Rotimi Amaechi, governor of Rivers state, declared on Tuesday that he never knew he would be governor.

Amaechi, who was speaking at the inauguration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign in Port Harcourt, said his enemies tried to get him out of office, but they failed.

“I thank God because I never knew I would be governor. Today, I am governor by the grace of God. Today, I have stayed in office till 2015,” he said.

“By this time last year, the men who thought they were God thought I would have been removed as governor. By this time last year, men had received money to remove us from office, but the God we worship never allowed that to happen.

“Now they are the ones struggling. We told them that there would be this time when they would be looking for our votes.”

Amaechi accused the Peoples Democratic Party  (PDP) of fanning the flames of violence, alleging that an APC delegation heading for the Port Harcourt event was shot at by gunmen suspected to be PDP thugs.

“The PDP believes in guns; we believe in God and man. We shall stand to face their guns,” he said.

“I assure you as governor, if we stand together, they will do nothing. It is not enough to gather; get your permanent voter cards and vote.”
