    The battle between Governor Wike of Rivers state and his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi, has remained endless - Despite the accusations and counter-accusations, the governor has approved Amaechi as one of those to be honoured on May 27 In spite of the long-lasting squabble between them, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state is to honour his immediate predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi. According to a Premium Times report, Amaechi, the minister of Transport, is number 18 among the 29 people to be honoured by the government for their contributions to the development of the state. It is not too clear if Amaechi would attend the event mapped out as part of the 50th anniversary of the creation of the state. His spokesperson, David Iyofor, said he was not aware of this.

The political war between Wike and Amaechi started once the former was appointed minister of Education under former President Goodluck Jonathan Wike, a former Chief of Staff to Amaechi, was said to have been pursuing his bid to replace Amaechi as governor, but the latter had his own plan. This disagreement brought tension to the state. Rivers has remained so almost two years after the election with many political leaders assassinated. NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Minister Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi reacted to the allegation by Governor Nyesom Wike that he created a new cult group in the state. He asked Wike to be ready to face the wrath of the law after leaving office and ultimately the wrath of God when no constitutional immunity could protect him. Wike accused Amaechi of inaugurating a new cult group with the aim of creating security crisis in the state ahead of 2019 general elections. On Monday, May 22, the governor asked the security agencies to call the minister to order just as he vowed that the group would be resisted by the law-abiding people of the state.
