Governor Nyesom Wike today mocked immediate past Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, harping that his estranged political associate and predecessor can’t point to a single project he attracted to benefit Rivers state people over his ministerial stewardship.

Wike who threw the jab at Amaechi at the Government House, Port Harcourt as he signed more contracts agreement with Julius Berger, including award of two new flyovers, wished ill luck for the All Progressives Congress (APC) and other opposition parties on the ballot against the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in next year’s battle for his successor.

He said Sim Fubara, 2023 Rivers governorship candidate of the PDP is sure to succeed him and that other parties in line to contest against him were engaging in an exercise in futility.

On the latest Julius Berger contracts against the limited time left in his administration, Wike reiterated that he would transfer no liability to his successor either in shape of debt on loans taken by his administration or uncompleted projects, charging the contractor to ensure it completed the projects on schedule on the assurance to complete payments with a monthly N2Billion release.
