Uchendu was recently declared the winner of the Rivers East senatorial election by the state election tribunal.
The APC chief , who made this remark during the unity rally /thanksgiving organised by the Obio /Akpor LGA caucus leader , Mr . Chikordi Dike , on Sunday , said no Rivers son had contributed more to his ( Uchendu) life than Amaechi , who is also the Minister of Transportation .
Uchendu said , “ There is no Rivers son that has made the kind of contribution Rotimi Amaechi has made in life . Wike said Amaechi behaves like a god, but the Bible said man is god to man .
“ If Amaechi has been the instrument of elevation and empowerment of many young people who were at the grassroots and now in the highest level of political career , is he not their god? And if he has helped people who testify as we are testifying today, for me, Amaechi is my god.
“ I must congratulate the new leadership of Obio /Akpor caucus and other caucuses from different LGAs . Looking at the crowd here today, it shows that the house is settled for a serious business in 2019.
“ By recovering my mandate , Rivers people now have an alternative voice . The truth is in the recorded memory in the political development of Ikwerre ethnic nationality.
“ Don’ t forget when Obio /Akpor people said they were not going to accept Nyesom Wike for his second tenure as the chairman of the council , Amaechi went on his knees at the residence of the late Eric Asor at Elelewon and pleaded for Wike to be given a second chance .
“ And the people accepted, from chairman to chief of staff and then minister; how else can man be god to man?”
