The Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike has aggressively blasts his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi who’s the current minister of transportation in Nigeria.
The governor wondered how a transportation minister who’s from the Southern part of country couldn’t consider bringing a reasonable contract to the region.
While Gov. Wike was speaking at Port Harcourt, he said that the minister hasn’t attracted any single rail project to any Eastern region where he came from, since he was appointed as the minister of transportation. Wike said that Amaechi was busy instead constructing rail line to Niger republic with the money he got from Eastern region.
In his statement, Wike said; “Since AMECHI took over as the minister of transportation, he has not attracted any single project to the Eastern region.
The already rail way line that link P.H to ENUGU is nothing to write home about yet AMECHI is proudly using the money gotten from our region to construct rail line to niger republic while we have nothing!.
However, the governor reminded the federal government of owing his state over ₦78 billion over the federal government projects he did in his state.
He said, “The federal government is still owing my state over ₦78b over federal projects I did in my state but instead of Amechi to look back home and at least construct a rail line that would link P.H to Calabar, UYO, Abia, ENUGU, ONITCHA, NNEWI, ASABA, bayelsa back to P.H, he is busy behaving like a child.”
Wike recounted how good, it benefit the state and the entire region, if the Minister of transportation could have reason maturely to attract development in the region.
Wike said, “With a rail line, it will be easy for our people to go to ariaria, main market to buy their goods as easy as possible.
“All the federal roads in South East and south south is nothing to write home about while he is a minister for 5 years now.
Tomorrow he will come to tell us how he love NIGER Delta and igbo Land!. Shame to him!.” Wike added.
