Corruption Allegation: Amaechi has been vindicated — Rivers APC

…Berates Wike over failed attempt to demonise Ex-Governor

Former Governor of Rivers State, Rt. Hon. Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi, has been vindicated in the corruption allegation levelled against him by his successor, Chief Nyesom Wike, the State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said on Sunday.

Rivers APC noted in a statement signed by the Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, that the allegations, which it dismissed as spurious, have been successfully refuted by Amaechi through past Rivers State Government functionaries who served under him.

“Immediate past Secretary to the Rivers State Government, George Feyi, and the Commissioner for Finance, Dr. Chamberlain Peterside, in a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari did not only dismiss the allegations as a figment of the imagination of Wike and his cohorts but also provided concrete proof that Amaechi ran the affairs of Rivers State using transparent financial procedures that cannot be faulted by any well-meaning person or organisation,” Rivers APC said in the statement issued in the State Capital, Port Harcourt.

“As Messrs Feyi and Peterside made clear in their letter to President Buhari, these fabricated allegations against Amaechi, sponsored by Chief Wike and spread through the State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and such amorphous groups as The Integrity Group are borne out of malice, with the sole aim to malign the integrity of Amaechi and his administration so as to poison President Buhari’s mind and discourage him from appointing Amaechi into his cabinet,” Rivers APC said.

The party said that with the refutation of the satanic allegations by Messrs Feyi and Peterside, it is now very clear to both President Buhari and Nigerians that Amaechi is just one of our few leaders that ran a corruption-free and transparent administration during his tenure as the Governor of Rivers State.

“Thus, Chief Wike has failed woefully in his desperate bid to tarnish the good image of Amaechi. Surely, President Buhari cannot be deceived by the antics of Wike and his cohorts seeking to stop him from making Amaechi part of his administration in recognition of his well-known managerial acumen and the role he played as Director General of the Muhammadu Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation in mobilising Nigerians to cast their ballots for the APC Presidential Candidate during the March 28 presidential polls,” Rivers APC said.
