The Buhari’s led administration has come under intense criticisms as what many describes as partial war on corruption.
Given, President Buhari is fighting corruption, but he’s is a selective fight. It is however the best ever anti-corruption drive the nation has witnessed.
It is in this light that the Rivers State Government have accused the Minister of Transport, Right Honorable Rotimi Amaechi of official graft.
The State Commissioner for Information, Dr. Tam-George alleged that Amaechi left “The most abandoned projects in the history of the State.”
The commissioner stated that Rotimi Amaechi took an Agricultural loan from the Central Bank with any trace of how the funds were expended.
Dr. Tam-George however contrasted that with Governor Nyesom Wike who loaned ₦2 billion from the State and has since registered 35,000 beneficiaries.
Aside from this, the Rivers State Government says Amaechi embezzled over ₦3 trillion naira!
APC swiftly denied the allegations, describing it as unfounded.
According to the Pubilcity person for the APC in Rivers State, Mr. Chris Finebone, “For once, you guys should ask the Commissioner what was used for those uncompleted projects he claimed was abandoned.
“It is important he cross-check his records so that he can overcome his little dream world of make-belief,” Finebone stated.
Recall that last month, the People’s Democratic Party described as “Shocking and wicked” the countless cases of diverted public funds by Amaechi.
The State PDP chairman of PDP, Bro. Felix Obuah, had stated that “This was the kind of fraud the EFCC should be investigating so as to recover loots.
“Notwithstanding the collaboration between those responsible for the parlous state of the public schools must be investigated.
“Anti-corruption agents and the Rivers State government should not leave any stone unturned in exposing illegalities discovered anywhere in the State under the administration of Amaechi.
“Those behind them, no matter their social status, should be exposed and prosecuted,” Obuah stated.
