"Wike Is Like A Son To Me, I Cannot Engage Him".........Amaechi

Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transport and former Governor of Rivers state in an interview on Channels TV, says he cannot be engaged in a war of words with his successor and incumbent governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, because he sees Wike, as one of his sons.

The state has been experiencing unrest due to rival between these top politicians in the state. Last month, what would have resulted in a bloody crisis was averted when the security details of both men clashed while they were passing the same road in the state. Both of them have taken each other to the cleaners whenever they have the chance to.

In the interview, Amaechi says describe Wike as son and thus he cannot be engaging him. According to him, when he was the speaker of the state house of Assembly, Wike was just a local government chairman

'“He (Wike) was my staff; he is like one of my sons. Why should I engage him? He was local government chairman when I was the Speaker (of the State House of Assembly),” he said.

Speaking further, Amaechi said
“The governor has just one agenda – if he is in his toilet, ‘Amaechi’; if he is outside his toilet, ‘Amechi’… what baffles me is not the governor, it is the people. When I was governor, I used Rivers State’s money on projects in the state. If you visit the state, you will see the primary schools that we built. No matter what the governor does, the projects are there. I hired 13,200 teachers who are alive, I established primary schools, the primary schools are there. They are no longer maintained. When I was there, I appointed a contractor whose responsibility was to come to a school like the children.”
