There seems no let in the offensive of Rivers State Government against former Governor of the state, Mr. Chibuike Amaechi, even with the assurance of a four-year term well in its kitty.

The government is demanding that Amaech, who is now the Minister or Transport in the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, give account of how he utilised the over N3trillion that allegedly accrued to the state during his tenure.

Conveying the government’s position, a day after Amaechi’s successor, Governor Nyesom Wike had his mandate confirmed by the Supreme Court, the state Commissioner for Information, Dr Tam George told reporters in Port Harcourt that the state had been hard-hit by the ex-governor’s “catastrophic  legacy.”


Wike and Amaechi

Vowing that the government would surely recover its resources through all available legitimate means, he said: “Amaechi left the most abandoned projects in the history of Rivers State since 1997. Thousands of workers were without their salaries for four months and thousands of teachers were not paid for nearly 12 months. We have so many abandoned projects which huge sums have been paid but projects are yet to be completed.  We have the Mono-rail project that gulped over N60bn and it was abandoned. We have the Woji road project awarded at N3bn. There was a variation of the project to the upward of N14bn but it was abandoned. We inherited the project and completed it. There are so many of the abandoned projects. We have the Karibi George 250 bed project where huge sums of money were paid but no single block was laid at the site.”
