The first-lady of Rivers State, Mrs Judith Amaechi, has denied rumours alleging that she was once a housemaid to former Governor Peter Odili. She revealed this when asked by a student if the story was true during the ‘celebrity read a book’ session at the 2014 UNESCO World Book Festival which held in Port Harcourt. Hear her:
“I have never been a housemaid, my mother died when I was 4 and my Aunty, Mrs. Ndukwe took care of me, I got the best education, I began my education in the North, attended Port Harcourt Primary, FGGC Abuloma and then studied Urban and Regional planning at RSUST.
“My aunty and her husband are disciplinarians and educationist, my mum is from Ndoni in Rivers State and I married my husband in 1993, I was never a maid to anyone.”
