Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi has called on Rivers state people to vote out his successor, Nyesom Wike over insecurity issues in the state.
Amaechi gave the charge at the Dedication service of the Tonye Cole campaign organisation in Port Harcourt.
Concise News reports that the event where the minister made the statement took place at the Redeemed Christian Church on Sunday.
His words: “It is unfortunate am saying this before the camera because it’s like demarketing Rivers State when you hear about death. We heard about how many killings up to eight persons just last week.
“If the Governor cannot take charge and people are dying, then there is a need for replacement and for people to vote for their lives.
“We are no longer talking about food now, we are not talking about light, we are talking about the right to existence that you have to live. All the shops and houses are empty people are on the run because nobody can protect them here”
The minister noted that they were in church because they believe that God drives everything and it is important to seek God first before talking to the people.
