Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike has attacked his Predecessor and current minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi over an earlier accusation that he(wike) drinks a lot.
Wike, during a recent address, tackled Amaechi over the comment adding that it was better “to drink and come out with a first class than not drink and come out with a pass”.
In his words; “Somebody that says he is a minister was talking and said he does not drink..Who told you to drink?”
“See the way you are behaving, if you drink then what would happen?” Wike said.
He continued; “A man drinks in the university, he comes out with first class. A man does not drink, he comes out with pass, which one would you choose? Is it not better to tell your son to drink and come out with First class?”
“Yet again, a man drinks but he does not destroy peoples’ homes and a man does not drink but he destroys peoples’ homes..which one do you prefer? is it not to drink and not destroy Peoples’ homes? if you are my friend, please drink so you don’t destroy Peoples’ homes” he said.
