‘Amaechi Stole So Much He Could Not Construct A Road To The Hometown Of His Political Mentor’- Wike
The past administration of Rotimi Amaechi has been described by Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike as years of misrule because the tenure saw to the squandering of resources meant for the state.
He explained that Amaechi could not even construct a road to the hometown of his political mentor, Chief Godspower Ake of the All Progressives Congress.
Governor Wike spoke during the 10th Anniversary Thanksgiving Service of the Omega Power Ministry in Port Harcourt and the Harvest Thanksgiving of Saint Luke Anglican Church , Rumuadaolu.
“Amaechi squandered the money of our people, using state resources to sponsor elections in other places. Because of the funds squandered by Amaechi, we are starting the development of statewide infrastructure afresh. For eight years, at a time that the state got approximately N20billion monthly, that administration failed to develop critical infrastructure,” he said.
“G..U Ake was Amaechi’s political mentor. Yet for eight years, he denied his community the required access road. For us, we will continue to ensure the development of infrastructure in all communities of Rivers State , irrespective of the political leaning of the people .”
He concluded that he has presented the political problem of the state before God, urging all Christians to pray fervently for the sustenance of the state.
