Former Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, on Saturday, warned his successor, Mr. Nyesom Wike, against taking God for granted.
He also explained the reason behind his refusal to appear before the judicial commission of inquiry set up by Wike to probe his administration, saying the panel was illegal.
Amaechi, who made these views known while speaking with his supporters and members of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, stated that he would only appear before the probe panel if Wike followed the law.
According to him, Governor Wike had already pronounced him guilty in the presence of members of the panel and vowed that he would seek redress in the court.
He insisted that he would not appear before the Justice George Omeriji panel until an independent person or body was called to handle the probe of his administration.
Amaechi said, “Nyesom Wike was not afraid of God in the past; he never went to church. Today, he is going on bended knees to the same God we worship. Don’t take God for granted because if we don’t go back to God to remind Him, God may answer his (Wike’s) prayers”.
Recalling how his relative was allegedly killed in front of Wike’s father’s house at Rumueprikom, the leader of APC in Rivers pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to prevail on the Inspector-General of Police to investigate the deaths in the state.
He said, “We are asking the Federal Government to investigate it; we have written, asking for investigation but nothing has happened yet. We hope that the President will call on the IGP to investigate what happened with his policemen. We need the IGP to investigate so that people don’t encourage impunity”.
