Open Up On How I Won 2011 Governorship Election In Rivers State, Amaechi Dares Wike

amechi-wikeThe supervising Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike has been challenged by the Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi to open up on how the 2011 governorship election in the state was won and lost.

Mr. Amaechi, who has been having a long running battle with his former Chief of Staff since he became Minister of State (Education), yesterday in Port Harcourt, declared that Wike must show gratitude, since he brought him up politically.

The Minister questioned Mr. Amaechi’s much touted political strength stating that he became governor through the Supreme Court’s landmark judgment of October 25, 2007, adding that he knew how the governor’s re-election was won and lost in 2011; maintaining that party structure could not be bought.

Wike on Sunday at Omoku, the headquarters of Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Council, during the inauguration of the council and wards executives of the Grassroots Development Initiative (GDI), of which he is the grand patron, declared that he knew how Gov. Amaechi was re-elected in 2011.

But Amaechi, through the Chief of Staff, Government House, Port Harcourt, Chief Tony Okocha, said: “The minister of state for education ought to respect his office. I sympathise with those following him (Wike) about. He is using them to solidify his position in the Federal Executive Council (FEC).

“Wike abusing and attacking Governor Amaechi is to get support and earn sympathy of President Jonathan, because of the perceived disagreement between the President and Governor Amaechi.

“Governor Amaechi cannot pack and go, because he is performing excellently.

“Let Wike talk about how Amaechi did not win 2011 governorship election. Let him tell Nigerians how the election was won and lost,” he dared the Minister.

You are from Obio/Akpor how many people from your own community or LGA have you impacted their lives Positively since your appointments? Go and study well on how right you boss the Governor Amaechi should be acting in Rivers State. You all wanted to gain access to all security agencies in the state to continue to intimidate Rivers indigenes. God has vindicated his children from your impunity rather than use state funds to fight for selfish campaign when it should be used to create jobs for the state you use the state Surep fund to share to your loyalist in the state to gain followers from the state,tomorrow you guys would blame the Federal Government who realises cash for Capital projects rather so miscreants use it to fund touts and hoodlums while seeking for powers shame on you.
