Tarnishing & Discrediting Rotimi Amaechi Were Gov., Wike's Priority - Henry Ugboma.

Wike & Amaechi.

One Professor Henry Ugboma, a former member of Governor Nyesom Wike’s transition committee in 2015, has accused the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike of setting an agenda to discredit his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi.


Ugboma stated that the tarnishing Amaechi’s image was Wike’s number one agenda even before his inauguration as governor of the state began as The Punch reported, citing an interview it monitored on Arise TV on Monday, April 12. 

Ugboma who is now the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital said Wike's plot against Amaechi was one of the reasons he (Ugboma) left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as according to him, “I can rightly tell you that the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has this paranoid issue against the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi and I noticed this as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party and that was one of the reasons I left the party. 

Continuing, he said, “I was a member of the transition committee set up by Wike immediately after the election to marshal out and put together things that will destroy the honourable Minister of Transportation, and Governor Wike immediately set us to task, that we must derive, contrived things that will mess up Amaechi and destroy him politically, and make sure that he doesn’t take up any political position in the country.” 

Ugboma also alleged that Wike made efforts to ensure Amaechi did not have the chance of serving in President Buhari’s cabinet, but the state through the states commissioner for information, Paulinus Nsirim, dismissed Ugboma’s allegations. 

Nsirim further accused Amaechi of refusing to hand over to Governor Wike. He added that a panel of inquiry set up by the Wike-led government indicted the transportation minister.
