    “Governor Wike clashes with Security details attached to Minister Amaechi”
    I think this is becoming too much. Rotimi Amaechi should understand that he is no more the Governor of River State. The man he, Amaechi wanted to impose as the Governor failed the elections. Let the man who won the elections rule.
    Imposition of candidates is one of the reasons why corruption keeps striving in Nigeria; because you impose someone who would not probe you, even if it is clear that you embezzled the State’s fund.
    His time has come and passed. He should give peace a chance, and let peace reign in River State.
