Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has criticized Rotimi Amaechi, former Minister of Transportation, and Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, over their 2023 presidential bid.
Wike said Amaechi and Nwajiuba have no conscience for seeking to be President while their ministries have unresolved issues.
Wike stated this at a political gathering in Ibadan, Oyo State.
According to Wike: “Nigerians know my views. I believe in restructuring. I believe in state police. You cannot stop insecurity in this country without state police which is the practice in all countries that run true federalism.
“Before it happens, you’ve stopped it or caged them. 42 people died in the train blast, and no concrete report until now.
“This is a country where a Minister of Transport after people died in such accident and the next day, he went and collected forms for the presidency.
“You’re a Minister of Education, schools have closed for how many months, the next thing; the minister went and collected form for presidency. I have not seen a country like this, no conscience.”
Amaechi and Nwajiuba are Presidential aspirants under the All Progressives Congress, APC.
