The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has reacted to comments made by Governor Nyesom Wike that sought to water down the contribution of Rotimi Amaechi to the state when he was Minister of Transportation.

Wike said his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi was a total failure as Minister of Transportation, saying he brought nothing to his state.

He made the comment at the inauguration of the re-constructed ultra-modern seven-storey office complex in Port Harcourt on Monday.

Speaking to newsmen at the APC secretariat in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, September 13, Darlington Nwauju, the acting state Publicity Secretary of the party rubbished the claims, describing it as “false and plot to blackmail the leader of the APC” in the state.

He insisted that the former Minister attracted both “Human capital development and infrastructural projects” to the state.

Nwauju listed the “Afam Power Project Construction, rehabilitation of section one to four of Enugu to Port Harcourt Expressway, Bodo Bonny Bridge, reconstruction of Port Harcourt to Maiduguri rail line, development of Eastern Ports, Naval War College in Ubima, and the Bonny Deep Seaport Project” as some of the projects attracted by Amaechi to the state.
