Amaechi, Wike’s conflict spreading violence, fear —Rivers elders

PORT HARCOURT — SENIOR citizens in Rivers State have accused Governor Nyesom Wike and his predecessor, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation of being the “source of great pains to the state” over insecurity and setbacks allegedly being instigated by their lingering political conflict.

Following a meeting over the weekend in Port Harcourt, elites and elders under the Rivers Elders and Leaders Council resolved to confront estranged Wike and Amaechi to realise the collateral damage to the state by their lack of communion. Dr. Kalada Ireunabere, who drew attention of the elders forum to the matter said: “The trouble and wave of fear in Rivers at the moment is not of upland-riverine dichotomy. It is caused by the fight between two brothers from same stock, one at the federal, the other holding sway in the state.
