I can’t bring myself low to Wike’s level, Amaechi says

Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has vowed not to bring himself to the level of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

The minister’s reaction follows a series of verbal attacks by Wike.

The governor had said the infrastructural development being carried out by Amaechi’s ministry has political undertone.

Wike also alleged that the current administration is developing the Eastern railway line because of the 2023 elections.

According to the governor, the Federal Government is shielding Amaechi from being prosecuted for corruption.

Wike said although Amaechi overrated himself, he taught him a lesson in politics.

In reaction on ARISE Television programme this morning, Amaechi, however, said, “I don’t think I want to address the issue of the governor”.

He added, “I have made my point, I have moved on. He was my staff, I can’t bring myself low. I was a governor, I was also a speaker, I’m a minister. I was two-term chairman of governors’ forum. The same when I was a speaker. Why should I be discussing about him?”

Amaechi governed Rivers between 2007 and 2015 and Wike was one of his allies.

Wike had served as Amaechi’s chief of staff before he got appointed a minister of state for education.

He fell out with Amaechi in the buildup to the 2015 election.
