'I never served as a househelp' - Rivers 1st Lady, Judith Amaechi

During the 'celebrity read a book' session at the 2014 UNESCO World Book Festival which held in Port Harcourt recently, First Lady of Rivers Mrs Judith Amaechi finally addressed long standing rumours that she was once a housemaid. When asked by a student if the story was true, Mr Amaechi said the rumor was laughable and totally untrue
"There is nothing wrong being a housemaid. Its a process and a path to success but I want to state emphatically and unequivocally that I was never and had never served as a housemaid to anyone. It is unfair. This falsehood and our children must be insulated from lies and propaganda" she said.
She went on to say that though her mother died when she was 4 years old, she was fortunate to be trained by her educationist aunt who sent her to highbrow schools
"I had the priviledge of attending highbrow primary school, that is the Port Harcourt Primary School and I made one of the best results. I sat for Common Entrance and then I was admitted into the Federal Government Girls College, Abuloma. These are schools reserved for children of the influential and top echelon in our society. Will any housemaid be admitted into such schools? This is just an attempt to smear my reputation" she said.

To answer your question Dame Judith. Househelps can be sent to highbrow schools by their bosses.it all depends on how humane one can be. No one knows tomorrow. Life is so complex.

LOL FGCC reserved for top

The only FG school worth any merit/ prestige is QC/KC & even that is by academic ability not status silly woman.

Hate the snobbishness of response. Of course a housegirl could study at FGGC. They aren't dumb by virtue of their job you insecure woman. She probably was one that had her education sponsored by her boss. We had one housegirl that we educated from secondary school through to ACCA.

Mrs Amaechi, some househelps working for good people went to PHPS at the time you were there. I am trying to remember .... oh yes, you were Odili's wife's house help. Yes, Mary's house help and she helped you. It was while your husband was personal assistant to Odili at Pamo clinic that he saw you and started nyashing you. Please dont lie if you are from PH. PHC is a very small place and you know we know each other too too too well. Ah ah. No be say na now wey PHC don become big place. We talking eighties. ANywho, You were a househelp. You should be proud that you were a househelp and now you are the wife of a man who has siphoned all the remaining money from Rivers State, halved salaries of the lower class civil servants, joined and owns ogboni society, and changed the lives of many bad people so that they are now rich, and reduced Port Harcourt and its environs to a human development disaster. You are worrying about househelp name when your husband's legacy places you in the legion of lucifer. You never start.

Unknown said...

People should learn to mind their business. All you fools calling her a house help, The point is that, she is a first lady of a state in Nigeria and what are you if i may ask? you are simply nobody calling her names. well to clear your doubt, Mrs Judith Amaechi was never a house help to anyone. she grew up with Her mum's sister in Owerri, The Ndukwu 's family, it was the Aunty that gave her education. she met her husband while in RSUST in Portharcourt, she was still in the university and not Mary Odili's house as some of you claims. and to correct your silly comment that she is being mean and cannot send her house help to an highbrow school, I am a houshelp currently living with her, but do you know the honest truth? I am in the UK today studying my first degree and all thanks goes to her. God used her to change my story. She is not a proud person, I have lived with her for years, I was a maid, but yet treated like a sister. She is God fearing, Humble and jovial. Always learn to ask questions before you Judge. Believe it or not, but all i can say is that, what she has said in her speech was nothing but the whole truth. thank you for sparing some your time to read this and God bless.

Anonymous said...

Linda, reading the comments from people here today makes me realize the real extent to which Nigerians lie through their teeth for absolutely no reason. I was a really close friend of Judith's, right up till when she got married and had her kids. I left the country and we have kind of lost touch over the years. Although we are no longer in touch, for how close we once were, I can categorically say and confirm that she was never a house help at any time in her life. For those claiming she was a house help for the Odili's, please let them explain at which point, she left her Aunts house and started working for the Odili's. Was it when she was at University? or perhaps when she was doing her NYSC in Shell (P-H)? As this was about the time she got to know them through her soon to be husband. Have you notice that absolutely NOBODY has posted any comments claiming they who went to primary or secondary school with her and has spoken up to say that she was a house help?
Having been close to her, I cannot get my head around the nasty comments that have been made without any foundation whatsoever. I have been friends with her from PHPS,FGGC Abuloma and through our university years even though we went to different Universities. She has always been a loyal friend that would speak up for her friends if she heard anything bad said about them. She has managed to keep herself grounded and real even in the face of the big change that life as a governors wife has brought. I notice mean comments about her simplicity /dressing and wonder what it would take to win people over, (not that I think that is what she is doing because from what I can see she is still just being her normal self). To Judith I say, continue being yourself and don't let people get you down, as whatever you do, they will always find things to criticise. To you Linda I say, the schools she went to are common knowledge, so it will not be difficult at all for you to find old schoolmates of hers and become the bloggist that put to rest these rumours once and for all.
For the rest of you coming up with mean spiteful comment I say - spare a moment to think about the missing girls and perhaps venting your vile against their abductors, could help make a change to the situation because you all certainly seem to have enough vile in you to have an impact.

Anonymous said...

Port Harcourt primary school was the best in Port Harcourt in it's day's and only became the 2nd best when the University opened their demonstration primary school. Also FGGC Abuloma was comparable to any other top school in the country in Nigeria right up to the eightie. For those shooting their mouths off, you are either showing your age (you are young and only know about how things were after standards slipped) or you were not in the know (your knowledge of the world outside your hamlet was picked up 2nd hand from your Lagos cousin), so you are speculating on how you think things were (how else would you have someone say "the only FG school worth any merit/ prestige is QC/KC"?).
You are aware that Agbani and Munachi both attended FGGC Abuloma, so that should give you an idea of the sort of girls the school produced.

Anonymous said...

For those of you criticising her rebuttal, I don't know how any of you would react if people have been spreading lies for a while that you were a househelp.If you really believe you would come up with a better way of setting the record straight, please detail just how you would have worded it. Since you are all sitting on your high horses criticising her response, please tell the perfect way in which she should have responded.

Anonymous said...

Seriously Linda, you need to ask clarify from some of her former classmates/schoolmates, stop allowing the vile malicious comments and POST A HUGE APOLOGY to her for the comments from some of your followers.
