Amaechi Wants To Impose Governor On Rivers – Wike



Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wine, has accused his predecessor and Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, of attempting to impose a governor of the people of the state.

This is as he declared that godfatherism is becoming a major political crisis impeding development across the country.

Wike, who spoke yesterday during an interview in Government House, Port Harcourt, said the struggle to impose a governor on Rivers people is the reason behind the conflict between him  and Amaechi.

The governor said: “I will not support anyone dictating what will happen in Rivers State.  The crisis you are seeing  is the struggle to bring a successor.

“Everybody who worked with him is bad. I held the home-front when he ran away to Ghana on exile and the other Senator he is fighting worked for him. If everyone that associates with  you  is bad, then something is fundamentally wrong.

“After spending eight years as Governor, someone wants to superintend on the activities of the state. This is not Lagos State. We are different.”

He regretted that some former governors and outgoing governors expend energy and resources to impose successors on their respective states.
