Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has berated some Ikwerre politicians who use the Ethnic Nationality for political advantage, only to turn around  and disown it when it suits them.

He said: "Whenever it doesn't suit them , they fight against Ikwerre Ethnic Nationality ".

The governor described the Late Elder Amadi as a true  Ikwerre man who worked for the progress of the area.

"While we were growing  up in the community, he was a model to all of us. He was committed  to education and touched  people's lives in Rumuepirikom. 

"He was a complete Ikwerre man in all ramifications", he said.

The governor also said that Late Elder  Engr Lawrence Amadi was a complete party man who remained faithful to the party till his death.

He said: "He stood firm with Ikwerre Chiefs and Elders to support me to the end."
