Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said that his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi lacks proper parental upbringing.

Wike made the comments in response to Amaechi calling him corrupt during an interview on Saturday, March 12, 2016.

The governor gave his response via a statement issued by his media aide, Simeon Nwakaudu.

It reads in part:

“Amaechi lacks proper parental upbringing hence his desperation in the political arena.”

“He is a psychiatric patient who was at the radio station abusing people who are old enough to be his fathers/mothers simply because his party lost at the Supreme Court.”

“We will defeat Amaechi again and again. No matter the soldiers deployed to Rivers State, the PDP will win all the seats.”

“Amaechi lacks sound parental upbringing. He has vindicated us when he said that he has been given the army to rig the rerun elections. I know the Chief of Army staff very well. He should not allow a psychiatric patient to use the Army to rig.”

“Is Amaechi now the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces that he talks about deploying soldiers? Our people will rise up to defend their votes. They will make the needed sacrifices for their votes.”

“If President Muhammadu Buhari visits Amaechi’s house in Asokoro, he will never allow him to come into Presidential Villa. After the case initiated by Amaechi over his indictment, he will face justice for embezzling state funds.”

Wike also described Amaechi as “monstrously corrupt”, saying “only a man with psychiatric disorder will compare his failed eight years in office to just eight months of the new administration."
