The Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike has accused the minister of transportation and former Governor of the state, Rotimi Amaechi, of using state funds to sponsor the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Punch reports that Wike said Amaechi took $150m from the state coffers to bank roll major election campaigns of the APC.

Wike said this at a thanksgiving service organised to praise God for the Supreme Court judgement upholding his election, at Saint Peter’s Anglican Church in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.

The Rivers State Governor, also warned that anyone caught rigging elections in the state would be treated like an armed robber.

Following the Governor’s comments, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers, said Wike is turning into a dictator.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state has since dismissed comments by those criticising the Supreme Court judgement that upheld his election, saying there’s nothing wrong with the apex court’s confirmation.
