APC Replies Gov Wike Over Attack On Amaechi

The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the education sector in Rivers State under the watch of Governor Nyesom Ezebunwo Wike has collapsed.

The APC stated this on Sunday in reaction to Wike’s allegation that his predecessor and Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi sponsored students’ protest against his government.

A statement on Sunday signed by Chukwuemeka Eze, spokesman to APC state chairman, said, “The total collapse of the education sector of Rivers State was further showcased by students of Secondary School cadre in the very heart of Port Harcourt when they decided to take their destiny in their hands by taking to the streets to protest.”

“TheY protested lack of teachers and classrooms blocks in their schools insisting that they be relocated to the model Secondary Schools built by the administration of Amaechi which Wike has kept under lock and key as they can’t continue to study under unfavourable environment any more.”

The party alleged that Wike has abandoned education in Rivers State and recently donated the sum of ₦500m to a private university “while the future of our children remains bleak.”

“We have not forgotten so soon how Wike wickedly stopped the scholarship scheme instituted by Amaechi to assist indigent and bright children of Rivers State to have a better future thereby forcing most of these students studying abroad into prostitution and other criminal acts in foreign countries.

“The protest and pleads from some of these students in the streets of London failed on deaf ears.

“To worsen the plight of the Education sector of the State, Wike appointed one political jobber named Mr. Tamunosisi Gogo Jaja who spends most of his time sleeping in his office instead of attending to files that have accumulated so much without any space to keep them to completely decimate the education system.

“With a Governor who detests education with a passion coupled with an inept Commissioner who lacks ideas on how to improve the sector why should anybody be shocked of the pitiable condition of our education sector in Rivers State under Wike.”


  1. In Education I don't think the governor has done well but I believe APC in the federal level are worse to be compare with. Tell me any of the APC state doing well excluding Lagos in terms of education? Even Lagos is so as a result of majority of the educational centers are private incorporated. Rural and Urbanization I think Governor Wike has done better.

  2. If it is true that Wike Donated 500m to a private university, then he has totally gotten his priorities wrong. When 2 elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers. Wike should just swallow his pride and do the needful instead of allowing innocent people to suffer . I don't know why the Nigerian Political Class lack respect for the masses.

  3. in Rivers there is no respect and the leader from there recognised this. All these their fight is just to shift focus from themselves,and deflect their responsibilities to the central government or perceive enemy,while they are busy looting the treasuries. Imagine the amount of money the former petroleum minister took. And coming to look at the reality on ground in Rivers State. I sincerely pity the ordinary people they need to wake up and see beyond their nose to demand responsible governance from their leader.They should not support these selfish leaders that are using their fight as a cover to futher loot and destroy the state. Rivers people wake up
