Wike attacks Amaechi for ‘fueling ethnic division’
Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has criticized his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi, for allegedly telling Igbo residents that if they supported Tonye Cole of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the March 18 governorship election, they would receive “compensation for abandoned property.”
Wike addressed the National Executive Committee of ‘Ohanaeze Ndigbo’ Worldwide on Thursday at the Government House in Port Harcourt.
The governor stated that in preparation for the upcoming gubernatorial election, the former minister of transportation reopened old wounds and stoked the flames of violence “to disrupt the prevailing cordial relationship and peace between Rivers people and Igbo people in the state.”
Wike questioned why Amaechi, if he loves the Igbos so much, could not implement such compensation during his eight years as governor of the state.
