‘You Are Total Failure’ – Wike Knocks Amaechi Over Statement On Kalabari Chief


The Governor of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has slammed his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi, who accused him of shying away from the burial responsibility of prominent traditional ruler, Alabo Graham-Douglas.

Amaechi, who has been at loggerheads with Wike for years on Saturday, took a swipe at the Rivers State governor, where he noted that he thought the state government would take responsibility for everything concerning the Kalabari chief and recognise him. However, Wike while commissioning a remodelled former RivBank Building in Port Harcourt in the state capital, on Monday replied Amaechi, saying he chose to stay away from the burial because it was politicised. Wike went on to give a detailed account of how he constructed the roads leading to the residence and palace of the traditional ruler when he was alive. He described the former Minister of Transportation as a “total failure” who no longer has access to Aso Villa in Abuja. “This should be the last time that you (Amaechi) will talk about this state because you are a total failure as far as this state is concerned. A total failure. Even what is supposed to come to us, you blocked it but we didn’t bother. “You think you will not finish as a minister, you have left. I hear he can’t even enter Villa now. All those periods you intimidated police people, and army people are over. You use to tell them, ‘The President is angry with you’. Now, go and tell them,” Wike said The governor also claimed he elevated Alabo’s stool to the status of a first-class monarch before his passing. “Don’t distract us again or else I will say more things,” Wike further warned the former minister.
