Rivers governor, Nyesom Wike, has said that his predecessor and current minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, does not have the power to decide who runs for governor of the state. Wike was responding to Amaechi’s recent claim that the only issue between both of them was Wike’s decision to seek a second term.
What Wike said:
- “It is not in his place to say that I should not go for a second tenure; it is for the people of Rivers state, it doesn’t matter what his opinion is because he is not the owner of Rivers state, he is not the people of the state, he is one person in the state.”
- “If I did not do well in my first tenure, my party, PDP, will not allow me to fly the flag of the party,” he added.
