Minister of Transportation and former Rivers State Governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, has said that it is too early to assess the performance of his successor and current Governor, Chief Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike.
This is even as he stated that he will write to the management of the University of Port Harcourt to name the Faculty of Humanities after the late literary icon, Captain Elechi Amadi.
Amaechi, who spoke to newsmen shortly after paying a condolence visit to the family of late Amadi at Mgbodo-Aluu community in Ikwerre local government area of the state, however regretted the number of persons that were killed in the state in the last one year.
The minister said, “It is too early to assess Nyesom Wike. It is too early to assess him; it is just one year. You cannot be comparing his one year to my one year, let’s allow him. Maybe, he will achieve it in his second year; maybe, he will achieve it in his third year”.
“But, the number of people that have been killed so far, the number of people that have been beheaded, in my first term; I didn’t see anybody beheaded, neither did I see anybody killed by these criminals.”
