Apparently throwing jabs at his successor again, the former Rivers governor, who recently pictured Rivers under Governor Nyesom Wike as being in its worst state ever, said he neither politicised development nor insulted traditional rulers during his time as governor.
He told the Elekahia gathering,
“I built a primary school that people were coming to watch. I declared health care free in Rivers State, I did not politicise it. I never insulted any chief or any Rivers man. If you are a Christian, one thing God hates is arrogance and pride.
“We are not here to campaign but to access our wards. They (political opponents) will try to intimidate you. The young men in your ward must not allow them to intimidate you. When will win, first thing will be to bring out money to address hunger and poverty.”
Law degree: How ex-transport minister, Rotimi Amaechi, attended classes despite busy schedule
Contrary to claims that the former minister of transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, bought his law degree, a video clip showing his active participation during the academic programme has been obtained.
The former Rivers state governor was seen attending classes, moot and mock trials and writing exams at Baze University, Abuja.
Some of his colleagues, who said they were surprised at Amaechi's commitment to academic work despite his busy schedule, also attested to his punctuality in class.
