Ekiti Begins Payment of N5,000 As Social Welfare Stipend to 10,000 Residents / Vice President Osinbajo Commissions Cement & Fertilizer Plants In Edo State / ‘Shekau’s new video, a major breakthrough in war against Boko Haram’ /
He also accused Wike of not taking the development of the state seriously. Amaechi, a former governor of the state, said this in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.
Amaechi accused Wike of “twisting, butchering and turning the truth upside down; and in most cases telling outright lies in his failed bid to denigrate, tarnish and rubbish his towering image, person and laudable, landmark achievements."
He said that most troubling was Wike’s alleged propensity, without any qualms whatsoever, to play politics with the safety and security of the lives of Rivers people.
This, he said, was indeed most worrisome. “It is no secret that Wike plays politics with the development, welfare and well-being of Rivers people. But no government should play politics with the safety and security of its citizens like Wike is sadly and shamelessly doing.
“Governor Wike claimed that the brutal political killings and murder of the APC members and other hapless citizens in the state are cult-related or a result of cult clashes.
“What cult wars is he talking about? Since he claimed to have security reports, we challenge Wike to tell Rivers people the cult group that Franklin Obi, the APC Ward Chairman in Omoku, belongs to, that led to his being gruesomely beheaded and butchered, alongside his pregnant wife and teenage son.
“Or did Franklin suddenly become a cult member because he had the guts and courage to host a resoundingly successful ward meeting of APC faithful in the same ward as Wike’s Peoples Democratic Party State chairman, Felix Obuah, just a few days to the rerun elections?”
Amaechi challenged Wike to tell us the cult groups and the cult wars that led to the killing of the innocent youth corper, Chukwudumeibi Okonta, on the day of the last rerun election.
The minister asked: “Was the youth corper a cultist or a victim of cult wars or yet another victim of politically-motivated killings in Rivers State?”
He also said that Wike must tell Rivers people the cult wars that led to the brutal murder of hundreds of Rivers people since the election that made him governor was held, and the cult groups that all those that had been murdered, belong to.
