We’ve Overwhelming Evidence of Corruption Against Amaechi – Wike

Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, has insisted that the immediate past Governor of the state now Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, bled the state dry during his tenure.
Wike, who said there was an overwhelming evidence of corruption against Amaechi, declared that the former Governor even admitted it publicly.
Wike, who addressed the 106th Quarterly Meeting of the Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers in Port Harcourt, Monday, added that Amaechi admitted paying $39m for a non-existent Justice Karibi Whyte Mega Specialist Hospital.
He added that the former Governor confessed publicly that he sold the state’s gas turbines, adding that the immediate past administration diverted the funds.
According to Wike, “All the documents that proved Amaechi’s corrupt acts are authentic. We never forged documents. The former Governor himself admitted that he paid out $39m to Clinotech, without a single block laid anywhere. Is that a document he claimed was forged? Where is the hospital?
“He has agreed in different interviews that he sold the state gas turbines for $309m. Convert $309m to naira and you will understand the level of fraud. Amaechi left only $204,000 in the state account.
“The bank statements of the pattern of withdrawals from that account are there for all to see. Can that be forged? The dates and amounts withdrawn are clearly written,” he said.
The Governor warned that any hotel that opens its facility for electoral fraud and malpractice would lose its operational certificate of occupancy.
