Stop Whining, You lost Woefully – Wike Tells Amaechi

by on April 8, 2016
Rivers State Gov­ernor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has advised his predecessor and current Minister of Transport, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, to accept the reality that his All Pro­gressives Congress (APC) loss of the rerun elections and allow the state gov­ernment to focus on re­building the state.
Wike said the responsi­bility of reviving the state after the immediate past administration failed to use the N3trillion that ac­crued to the state under its watch is enormous.
At a retreat on strengthening capacity, efficiency and service de­livery for sustainable de­velop-ment for top gov­ernment officials at Onne Multi-purpose Centre on Thursday, Gov Wike said the administration has deployed resources and expertise to correct the failures of the Amaechi ad-ministration.
“I call on the former governor and leader of the APC in the state to accept the reality that the re-run elections has woe­fully been lost by his par­ty and that Rivers people have, again, overwhelm-ingly re-affirmed their confidence, trust and preference for the PDP.
“Therefore, spare us the agony of unnecessary hostility and allow Rivers State to move forward in peace and security. We expect you to use your high office and connec­tions to attract meaning-ful development projects to the state as I did dur­ing my time; not sense­less and unpatriotic dis-tractions. Enough is enough.
“All of us are aware of the sorry state of things in Rivers State before May 29 2015. Between October 25, 2007 and May 28, 2015 over three trillion naira accrued from all revenue sources to the state, yet, they did nothing tangible with that money to develop the state. Instead, they squandered and diverted most of this money into private pockets through bogus and ill-fated proj­ects.”
The governor noted that all key projects ini­tiated by the Amaechi administration were ei­ther abandoned or not executed at all.
