FCT, Abuja - Contrary to claims that the former minister of transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, bought his law degree, a video clip showing his active participation during the academic programme has been obtained.
The former Rivers state governor was seen attending classes, moot and mock trials and writing exams at Baze University, Abuja.
Some of his colleagues, who said they were surprised at Amaechi's commitment to academic work despite his busy schedule, also attested to his punctuality in class.

At the end of the programme, the school's faculty of law honoured the former governor for his diligence and punctuality.
An official who presented Amaechi with the award said in the video:
“Thank you so much for being a model.”
Amaechi's track record of punctuality
Responding to the recognition, the former governor explained that his penchant for punctuality dates back to his days at the University of Port Harcourt where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree (Honours) in English Studies and Literature.
“There's a number of classes you have to attend before you can write exams at the University of Port Harcourt.”
He noted that since he was at Baze University to seek knowledge, he knew that he needed to dedicate time too.
Speaking further on his track record of punctuality, he cited an instance where he was told to stop coming to a ministry earlier than the minister-in-charge.
“There's a colleague of mine - a minister. She will fix an appointment and tell me to come by 10 but she won't be in the office until 11. I was always there before 10 and was waiting for her. I did it three times until they begged me and said: 'Don't come until she comes.'”
The former governor of Rivers state also hinted that he would go a step further by going to Law School to be called to bar.
