Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has mocked his arch-rival and predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi, over the alleged leaked tapes released on Friday.
Amaechi, who is also the Director-General of the Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation, was allegedly caught on tape criticising President Muhammadu Buhari and lamenting the rising rate of poverty in the country.
In a series of tweets on Sunday, Wike said the alleged audio leaks showed that Amaechi supports Buhari for monetary gains, describing him as “a hypocrite.”
Wike tweeted, “It is only a greedy man that supports a world-renowned failure because of monetary gains.
“I have known Amaechi from day one and greed has separated him from everyone he was once close to. The leaked tapes say it all.”
