How Amaechi punished Edeoha-Ikata, Ochigba people because of me – Nwuche



Former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Chibudum Nwuche, has hailed Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, for constructing the Edeoha-Ikata/Ochigba road abandoned by ex-governor of the state, Rotimi Amaechi.

He said Nwuche was not just politician​ ​but a statesman who accommodates political opponents.

Nwuche spoke yesterday at commissioning of the Edeoha-Ikata- Ochigba Road in Ahoada East Local Government Area of the State.

The event was attended by a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon Ghali Umar Na’abba.

In his remarks, Nwuche recalled that the road was abandoned by former Rivers state Governor, Chibuike Amaechi, because of him.

He expressed sadness that people of the areas were punished over political differences.

Nwuche noted that Wike released funds for the construction of the road, despite the fact he (Nwuche) is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said: “I tell people that politics is about the people. People love Wike for his good works.

“They love him for the roads he has for Ahoada people. I urge Governor Wike to keep being the good person that he is.”

Responding, Wike stated that he construction was in fulfillment of his promise to Nwuche.

“”This road was abandoned because of Chibudum Nwuche and I gave him my word that we shall construct the road.

“We cannot allow our people to suffer simply because their leader belongs to another political party.

“There is no politics of victimisation in Rivers State. The only political party we have in this state is Rivers State. All of us are working for Rivers State”, Wike said.

Rivers State Commissioner of Works, Dum Dekor, explained that the length of the road is 8.4kilometres.

Member representing Ahoada East Constituency 2 in the Rivers State House of Assembly, Mr Ehie Edison, declared that the people will support Wike for a second term.
