Clash Of The Titans…Continues: Wike Hits Amaechi, Insists He Left An Empty Treasury

The war of words between Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state and his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi is far from over.

The war of words between the Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, and his predecessor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, is far from over. In another episode of accusations and counter accusations, Wike on Tuesday again dismissed the claims of Amaechi that he left N10bn in the state treasury.

Amaechi had on Saturday insisted that his administration left billions of naira in different bank accounts of the state.

However, responding to these claims, Governor Wike, speaking at the Civil Service Day award celebration in Port Harcourt, maintained that he met an empty treasury when he was inaugurated.


Wike queried that if Amaechi had left N10bn in the state coffers as he claims; why were workers, pensioners and contractors not paid before the expiration of his tenure.

“If there was any truth in his (Amaechi) claim that he left the sum of N10bn, why was he unable to pay civil servants, pensioners, refuse disposal contractors for more than three months?

“Why was it that our children could not write their examinations while those on foreign scholarship were stranded because of the state’s indebtedness,” the governor added.
