Wike wondered how Amaechi could claim to love the Igbo tribe and yet refuse to support the Labour Party candidate Peter Obi for the presidency but instead, voted for the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Gov Nyesom Wike and Rotimi Amaechi
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has taken a swipe at the former minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi for saying he loves Igbos.
Amaechi, while moving around the Diobu area of Port Harcourt, campaigning for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, during the week, said that Igbo blood runs through his veins.
Amaechi said that while he was the Governor of the State, his administration favoured the Igbos, who he also claimed to be part of, berating the current administration of Wike for not being fair enough with Igbos.
However, addressing the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, supporters during a campaign rally ahead of the 2023 governorship and State Assembly elections in the State, Wike wondered how Amaechi could claim to love the Igbo tribe and yet refuse to support the Labour Party candidate Peter Obi for the presidency but instead, voted for the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
“You think you’re smart, but you’re not smart. You said you love the Igbos, but you supported Atiku. You refused to support Obi. You didn’t know the Igbos then you’re supposed to support them.
“You’ve been a minister for how many years, what did you do for the Igbos? When he was running for President, he said power should come to the South.
“When he lost, he didn’t believe in that again and said power should go to the North. So that when the North finishes, they’ll give him,” Wike said.
