Amaechi shun Patience Jonathan’s Port Harcourt event

Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, and his wife, Judith, on Wednesday shunned the inauguration of the South-South Zonal Secretariat of the Women for Change and Development Initiative by the wife of President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience.

Apart from the governor and his wife, other top officials of the Rivers State government also boycotted the occasion which was held in Port Harcourt, the capital city.

The source said:
"We sent a letter of invitation for the governor and his wife across to the Government House in Port Harcourt one week to the event, but as you can see, no single government official was present at the occasion.

But Amaechi's wife said she was never invited.
The governor's wife, who spoke through her Press Secretary, Dike Bekwele, denied knowledge of the event.

Bekwele said, "It is not correct for anybody to say that the governor's wife was invited. The truth is that the organisers of the event did not invite the state government.
"In the past, the governor's wife used to attend the occasion in Abuja or any part of the country. I think there is more to why they refused to invite the state government to the occasion."

Meanwhile, Mrs. Jonathan, at the WCDI programme, charged Nigerian women to train their children and make them useful to the society....
