Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressive Congress, APC, for supporting the former governor of River State, Chief Rotomi Chibuike Amaechi, in the claimed alleged inducement of judges to deliver election cases against the governors of Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Abia states.
The organisation in a statement made available to the media, signed by their spokesman, Emma Powerful, the alleged inducement of judges to thwart justice was a corruption of unimaginable magnitude.
Recall that one of the judges arrested recently over corruption by officials of DSS, accused former governor Amaechi of trying to lobby him to pervert justice and to upturn the elections of the governors of Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Abia states.
The organisation frowned at such atrocity and declared thus, “this is corruption in the highest order and the president is shielding him and others whom his is using to distract the people of old eastern region.
“The All Progressives Congress party is a group of corrupt clique who are bent to ruin the country, if not so, why the government still appointing the corrupt people while they are good and transparent people in Nigeria?,” the statement said.
It also accuses the former governor of being an errand boy to the Aso Rock and further claimed that it shared money to judges to deliver cases in favour of president Buhari and APC, and alleged that jailed Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the group may have been of APC’s under table dealings.
“He used the Rivers State funds to finance the campaign for APC party and government that brought hardship to the people of Nigeria against his brother Goodluck Ebele Jonathan in 2015 general election.
“The fight against corruption in Nigeria is a system where the government of the day uses it to torment the opposition group who say whatever evil the government and the APC party does and committed,” the statement points out.
