This was contained in a statement released by the state party Chairman, Davies Ikanya on Tuesday, September 1, 2015.

It reads:

“These retrogressive forces led by the state governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, are so afraid of the shadow of Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi that they are willing to go to any length to ensure that he is not accommodated in President Buhari’s cabinet.”

“They have for months mounted a relentless campaign of calumny against the person of Amaechi, thus biting the finger that once fed them. This is not only shameful but also a clear subterfuge against the greater interests of Rivers State.”

“We wish to advise Wike to stop trying to play God. We are confident that he can never constitute a stumbling block to Amaechi if President Buhari wishes to nominate him to render service to his fatherland in any capacity.”

Wike and Amaechi have in recent times been at loggerheads over a judicial commission of enquiry set up by the governor to probe his predecessor’s administration.
