Wike Slams Amaechi As Failure In Project Delivery

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State on Saturday slammed his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi as “a failure” in delivery of projects in the state.

Wike said this when he commissioned the Rukpakwolusi-Eliogbolo community new layout road in the Obio-Akpor Local Government Area in the state.

He claimed that Amaechi of the All Progressives Congress (APC) failed to construct roads and flyovers in the state, noting that he (Wike) built the road leading to the residence of the former Minister of Transportation.

Recall that Amaechi had on Wednesday reportedly said he constructed projects and built five flyovers in Rivers “without noise”.

Reacting the Rivers governor said, “I heard (a) few days ago, the former governor of Rivers State said that he did a lot of roads and flyovers in Port Harcourt, he didn’t make noise, then why the noise? I didn’t see the flyovers he did. If he did the road, mention the roads.

“I have gone to your local government to do all the internal roads which you refused. I’ve given you a school in your community, even the house you are living, I did the road to your house.

“Let me even tell you why we should celebrate. In May 27, 2015 when he was celebrating his birthday, he said our government would not have money to pay salaries talkless of projects.

“So, today, by the grace of God, we are not only paying salaries, we are not only paying pensioners, we are not only paying gratuities that he did not pay, we have gone beyond to carry out projects which he failed to do.

Wike alleged that Amaechi looted the state so that the government of his successor won’t be able to pay salaries but God in His infinite mercies did not allow that.
