Shame On Amaechi, Others From Rivers Working With Buhari's Government - Wike 3

Governor Nyesom Wike says shame on Rotimi Amaechi and other political appointees who are working with President Muhammadu Buhari-led government for what he described as deliberate marginalization of Rivers State in the recent release of N148billion for roads construction across the country.

Wike is angry that his predecessor, Amaechi who is the Minister of Transportation since Buhari’s first term, and others from the state, working with the current government, could not supposedly protect the interest of Rivers.

While commissioning the new Rivers State Civil Servants Quarters at Amassoma Street in Port Harcourt on Thursday, September 19, 2019, Governor Wike berated the Federal Government for the action he declared that as the most shameful act of deliberate marginalization in a Federation where Rivers State contributes to the financial sustenance of the country. He said:

“The Federal Government released N148bn for the construction of roads and it did not consider one Road in Rivers State. Look at the condition of the East-West Road.

“Shame on those who say they are working with the current Federal Government, but cannot protect the interest of Rivers State in that Government.

“We are producing oil that finances projects in the country and the Federal Government can release N148bn for roads and Rivers State was neglected. You are working with the Federal Government and you cannot attract projects to Rivers State. Anyone, who is in APC and is from Rivers State, shame on you!

“You are there; you cannot even say for my sake help me and give me one Road. So I can go home and tell my people this is what I brought to Rivers State.

“What offence has Rivers State committed in this country that this Federal Government cannot for one day remember the state? They have our son who was their Director-General. If for nothing, since he was your Director-General, help him and do one project for his people.

“Tomorrow you will say Rivers people should vote for you. Which vote? We won’t do that. Nobody is a slave. We are not slaves. We cannot be conquered by anybody,” Wike said.
