My problem with Amaechi not personal – Wike

Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers said on Friday that he bears
no personal grudges with his predecessor, Chibuike Rotimi
Amaechi.

Speaking at the 12 All Nigeria
Editors Conference holding in Port Harcourt, Wike said he and Amaechi, who is now Minister of Transport, do not agree politically because they belong to different political parties.

“There is nothing personal. We differ politically
because we belong to different political politics. We
want peace in the state and it is my desire to ensure
that the state is peaceful,” he said.

Wike commended
former President Goodluck Jonathan who he said did something
special to ensure peace in the country by conceding
defeat during the 2015 general election.

“Jonathan should be commended for this single act.
People should emulate this move to ensure peace in
the country,” he said.

Wike said Amaechi was his boss as governor and they had good
times serving the state.

“We should make sacrifices for peace. The state must
move on. We only differ politically and that should not
be to the level that will destroy the state,” he said.
