Former Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi has taunted his successor, Nyesom Wike as having nothing else in his head than “Amaechi”.
Amaechi said this when he featured on Question Time, a programme on Channels Television, saying that Wike’s only agenda is “Amaechi”.
“The governor has just one agenda – if he is in his toilet, ‘Amaechi’; if he is outside his toilet, ‘Amaechi’” he said.
Mr. Amaechi, now Transport minister, denied having issues with Wike, comparing him to one of his sons.
“He (Wike) was my staff; he is like one of my sons,” Amaechi said.
“Why should I engage him? He was local government chairman when I was the speaker of the state.”
The minister boasted that his impact was still being felt in the state, particularly in the education sector.
“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,” he said.
“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 They are no longer maintained.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 school like the children,” he added.
