Former Governor of Rivers State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi has described Governor, Nyesom Wike as a drunk, alleging that he spends N50 million on alcohol every week.
Amaechi, who said this during a meeting with members of the APC in Ogba/Egba/Ndoni LGA yesterday, called on Rivers people not to allow Wike a third term through his stooge, Sim Fubara.
The immediate past Transportation Minister also alleged that the amount of funds Wike spends on alcohol in two weeks, is equivalent to the amount he spent to build one primary school, when he was governor of the state.
He also said when Wike talks, it is alcohol that is talking, adding that Wike’s lifestyle has been shortchanging Rivers people and wasting state funds.
Part of his statement reads,
The person Wike buys alcohol from, said Wike spends 50 million naira every week on alcohol.
The primary schools we built is 112 million naira, it means that in two weeks, Wike has drunk one primary school. When Wike talks, it is alcohol that is talking. And he’s so shameless about it. Wike told the whole world on live TV that he was drinking a very expensive 40 year old whiskey, in the morning.”
The people have rejected Wike and his government. Every street I went to, people were jumping on top of me shouting. They were remembering that I built 5 flyovers, I did not dance. We employed 400 new doctors, bought cars for 600 doctors, bought ambulances for all the health centres.”
We hired 13,200 teachers. By the time I left as governor, there was a contractor in every school to maintain the school. Where are the schools that he (Wike) built?”
