Amaechi Slams Wike, Says He Knows Nothing About Seized N13bn

Minister of Transportation and immediate past
governor of Rivers State Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi
Amaechi has dismissed the false claims by his
successor Nyesom Wike that the $43 million found
in a luxury apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos belongs to
him. Wike and Amaechi Wike, in a suspicious, hurriedly arranged press
conference on Friday night, told journalists that
‘the money in question belongs to the former
Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.’
Wike also insinuated that the ‘houses’ in Ikoyi
belong to Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi. Amaechi in a statement titled ‘$43MILLION TALE:
AMAECHI SLAMS WIKE’ released by his Media
Office on Saturday, Amaechi described the claims
as malicious, frivolous and another failed attempt
by Wike to divert attention from the mess he has
created in Rivers State. According to the statement:
“Wike has stolen Rivers State dry. Wike and his
gang have frittered billions and billions of Naira of
Rivers people money away. Rivers State is
perpetually in crisis, the state in a mess as Wike has
made a total mess of governance in the State. That child who sits there as governor is confused, he
doesn’t know what to do. Wike’s only solution is
to attack Amaechi.” “Since he became governor, Wike sleeps and
wakes up everyday, with a sole, one-point agenda
to attack and denigrate Rotimi Amaechi, no matter
how ridiculous and silly he sounds. Everyday in
Rivers State, there is one frivolous, false story of
what Amaechi did or didn’t do. Same pattern, the same blatant lies with no proof, same old
concocted stories of corruption allegations against
Amaechi told with different flavours. At this rate, if Wike is unable to perform his
spousal duties, he will blame it on Amaechi. Yes,
that’s how despicably low he can go in his
consuming fixation to throw mud at Amaechi.” “This latest outburst by Wike is typical of him. We
are aware that Wike first tried to float the fake
news of Amaechi’s ownership of the recovered $
43million and the Ikoyi house in the social media
using his minions and lackeys, spending huge
sums of Rivers money on the failed project. His minions and lackeys were calling journalists,
bloggers and media organizations to run the fake
story with promises of almost irresistible mouth-
watering compensation for using the fake story.
When that failed and the story didn’t gain traction
that was when Wike decided to hurriedly hold the press conference Friday night, to rant and spew
his outright lies, yet again without providing any
proof of Amaechi’s ownership of both the
property and the money.” “For clarity and emphasis, Chibuike Rotimi
Amaechi is not the owner of the $43million and the
Ikoyi apartment in which the money was
recovered from. Amaechi has no business, link or
connection to the money or property. Chibuike
Rotimi Amaechi does not know who owns the money or Ikoyi apartment.”
“Wike’s malicious allegation of corruption against
Amaechi in the sale of the Gas Turbines is not new. This false claim has been punctured repeatedly
with facts and evidence of the transfer payments
for the power plants into Rivers State government
accounts by Sahara Energy. The records of how
the funds were spent and what it was spent on are
in the records of the State government. Amaechi has absolutely no business or any interest
whatsoever in Sahara Energy. The company was
already a thriving business concern before
Amaechi’s emergence as governor of Rivers State
in 2007. “We urge all right-thinking members of the public
to completely disregard all the false, politically
motivated no-proof claims by Nyesom Wike and
his minions as it concerns Amaechi and the $
43million and Ikoyi property. The false accusations by Wike is purely
diversionary, a political smear campaign against
Amaechi by Wike, while he steals Rivers State
blind. The fake claims is a figment of the
imagination of Nyesom Wike, an ignoble fellow
who’s so reckless, irresponsible, and disgraceful, and has debased the high office he holds in trust
for the people. Wike is a rabble-rouser and should
not be taken seriously. He has made several false
claims like this in the recent past and never went
the whole length to prove it because he had no
proof. Many would recall how Wike was screaming all over national television stations just
before the Rivers State legislative Rerun elections
that he had an explosive video, containing earth-
shaking revelations and he would show the video
on national TV. Till date, no video, just talk talk
and talk, telling more and more lies.” “Yet again, we challenge Wike to charge Amaechi
to court if he has any shred of evidence that the
money belongs to Rivers State and was kept in the
Ikoyi apartment by Amaechi. But like his
numerous frivolous accusations in the past, we
know he won’t go to court. He has nothing to substantiate his blatant lies. This Wike’s recent tale
like his previous ones is a big sham, a disgraceful
political drama, and a campaign of calumny to
defame and destroy the sterling reputation of
Rotimi Amaechi. This is now Wike’s sole life
ambition.” “Finally, we want Nigerians to note that Wike’s
reckless, irresponsible and fictitious tirade against
the President Buhari administration at his media
briefing of Friday is a declaration of war against
the Federal Government. This has been his regular
past time in recent times, making false allegations against the Federal government and threatening
the President Buhari administration with fire and
brimstone”, the statement concluded.
