Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Party, APC, has expressed satisfaction with the letter written to President Muhammadu Buhari by government functionaries under former governor Rotimi Amaechi, absolving the immediate past administration from allegations of corruption.
The party described the corruption allegation by Governor Nyesom Wike as spurious.
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.
In a release, yesterday from the office of the Senior Special
Adviser, SSA Media and Public Affairs to the State Chairman, APC Rivers State, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, the APC stated
that, “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 organization.”
A statement signed by the Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, noted that allegations against Amaechi,was sponsored by governor Wike and spread through the State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other amorphous groups such as The Integrity Group, were products of malice, with the intention of soiling the integrity of the former governor and his administration ‘’so as to poison President Buhari’s mind and discourage him from appointing Amaechi into his cabinet.’’
The party argued 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.
The APC said that governor Wike failed in his bid to tarnish the good image of the former governor. It expressed optimism that President Buhari cannot be deceived by the handiwork of the opposition seeking to prevent 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 Organization in mobilizing Nigerians to cast their ballots for the APC Presidential Candidate during the March 28 presidential polls.”
