Inko-Tariah further noted that he resigned his portfolio as the governor's media aide when he realised Gov. Wike cared less about his health when he was in grave danger.

The former SA to the governor also expressed his gratitude to the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi adding that the ex-governor came to his aide when his boss abandoned him.

He further noted that though he had criticised Amaechi in the past, it was reinvigorating to note that the same Amaechi called to sympathise with him.

“It was surprising that a man I censured, His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi, CON, the Hon. Minister of Transport, was the same person who showed unsolicited love and care," Inko-Tariah said in a statement.
