Amaechi stated further that God would not allow a killer to become the Governor of Rivers State.
Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi has accused Governor-elect, Nyesom Wike of murder.
Amaechi stated further that God would not allow a killer to become the governor of Rivers.
The outgoing governor made the comments on Tuesday, May 26, 2015 during a public lecture to mark his 50 birthday in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
“I refused to probe Dr. Odili’s tenure because when they ask of my report, it won’t be who you probed but what you did. If Wike accuses me of corruption, he was my Chief of Staff for my many years.”
“A thief cannot call me corrupt. He was my Chief of Staff, if I have no records I have records on him. All the noise Wike is making is to have negotiation with us so they can stay in office illegally but we must go to court.”
“I am a Christian, I have never killed anybody and I will never kill anybody. Instead of killing anybody I will give up my ambition. In a bid for Wike to be governor, he hired Atake, they killed a young man and cut his private part. They slit a young mans throat and hung him on a tree.”
“God will no longer allow people who kill people be governor of Rivers state. He will allow only those who worship him. I am not perfect. If I said I was, I’d be lying. My priest continues to pray for me, he has told me God says we will defeat Nyesom Wike. God will not allow a killer to become Governor but we must learn to be patient. You must share part of my spirit of resistance.”
Wike had earlier said that he would probe Amaechi’s administration after assuming office.
The governor-elect will be sworn in on Friday, May 29, 2015.
