Amaechi is my God – Andrew Uchendu

Chief Andrew Uchendu


A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, Chief Andrew Uchendu, has described the leader of the party in the state, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, as his God.

Uchendu was recently declared the winner of the Rivers East senatorial election by the state election tribunal.



The APC chieftain, who made this remark during the unity rally/thanksgiving organised by the Obio/Akpor LGA caucus leader, Mr. Chikordi Dike, on Sunday, said no Rivers son had contributed more to his (Uchendu) life than Amaechi, who is also the Minister of Transportation.

Uchendu said, “There is no Rivers son that has made the kind of contribution Rotimi Amaechi has made in my life. Wike said Amaechi behaves like a God, but the Bible said man is God to man.

“If Amaechi has been the instrument of elevation and empowerment of many young people who were at the grassroots and now in the highest level of political career, is he not their God? And if he has helped people who testify as we are testifying today, for me, Amaechi is my God.

“I must congratulate the new leadership of Obio/Akpor caucus and other caucuses from different LGAs. Looking at the crowd here today, it shows that the house is settled for a serious business in 2019.

“By recovering my mandate, Rivers people now have an alternative voice. The truth is in the recorded memory in the political development of the Ikwerre ethnic nationality.

“Don’t forget when Obio/Akpor people said they were not going to accept Nyesom Wike for his second tenure as the chairman of the council, Amaechi went on his knees at the residence of the late Eric Asor at Elelewon and pleaded on behalf of Wike to be given a second chance.

“And finally the people accepted, from chairman to chief of staff and then minister; how else can a man be a god to man?”

Meanwhile, the state chapter of the APC has insisted that there is no disunity among its members.


The state APC also dismissed claims in some quarters that there was a crack in the APC following the dissolution of the party’s caucuses across the state by its leader and Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
