBB told the world dat “The Nigerian youth is useless, cannot lead”, he was actually referring to these ones. Femi Adeoya and co are SLIMMY Patriots.
In her defence, one of the “paid agents”; Victoria Ibezim-Ohaeri lashed out at one of her critics:
“Adeyinka…I abuse you..I curse you…your mother…your father….and your entire lineage…All of you will perish like Sodom and Gomorrah…You are an idiot…a big fool. Next time I see my name featuring on your timeline, I will personally locate you and beat you up and show you what Igbo girls are made of…” – Victoria Ibezim Ohaeri
On his part, Paul Achalla said: What an economic crime against 170m Nigerians by Gov Rotimi Amaechi and his online APC sycophants …..?
Give 20 Onitsha or Aba Traders 5M Naira they will create 1000 Jobs in a year.
But our brothers and sisters masquerading themselves as activist pocketed the same amount alone without impact on the economy.
There is God ooooooooooooooooo. #Bringourback5m.
