“Amaechi lacks proper parental upbringing hence his desperation in the political arena… He is a psychiatric patient.”
Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers state, has described Rotimi Amaechi, his predecessor in office, as a failed governor who did not have “proper parental training”.
Speaking earlier with a Port-Harcourt-based radio station on Saturday, Amaechi had said Goodluck Jonathan hated the people of Rivers state so much that he was unwilling to clean up Ogoniland.
He also branded Wike as a desperate governor who could sell his mother.
“Nyesom Wike is here to steal money; he was my chief of staff. We will chase Wike’s boys out of the water now we have Dakuku Peterside as DG NIMASA,” Amaechi had said.
“People still want me back as governor. I will be here till the March 19 re-run election; let’s see what Wike can do. Let’s face it man to man.
“If you see the money stolen by Nyesom Wike in the ministry of education you will be shocked. Every day you wake up to find out that Wike has killed somebody.
“Wike has collected N50bn; what has it done with the money? By this time when I was sworn in I was already commissioning projects. Wike is so desperate that he can sell his mother….”
But responding in a statement issued by Simeon Nwakaudu, his special assistant on electronic media, described Amaechi as “monstrously corrupt”, saying “only a man with psychiatric disorder will compare his failed eight years in office to just eight months of the new administration”.
“Amaechi lacks proper parental upbringing hence his desperation in the political arena,” the statement quoted Wike as saying at the PDP Rivers west senatorial district campaign rally at Ahoada in the state.
“He is a psychiatric patient who was at the radio station abusing people who are old enough to be his fathers/mothers simply because his party lost at the Supreme Court.
“We will defeat Amaechi again and again. No matter the deployed to Rivers State, the PDP we will all the seats.”
He claimed that Amaechi confessed during the radio interview that the military had been handed over to him to rig elections in the state.
However, he enthused that the plot would fail woefully as the Rivers people will defend their mandate.
“Amaechi’s personal friend, Mr Tosin Ajayi, was posted to Rivers State as DSS director with the evil objective of creating the environment of rigging,” he said.
“Only yesterday, I intercepted the communication of the DSS director and the Brigade commander where they were planning on the ways of rigging the election alongside Amaechi. That plot has failed.
“Amaechi lacks sound parental upbringing. He has vindicated us when he said that he has been given the army to rig the rerun elections. I know the Chief of Army staff very well. He should not allow a psychiatric patient to use the Army to rig.
“Is Amaechi now the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces that he talks about deploying soldiers? Our people will rise up to defend their votes. They will make the needed sacrifices their votes.
“If President Muhammadu Buhari visits Amaechi’s house in Asokoro, he will never allow him to come into Presidential Villa.
“After the case initiated by Amaechi over his indictment, he will face justice for embezzling state funds.
