Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has reacted to the comment of the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi that he was his employee while in power.

Wike on Friday, March 19, said that he was one of the major instruments used to make the Transportation Minister the governor of the state.

Speaking in an interview, Wike said:

“I was the one God used to make Amaechi governor. I will even give you a tape from what he said in the church; that after God, I’m next. But when he was talking the other day, saying I was his staff, his employee, I said no problem.

“We all sat to make you governor, and I was the one who championed it. How do you call someone who made you governor an employee? When he became governor, he asked me; how are we going to run this government, and he offered me to be Commissioner of Finance, but I said no, let me be in the Chief of Staff Office.”

According to him, he parted ways with his predecessor after the minister defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Governor Wike said he can never support what Amaechi is doing now that he is in the ruling party.
