According to him, “I have no personal problem (with Amaechi), it’s just that people want to cause a problem in Rivers state.
“I won the election in 2015. Of all the manipulation they did, what did they achieve? I don’t have any problem. Somebody said I should settle, what am I settling? Is it a personal thing?”
“You have done your own eight years, let another person finish and go. Must you continue to dictate who is the governor of Rivers state?
