LEGISREPORTS NG: The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has warned the state governor, Nyesome Wike and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to desist from raising corruption allegations against ex governor Rotimi Amaechi in order not to deny him a cabinet position in President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
The party in a statement issued Sunday in Port Harcourt by its State Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, said that the latest
allegation by Wike and the PDP that Amaechi has foreign bank accounts is unfounded.
“These stories flooding the Internet and Social Media about former
Governor Amaechi are mere fabrications intended to ridicule him and
poison the mind of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is expected to make
Amaechi a key member of his cabinet,” the statement said.
The APC stated that for the avoidance of doubt, “Amaechi has no account with a Bank in Minnesota, USA, as alleged by
these devious rumour mongers. It is also not true that CNN’s Christiane Amanpour accused Amaechi of corruption, as being claimed by his detractors. Besides, at no time did Amaechi write to Bancorp or
any bank in Switzerland, stating that he deposited any funds in error. These are wicked lies concocted by evil-minded persons desperate to pull down Amaechi but who are bound to fail.”
The party expressed regret that some saboteurs within the party have made themselves available for use by Chief Wike in tarnishing Amaechi’s hard-earned reputation just because of pecuniary benefits.
“We wish to warn these saboteurs to stop playing Judas and return Wike’s money to him or be prepared to face the consequences with their new-found master whose wrongful occupation of the Rivers State
Government House will soon be ended by the State Governorship Election
Tribunal,” Rivers APC said.
