The minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has said it is too early to assess the Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike.

Amaechi said this while paying a condolence visit to the family of the late Author, Captain Elechi Amadi.

He said “It is too early to assess Nyesom Wike. It is too early to assess him; it is just one year. You cannot be comparing his one year to my one year, let’s allow him. Maybe, he will achieve it in his second year; maybe, he will achieve it in his third year”.

“But, the number of people that have been killed so far, the number of people that have been beheaded, in my first term; I didn’t see anybody beheaded, neither did I see anybody killed by these criminals.”

Wike took over from Amaechi on May 29, 2015 after a keenly contested election that saw many people lose their lives.

The minister also said he was not happy about the number of lives that have been lost in the state since 2015.

Rotimi Amaechi, in an interview with Channels Television on Wednesday, March 16, 2016, said you must be God fearing to be a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
