Rivers: Amaechi Denies Being At War With Gov Wike

The Minister of Transportation and former Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, has denied being at “war” with Governor Nyesom Wike.

He made this known while speaking on Channels Television breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily, on Tuesday.

The minister stated that his issues with Wike were due to the spate of insecurity in the state over the past four years.

According to Amaechi, “There is no war going on between Wike and I. It is like my friend Akpabio when we met the other day, I said it, we are not quarrelling.

“What is going on between Wike and me is the fact that he wants to run a second term. The fact is that he ran the first term in which people were killed.

“Today, he is accusing the army and not the police because they refused to take bribe from him.”

Amaechi noted that during his administration as Rivers State governor, he investigated and ensured the arrest of perpetrators of violence.
