Port Harcourt - There are indications that Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has perfected plans to protest against the ministerial nomination of ex-Governor Rotimi Amaechi by President Muhammadu Buhari, reports The Sun

The governor has directed his loyalists to organise a protest in the National Assembly against Amaechi’s nomination as minister.
