Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Thursday stated that he embarked on a mass commissioning of projects in the State to “shame’ a former governor of the State, Rotimi Amaechi.
According to The Nation, he stated this during the inauguration of the first ever road to Rumuodogo communities in Emohua Local Government Area.
The Rivers governor said he started inaugurating projects to shame his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi, who on May 27th 2015 said he would not have money to pay salaries much less executing projects.
He said: “You know why we are commissioning these projects; you remember in May 27th 2015 our brother who was a governor on his birthday while he was leaving office told us that there was no way we would get money to pay pensioners and gratuities not to talk of doing projects.
“We say God you must show that you are God. God in his infinite mercy showed the love he has for this state. He did not only provide money just to pay salaries, pensioners and their gratuities. He has provided money to do this road.
“God gave him all the money, yet he refused to do this road. He thinks that Rumuodogo people will still be backward. God said no the time has come for people to remember Rumuodogo people.
“Why should I not be happy. The man took the position of God, as far as he is concerned you cannot be anything. But the almighty God says who are you? God used somebody to bring that money”. he added.
