Former Rivers state governor, Rotimi Amaechi has given corruption evidences against incumbent governor, Nyesom Wike while challenging him to do same against him.
Amaechi, who is current Minister of Transportation listed contracts awarded to Wike in the state which he did not either complete or commence work upon.
Speaking on Sunday at an APC rally in Rumueme, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, ahead of the state and national assembly elections on Saturday, he urged Rivers citizens to vote for the All Progressives Congress during the election.
“I will bring evidence to show that Wike is corrupt. Wike did the Rukpoku/Eneka road during my tenure and did not complete it. I gave Wike the contracts to do all the roads around Aristle House (a hotel in GRA) but he failed to do them, I gave him 14 schools to give to Obio/Akpor people, he stole them, he lacks character,” Amaechi said.
Also speaking on the security situation in the state, Amaechi said, “When I was the governor, one thing that I kept thinking of was how to chase these criminals away but under Nyesom Wike, he meets with them. If Wike does not secure you people, the federal government will secure you. If he doesn’t want to be ignored he should go and secure you people because federal government will no longer tolerate these killings in Rivers State.
Amaechi further told his supporters not to be intimidated by Wike’s threats and come out to vote APC at Saturday’s election.
