Chibuike Amaechi who was the former governor of Rivers state and the current minister for transport has been accused by the Rivers State Government of embezzling a whopping N3trn while serving as governor as the state.

Amaechi was also said to have left office with the unenviable record of  ‘most abandoned projects in the history of the State’

The All Progressive party APC have however hit back at this saying that there is absolutely no way he could have wasted that much money in a mere 8 years.

Amaechi’s accuser, state commissioner for information, Dr. Tam George said that while Amaechi’s administration borrowed N4 billion agricultural loan from the Central Bank with no record of farmer-beneficiaries, Governor Wike’s N2 billion loan from the same source had recorded 35,000 beneficiaries that were small and medium scale entrepreneurs.

Mr Chris Finebone who is  the Rivers State APC publicity secretary said dismissing the allegation  “For once, you guys should ask the Commissioner what was used for those uncompleted projects he claimed was abandoned. It is important he cross-check his records so that he can overcome his little dream world of make-belief.”
