Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has described the former Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi, as a total failure.
Speaking at the inauguration of the reconstructed former Riv Bank Insurance building in Port Harcourt, the state capital, on Monday, Wike alleged that the former Minister did not attract any meaningful project to the State in seven years he served as a member of the federal cabinet.He said a man who has failed to attract projects to his state should hide his face in shame and stop talking about Rivers politics.
Wike spoke in reaction to comments by the former minister that the Rivers State government refused to give state burial to late Chief Alabo Tonye Graham-Douglas, who was laid to rest last weekend.
Wike boasted that while he was a junior minister, he attracted the Faculty of Law to the University of Port Harcourt, and established the Oil and Gas Polytechnic in Bonny.Daily Trust reports that Wike said the State government stayed away from the burial activities because it was politicised and he did not want to be associated with such trivialities.
