Amaechi Attacks Wike, Says $150million Allegation, A Fallacy

Listen to article

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

“fallacious concoction.”
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

supercilious allegations.
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.
