Amaechi Attacks Wike, Says $150million Allegation, A Fallacy
Former Governor of Rivers State and Minister of Transportation, Mr.
Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, has described the statement credited to Governor
Nyesom Wike that he spent $150 million during the general election as a
Amaechi said it was sad enough that Wike chose the Church, a sacred place
to tell bogus lies against his person in his attempts to continue to
denigrate his name in the media.
In a statement by the media office of the minister, Amaechi said that it
was worrisome and sad that Governor Wike picked a church, a sacred temple
of God, to tell his tales.
The statement said:
Sadly, on Sunday, February 7, 2016, Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers
State in furtherance of his administration's one-point agenda, yet again,
continued his grossly irresponsible, repugnant and contemptuous, albeit,
feckless mission of denigrating and disparaging the person and office of
the immediate past governor of the state, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi
Amaechi, who is now the minister of transportation.
The 'story-story' this time is about another phantom $150,000,000(One
Hundred and Fifty Million Dollars) that Amaechi purportedly stole from
Rivers State government coffers and siphoned to his party, the All
Progressives Congress(APC) within eighteen days, from December 1 to 18 of
2014. Sadly again, Wike picked a church, a sacred temple of God to tell
his new imaginary tale, another bogus, fallacious concoction.
This new scurrilous fabrication by Governor Wike is in sync with the
one-point agenda of the Wike administration, which is to throw as much mud
as possible at former governor Amaechi, hoping that some may at least
All sorts of spurious stories about alleged corruption and stealing of
state funds against the Amaechi administration, have been bandied in the
media with no attempt to substantiate or prove these distorted false
claims that completely makes nonsense of common sense.
Even, when Amaechi challenged the Wike administration and its agents to
use any constitutionally available legal process or procedure to prove
their jaundice, deceitful allegations against him and his administration,
they have rather elected to do their own corruption probe, trial and
conviction in the media; and now, even inside our solemn places of worship
(churches). How callous! Why would a government be so determined to
desecrate and destroy every institution, all in the name of playing
It continues to baffle us, like most right-thinking Nigerians that
Governor Wike will stand in a church- a solemn place of worship- and
carelessly, brusquely tell such a profound lie. He condescendingly
descended to falsely and indecorously shout corruption against Amaechi,
without providing a single shred of evidence to back his claims. How
Pray, Governor Wike, who collected the $150million on behalf of APC? From
which State Government account(s) was the $150million taken from? How was
the $150million taken and given to APC? Was it by wired transfer from
Rivers State government account(s) to APC account(s)? So many questions,
if Wike had attempted to answer, would have made nonsense of his
Rivers people and Nigerians are indeed sick and tired of this old worn-out
trick of Governor Wike to hoodwink and distract Rivers people from the
real issues. Making a new spurious allegation of corruption against
Amaechi every day, will not make Rivers people forget that most of the
beautiful, working institutions built by the Amaechi administration are
now been allowed to rot away in spite of the billions of naira that had
accrued to the State and the billions of naira borrowed by Wike.
Rivers people want to know why weeds and grasses have taken over the
beautiful schools built by Amaechi? Why the standard working health
facilities Amaechi built and left behind are now looking desolate and
Rivers people are concerned and worried that crime and criminals are back
and have taken over. No quantum of mudslinging and attempt to disparage
the inspiring legacies of the Amaechi years in Rivers State would distract
Rivers people from these issues.
