Wike Attacks Amaechi: We're starting projects afresh because you wasted our money

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that the administration started the process of infrastructural development afresh because the immediate past administration of Rotimi Amaechi squandered resources that accrued to the state under his eight years of misrule.

He said it was Amaechi’s eight years of misrule that made it impossible for the former governor to construct a road to the hometown of his political mentor, Chief Godspower Ake of the APC.

The governor also urged Rivers people to rise and pray to God to handle those working with outsiders to disrupt the political process and deny the Rivers people representation at the Senate.

Wike spoke on Sunday during the 10th Anniversary Thanksgiving Service of Omega Power Ministry in Port Harcourt and the Harvest Thanksgiving of Saint Luke Anglican Church, Rumuadaolu.

At the Saint Luke Anglican Church, Governor Wike said:
"Amaechi squandered the money of our people, using state resources to sponsor elections in other places. Because of the funds squandered by Amaechi, we are starting the development of sstatewide infrastructure afresh. For eight years, at a time that the state got approximately N20billion monthly, that administration failed to develop critical infrastructure.

"G.U Ake was Amaechi’s political mentor. Yet for eight years, he denied his community the required access road. For us, we will continue to ensure the development of infrastructure in all communities of Rivers State, irrespective of the political leaning of the people."

Speaking at the Omega Power Ministry, Governor Wike said he has presented the political problem of the state before God, urging all Christians to pray fervently for the sustenance of the state.

He said: "The same God who ensured that we overcame them in 2015, will answer our prayers".
