Former Rivers state Governor and current Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, has said incumbent Governor of the State, Nyesom Wike as “cry cry governor.”
Amaechi disclosed that while in office as Governor, the then President assaulted him with military and police men, he however stood his ground and fought for what was right.
The transport minister sternly advised Wike to “Fight for [his] right”.
He gave the admonition during his meeting with members of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Eleme kingdom, Rivers State.
Amaechi maintained that the All Progressives Congress, APC has no plans to rig Rivers state elections, noting that President Muhammadu Buhari will not allow it.
“Fight for your right. I fought for my right (during the Jonathan’s administration) when the President was molesting and harassing me, I got up, mobilized Rivers People and we fought for our right.
“We would not have won Rivers governorship because they rigged everywhere, wrote results and brought army and police to chase us away.
“Now there will be voting. They shouting and crying ‘police o, army o; INEC o just because they are scared of what they did to us (APC).
“President Buhari will not allow that happen. He will not allow any police man to stop anyone from voting.
“That person is there shouting ‘INEC, police’ while he was inside INEC building the day of election and they were writing results and we didn’t complain. Now he is shouting ‘INEC o, police o’ because he is afraid.
“But we’ll follow the law; we shall vote on that day and get our people to vote for us. If we win, we thank God.
“If he wins, we thank God. It will be free and fair. Let him stop crying because its too early. When a man starts crying, it means he is afraid.
“Did I cry about President Goodluck Jonathan? I didn’t cry, I came out to fight for my right. But this man is crying because of ordinary one police CSP every day.
Amaechi also accused Wike of having sleepless nights over him [Amaechi].
“What do you call him, ‘cry cry governor.’ He is a governor with one agenda, namely ‘Amaechi.’ He sleeps and wakes, he dreams of Amaechi. He has no adviser. He sees me in his dreams. You know I’m a Catholic, there are powers they gave to us to fly at night to go and meet them.”
