The Minister of Transportation and Ex Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi, has declared that he would expose the wife of his successor and current Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, “if he does not shut up his mouth.”
The transport minister made the threat on Tuesday while reacting to a recent allegation made by Gov. Wike against his wife, Judith.
Gov. Wike had on Monday, accused Amaechi’s wife, of receiving the sums of N3m and N2m, respectively, from each commissioner and local government chairman, every month while Amaechi was in office as Governor.
Amaechi, while responding to questions from newsmen on the issue during an inspection programme in Kaduna, stated that,
“By accident of Goodluck Jonathan, I don’t want to attribute it to God, but by the accident of Jonathan, the man takes office and talks rubbish. My wife and family, including my younger brothers and sisters, no one had access to government when I was governor
“Even as minister, nobody will have such because it is not a family business. It is government business. But the problem with Nyesom Wike, and I want you to state this if he doesn’t shut up his mouth and do his work I will bring his wife to the focus. You see I’ve been very matured not to talk about his wife.
“But if Wike does not close his mouth and talk about my wife anymore, I will bring out his wife. My wife will never do such, we don’t do family business. I care about transparency. My wife is a trader. She buys and sells and Wike knows that.”
