Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, told the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike to apologise to his predecessor and former boss, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi.
HURIWA said Wike should apologise to the former Minister of Transportation for what he described as needless political war of vendetta to Amaechi, who entrusted key offices to him while he (Amaechi) served as Governor.
Wike vowed to implement the recommendations of the judicial commission of inquiry concerning the sale of the State’s valued assets by the Amaechi administration on September 14th, 2015.
Also, the Justice George Omereji seven-man commission of inquiry concluded its proceeding on the matter over the weekend, warning that the former Minister and some members of his administration who evaded the panel should be prepared to bear the consequences of their action.
HURIWA accused the Commission of reaching predetermined conclusions and accusie Amaechi without hearing his own side of the story.
In a statement given by its national Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko,, HURIWA said it thinks “the politically motivated witch-hunt using certain forces in the judiciary against Amaechi is the source of the current political troubles and ‘karma’ afflicting Wike.”
HURIWA also mentioned that Governor Wike, in the last eight years, has become anti-workers and dictatorial.
Wike on Monday said that some aggrieved losers in the People Democratic Party, PDP, governorship primary for 2023 which produced former State Accountant-General, Sim Fubara as candidate, were leading an Abuja plot for his downfall.
During activities to celebrate former Governor Peter Odili at 74, Wike pointed at some of the party leaders who, on his 2021 birthday, indicated interest to fly the ticket, but failed in the end, as spearheading the gang up against him.
HURIWA advised Wike “to put an end to his cantankerous political warfare against his kinsman- Amaechi and end his administration as a democrat and not a quarrelsome tyrant.”
