$43m: Amaechi slams Wike, denies ownership of the recovered money and apartment

Minister of Transport and former Rivers state governor, Rotimi Amaechi, has released a statement blasting his successor, Nyesom Wike, who claims the $43 million found by EFCC operatives in an apartment in Ikoyi last week, belongs to Amaechi.

In the statement released, Amaechi denied the claim and alleged that Wike's sole aim since assuming office is to search for new ways to defame his person. Read Amaechi's statement below.
“Wike has stolen Rivers State dry. Wike and his gang have frittered billions and billions of Naira of Rivers people money away. Rivers State is perpetually in crisis, the state in a mess as Wike has made a total mess of governance in the State. That child who sits there as governor is confused, he doesn’t know what to do. Wike’s only solution is to attack Amaechi.”
“Since he became governor, Wike sleeps and wakes up everyday, with a sole, one-point agenda to attack and denigrate Rotimi Amaechi, no matter how ridiculous and silly he sounds. Everyday in Rivers State, there is one frivolous, false story of what Amaechi did or didn’t do. Same pattern, the same blatant lies with no proof, same old concocted stories of corruption allegations against Amaechi told with different flavours. At this rate, if Wike is unable to perform his spousal duties, he will blame it on Amaechi. Yes, that’s how despicably low he can go in his consuming fixation to throw mud at Amaechi.”

“This latest outburst by Wike is typical of him. We are aware that Wike first tried to float the fake news of Amaechi’s ownership of the recovered $43million and the Ikoyi house in the social media using his minions and lackeys, spending huge sums of Rivers money on the failed project. His minions and lackeys were calling journalists, bloggers and media organizations to run the fake story with promises of almost irresistible mouth-watering compensation for using the fake story. When that failed and the story didn’t gain traction that was when Wike decided to hurriedly hold the press conference Friday night, to rant and spew his outright lies, yet again without providing any proof of Amaechi’s ownership of both the property and the money.”

“For clarity and emphasis, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi is not the owner of the $43million and the Ikoyi apartment in which the money was recovered from. Amaechi has no business, link or connection to the money or property. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi does not know who owns the money or Ikoyi apartment.”

“Wike’s malicious allegation of corruption against Amaechi in the sale of the Gas Turbines is not new. This false claim has been punctured repeatedly with facts and evidence of the transfer payments for the power plants into Rivers State government accounts by Sahara Energy. The records of how the funds were spent and what it was spent on are in the records of the State government. Amaechi has absolutely no business or any interest whatsoever in Sahara Energy. The company was already a thriving business concern before Amaechi’s emergence as governor of Rivers State in 2007.

“We urge all right-thinking members of the public to completely disregard all the false, politically motivated no-proof claims by Nyesom Wike and his minions as it concerns Amaechi and the $43million and Ikoyi property. The false accusations by Wike is purely diversionary, a political smear campaign against Amaechi by Wike, while he steals Rivers State blind. The fake claims is a figment of the imagination of Nyesom Wike, an ignoble fellow who’s so reckless, irresponsible, and disgraceful, and has debased the high office he holds in trust for the people. Wike is a rabble-rouser and should not be taken seriously. He has made several false claims like this in the recent past and never went the whole length to prove it because he had no proof. Many would recall how Wike was screaming all over national television stations just before the Rivers State legislative Rerun elections that he had an explosive video, containing earth-shaking revelations and he would show the video on national TV. Till date, no video, just talk talk and talk, telling more and more lies.”

“Yet again, we challenge Wike to charge Amaechi to court if he has any shred of evidence that the money belongs to Rivers State and was kept in the Ikoyi apartment by Amaechi. But like his numerous frivolous accusations in the past, we know he won’t go to court. He has nothing to substantiate his blatant lies. This Wike’s recent tale like his previous ones is a big sham, a disgraceful political drama, and a campaign of calumny to defame and destroy the sterling reputation of Rotimi Amaechi. This is now Wike’s sole life ambition.”

“Finally, we want Nigerians to note that Wike’s reckless, irresponsible and fictitious tirade against the President Buhari administration at his media briefing of Friday is a declaration of war against the Federal Government. This has been his regular past time in recent times, making false allegations against the Federal government and threatening the President Buhari administration with fire and brimstone”, the statement concluded.

I'm certainly certain, that you cannot kill who was already dead, and that you cannot smear what's already dirty.
Moreover, no man has ever judged himself evil, and no man can ever condemn himself

Shameless men

This people are playjng politics with Nigerians. Its not difficult to know the owner of the apartment. Other tenants should be able to tell them where they pay rents and from there, they fish out the landlord or apartment owner. They should stop fooling themselves

Who then owns the money?


... Merited happiness

Sincerely, I am beginning to doubt my initial conclusion.
1. If the owner of d house is not known, let it be confiscated
2. If the occupant of the apartment cannot be ascertain, I am sure the whistleblower can provide an insight on the occupant of the place, even security or workers in the building can provide all info needed to unravel the misery behind the ownership.
3. EFCC should make reasonable and convincing pronouncements on this matter to address the ownership issue.

4.Confiscating recovered loots shouldn't be the end #WENEEDTOKNOW

5.This will inadvertently bring culprit to public ridicule

I can bet it that wike head finished the money in state Treasury, if not why putting blame on his predecessor. Same thing Buahri's govt was doing, putting Blake until he stopped recently. Woke won't achieve much because he's out for vendetta that's not warranted of at the first place. You guys from his status should open yours eyes, wike head wiked u people.

So this is what our lives is abt now, hmm, these men bickering all over the place, feeding fat on our resources for doing absolutely nothing but lining their pockets. This is so painful. That kind of moni found is found in an apartment in the heart of town nd no one owns it? ?!! And some persons are making a cheap comedy show of trading blame. Well, since even Efcc can't seem to be able to fish out the owner. May God help Nigerians dig out d culprit.
