The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party on Wednesday called the bluff of the  immediate past governor of the state, Chibuike Amaechi, over a  purported lawsuit against it.

The party said it welcomed such a suit as it would offer it the opportunity to expose the former governor’s  alleged misdeeds in office.

The state Chairman of PDP, Felix Obuah, said that the lawsuit would avail Nigerians the chance to adjudge whether Amaechi is corrupt or a saint as he is 'hoodwinking those who do not know him very well to believe'.

Amaechi had said in a statement on Tuesday that he had sued the Peoples Democratic Party in the state, its Chairman, Chief Felix Obuah, and two others in an Abuja High Court over allegations that he embezzled $757m (N80billion) belonging to the state while in office.

He said  that he  sued the them for N300b damages alleging that he operated a private foreign account where he lodged the said public funds.

In his statement of claims in the suit, Amaechi stated that he did not steal the sum of $757million or N80 billion of Rivers State public funds and did not stash them away in Bancorp Bank in Minnesota in United States of America or stashed any state public funds in Switzerland.

He added that the Bancorp Bank in Minnesota in United States of America did not at any time reveal that he embezzled or misappropriated or connived in the embezzlement and misappropriation of monies meant for Rivers State people in the sum of $757million or N80 billion and stashed them away in his name with Bancorp Bank in Minnesota in United States of America as alleged by PDP and Obuah.

The Rivers State PDP described the litigation threat as diversionary in the light of shocking revelations, testimonies and discoveries of acts of lawlessness, fraudulent and injudicious spending of state resources produced before the Commission of Inquiry into the sale of valued assets of the state by his administration for which he was invited but he refused to appear to defend himself.

The party urged Nigerians not to be hoodwinked by the formers governor’s antics meant to confuse those who have no facts about him.
