Governor Nyesom Wike has admitted that most of the projects that his administration has completed in parts of the State were really conceived by the government of  Governor Rotimi Amaechi.

Amaechi who is currently the Minister of Transportation and one of the national leaders of the APC has been derided in the past by Governor Wike for doing nothing while in office.

But Governor Wike apparently changed the narrative about his predecessor at Emohua while commissioning the Rumuche/Rumuakunde/Ohna Sergeant Awuse Road built by his administration.

He publicly acknowledged that he inherited projects started by his predecessor and made sure that they were completed.

Governor Wike also revealed that his administration similarly retained the contractors recruited by his predecessor, saying government his a continuum.

Earlier, Sergeant Awuse said that the completion of the road after years of endless promises  by previous administrations has made him proud of his association with Governor Nyesom Wike.


Governor Wike, tears streaming down his eyes, listened as Awuse reiterated his support and loyalty, saying if this (the construction of the road) is what it takes to serve, he would remain a servant forever.

Senator Rochas Okorocha who commissioned the road hailed Wike for completing projects commenced by his predecessor, saying it was the right thing to do.

Describing Wike as controversial, Okorocha spoke of the need for like minds in the PDP and the APC to join forces in order to move the country forward.

Talks about the emergence of a third force may have nose-dived, but Okorocha’s visit to Rivers State may have rekindled the hunt for an alternative political vehicle that might outpace both the APC and the PDP.
