The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has alleged that the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike is a thief, who squanders money.
In a recent radio interview in Rivers State monitored by Daily Post, the ex-governor said, “Nyesom Wike is here to steal money, he was my chief of staff. We will chase Wike’s boys out of the water, now we have Dakuku Peterside as DG NIMASA.”
Speaking further, ‘If you see the money stolen by Nyesom Wike in the ministry of education you will be shocked. Everyday you wake up to find out that Wike has killed somebody.
‘Wike has collected N50bn; what has it done with the money?’
‘By this time when I was sworn in, I was already commissioning projects. Wike is so desperate that he can sell his mother. On the day of the re-run, I am ready for Wike, they should come out with their guns, we are ready for them,’ he said.
The APC stalwart also took a swipe at the former President, Goodluck Jonathan saying he hated people of Rivers State so much that he couldn’t release $1bn to clean up Ogoniland.
“Jonathan hated Rivers people so much that ordinary $1bn to clean up Ogoni land, he refused to pay.”
