Chibuike Amaechi, minister of transport, says Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria’s former president, hated the people of Rivers state so much that he was unwilling to clean up Ogoniland.
He also took a shot at Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers state, saying he is so desperate he can sell his mother.
“Jonathan hated Rivers people so much that ordinary $1bn to clean up Ogoni land, he refused to pay,” he said in an interview at a radio station station in Port Harcourt on Saturday monitored and tweeted by Rivers State Watch.
The former governor said that he was ready for Wike in the rerun national and state assembly election on March 19.
“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,” he 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. Everyday you wake up to find out that Wike has killed somebody.”
Again, about Wike, he said: “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. On the day of the re-run I am ready for Wike, they should come out with their guns, we are ready for them.”
