Amaechi To Wike: Your award is Poisoned Chalice, I reject it

Official statement from Amaechi's camp:

...Confess that you lied against me about $43m Ikoyi mansion
In the past couple of days, Minister of Transportation and immediate past governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi has been inundated with calls and enquiries about a purported award/honour to him from Nyesom Wike, the current governor of Rivers State.

The minister was shown a publication of the Rivers State government indicating his name as one of many others to be given awards by Nyesom Wike.

But as at today, Amaechi has not received any communication from Nyesom Wike and/or Rivers State government in this respect.

Be that as it may, we want to state categorically that whatever Wike claims to be giving to Amaechi is a poisoned chalice that has been unequivocally rejected by the minister.

Firstly, the purported award itself is a contradiction of monumental proportions, a contradiction that can only come from a warped and perverted mind. From day one as governor, Wike has made it his …

Why Eating Catfish is Very Dangerous for Your Health

A practitioner at the Federal Medical Centre in Abuja, has warned the general public of the life-threatening repercussions of excessive consumption of catfish.
