Amaechi angry at my ‘Mr Project’ nickname – Wike

Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike has said his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi is angry because of his nickname ‘Mr Project’.

Wike spoke during an interview on Monday with a Port Harcourt-based radio station, Rhythm FM.

Wike said Amaechi should allow those who want to be governor in the state express themselves, stating that he could never be President again.

Amaechi had during a lecture to mark his 52nd birthday criticised the tag Mr. Project ascribed to Wike.

But Wike said, “His (Amaechi) anger is that I have been given the name, Mr. Project. I came to serve the people. You are comparing your eight years with my two years.

“Anybody aspiring to be governor should be allowed to tell Rivers people what he wants to do. You (Amaechi) cannot be governor again,” he said.

He added that his administration cannot be compared to Amaechi’s because he completed all the abandoned projects left by him.

“It is unfortunate that someone who was celebrating his 52nd birthday would tell Rivers people what is not correct.

“The immediate past administration abandoned projects by previous administrations. But we chose to complete projects that they abandoned.  We completed all the projects that will positively impact the lives of our people.

“We inherited N14.7bn as salaries and pensions from the Amaechi administration, which we cleared; N23.2bn loan from Zenith Bank was also inherited and cleared by us. Another agriculture loan obtained by that administration was cleared by my administration.”
