                                                         A chieftain of the Arewa Consultative Forum and leader of Arewa Community in South-South and South-East geo-political zone, Alhaji Musa Saidu, has cautioned Northerners against supporting the presidential aspiration of Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi.

According to the ACF chieftain, the minister was only pretending to love northerners, adding that his antecedent as governor of Rivers State did not attest to that.

Saidu, who spoke to journalists in Kaduna on Sunday, noted that all northerners residing in Rivers State could attest to how Amaechi treated Northerners, especially in areas of politics and appointments.

“Amaechi discriminately appointed Yorubas and Igbos as special assistants but declined to appoint any Northerner despite our long stay and role in the development of the state,” he said.

  Besides, the ACF chieftain noted that it was on record that Amaechi as governor of Rivers state, demolished mosques and cemeteries for Northern christians and Muslims as well as frustrated businesses of northerners in the state.

He appealed to Northerners not to allow the transportation minister to cajole them into voting him for the presidency in 2023.

The ACF chieftain who claimed to have lived in Rivers state for over 52 years, said, “Everyone knew when former head of state, General Yakubu Gowon and ex-information Minister, Labaran Maku came to Port Harcourt and begged Amaechi to rebuild the Mosque and cemeteries he demolished but he refused.

“You can imagine someone who could not unite Nigerians as governor, is now aspiring for the presidency. For god sake, what do you think will happen when he emerges victorious?

“I have been living in Port Harcourt for more than 52 years. All politicians including Amaechi himself knew me very well, and as such, I will never be deceived by anybody.
