Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that his predecessor and ex-governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi is mentally challenged.
Speaking at the Government House Port Harcourt on Wednesday when the management of the Silverbird Group presented his nomination letter as the Silverbird Man of the Year, 2017, Wike said;
“Former Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has a serious mental case. This is what makes it difficult for him to appreciate the seriousness of security issues.
That is the kind of people that we have in the Federal Cabinet. With such people, it is impossible for the country to make progress. He needs urgent medical attention “.
He described as ridiculous the false allegation by the Former Rivers State Governor that he armed the perpetrators of the Omoku killings. He also wondered why the Minister of Transportation would prefer to blame him for the killings in Omoku while refusing to blame the APC governors of Lagos, Benue, Kwara and Kaduna States for killings in their states.
He stated that all the heads of security agencies in Rivers State were nominated by the Minister of Transportation. He said if there is any security infraction in Rivers State, the Minister should seek information from his nominees who serve as heads of security agencies.
“Amaechi is the one who manipulates the posting of security heads to Rivers State using the Federal Government. They know what they are doing.If they are planning anything against Rivers State, they will not succeed”.
