…Rubbishes reports on foreign accounts
…Lambasts Wike, APC saboteurs over baseless allegations
The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has
dismissed the corruption allegations against immediate past Governor
of the State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi, with a wave of the hand.
The party in a statement issued Sunday morning in Port Harcourt by its
State Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, said that the latest
allegation by the wailing Care-taker Governor of Rivers State, Chief
Nyesom Wike camp that Amaechi has foreign bank accounts lacks
“These stories flooding the Internet and Social Media about former
Governor Amaechi are mere fabrications intended to ridicule him and
poison the mind of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is expected to make
Amaechi a key member of his cabinet. For the avoidance of doubt,
Amaechi has no account with a Bank in Minnesota, USA, as alleged by
these devious rumour mongers. It is also not true that CNN’s
Christiane Amanpour accused Amaechi of corruption, as being claimed by
his detractors. Besides, at no time did Amaechi write to Bancorp or
any bank in Switzerland, stating that he deposited any funds in error.
These are wicked lies concocted by evil-minded persons desperate to
pull down Amaechi but who are bound to fail,” Rivers APC said.
The party expressed regret that some saboteurs within the party have
made themselves available for use by Chief Wike in tarnishing
Amaechi’s hard-earned reputation just because of pecuniary benefits.
“We wish to warn these saboteurs to stop playing Judas and return
Wike’s money to him or be prepared to face the consequences with their
new-found master whose wrongful occupation of the Rivers State
Government House will soon be ended by the State Governorship Election
Tribunal,” Rivers APC said.
It assured Amaechi of the party’s unflinching support, assuring him
that he would be vindicated at the end of the day.
