There's the claim or should we just say that there's the revolving gist in town, that things might not be as rosy as it used to be for this billionaire Niger Delta Chieftain again. The rosy times they say, might have reduced drastically.
According to the gist, the funds that used to rain in before in torrents, might have become a drizzle now.

The purveyors of the gist are saying that the very lucrative contract that Chief Emami had been doing all this while, which rakes in major money is set to expire come April 2014 and due to some reasons not given, might not be renewed and this might spell a great blow for the finances of the moneybag.
While this situation is on his mind another stress that he is said to be facing now, is how to calm down some certain elements that used to be under his control, who seem to have now become a law to themselves. Someone even said that some form of in-fighting has been on going underground, that might proven costly for the Chief. Even highbrows might have been raised over some of this recent unrest, to the extent that the powers that be, are even said to have been asking questions.
These gist merchants even claim that to show that things have turned a bit awry, the Akulagba 1 unlike how he used to prefer staying more in Warri, might have now moved more to Lagos & Abuja.
While the gist mongers, that those that know Ayiri very well have tagged jokers are claiming that there's a money shortfall; we heard that just before the last quarter of 2013, Chief Emami apparently spent close to a million dollars (that's about N160 million Naira then) on one of his main pastimes; buying exotic cars, many of which already litters his very impressive garages (he owns 2 Rolls Royce Phantoms and various other super cars); he also owns a super yacht on which Tuface & Annie Idibia rode in Dubai last year and there's the 'speculation' that he 'might' have even bought a private jet late year. (Not confirmed)
For a man who owns a tank farm (which some say is not working) and is supposedly allowed to lift crude, we find it hard to believe he might be going broke!!!Even if he is now, it might just be a temporary set back.
