Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike has challenged his predecess and now Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, to state his achievements and contribution to the state.
His challenge came as a reaction to claim by Amaechi that he is the best governor the state has ever heard.
Speaking during his interview with AIT on Monday, September 28, he challenged the ex-governor to pinpoint a particular project he had carried out in the state, stating that if he was able to get would resign in his capacity as governor.
Wike said, “Rivers people will ask you, what will you tell us. You’re doing rail to Niger Republic, which one have you done in your state?
“As Minister of Education, I brought faculty of law to Port Harcourt. I brought N500 million grant to Ken Saro-Wiwa Polytechnic, I built so many schools. As a Minister, I’m proud.
“You’re a minister, tell Rivers people I brought this, mention one. If you mention one, I’ll resign now. Mention what you’ve brought to Rivers people to convince them. We’re too educated for you to go to Kalamari to incite them.Read more: Obaseki Is Free To Return To APC… – Nyesom Wike
“He said judges lost their voice. He’s right, why won’t they? A man who shut down the court for two years, NBA didn’t say anything. So, if he is now saying that NBA lost their voice, he’s right. Today, nobody talks about it that’s why he has the audacity to tell NBA they’ve lost their voice.
You went to a supreme court justice house to tell him the president is not happy with him, why won’t judges lose their voice?
I also heard him say he’s the best governor. I have no problem about that, he’s very right. If a man can close the court for two years, why would he not be the best governor?” Wike said.Photo Credit: Twitter
