Ahead of Saturday's governorship election, former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has told Rivers State people that they are the problem in the state and not Governor Nyesom Wike.
Amaechi said this while calling on Rivers people to come out and vote, stating that it's the only way to put an end to misrule by the Wike-led government.
The former Rivers State governor spoke on Wednesday during his campaign visit to the popular Mile 3 Market in Port Harcourt and electoral wards in Etche and Ikwerre Local Government Areas to canvass voters for the APC's Governorship candidate, Tonye Cole.
Amaechi said, “Wike is tribalistic. Wike doesn't even support the Ikwerre people, Wike supports only himself and his pocket, and his garrulous mouth. We'll win. You need to come out and vote and make us win.
“People are tired of Wike and his stealing…If he has shame, he wouldn't have gone on national television and say when Atiku was demonstrating at the INEC office, he was drinking 40 years old whiskey. Is he well?”
He added, “Wike isn't our problem, you're the problem. If he comes here now [with money], you start dancing. If Wike gives you ten million naira and when you give him power, he steals one billion naira. Wike has abandoned everything, schools, health centres. In Rivers State, Wike is the contractor and all the money is in his pocket.”
