Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers state, has alleged that Rotimi Amaechi, former minister of transportation, worked against the presidential bid of Bola Tinubu.
Tinubu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), won the presidential election held on February 25 and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has issued him a certificate of return.
Amaechi, a former governor of Rivers, is a member of the APC. He contested the party’s presidential primary in June 2022 but lost to Tinubu.
The former minister of transportation was not actively involved in the campaign trail of Tinubu despite being a member of the council.

Speaking on Thursday during a broadcast in Port Harcourt, capital of Rivers, Wike said Amaechi and Tonye Cole, APC governorship candidate in the state, “actively” worked against the election of Tinubu.
“Rotimi Amaechi and his protégé, Tonye Cole, actively opposed the demand for power shift to the south and worked against their party’s presidential candidate in Rivers state,” Wike said.
