The statement reads in parts: “The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has continued to twist, falsify and forge fresh documents that he intends to use against the immediate past governor of the state and now Minister of Transportation Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.

"In the past couple of days, Wike has been telling anyone who cares to listen, bragging that he will certainly get a conviction, a judgement against Amaechi in the law courts on spurious charges of corruption using his forged documents because he (Wike) is in control of the judiciary at the state and national level.

“Nigerians would recall that only a few days back, Livingstone Wechie, the young man Wike used to accuse Amaechi of corruption and write false and frivolous petitions to the National Assembly and the EFCC etc, confessed in a live television programme and in a statement he also circulated to the media, that all the documents he used to wrongfully portray Amaechi as corrupt when he governed Rivers State, were phony, forged documents given to him by Wike’s Rivers State Government House.

“Wechie also admitted, like we have always said, that the forged documents were used as the template and basis for the Justice Omereji-led Judicial Commission of Inquiry, a panel Wike set up early in his administration to malign, vilify and persecute Amaechi.

“Sadly, this is the kind of administration that presides over the affairs of Rivers people; an administration that embarks on wholesale forgery and distortion of government documents and then retails it out to his minions, the media and now the judiciary in a shameful and futile bid to defame and destroy Amaechi.

“Wike shamelessly said that the money was part of what was stolen from Rivers State – and warehoused in the Ikoyi house by his predecessor and current Minister for Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.

Not done with his concocted tales, Wike went further to threaten the President Muhammadu Buhari administration with fire and brimstone if the money is not returned to him (Wike).

"He gave the Federal Government a seven-day ultimatum to return the money; otherwise, he would institute the mother of all legal actions against the Buhari government to recover the money,” the former governor further recalled."

Meanwhile, Rivers state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused Governor Nyesom Wike for saying that President Muhammadu Buhari’s government has not done much for Rivers state and the Niger Delta Region.

Reports state that it was made known through a statement signed by Ibiamu Ikanya, the state party chairman saying that Former President Goodluck Jonathan who is a son did not even thought about the region during his six years as the President of Nigeria.
