A press release from the office of the Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi has stressed the importance of rotational governorship in the state. This is especially going to infuriate Nyesom Wike who is eyeing the Governorship seat. He explained that apart from the Ikwere ethnic nationality, any other ethnic group in the state could contest next year’s governorship election.
