‘I Don’t Have Time For This!’ – Why Rotimi Amaechi Left Paul Okoye’s Wedding
Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, stormed out of the traditional marriage ceremony of Paul Okoye barely 30 minutes after he arrived, because the ceremony did not start on time.
Governor Rotimi Amaechi couldn’t understand why the event had not begun by 2pm when it was billed to start by 12pm.
The governor came in around 2pm and, as he alighted from his vehicle, his aides informed him that the event had not started and neither the couple nor celebrity guests had arrived.
He responded, ‘If we wait for some time and they don’t come, we will leave. I don’t have time for all this.’
The governor posed for photos before entering the hall. However, barely 30 minutes later, a visibly unimpressed Amaechi walked out of the hall accompanied by his aides and drove out of the event premises.
The marriage ceremony, which was billed to start by 12pm, did not commence till around 2:45pm.
