|Hon. Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi|
Transportation and immediate past Governor of Rivers State Rt. Hon. Chibuike
Rotimi Amaechi has again insisted that the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom
Wike has no concrete evidence to prove his deceitful worn-out allegations of
corruption against him while he served as governor of the State.
maintained that he ran a transparent administration devoid of all the spurious
acts and practices Wike has been attributing to him.
to Traditional Rulers in Port Harcourt on Monday, Wike had lied that he
has overwhelming evidence of Amaechi’s corrupt acts while he was governor of
the State. However, the Minister has dismissed Wike’s claims as the same old,
false, provocative rabble-rousing of a distinctly delusional mind.
the statement, “Wike has nothing; we mean absolutely nothing concrete to prove
his fabricated claims. However, we are aware; as a matter of fact, it’s now
public knowledge that Wike has been forging and distorting a cache of documents
in his increasingly frantic efforts to denigrate Amaechi. This forgery and
contortion commenced immediately Wike assumed office as governor and it is
shocked a few days back when Livingstone Wechie, the young man Wike used to
accuse Amaechi of corruption and write false and frivolous petitions to the
National Assembly, EFCC etc, confessed freely and openly, that all the
documents he used to wrongfully portray Amaechi as corrupt when he governed
Rivers State, were phonies, forged documents given to him by Wike’s Rivers
State Government House.”
ludicrous and appalling that Wike is still talking about his credibility bereft
Commission of Inquiry, when Livingstone Wechie also admitted that the forged
documents was what was used as the template, the basis for the Justice Omereji
led Judicial Commission of Inquiry, an inquisition panel Wike set up early in
his administration to witch-hunt, malign and persecute Amaechi.
now used to Wike’s shameful charade whenever he says he has ‘evidence’ against
Amaechi. How can we forget in a hurry when Wike outrageously claimed he had
evidence to prove Amaechi’s ownership of the $43 million Ikoyi money and luxury
apartment? In spite of all the noise Wike made, all his over the top political
dramatization of Amaechi ownership of the Ikoyi money, Wike could not even go
to court to claim the money with his so-called evidence. Wike has suddenly gone
deaf and dumb on the Ikoyi money, many months after his 7-day ultimatum for the
federal government to give him the money or face the mother of all legal
take a character like Wike seriously, especially when he says he has evidence
against Amaechi? How can a governor talk so recklessly and irresponsibly?
continue to remind Rivers people that Wike’s antics are a clear attempt to
distract and divert attention from his mindless plundering of the resources of
the State and spate of Wike induced insecurity in Rivers State.
realize that every lie has an expiry date. Rivers people are tired and sick of
Wike’s fake stories of ‘Amaechi this, Amaechi that’, every day, rather, the
people want to know what happened to all the billions of Naira Wike has
collected from FAAC, Paris Club refund, internally-generated revenue and the
ones he borrowed,” the statement concluded.
