---Northern Governors, Soyinka Stoned At Port-Harcourt Airport ---



Four northern governors were stoned at the Port Harcourt International Airport as they arrived the state capital for a solidarity visit on the governor, Rotimi Amaechi.

Also stoned was Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka who was also visiting the state for the umpteenth time. Incidentally, Soyinka has been a very frequent visitor to Rivers State in the recent past.

The youths who came together under the Grassroots Development Initiative (GDI) may have laid ambush for the convoy and started raining stones on the convoy as they were to move out of the airport vicinity.

The affected governors are those of Niger, Babangida Aliyu, Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako, Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso and Jigawa State, Sule Lamido.

A member of the GDI said the youths were angry that the governors, like the others who have been visiting the state since the crisis started, were coming to take away the state’s money that would have been used for development.

According to him, the youths were also angry that Soyinka was becoming a regular guest in the state. Only recently, Soyinka was quoted as saying that the president should be held responsible if anything happened to Amaechi.

The youths said Soyinka’s frequent visits were suspicious, hence their reaction, which they said would stop more people from coming on similar visits.
