The Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, has vowed that himself as well as the All Progressives Congress (APC), will battle the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, to the last during the general elections on Saturday, February 16.
He said this on Tuesday during President Buhari’s campaign rally in the state, while explaining that he has been betrayed severally by people who had once appeared to be loyal to him.
“In 2015, the army tried to arrest me as a sitting governor. “You have a governor who is busy lobbying us, negotiating with us (let us give you presidency, you will give me governor). He is afraid, is he not? We will battle him to the last. “80 per cent of those who have made a success in Rivers State, passed through me.
“Wike was my Chief of Staff, I made him Chairman of Council, I inaugurated him as a minister but when he saw Goodluck, he betrayed me. “I have been betrayed serially… including senators. After you finish helping them, after praying for them, they will go and betray you for a pot of porridge. Saturday is our day.”
