FROM: TONY JOHN, PORT HARCOURT
FORMER governor of Rivers State and Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi, has accused Governor Nyesom Wike of allowing the killings that are happening in the state.
Amaechi, who stated this yesterday, in a live television programme, pointed out that the upsurge in killings was not like that during his tenure.
Also, Amaechi accused the police and the Commissioner for Police in the state of not doing anything to stop the killings.
The former governor alleged that the opposition armed some youths, thinking that there was going to be a re-run election and those targeted in the killings were members of the APC.
The minister further declared that Wike was not worthy to be governor of the state for his failure to tackle insecurity.
He defended the military invasion and raid of homes of ex-militants in some parts of state, stressing that the youths were armed ahead of the forthcoming national and state Assemblies re-run elections.
In the same vein, Amaechi, has challenged the State Government to make public the reports of Justice George Omereji-led Judicial Commission of Inquiry, indicting him of diverting money from State Reserve Fund.
Amaechi also spoke on his experience trailing his ministerial appointment.
He said that there was nowhere in the constitution that said he could not be made a minister, if indicted by any panel.
He also promised that the Port Harcourt International Airport would be renovated once the budget was passed.
Meanwhile, Governor Wike has maintained his denial that he was not behind the killings in the state.
