PDP Rivers state chapter has called on the president to fight a transparent fight against corruption, thereby calling for the probe of immediate past governor of the state, Rotimi Amaechi. The Deputy chairman of the party (Rivers Chapter) said that the governor engaged in corrupt practices while he served as governor.
This was made known to newsmen in Port Harcourt yesterday being August 11th.
“Since the President of Nigeria, President Buhari, has told the world that he is a man with zero tolerance for corruption, we, the people of Rivers, are asking that there should be no sacred cow. We are saying that corruption in Rivers State should be investigated and justice should be done. As we speak to you, we cannot trace the proceeds that emanated from all the government’s transactions that took place in Rivers State. Can you imagine that between December 1 and 8, 2014, with one address – 25 Trans-Amadi Road, Port Harcourt, over N21bn of Rivers funds were transferred? We are asking, where did these funds go?” he said
