TENSION!!! Minister Of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, Has A Very Serious Case To Answer – DETAILS

The Rivers State Government, has said that the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has a case to answer, over the alleged sale of gas turbine power stations, belonging to the State Government.

The Commissioner for Information in the State, Emma Okah, revealed in a statement, that Amaechi, who was the Governor of the State at the time, sold off the power stations to Sahara Energy, owned by a Billionaire Businessman from the State, Tonye Cole, towards the end of his administration.

Okah added that, the then administration allegedly used the proceeds of N112 billion from the sale, to fund the political activities of the All Progressives Congress, APC, which Amaechi is its Leader in the State.

“The reason for Tonye Dele Cole, is now better explained. There is need to cover the skeletons in the cupboard”, Okah said in the statement.

Mr. Okah insisted that the alleged diversion of the funds, was the reason the Amaechi administration “left many projects uncompleted, and owed salaries and pensions to workers, before he left office in 2015.”

Apart from the power assets, the Commissioner revealed that Sahara Energy also bought the Olympia Hotel, and other high-value State assets, under suspicious circumstances from the administration.

Amaechi’s successor, Governor Nyesom Wike, had set up a Judicial Commission of Inquiry, which indicted Amaechi on the sale of the assets.

“The Justice Omereji Commission of Inquiry, investigated the spurious sales and indicted the Minister of Transport, and instead of refunding the money, the Minister rushed to court to set aside the findings of the Commission. He lost at the High Court, and at the Court of Appeal. His appeal to the Supreme Court has been abandoned, because for over a year, he has failed to file a brief of argument”, Okah said.

The Commissioner also commented on the running battle between the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and the Rivers State Government.

He said that it was “very funny” that Amaechi who is “backing” the EFCC against the State Government today, was the same person who fought against “interference” by the Commission in the affairs of the State, when he (Amaechi) was the Governor.

Okah disclosed: “For the avoidance of doubts, Rivers State Government is not against the fight against corruption. Our case is that there are two perpetual court injunctions restraining the Commission from investigating the finances of Rivers State Government, and until those injunctions are vacated by a Superior Court, the Commission is duty bound in law to respect it, irrespective of how worried the former Governor may feel today.

“The Rivers State Government assures the Transport Minister, that the law has not changed, and the facts remain the same; and so, his collusion with the Commission to harass the Rivers State Government and her officials, will not work.”
