Governor Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that national development has been stunted because of mentally challenged Ministers like the Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.

The governor said the recent outings of Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi confirms that his mental status is degenerating very fast.

He spoke at the Government House Port Harcourt on Wednesday when the management of the Silverbird Group presented his nomination letter as the Silverbird Man of the Year, 2017.

He said: “Former Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has a serious mental case. This is what makes it difficult for him to appreciate the seriousness of security issues .

“That is the kind of people that we have in the Federal Cabinet. With such people, it is impossible for the country to make progress. He needs urgent medical attention “.

Governor Wike said based on Amaechi’s logic, President Muhammadu Buhari needs to resign because of the nationwide breakdown of security. He said national security is the direct responsibility of the President. Continue reading

WENGER BLASTS ARSENAL LEGEND THIERY HENRY, MOURINHO HITS OUT AT MAN U LEGEND SCHOLES

Report by Nelson Dafe

Arsene Wenger

Two top Premier League managers, Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger and Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho have had enough of the criticisms coming to their respective clubs by former and well respected great players of the the clubs.
First it was Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger who took a swipe at Arsenal club legend Thiery Henry after the Sky Sports analyst suggested that there was disunity in the Arsenal team.
After Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez scored against Crystal Palace in an away Premier League fixture for the Gunners, he seemed to gesture to teammate Alexandre Lacazzette about some of his other teammates not joining in the celebration of the goal.
A number of pundits seized on this and claimed that all wasn’t well between the players and that there must be some ill feelings against Sanchez being held by some players.
One of such pundits is Henry, who made a phenomenal rise in the game under Wenger and won lots of individual and club honors with Arsene’s Arsenal. He had said after Chilean attacker Sanchez scored that:“There is a division in the team. He is asking them to come and celebrate. ‘Why are you not coming? Don’t you want t celebrate?’.
“I noticed it. Sanchez made me notice it. It was like he thought he was alone.”
After Arsenal’s late draw away against West From on New Year’s Eve, Wenger responded on Henry’s comments by insinuating that the Arsenal legend makes unintelligent comments. Wenger said:”We focus on our own problems, that’s the only thing.
“There are people who are paid to talk, it’s difficult sometimes when you are paid to talk, to talk, to talk and only say things that are true and intelligent.”
If Wenger’s comments about a retired great player of his club was surprisingly harsh, Manchester United’s manager Jose Mourinho’s put down of a very well respected Man Utd legend Paul Scholes was way more astonishing in its harshness.
