Wike to implement report on probe of Amaechi



RIVERS State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has vowed to implement the recommendations of the judicial commission of inquiry probing the sale of its valued assets by the immediate past administration of Governor Chibuike Amaechi.

The Justice George Omereji seven- man commission of inquiry which concluded its proceeding over the weekend, has warned Amaechi and some members of his administration who shunned the panel to be prepared to bear the consequences of their action.

Special adviser on media and publicity to the governor, Opunabo Inko-Tariah, told The Guardian that the state government is eagerly awaiting the recommendations of the Justice Omereji Commission, and will ensure its full implementation without fear or favour.

Inko-Tariah explained that the Commission was not set up to witch-hunt Amaechi contrary to his claim. Rather, he said the Commission which was legally constituted, was set up by the governor to determine the probity of certain financial transactions like the payment of $39.2 million for the Justice Adolphus
Karibi Whyte special hospital to a contractor that never executed the project as well as the sale of the state owned four gas turbine power stations under the administration of his predecessor.

“ The commission was set up to ascertain certain financial transactions under Amaechi. Rivers State funds were involved in these transactions and we assume some of the funds might have been embezzled and that is the reason for the commission.”

    When federal Government will institute enquiry into Unitary school why they were not paid for many months, I hope you will be comfortable?

    If Wike makes good on his promise, I foresee Rivers State in a state of chaos. I implore the governor not to throw caution to the wind.

    Wike does not understand or he is grandstanding.The tribunal would soon end these madness.

  • The Trib3sman

    Kudos to Governor Wike on his resolve to fix Rivers State and reclaim the glory of Rivers people something that Amaechi abused. Too abandoned projects for which billions of naira had been released and nothing to show. We stand behind Nyesom Wike ….100%!

    Nice one Gov. Nyesom wike. Continue to deliver and shame the rogue ex Gov. Amaechi.

  • Damiete Princewill

    Rivers people know who Gov. Amaechi is and his positive doggedness to move the state forward while in office and so all this premeditated evil plans to destroy his hard earned reputation/integrity wil all end up in d trash cos u (wike) is synonymous wit corruption. Rivers people know d long standing biterness between justice umereji and the former governor and so nothing good can come out of d court of an avowed enemy…wike declare ur assets publicly lets scrutinize it now and show d world how corrupt u are
