The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed the corruption allegations against immediate past Governor of the State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi, with a wave of the hand.

The party in a statement issued this morning in Port Harcourt by its State Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, said that the latest allegation by the wailing Care-taker Governor of Rivers State, Chief Nyesom Wike camp that Amaechi has foreign bank accounts lacks substance.

“These stories flooding the Internet and Social Media about former Governor Amaechi are mere fabrications intended to ridicule him and poison the mind of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is expected to make Amaechi a key member of his cabinet. For the avoidance of doubt, Amaechi has no account with a Bank in Minnesota, USA, as alleged by these devious rumour mongers. It is also not true that CNN’s Christiane Amanpour accused Amaechi of corruption, as being claimed by his detractors. Besides, at no time did Amaechi write to Bancorp or any bank in Switzerland, stating that he deposited any funds in error. These are wicked lies concocted by evil-minded persons desperate to pull down Amaechi but who are bound to fail,” Rivers APC said.

It expressed regret that “some saboteurs within the party have made themselves available for use by Chief Wike in tarnishing Amaechi’s hard-earned reputation just because of pecuniary benefits.”

“We wish to warn these saboteurs to stop playing Judas and return Wike’s money to him or be prepared to face the consequences with their new-found master whose wrongful occupation of the Rivers State Government House will soon be ended by the State Governorship Election Tribunal,” Rivers APC said.

It assured Amaechi of the party’s unflinching support, assuring him that he would be vindicated at the end of the day.
