The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has berated former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, and Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, for wanting to be President when they couldn’t execute their duties effectively as ministers.
This comes after the past Ministers declared interest in contesting in the forthcoming Presidential election in 2023, and purchased the APC form pegged at N100 million.
Reacting to this development, Wike speaking at a political gathering in Oyo state on Tuesday, May 24, said the ministers have no conscience for seeking to be president when there are unresolved issues in their respective Ministries.
“Nigerians know my views. I believe in restructuring. I believe in state police. You cannot stop insecurity in this country without state police which is the practice in all countries that run true federalism. Intelligence is key. Before it happens you’ve stopped it or cage them.
Look at it, 42 people died in train blast, up until now no concrete report. This is a country where a Minister of Transport, after people died in such accident and the next day, he went and collected forms for presidency.
You’re a Minister of Education, schools have closed for how many months, the next thing; the minister went and collected form for presidency. I have not seen a country like this, no conscience.”
