You Are A Liar, PDP Tells Amaechi …Says It's Vindicated By U.S Bank Revelations Of Amaechi's N80b Loot

Listen to article

The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, says the recent

claim by the former Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, that he left

behind as balances in the State Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) account

with some banks in the State a total of N7.5billion does not go down well

with the Party, as there was no such amount in the State treasury on

assumption of office by the current administration of Governor Wike on May

29, 2015.
The PDP describes Amaechi's claim as false, unfounded and indefensible,

pointing out flaws, inconsistency and uncertainty in the former Governor's

statement where he said he left a total of N7.5billion “but by the time

you pull all these (accounts) together, we are looking at readily

available cash in the region of eight to ten billion naira left for the

Wike administration”.
The Party in a statement signed by Jerry Needam, Spokesman to the Chairman

of the PDP in Rivers State reiterates its position that the former

governor stole billions of Dollars and looted assets belonging to the

State, some of which he used in funding the activities of the All

Progressives Congress, APC, and also lodged in several of his private

foreign accounts.
Supporting its argument, the Party calls the attention of the public to

the recent revelation by the Bancorp Bank, Minnesota, United States, in

which it has communicated to the Nigerian Government an alleged $757

million Dollars (N80 Billion) domiciled in an account in Amaechi's name by

one of Nigerians banks, explaining that the Minnesota bank intends to

return Rotimi Amaechi's loot, which was part of the stolen funds by the

former Governor, who in the letter is described as the most corrupt

Nigerian Governor.
The Bancorp Bank letter to President Buhari stated that the said transfer

to both banks in Minnesota and Switzerland were for the purchase of

security Helicopters, spraying of Mosquito insecticides and for the

purchase of a residence for Mr. Rotimi Amaechi in America.

Not done with the above instances, the PDP further explained that Rivers

State was bankrupt under Amaechi, even when he was receiving about Six

billion Naira monthly as IGR, demanding answers from Amaechi on why he

could not pay Civil servants, Pensioners, TIMARIV workers, Students'

Scholarship, Contractors, Teachers at the Nne Krubo Model Secondary

School, Eleme among others, for several months when he still had the said

amount he claimed he left in the State's treasury.
It is on record that the former Governor admitted that Rivers State was

broke and that “there was nothing for Wike to work with because the State

was broke”.
Expressing concern why the long delay in making his claim public, the PDP

challenges the former Governor to substantiate his claims and to a public

debate if he would be taken seriously.
The PDP therefore, calls on the public not to believe the concocted and

fallacious claims of former Governor Amaechi, as there was no such amount

left behind by his administration that even deliberately refused to

collaborate or have an interface with the May 29 Transition Committee on

Governor Nyesom Wike, adding that there are enough evidence on several

corrupt actions and the monumental looting carried out by Chibuike Amaechi

and his aides, which must be recovered.
