Former Rivers State Governor and Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has denied allegations of misappropriating N82 million in hosting Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka and dared his successor as governor, Barr. Nyesom Wike to go to court.
Amaechi in a statement accused Governor Wike of running out of ideas on account of the electoral setbacks suffered by him and his associates in the state.
In the statement issued by his Media Office, Amaechi accused the Wike administration of spreading lies, criminalising legitimate transactions of government and doing everything to smear Amaechi.
tement warned Wike against dragging the names of respected Nigerians who have made the country proud globally and who are internationally known to be honest and forthright, such as Prof Soyinka into his unbridled, unashamed and ill-advised attack of his former boss and benefactor.
It added that since Wike is blind to his responsibilities as Governor of Rivers State and has insisted on attacking the person and clean reputation of Amaechi as his one and only project, then let him go to court to prove his allegations and stop the nefarious insinuations against Amaechi.
