“If there is one place that the APC should win, it is Ogoni. But Nyesom Wike says he must win here. Since he is not God, he will fail. The battle is not here at all. The battle is in Ikwerre and Ahoada axis. So, he had better forget here,” he said.

The former governor said the support from the district stemmed from the developmental projects he sited in the area and the appointments given to sons and daughters of the area while he was governor.
He, therefore, charged Wike to either match his achievements in Ogoni land or supersede them.

Amaechi, who spoke on the number of indigent persons in the area given scholarships to study abroad while he was governor, accused Wike of repatriating them.
