Former Governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi has declared that there is ‘no war’ going on between him and incumbent Governor, Nyesom Wike.

Amaechi, who is a serving Minister of Transportation, made the clarification during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Tuesday.

He explained that what is going on between both politicians are borne out of Wike’s decision to run a second term as Governor of the state.

“There is no war going on between Governor Wike and I. What is going on between us is the fact that he wants to run a second term.”

The minister added that the Governor is responsible for the lives in the state and his inability to do so raises concerns.

“He is the governor of Rivers state, he has to protect lives. The moment you can’t protect lives, you must take those responsibilities.

“When I was governor of the state, for every death, I challenged the Director of SSS; I must know who killed the people and they must be arrested.”
