Amaechi says Wike is responsible for all those who died in Rivers State Election.

Wike and Amaechi trade worlds.The war of words between outgoing Rivers State governor Rotimi Amaechi and incoming Governor Nyesom Wike continues.
Outgoing Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi during his 50th birthday thanksgiving service at the Corpus Christi Cathedral in Port Harcourt told Most Rev, Dr. Camillus Etokudoh, the Catholic Bishop of Port Harcourt Diocese, who had pleaded with him during the thanksgiving service to forgive Nyesom Wike, the State governor-elect and let peace
reign for the sake of the people told the Bishop he cannot and will not forgive Wike until those that died during the last elections in the State get justice because the deaths were caused by Wike. He says though in Catholic Church’s doctrines, no one is allowed to oppose the view of a Bishop, but the same Catholic law also says that justice comes before forgiveness. Continue…  

“My Lordship talked about forgiveness. In the Catholic Church you don’t oppose the views of your bishop. His words represent an order. If you oppose him you may be barred from taking Holy Communion.

“You are not a true Catholic if you don’t receive the Holy Communion. But Your Lordship, the same Catholic doctrine also states that justice comes before forgiveness.

“All those that were killed during the last general elections must get justice. Their families must get justice. Our party, the All Progressives Congress, must get justice first at the petition election tribunal. Our mandate must be retrieved at the tribunal.

“I am surprised that My Lordship congratulated Nyesom Wike here today. I am using this opportunity to call on the Church to join the APC in praying to God so that we can reclaim our mandate.

“Reclaiming our mandate at the election petition tribunal will represent a measure of justice. We must seek justice before reconciliation,” the governor said.
