Rivers governor, Rotimi Amaechi, and his Bayelsa counterpart, Seriake Dickson, do not have the most excellent relationship.
When the former governor of Bayelsa, Timipreye Sylva was involved in a running battle with the president, leading to his loss of the PDP ticket, Gov. Amaechi was one of those who strongly rooted for the ex-governor over the incumbent.
The relationship between Amaechi and Dickson two took a turn for the worse following the dispute in 2012 regarding the Soku oil wells, which is claimed by both Rivers and Bayelsa.
Naturally, Dickson belongs to the pro-Jonathan camp in the ongoing war being waged between the Rivers governor and Aso Rock.
Speaking to newsmen last weekend, Dickson cautioned Amaechi to focus on running his state, and leave the running of the nation to the president who was elected to do so.
