Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike believes that the immediate past Rivers Governor Rotimi Ameachi’s government is the most corrupt in the history of Nigeria and has asked President Muhammad Buhari not to appoint him as minister if he wants his fight against corruption to be looked upon with credibility
”If Buhari is sincere in his fight against corruption, let him probe the Amaechi’s government and he will discover that there cannot be a government official that is more corrupt than Amaechi,” he said. ”From the genesis to revelation of his government, Amaechi’s fiscal recklessness and dictatorial policies and approaches are responsible for the financial woes of the state that should ordinarily be buoyant. A man like Amaechi must not be allowed to flaunt the fruits of his crime with impunity. He has to account for the monthly allocations he received in 8 years and the IGRs for the same period. He spirited so much out of the system with little or nothing to show for it. The appointment of Amaechi by Buhari will be an endorsement of corruption by Buhari.” the statement read in part , signed by Mr. Wike’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Opunabo Inko-Tariah, on Sunday July 26.
