The immediate-past Minister of Transportation and former governor of the State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, has alleged that the incumbent State Governor, Nyesom Wike, is a drunk, who spends N50million on alcohol every week and should not be allowed a third term.

Amaechi made the claim on Tuesday, March 14, during his campaign for the Rivers state APC gubernatorial candidate, Tonye Cole, in Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni local government area of the State, where he was conferred with a traditional title by the Oba of Ogba land, Eze Chukwumela Nnam Obi II.

The former minister complained that the amount of State funds Wike spends on alcohol in two weeks, is almost equivalent to the amount he (Amaechi) spent to build one primary school when he served as governor.

He is quoted:

“The person Wike spends 50million naira every week on alcohol. The primary schools we built is 112 million naira, it means that in two weeks, Wike has drank one primary school. When Wike talks, it is alcohol that is talking. And he’s so shameless about it. Wike told the whole world on live TV that he was drinking a very expensive 40-year-old whiskey, in the morning.

“We are asking INEC to be neutral. The people have rejected Wike and his government. Every street I went to, people were jumping on top of me shouting. They were remembering that I built five flyovers, I did not dance. We employed 400 new doctors, bought cars for 600 doctors, bought ambulances for all the health centres. We went round primary schools to see what’s going on, and discovered there were no teachers, so we hired 13,200 teachers. By the time I left as Governor, there was a contractor in every school to maintain the school. Where are the schools that he (Wike) built?,”

Rotimi Amaechi and Nyesom Wike have had a running feud since 2014 over political differences
