Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has expressed confidence that President Muhammadu Buhari will support his probe of the alleged corrupt practices of former Governor, Rotimi Amaechi.
Wike declared this on Friday, June 19, 2015, after receiving the final report of his administration’s Transition Committee.
This was disclosed via a statement released by the governor’s aide, Simeon Nwakaudu.
It reads in part:
“I am confident that President Muhammadu Buhari will support my administration in the quest to tackle the massive corruption that characterised the Amaechi administration.”
“We are aware that the immediate past administration and her officials will resort to blackmail and propaganda for the purpose of diverting attention from their corruption practices. We shall remain focused on the task of getting back Rivers State resources and assets.”
Wike has accused the Amaechi administration of emptying the state treasury and stripping the State Government House bare of valuables.
