GOVERNOR Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers State, and the state wing of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), are bickering over the frustrating unemployment rate in that axis of Nigeria’s oil and gas basin.
Amaechi blew the lid off the sleepy timebomb on Monday, in his country home, Ubima, in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state.

The governor was there to formally registering as a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), along with his wife, Judith, and thousands of unemployed youths.
Apparently jolted with the misery of the employable youths without jobs, he said he was in APC in a bid to secure them a better future, pointing out that his former party, the PDP, is incapable of rising to the challenge youth unemployment is posing. 
Amaechi said over 80 per cent of the tens of thousands youths in the state, defecting with him to APC are unemployed.
Reacting on Tuesday, PDP said they are impressed that the governor has for once admitted the high rate of unemployed Rivers youths under his leadership in the past six years.
