Why I didn’t concentrate development projects on South-South – Jonathan replies Amaechi

President Goodluck Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan has said his failure to concentrate on development in the South-South zone where he hails from was a clear indication that he was a transparent leader.
The president stated this at the presidential rally of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State Wednesday while responding to the claim by Governor Chibuike Amaechi that he (president) had not done anything for the zone since he assumed power at the centre six years ago.

Mr. Amaechi has repeatedly asked the people of the zone not to vote Mr. Jonathan in the February 14 presidential election because of the president’s refusal to site any tangible project in the zone.

Amaechi’s criticism, a challenge – Jonathan
