The First Lady’s two-day visit to Rivers State ended in a fiasco yesterday.
All was well, until Dame Patience Jonathan and her chief host, Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi got to Okrika – the First Lady’s home town.

The governor was explaining by video his school project in Okrika, saying there must be demolition of some buildings to have space for the schools.

Mrs Jonathan cut in, grabbed the microphone and said the governor should reconsider the way he was going about the demolition. An attempt by Amaechi to explain the situation sent the First Lady boiling..

She shouted at Amaechi: "Listen!, you must listen to me!"

The governor was embarrassed, like a scolded school pupil. The audience hailed Mrs Jonathan, goading the First Lady on.

The President’s wife, however, described land as a serious issue in Okrika and told Amaechi to always avoid "must" when talking about waterfronts’ demolition. The governor never mentioned "waterfronts", but Mrs. Jonathan went on: "I want you to get me clear. I am from here (Okrika). I know the problems of my people. So, I know what I am talking. I do not want us to go into crises. We are preaching peace and we must maintain peace at any time.

"But what I am telling you is that you always say you must demolish. That word ‘must, you use is not good. It is by pleading. You appeal to the owners of the compound, because they will not go into exile. Land is a serious issue."

Downcast, Amaechi shunned a reception organised for the First Lady. The reception was, however, not on the programme.

Mrs Jonathan hurriedly left for Abuja. Her planned visit to Port Harcourt prisons, where the Chief Judge, Justice Iche Ndu, was expected to release some prisoners, was cancelled. So was her visit to the new Model Secondary School at Ebubu-Eleme, among others.

A civic reception in honour of the President’s wife was held at the Sharks Stadium, Port Harcourt on Monday. Her pet programme, Women for Change Initiative (WFCI), was launched.

This was followed by a state banquet/Award Night at the Government House, Port Harcourt, where the former Miss World, Agbani Darego, who hails from the state, and some women were honoured for their outstanding contributions to society.

As a mother, if she have any grudges with the governor about his policies and administration;
she should have called his attention in person and talk to him private. 
After all he has a wife like her in the house, and is bcos of her husband she is were she is today
has the pesidency sit not her, and not bcos of her husband was made presido,
what she did was bad.

her husband was once in the shoes of Ameachi, i didn't see what good he did to his people in bayelsa, she was the first lady then.
she should allow the man to do his work, after all they are preaching rule of law and separation of powers. Okrika is the governors
domain, let her go to abuja and sit down jare. for me d governor shuld demolish it again and again. who born monkey. the earlier
okrika people realise that land is no ones property but GOD, The better for them. what of abuja where she is enjoying herself? is it
not some ones land? it was force they use and collected the land from the indegine's.  i hail d Governor.

primitive people here in Abuja

That's the problem women has. This has nothing to do with you. You belong to Bayelsa now and not Rivers. Wetin come consign u with Rivers. Abeg go and be disciplined. I can see that my Presido is facing something in silence. Atleast Rivers State is far better now. The man Amaechi na ur mate? Abi as in good with ur husband? He can decide to discipline and lock u up

She did whatever she did impatiently. But come to think of it, how long should the owners of the land be humiliated and treated as outcasts in their own lands. We are in a civilian regime and not military regime where orders are barked and expected to be carried out like zombies. Our leaders should begin to learn how to treat their people with integrity.

I am one of the school of thought that believe the office of first-lady scraped, what good has these first ladies done to better the lives of an average nigerian women anyway other than to flaunt their highly expensive gold and attires. Madam first lady should publicly aplogise to the gov nd the entire people of the state for that show of shame.
