Amaechi Rejects Wike’s Probe Of His Administration, Vows To Use Every Legal Means To Protect Himself

Nyesom Wike, Rivers State Governor

Former Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, has described the probe of his administration by Governor Nyesom Wike as a witch-hunt.

In a statement by his media office, Amaechi said the achievement of his administration were evident for all to see. He would therefore not welcome any fraudulent probe by his successor.

“Amaechi will use every constitutional and legal means available to protect his name and image from this smear campaign against him by this directionless, purposeless Wike-led government. As governor, Amaechi served his people well and the good things he did with the resources of the state are visible all over the state.

“This so called Wike’s probe of Amaechi is dead on arrival. All the noise Wike is making is to grab media headlines with his lies of monumental corruption against Amaechi. It is all drama made for the media. What is playing out is a script written and directed by Wike.

“While it is no longer in doubt what would be the report of Wike’s sham probe commission, what may shock Nigerians is the extent Wike has gone and is ready to go to manufacture stories of corrupt practices and the kind of bogus tales of corruption against Amaechi that he will soon be feeding the nation,” the statement read.

    If Amaechi has nothing to fear why is he making so much noise. If his conscience is clear he has nothing to worry about. Wike and Amaechi should show maturity and stop this “mudslinging”.Let the relevant authorities look into whether the treasury was looted and let,s get on with turning Rivers State to the Jewel of Nigeria. God will show us the way.

“There are so many leakages in the Lagos State Government purse. Take this AlphaBeta; who owns this AlphaBeta? What is the essence of the AlphaBeta? Where else in the world would you have an Inland Revenue Service, who have their own staff who are supposed to go out and collect the fees, but you have an independent company to be supposedly collecting the internally generated revenue from our state?

“It grosses around N50bn (about $130m) a month and you know how much that company (AlphaBeta) is paid 15% of it, that’s N7.5bn in thirty days going to the company, that is a leakage, that is sacrilegious.”
