RIVERS OF BLOOD!!! Amaechi Breaks Down In Tears, Announces The Immediate Resignation Of His Successor, Governor Wike

The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, on Tuesday, was close to tears, as he called for the immediate resignation of his successor, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

Amaechi who made the call in an interview with State House Correspondents, after a meeting he had with President Muhammadu Buhari, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, was reacting to the killing of 21 residents of the State, on their way back from New Year’s crossover service.

“It never happened when I was Governor. We (the Security Chiefs and myself) ensured that we did not sleep at night. We stayed awake for the citizens to sleep. I think the Governor needs to do much more than that, or quit the office”, he said.

The Minister added that the Governor needed to be more serious, and stop encouraging the militant groups in the name of politics and election.

He said while the issue of the 21 residents was in the public domain, two other persons were killed in Akutoru.

He alleged that similar scenario played out in other Local Government Areas in the State.

Amaechi added: “I think there should be much more than age to qualify to be a Governor, because it takes much more than age.

“I was Governor of Rivers State, I did not play PDP/APC politics. Life is life, it has no symbol. Nobody has APC life or PDP life.

“The first responsibility of a Governor which is what the oath of office requires, is that you swear to protect lives and property.

“When you do not protect life and property, what do you do? It is impeachment. Unfortunately, there is no House of Assembly in Rivers State.

“There is too much noise coming from Rivers State. The Governor just wakes up and starts shouting, abusing people. That is all he does. Mr. Project painting roads.

“The first thing you do is human capacity development and keeping human beings, and we are losing lives everyday.”

The Minister further stated that Wike had no reason not to secure the State, because he has everything working for him.

“I just do not know, because the things are there for him to work with. He is not like me when during my second term, President Goodluck Jonathan took away Police, SSS. The Army Brigade Commander could not visit me.

“But in this case, everyone is disposed to him. He can see the Commissioner of Police, Director SSS, unlike my period, but we fought insecurity.

“But because he needs these people for election purpose, that is why they are still there, that is why they are killing; we need much more than that.

“Unfortunately, I swore not to be talking about Rivers anymore, but you do not keep quiet in the face of 21 lives, you cannot just keep quiet.

“I have said it that nobody should criticise his successor. But a successor that watches the lives of people go like that and does not care? God will bless him”, he said.

Meanwhile, Governor Nyesom Wike has vowed to give N200 million to anybody who helps the Police track down the perpetrators of the crime.
