2015 poll: I’m not running with Lamido – Amaechi
Rivers State Governor, Chubuike Rotimi Amaechi, has dismissed reports that he had been anointed by certain forces within the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP, to run for vice presidency in 2015.
 The report, which was published by a tabloid on Monday, quoted unnamed sources close to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, as having endorsed Amaechi and his Jigawa State counterpart, Sule Lamido, to run on a joint ticket as presidential and vice presidential candidates respectively.
 But in a swift reaction, Amaechi denied nursing any political ambition in relation to 2015. The governor, who spoke through his information commissioner, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, described the reported political ambition as the imagination of political speculators, which has nothing whatsoever to do with him.
 Semenitari said, “the information was shocking to us here in Rivers State because the governor has no such political ambition. He does not have any plan for 2015 as we speak.
 In spite of Amaechi’s denial of his joint ticket with Lamido, former Niger State Governor, Engr. Abdulkadir Kure, yesterday, blasted former President Olusegun Obasanjo for attempting to cause trouble in the North.
 Kure, who accused the former president of messing up the country, pleaded with him to mind his farming business and allow the North to sort out themselves, as they were capable of doing so.
