Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said he has no personal problem with his predecessor and minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.

Wike, who disclosed this yesterday while speaking at the second day of  the 12 All Nigeria Editors Conference (ANEC) in Port Harcourt, however, said he and Amaechi differed politically because they belonged to different parties.

He said, “There is nothing personal.We differ politically because we belong to different political politics. We want peace in the state and it is my desire to ensure that the state is peaceful.”

The governor stated that former President Goodluck Jonathan did something special to ensure peace in the country by conceding defeat during the 2015 general election.

Wike said, “Jonathan should be commended for this single act, people should emulate this move to ensure peace in the country.”

The governor, who noted that Amaechi was his boss as governor during which period they had good times serving the state, said, “We should make sacrifices for peace. The state must move on. We only differ politically and that should not be to the level that will destroy the state.
