Rivers Crisis: My Only Condition For Peace With Amaechi By Wike

Amaechi vs WikeSupervising Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike has given his former ally and Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi condition for peace.

Wike, who has been at loggerheads with his state governor over the control of party structures in the state and Amaechi’s perceived opposition to President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term ambition, was speaking at a Grassroot Development Initiative, GDI event that took place at Omoku, Ogba-Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Council in Rivers State on Sunday.

The minister said if Amaechi wants to take back control of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, structure in Rivers State, he should first relinquish the Supreme court mandate that was given to him in 2007 to former Governor of the state, Sir Celestine Omehia.

The Minister noted that without doing so, Governor Amaechi should just accept defeat.

Wike, who is the grand patron of GDI said, “No amount of going to another state to give condition can change anything. What people don’t understand is that they will push some people to the wall and the people will react.

“We are good people; we are willing to make peace. We are willing to surrender the party structure if you will also surrender that mandate the court gave you in 2007. Give it back to the man who owns the mandate. The time has come; there is nothing you can do again.

“Let me tell you something, anybody who says Jonathan will not come back, let him go to the state which he belongs to. Rivers State has made a decision that come 2015 we will back our son, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan”.


  1. Your problem is Emaechi instead of concentrating on your work.I don’t know why people do things that is not their work.You Wike or wetyn be that name of yours what concern you and the longerheadness between Mr President and Emaechi? Did Mr President tell you that he can’t fight Emeachi or what? Instead of planning on what to do in other to bring an end to ASUU strike,you are doing something different. Or was it because your children are not studying in Nigeria? Or was it because you don’t want Nigeria to move forward?.Emeachi is really a strong man,upon all the pressure getting from members of PDP 1 and some socall ministers yet,he is free.Still he (Emeachi) alone give them headache.Wake (beans in Hausa) or Wike you better do your job as a Supervising Minister of Education and stop mindling in affairs that has nothing to do with you…Thank You.(Yuppie)

  2. Why people concern there self with what is not ur problem,u are a supervising minister.but ur tryien to engage ur self in Amechi and mr president,u sopurse to advice the president to end strike ASUU,not putting u self in another people problem.

  3. Is very obvious were are in big problem,♏γ̲̣̣̥ question for this wike is that is it supervising minister for education or supervising minister for actualization of mr jonathan second time,is very glaring this wike is just using conflict between mr president & gov amaehi as am excuse,what a stupid man a person which can’t solve his ministry problem,but planning to solve a state problem which is very clear there is no problem in river state.useless man he never said anything on Asuu & is a supervising minister on education.wike is a sycophants

  4. Mr president u a killing Nigeria education by sacking hardworking Rukayat and technically imposing your kins man who has absolutely nothing to offer except to confront hardworking gov on us.if u have no fear of GOD can’t you have mercy on Nigerian youths? Time will tell.

  5. Mr president, ur minister didn’t give ASUU condition for peace to save the future of Nigerian youghts but he is having sleepless night with parallel issues to his job.What a square peg in a round hole.
