According to the minister, Wike has only one agenda and that is 'Amaechi'. The former governor and Wike's predecessor during an interview on Question time by Channels Television said;
"The governor has just one agenda – if he is in his toilet, ‘Amaechi’; if he is outside his toilet, ‘Amaechi’".
He went further; "He (Wike) was my staff; he is like one of my sons. Why should I engage him? He was local government chairman when I was the speaker of the state," he added.
"When I was governor, I used Rivers state’s money on projects in the state. If you visit the state, you will see the primary schools that we built. No matter what the governor does, the projects are there,” he said.
“I hired 13,200 teachers who are alive, I established primary schools, the primary schools are there. They are no longer maintained.
