Ikoyi $43m: Rivers State Govt claims ownership. Gives FG 7days ultimatum to return the funds they claim was diverted by Amaechi

Read the press statement below...
Rivers State Governor has given the Federal Government an ultimatum of 7 days to return the $43million dollars found in a luxury apartment in Ikoyi to the Rivers State Government, failure which the State Government will take legal measures to ensure that it gets back her stolen resources, declaring that the $43million dollars found in the luxury apartment in Ikoyi belongs to the Rivers State Government.
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike addressing journalists on Friday night at the Government House; Port Harcourt on funds discovered at an Ikoyi apartment
Governor Wike said that investigations by the Rivers State Government revealed that the money was proceed from the sale of gas turbines by the immediate past Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi. Addressing journalists at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Friday night, Governor Wike said:

"The money in question belongs to the former Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi. We want to confirm that the houses in Ikoyi also belong to Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi. "If you recollect in 2015, we said that gas turbines built by Former Governor Peter Odili were sold to Sahara Energy, business partners of Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi at $319million. "That money was used to sponsor the All Progressives Congress for the 2015 general elections. From the date of sale of the gas turbines to May 29, 2015, the money depleted from $319million to $204,000 . What was stashed at the Ikoyi residence was part of that fund". He said : "We have facts to prove that the said money belongs to the Rivers State Government. The Federal Government must return our money".
Governor Wike said all the stories being peddled about the money belonging to the National Intelligence Agency are false and mere face saving measures by the embattled APC Federal Government. He said: "As I speak to you, the Federal Government is so embarrassed that this has happened. All the stories that the money belongs to the NIA are fake".
Governor Wike challenged the Federal Government to set up a panel of Inquiry, which will sit publicly to investigate the money, if it doubted the claim of the Rivers State Government. He stated that the Rivers State Government needs the money to complete an array of projects, insisting that on no account would this criminal activity be swept under the carpet. The governor said as long as the Federal Government continues to disturb the progress of Rivers State, so long will God throw the Federal Government into confusion. "We are giving them seven days to return our money. Otherwise, we would take legal action to recover our money. $43million will help us complete several projects. We need that money for projects", he said.

Mr Governor please pay your students. The UK government is compiling and will soon publish the names of organisations and governments that have abandoned their students. That is going to dent the image of those in charge internationally.

But if the money actually belonged to NIA why is it not in their bank account? Why is it in a flat and locked away? Why hasnt it be declared missing from the Federal government account? So many whys I don't know again o.

UJE said...

What rubbish! So wike is ready to paint ameachi black as long as that will get the money diverted to rivers, oh please. This case should be investigated and due process followed. However, if it is proven that the sum in question is not linked to amaechi, wike must pay for slander or attempted larceny. When will our leaders become sane for crying out loud. How can we grow and develope as a nation when you all have unnecessary and uncontrolled want for money. Unquenchable greed!...be human and stop hiding under false potentials. Stop bullying and cheating your subjects only to disgracefully satisfy your needs. We have seen the deceit, where is the honesty and goodwill. It is a shame that I can but count our leaders of virtue, a number so insignificant that one will but wonder, why and how are they still leaders.

PDP trying to divert the attention from themselves, senseless Nigerians failing for it. Keep supporting those thieves. It won't be long before they fund their bargaining tool- Niger Delta avenger to begin their vandalisation. They should keep destroying their land n poisoning their foolish followers. Evidence as to the ownership of the money has been colluded n n it all soon be released to the public. FFK n co n keep ranting, I believe God has decided to remember Nigeria, our future is gradually been liberated.D devil is fighting its last fight n a lot of gullible Nigerians can't see d bigger picture.

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssssssssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeee release the Money to Wike

Anonymous said...

Wike should stop the noise. The Federal High Court has given an order for any claimant to appear before it within 14 days to properly lay claim to the monies or it will be forfeited to the Federal Government. Rivers State should simply file the necessary papers through their AG instead of engaging in attention-seeking press conferences. The court has adjourned to May 5. We go see who go claim the money.

Now that the money has been traced to Ameachi, NIA is coming forward for ownership. Dis matter don finish . some people are untouchable in ApC.imagine if it was GEJ's name that was mentioned, hell go don loose himself,even when dey had already started insulting the man already.

Those of us that advocated change and voted APC into power are becoming the more disappointed and embarrassed. APC got power and didn't know what to do with it. Its quite unfortunate and disheartening. To think of it that this kind of messed up government is what PMB to more than six whooping months to put together is a putrifying shame. So this same indicted Rotimi Amaechi was one of the technocrats that Buhari discovered to constitute his government! This is such a woe.

APC is so confused, they don't know what else to do.... By the way, is Buhari still in Aso Rock, or where is he right now? May be he should have just passed on in London for someone who knows what to do to take over.

The Truth Hurts said...

This is another criminal claiming ownership of the stolen money. The money of RS should be in RS account, Not in a luxury building at ikoyi. So what if EFCC didn't recover the money? so your government won't know/investigate where they've been hiding the money. And that idiot typing "return our money",did FG come to your state and steal the money? NO. So please shut your damn mouth and reason for once in your life. Even if FG release the money to your govnr,you won't still benefit anything from it. It's gonna be in the hands of another criminal. Nigerians OPEN YOUR EYES. God has forsaken this country long time ago, And no amount of religions can change that. Even your our so called pastors and alfas can't change that coz they are only fighting to enrich their own pocket and private jets "all in the name of GOD SERVICE(s)".

Everything is wrong with nigeria,and nothing will ever change unless we implement a strict law concerning corruption.
CORRUPTION should be an offence punishable be DEATH. BUT NIGERIANS DON'T KNOW WHAT IS GOOD FOR THEM.
Call it sharia law or call us uncivilized citizens,that's your problem,all i know is that the solution for corruption is very clear for us to see. But most of us are too blind to see it.
