Rivers State Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that former Governor Rotimi Amaechi was a failed governor who needs urgent psychiatric evaluation and treatment in apparent reaction to Amaechi’s appearance in a radio programme in Port Harcourt on Saturday.
Wike said Amaechi is monstrously corrupt, pointing out that after his litigation on his indictment by the judicial Commission of Inquiry, his (Amaechi’s) prosecution over the embezzlement of Rivers resources will take place.
Speaking at the PDP Rivers West Senatorial District Campaign rally at Ahoada on Saturday, Wike said that only a man with psychiatric disorder will compare his failed eight years in office to just eight months of the new administration.
He said the former governor failed in his eight years as the state chief executive. According to him, Amaechi lacks proper parental upbringing hence his desperation in the political arena.
Wike said that the APC has refused to campaign for the rerun elections because they are relying on the military and security forces to rig.
“He is a psychiatric patient who was at the radio station abusing people who are old enough to be his fathers/mothers simply because his party lost at the Supreme Court.Today
“We will defeat Amaechi again and again. No matter the deployed army to Rivers State, the PDP will win all the seats “.
