Emperor Amaechi’s New Jet

By on October 26, 2012

Bombardier Global Jet

Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi has had a rough couple of weeks. It started with the murderous villagers in the Aluu community and their wickedness in cutting short the life of four University of Port Harcourt students in a brutal fashion.

Then the floods arrived, displacing tens of thousands of Rivers State residents, depriving them of basic human necessities like food, shelter or clothing.

All these series of tragic events put Governor Amaechi in a state of depression. As the leader of his state and his people, he was saddened by the dark events and needed something to cheer himself up. What better than a $50 million private jet? The Governor, according to Saharareporters, recently took delivery of a brand new Bombardier Global 5000 (N565RS).

People may say Amaechi doesn’t care about his people with such a gesture, in the same way American ip-hop star said George Bush doesn’t care about black people after the Hurricane Katrina disaster, but Amaechi does care.

Rumor has it that every time Emperor Amaechi boards one of his private jets, he thinks about the poor and illiterate people of the Aluu community, or the 12 souls that perished in the floods in just one local government community, Ahoda. He sees himself soaring above them like Superman without supersonic hearing unfortunately, or he would swoop down on them to rescue them from impending disaster now past.

Amaechi likes to fly in style

People grieve in different ways, when a fat girl is dumped by her boyfriend or upset for some other reason, she will eat ice-cream to console herself. Never mind the fact that the ice cream is adversely affecting her body mass index and weight adversely. We must remember she got fat for a reason, she likes the taste of sweet things.

So how can we expect less of the Emperor? He is after all a human being, and after banning okada in his state earlier this year, he has to ensure that he has a more convenient alternative.

Amaechi likes his jets and if Jay Z, Ifeanyi Uba or David Oyedepo can have one, then by God and by Federal Allocation sharing, he must have one too. Rivers State has enough money to have several private jets. The people of Port Harcourt understand that their governor must fly in style and in private, whilst they worry about jobs, food and minimum wage because that is not really in his purview as their leader.

    It is sad indeed that a country with very high poverty rate, poor or non existent infrastructure, lacking basic medical facilities, low level and standard of education would have a governor of a state using public funds to buy himself a private jet to fly the world away from the rut in his state backyard. They prefer to showcase their development on tube rather than on ground, moving around in swagger like an emperor facing cameramen. I had respect for this governor but he has certainly goofed in his self adulation and I pity the image he is leaving as his legacy. May God help our country Nigeria
