Rivers State’s New Jet

The aircraft was bought for $45.7 million through a Trustee account in Utah.

The total sum of $50 which covers transportation and other fees was paid in full.

A Port Harcourt-based human rights activist has condemn Amaechi’s move to buy this new jet.

Here is what he said:

“This is an ungodly act,” said a . “Why should Governor Amaechi’s priority be to acquire a jet at a time the state is experiencing the worst flooding in its history, leaving many Rivers indigenes homeless?

All these wasteful spending is needless.

Why can’t he help the needy in the state by paying them monthly welfare allowance.

Naija Politicians! God is watching you o.

    This is crazy you, how could such an individual be elected Gov in Nig. Well I fear what will happen to this nation, if all our reps, keeps spending huge amount of money on frivolous things. For Christ sake, this man dont have conscience at all. $50m? This money, can be used to serve the people in the riverine area for a year and for life. I’m highly disappointed in him. ” to whom much is given much is expected off”

    If anything better describes the circumstance than unfortunate,then I’d rather say it’s perniciously abysmal that someone who once appeared on the public platform to declare that it was practically impossible for state governments to afford paying the then prescribed #18,000 minimum wage for the government-pauperized public servants, would after a few months decide to embark on a vulgarly showy and self-aggrandizing endeavour of buying a jet(the financial implication notwithstanding). It has ostensibly shown that we domicile in an insane society where some economic vampires who have nothing constructive to think about that to pilfer, plunder and milk the state purse to a point of economic serfdom, would just wake up one day and cart away the common good of the people for personal advantages.
    It is a shame that EFCC is a tool, meant for witch-hunting the power-infirm individuals…..a toothless dog as commonly known. This man is basically not a human-being since he doesn’t have any passion for the impecunious hoi-polloi.

    This is gross irresponsibility and miscondult in the highest order. How can a state Govenor that was democratically elected into a public office to serve humanity demostraite such animalistic and reprobate act by purchasing such an expensive air craft for just himself when there is infrastructurer decay in the state where he is govern as well as high increase rate of unemployment in river state and across Nigeria. God is watching….

    How can a governor buy an airplane under the pretext of using it to inspect flood raverged areas? Who’s money was used in purchasing this airplane? This is stealing of the highest order.. He should remember when flying in it, that anything that goes up must surely come down!

    it is unthinkable, callous and inhuman, for a peoples’ representative to change overnight and become a sucker. Rivers looks like grave yard during rainy season. tomorrow now somebody like him will come out again and ask for votes, and we listen to him. God will judge him.
