When Martin Luther the Augustinian monk was summoned on April 17th, 1521,  by Pappenheim, the marshal of the empire to appear before the emperor and  states of the empire to find out two things: “First, is Martin Luther  wiling to confess that the books which have been circulated under his name  are his?” “Second, is Martin Luther ready to renounce these books or part  of them?”

 

Rotimi Amechi, the executive governor of Rivers State, 'a man under the  iron heel of the presidency', is currently being summoned by the the Rivers  State political neophytes to appear before Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and Dame  Patience Jonathan, both has continue to make Rivers State ungovernable for  Rotimi Amechi. Rotimi in Yoruba translates ‘The Lord Is With Me”, taking a  close look at Rotimi Amechj’s political footprints, he has continue to  conquer his enemies along his path with fire.

 

Why has Rotimi Amechi become the most vilified governor? Theories, theses,  permutations, and political maneuverings has been adduced. From the  unfounded rumored vice- presidential bid, to his alleged supporting a  Northerner candidate for presidency in 2015, and disobeying Goodluck Ebele  Jonathan on his re-election as the Chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum  [NGF], an for privately addressing Rivers State people over the row between

 

Bayelsa and River States, in the wake of the sudden take over and ceding  of oil wells belonging to the Rivers People to Bayelsa State, kindly  remind President Goodluck Jonathan that, Nigeria lost close to $7 billion  dollars to crude oil theft with Bayelsa State, GEJ home state accounting for  about 87 percent of the crude oil thefts in Nigeria.

 

And as Martin Luther replied; "Unless therefore am convince by the testimony of scripture, or by the clearest reasoning  - unless I am .persuaded by means of the passage I have quoted - and unless they thus rendered my conscience bound by the word of God, I cannot and I will not retract, for it is unsafe for a Christian to speak against his conscience. Here I stand! may God help me! Amen."

 

If all these allegation against Rotimi Amechi are fabricated and woven around him to intimidate, coerce and to humiliate him, he should have his conscience bound by the word of God. In his commentary on the Book of Galatians, Martin Luther, the Augustinian monk wrote, "There must be people in high office, of course. But we are not to DEIFY them! The president, governors, NASS Members, the teachers, the scholars, the preacher, the traditional and religious leaders, father, mothers, and the person whom we are to love and revere, but not to the extent that we forget God, "Lest we attach too much importance to the person, God leaves with important persons offenses and sins, sometimes astounding shortcomings, to show us that thee is a lot of difference between any person and God."

 

Frankly, 'Table Talk', Nigeria politics is filthy, stinking puddle, full of the wickedest wretches in the world. Rotimi Amechi is being tried by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, his wife; Dame Patience Jonathan, Peter Odili, Nyeson Wike, River State COMPOL, and host of others, Rotimi Amechi is now caught in a violent thunderstorm as he walked through the rough terrain of Nigerian politics, would he be terrified? As Rotimi Amechi appear before PDP 'Diet Of Worms', in conformity with PDP rules and constitution by God's mercies, kindly conjure the president, his wife, Rivers State COMPL, Peter Odili, Nyeson Wike, and others to listen graciously to the defense of a because which you are assured is just and true!

 

Because you desire to see your days flow on peaceful and happily!
