Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike says the reason former minister of transportation, Chibuike Amaechi and Mr. Tonye Cole plot to plunder the State’s resources again will never materialize.

Governor Wike, who spoke at the inauguration of the Rukpakwulusi/Eliogbolo internal roads on Saturday, said Amaechi’s criticism of the ongoing projects inauguration and flag-off in Rivers State smacks of enviousness and malice.

He noted that Amaechi having failed to account for the $308 million proceeds from the sales of the State power plants by his administration, lacks the moral rectitude to speak on the affairs of Rivers State.

“Why should we not celebrate, when you sold our gas turbine at the cost of $308 Million? Convert it today at even N500, how much will it be? What can you show for the money, certainly nothing.”

The governor urged Rivers people to be wary of the antics of the former minister who desperately wants Mr. Cole, his business partner to become governor so that they can continue to loot the resources of Rivers State.

“All the gas turbines that Dr. Peter Odili bought, where are they today? So you think Rivers people are foolish to see that you are bringing the person, your business partner to come and be governor so that you will continue to loot where you stopped. It will never happen.”

He advised the former minister to perish the thought that there will be a re-enactment of the 2019 foiled attempt to use the Army to rig the general election in the State in 2023.

Governor Wike recalled that on May 27, 2015, while he was still governor-elect, Amaechi who was then the State government had bragged at Obi Wali International Conference Centre, Port Harcourt, that the incoming government will not have money to pay salaries and execute projects.
