How Amaechi, Tonye Cole Actively Worked Against Tinubu – Wike

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Nyesome Wike, governor of Rivers state, has claimed that former Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi, worked against the presidential bid of Bola Tinubu.

 The African Examiner recalls that Tinubu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), won the presidential election conducted on February 25 and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had since issued him a certificate of return.

Also, Amaechi, a former Minister of Transportation, who is a member of the APC contested the party’s presidential primary in June 2022, he however lost to Tinubu and he was not actively involved in the campaign trail of Tinubu despite being a member of the council.

Speaking on Thursday in a broadcast in Port Harcourt, capital of Rivers, Wike stated that Amaechi and Tonye Cole, APC governorship candidate in the state, “actively” worked against the election of Tinubu.

“Rotimi Amaechi and his protégé, Tonye Cole, actively opposed the demand for power shift to the south and worked against their party’s presidential candidate in Rivers state,” Wike said.

“When the president-elect (Tinubu) emerged as the winner, Tonye Cole rushed to congratulate him on his Instagram handle but deleted the post when he was criticised.”

According to Governor Wike, the G5, a group of five governors in the PDP, has been “vindicated” for supporting a power shift to the south.

 “For us in the G-5, the presidential election was about fairness, equity, and justice. Our commitment was for a presidential power shift from the north, where it has been for the last eight years, to southern Nigeria,” he said.

“Thankfully, Nigerians have vindicated our stand, and we appreciate the electoral majority for strengthening the nation’s unity with their choice.”
