Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi has described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate for the state, Nyesom Wike as a thug.

Amaechi also stated that Wike was only motivated by monetary gain and could even betray his mother for that purpose.

The governor stated this on Thursday, April 9, 2015 while campaigning for All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Dakuku Peterside.

"Nyesom Wike loves and worships money; he can betray his mother for money – nothing more, nothing less,” Amaechi said.

“PDP is afraid to come out for an election; they are used to writing results and the era of writing results is coming to an end. How can you see a man like a tout like Nyesom Wike and you will allow him to address you?” he added.

“Be assured that no matter how many criminals Nyesom Wike brings out, no matter how many militants he brings out, if we hold our vote and vote rightly, we will defeat him,” the governor said.

Amaechi had earlier accused Wike of paying $1 million dollars to First Lady, Patience Jonathan monthly in order to gain political favour.
