Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi has said that he has evidence to prove his claims that Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike is corrupt.

Amaechi, a former governor of the state, also said that Wike lacks the capacity to govern.

The minister made the comments on Sunday, March 13, 2016, at an All Progressives Congress (APC) rally in the state.

“Wike lacks capacity to govern. Somebody who just knows how to steal money is a bushman. Wike said, am corrupt. He should bring evidence to show. I will bring evidence to show that Wike is corrupt,” Amaechi said.

“Wike did the Rukpoku/ Eneka road during my tenure he did not complete it. I gave Wike the contracts to do all the roads around Aristle House(a hotel in GRA) but he failed to do them, I gave him fourteen schools to give to Obio/Akpor people, he stole them, he lacks character.

“When I was the governor, one thing that I kept thinking of was how to chase these criminals away but under Nyesom Wike, he meets with them. If Wike does not secure you people, the federal government will secure you. If he doesn’t want to be ignored he should go and secure you people because federal government will no longer tolerate these killings in Rivers State.

“Saturday is your day, come out and vote. They will no longer have the Police they had, they will no longer have the Army they had, we pray that INEC should be neutral, your job is to match out and vote for APC ,we will not write results like Nyesom Wike, so go back to your wards and do door to door," he added.

Amaechi visited Rivers to lead campaigns ahead of the March 19 state and National Assembly rerun elections in the state.
