Outgoing Rivers state Governor, Rotimi Amaechi has revealed that majority of those who worked with him betrayed him.
The governor who disclosed this in Abuja at the Silver Bird galleria where he showcased a documentary on his years as the Rivers governor said that his achievements speak volume, adding that he did all he did in the state were not for self-glorification but to bequeath a legacy for successive administrations in the state to sustain.
While showcasing many of his achievements spanning all sectors, he wondered why the federal government was desperate about painting his administration in bad light even when he spent N105 billion doing federal roads.
He stated that he was not afraid to face the barrage of forces but said because he kept his books well, he had the courage to sustain the struggle, expressing joy that history will vindicate him in the end.
In the documentary which featured his giant strides in security, works, agriculture, works, education, transportation, health and social development, Amaechi’s administration was projected as not only as having positively transformed the state, but provided opportunities for the indigent to climb to the apex of their potentialities.
In particular, Senator Magnus Abbe, explained how Amaechi pioneered the amnesty programmes through which unparallel insecurity in the state was drastically reduced.
The senator explained that the federal government borrowed the idea of amnesty from his administration and provided evidence to justify the claim.
