the previous governor of Rivers State now Minister of Transportation has denied hyperlink to the&#a hundred and sixty;$ forty three million in a luxury apartment in Lagos.
the industrial and financial Crimes Commissioner, EFCC had on Wednesday uncover a big amount of money in Ikoyi Lagos which was imagined to have belonged to Amaechi.
The Minister also denied possession of the luxurious rental during which the cash used to be discovered, contrary to his successor Nyesom Wike who claimed on Friday night that the money and apartment belonged to the Rivers State executive because it used to be looted by using Amaechi.
In a statement launched with the aid of his Media place of work on Saturday, Amaechi described the claims as malicious, frivolous and another failed strive by Wike to divert attention from the mess he has created in Rivers State.
Amaechi alleged that the present governor, Wike loot the state dry, including that the state is presently in obstacle as the governor is at a loss for words.
He said ““Wike has stolen Rivers State dry. Wike and his gang have frittered billions and billions of Naira of Rivers individuals cash away. Rivers State is forever in drawback, the state in a multitude as Wike has made a complete mess of governance in the State. That child who sits there as governor is perplexed, he doesn’t be aware of what to do. Wike’s only resolution is to assault Amaechi.”
“on the grounds that he became governor, Wike sleeps and wakes up on a regular basis, with a sole, one-level agenda to assault and denigrate Rotimi Amaechi, no matter how ridiculous and silly he sounds.&#one hundred sixty; everyday in Rivers State, there’s one frivolous, false story of what Amaechi did or didn’t do. similar sample, the identical blatant lies with no proof, same old concocted stories of corruption allegations in opposition to Amaechi informed with completely different flavours. At this charge, if Wike is unable to perform his spousal tasks, he’ll blame it on Amaechi. sure, that’s how despicably low he can go in his consuming fixation to throw mud at Amaechi.”
“This latest outburst by way of Wike is conventional of him. we’re mindful that Wike first tried to float the pretend news of Amaechi’s ownership of the recovered $ 43million and the Ikoyi house within the social media the usage of his minions and lackeys, spending large sums of Rivers money on the failed mission. His minions and lackeys had been calling journalists, bloggers and media businesses to run the faux story with guarantees of virtually irresistible mouth-watering compensation for the usage of the faux story. When that failed and the story didn’t achieve traction that was when Wike determined to hurriedly grasp the clicking convention Friday night, to rant and spew his outright lies, once more without providing any proof of Amaechi’s possession of both the property and the money.”
“For readability and emphasis, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi shouldn’t be the owner of the $ 43million and the Ikoyi condo in which the cash was once recovered from. Amaechi has no industry, hyperlink or connection to the money or property. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi does no longer know who owns the money or Ikoyi condominium.”
“Wike’s malicious allegation of corruption towards Amaechi within the sale of the gasoline generators just isn’t new. This false claim has been punctured again and again with tips and proof of the switch funds for the power vegetation into Rivers State executive accounts via Sahara energy. The data of how the dollars have been spent and what it was spent on are in the information of the State government. Amaechi has absolutely no business or any interest in anyway in Sahara energy. the company was once already a thriving trade concern ahead of Amaechi’s emergence as governor of Rivers State in 2007.
“We urge all right-pondering members of the general public to completely fail to remember all the false, politically encouraged no-proof claims by means of Nyesom Wike and his minions as it issues Amaechi and the $ 43million and Ikoyi property. The false accusations via Wike is only diversionary, a political smear marketing campaign in opposition to Amaechi by way of Wike, while he steals Rivers State blind.
“The pretend claims is a figment of the imagination of Nyesom Wike, an ignoble fellow who’s so reckless, irresponsible, and disgraceful, and has debased the high workplace he holds in trust for the individuals. Wike is a rabble-rouser and must now not be taken severely. He has made several false claims like this in the latest past and by no means went the whole size to prove it as a result of he had no proof. Many would keep in mind how Wike was screaming all over the place nationwide television stations just ahead of the Rivers State legislative Rerun elections that he had an explosive video, containing earth-shaking revelations and he would express the video on nationwide tv. until date, no video, just speak talk and speak, telling increasingly lies.”
“over again, we problem Wike to charge Amaechi to court docket if he has any shred of evidence that the money belongs to Rivers State and used to be kept in the Ikoyi condominium with the aid of Amaechi. but like his numerous frivolous accusations previously, we all know he gained’t go to courtroom. He has nothing to substantiate his blatant lies. This Wike’s latest tale like his earlier ones is a big sham, a disgraceful political drama, and a marketing campaign of calumny to defame and break the sterling popularity of Rotimi Amaechi. this is now Wike’s sole life ambition.”
He asked Nigerians to&#a hundred and sixty;be aware that Wike’s reckless, irresponsible and fictitious tirade against the President Buhari administration at his media briefing of Friday is a declaration of conflict in opposition to the Federal govt.
This according to him, has been his regular previous time in recent occasions, making false allegations against the Federal executive and perilous the President Buhari administration with hearth and brimstone”, the statement concluded.
