Rotimi Amaechi… Dragged to court by his State Government.

The former Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the gubernatorial candidate of the APC, Tonye Cole and Sahara Energy are to be docked in court soon over the sale of State assets.

Governor Nyesom Wike… Directs Justice Commissioner to swing into action.

The action which is at the instance of the Rivers State Government is intended at getting to the root of the purported disappearance of $50 million belonging to it.

Governor Wike who revealed that Government had instituted the matter in a properly constituted court directed the newly sworn in Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice to swing into immediate action.

Ordering the Justice Commissioner to commence diligent prosecution of the illegal financial dealings of the former Rivers State governor, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, Mr. Tonye Cole, Sahara Energy, Wike remarked:

“Attorney General, you’re at a critical period where people want to know what the State is going to do with the Judiciary Panel of Inquiry after the Supreme Court judgement on it.

“Luckily, you came at the right time when we have preferred criminal charges against the former governor (Amaechi), Sahara Energy, Tonye Cole and the rest of them.”

He noted that there is need for Rivers people and the rest of the world to know what actually happened to the $50 million that disappeared from the state’s account without any proof of where the funds were deployed.

“So, you are coming at the right time to take over the matter and to make sure it is prosecuted diligently. I don’t want to hear excuses.

Amaechi, Wike… When will the squabble between two former allies end?

“Let the people see what happened to our money. The world will see how $50 million from our account was moved to a company without nothing to show whether there was a business.”

Governor Wike who earlier performed the swearing in ceremony of three commissioners commended them for showing capacity, loyalty and commitment in previous assignments.

The Governor explained that he will be careful in constituting a new cabinet.

According to him, at the twilight of his administration, only people with undivided loyalty would be needed to ensure a good ending.

“I want to commend three of you. You have shown commitment, you have shown hard work, you have shown loyalty. And for me, that is the only way to pay back
people who have shown in spite of all odds, they are still there with you.”
