'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.
