…on the time Amaechi left place of job, R/S used to be getting less than N10b monthly allocation
The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State has expressed dismayed that two years after the 2015 elections, Gov. Nyesom Wike remains to be carrying on with his style of campaigns stuffed with bare-confronted lies and misrepresentation of tips to unsuspecting Rivers people.
The above was in reaction to what Governor Wike said day ago.
The governor the day before today (Sunday) advised the Synod of Anglican Church in the home of God that the administration of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi used to be receiving between N27b and N30b monthly federal allocation while the present federal executive has cut the allocation for the State beneath his administration. He blamed the alleged transfer on makes an attempt to sabotage his executive.
The APC in a remark as of late mentioned, “firstly, if the Amaechi administration obtained anything else close to N25b right through his 8-yr tenure it should be for lower than 6 months in his first tenure when Nyesom Wike was Chief of body of workers to former Gov. Chibuike Amaechi. That was when oil value used to be at its perfect and the over 300 oil wells taken away by means of the Goodluck Jonathan govt had been nonetheless property of Rivers State.
“For more than three years of the Amaechi 2d tenure after Soku and different oil wells had been taken and transferred to different states coupled with dwindling oil prices and production levels, the government then used to be receiving less than N10b monthly allocations up till 2015.
“If Gov. Wike is receiving not up to N10b allocations lately, he is partially answerable for the fate the State is facing. He encouraged the Jonathan administration to take away Rivers oil wells believing that he was undoing Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi. it would be recalled that the previous governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi had previous warned Gov Wike of what he (Wike) is complaining about today. Now, the rooster has come to roost, Gov. Wike must care for it and keep us his display of verbal indiscretion.
“more considerably is the fact that Gov. Nyesom Wike, having efficiently concealed the budgets of Rivers State from the people for the 2d yr, has also refused to tell Rivers those who Rivers State remaining month obtained the best sum of N14.5b Paris mortgage Refund from the Buhari administration.
“as a substitute of applauding the Buhari govt for several bailouts money, suggested refunds and basic situation for the price range of states of Nigeria, Rivers State inclusive, Gov. Wike has fairly chosen to chunk the finger that feeds him. this isn’t surprising; in any case, the governor has always been that particularly to his benefactor, Chibuike Amaechi.
“The APC believes that Gov. Nyesom Wike is in basic terms diverting consideration from being clear with the budget of Rivers State by means of making deceptive statements to Rivers people even in the hallowed house of God.”
