Amaechi failed as minister, says Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi, was a total failure as Minister of Transportation, saying he brought nothing to his state.

Also, he took a swipe at Amaechi, saying the Rivers State Government did not give state burial to late four-time Minister Alabo Tonye Graham-Douglas, and Amechi did nothing when the elder statesman was ill.

Wike spoke at the inauguration of the re-constructed ultra-modern seven-story office complex in Port Harcourt on Monday.

He said even the Rail Line, done in other parts of the country under Amaechi’s supervision, never got to the former Minister’s state while he held the position for seven years.

Wike said as a Minister under former President Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, he attracted a lot of development to the state and gave grants to some tertiary institutions in the state and wondered why Amaechi, who was termed a super minister, could not do the same for his state.
