Wike and Amaechi Fight Dirty In Port Harcourt


Rotimi Amaechi, the former Governor of Rivers State and Minister of Transport, has stated that he will not enter issues with his successor, Nyesom Wike, the new governor of the South-South state.

For many years, Amaechi of the APC and Wike of the Peoples Democratic Party have been at odds over a number of political issues that affect the state.

Wike accused the APC-led Federal Government of protecting Amaechi from prosecution over the misappropriation of proceeds from the selling of some state properties on Wednesday.

“People gave you an opportunity,” the governor had said. You sold all of our assets. And people in this state are talking about the government, which claims to be combating corruption and protecting citizens. You (Amaechi) sold our house for $308 million and held $208,000 for us.

That is the sort of person who parades themselves in government; shame on a government that claims to be fighting corruption.”

The minister was also accused of calling Wike a “drunk,” but Amaechi said on the television show that he never called the governor a “drunk.”


“I didn’t say it; that would be disrespectful to a governor; I just said that I don’t make remarks when under the influence of alcohol,” the minister explained. Some people perceive what I say as meaning.”

“I don’t think I want to discuss the governor’s issue; I’ve made my case, and I’m moving on. I can’t bring myself to be that low because he was my staff. I’ve served as a governor, a speaker, and a minister. I served as the chairman of the Governors’ Forum for two terms. When I was a speaker, it was the same. Why am I talking about him (Wike) now?” Amaechi inquired.
