PDP Rivers state chapter has petitioned EFCC over claims that the immediate past governor of the state, Rotimi Amaechi engaged in corrupt practices while he served as governor. The deputy chairman of the party who made this known to newsmen in Port Harcourt yesterday August 11th, called on President Buhari to be fair in his fight against corruption and ensure that Amaechi is investigated by EFCC.
He said the EFCC was petitioned over alleged corrupt practices the former governor's administration was involved in between December 1-8th 2014.
"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 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
