THE supervising Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike, on Sunday gave the Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi a condition for peace and before the structure of the Peoples Democratic Party could be returned to the governor.

Wike said if Amaechi desired the state PDP structure the governor should hand over his office to Mr. Celestine Omehia, who was at the helm of affairs in the state before the October 2007 court ruling, which removed him from office.

The minister spoke during the inauguration of the chapter executives of the Grassroots Development Initiative in the Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area.

He maintained that the state PDP was ready to hand over its structure to the governor if he was ready to surrender his position to Omehia.

Wike said, “As far as the PDP structure in Rivers State is concerned, nobody gave us any PDP structure. We fought for our mandate and we won in court.

“If they say that they should take the structure from us after the court had given judgment, therefore, the PDP should also take the governorship in 2007 and return it to the man who was serving as governor at that time.
