We Will Not Stop Amaechi- Rivers Senator by NgeneUkwenu(f): 9:18am On Oct 05, 2015
THE lawmaker representing Rivers South-East senatorial district, Senator Olaka Nwogu, has said that senators, especially those from Rivers State, will not antagonise or victimise the immediate past governor of Rivers State, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, should he (Amaechi) appear before the Senate for ministerial screening.

There are speculations that the former governor’s name was among the 21 names sent to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of the screening expected to begin later this week.
It will be recalled that Amaechi, who is a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and the leader of the party in the state, had come under intense criticism by the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.

Recently, the former governor was criticised by the PDP for refusing to appear before a judicial commission of inquiry set up by Governor Nyesom Wike over the sale of some assets belonging to Rivers.
Amaechi alleged that the panel was set up to victimise him.

The three senators representing Rivers State are from the PDP; a party that had insisted that Amaechi should appear before the panel to defend himself.

Speaking in a telephone interview with our correspondent on Saturday, Nwogu explained that though the senators would ask the ministerial nominees questions where necessary, Amaechi would not be singled out for any form of victimisation.
According to the lawmaker, “If there are questions to be asked, we, as senators, will ask questions. But at the same time, we shall not be against anybody.

“We will not single out Amaechi for any treatment different from what others will go through. We will not go with any element of bias.”

He pointed out that a ministerial nominee would be approved by the Senate if senators believed that he/she would do a good job as a minister.

Nwogu, however, stated that the National Assembly would not hesitate to reject a nominee that would not be able to carry out the responsibility of a minister after being appointed.

He promised that the National Assembly would not disappoint Nigerians during the screening, adding that the senators will do their best for the country.

“If we think that you as a ministerial nominee will do a good job, we will support you. On the other hand, if we think that you will not do a good job, we will insist.

“But we will not embark on a witch-hunt against anybody. We will not antagonise anybody. We will do our best for the country,” Nwogu maintained.

Buhari's fight against corruption is FAKE, If renowned looters are made the ministers after waiting for 4 months .



Will Rotimi Amaechin return all the loots ?

Firefire:



We Nigerians are interesting people, we really have a long way to a corruption fee country.

- We celebrate some looters

- We ask for the head of others

- We sing praise of some, we castigate others.

When are we going to speak with ONE VOICE against the looters of our common wealth


How can a governor be richer than his state ?

How a government official can owns properties all over the world while 80% of Nigerians are living in abject poverty?

If Buari's fight against corruption is not FAKE, then let see who the incorruptible ministers would be.

Nigerians are watching...

On CNN's Amanpour Live Report it was reported that Amaechi has been stacking money in different foreign accounts. According to the statement, Amanpour’s show said "the sum of over 757 million U.S. dollars was stacked by Amaechi in a foreign U.S. Bancorp/Minnesota account."

The Integrity Group, a non-governmental organization, has sent a petition to Buhari as well as the Economic Financial Crimes Commission chairman to investigate Amaechi for the over N70 billion stolen from the Rivers State government.

Amaechi transferred from the Power Assets proceeds account of Access bank to the accounts of three private companies with a 25 Trans-Amadi Road, Port Harcourt address. Those companies are Advante Consulting and Management Company, Result Imports Experts Company, and Capital Ltd.

Yeye people everywhere.
As far as Amaechi is concerned, nobody from Rivers can corner him. Even without the power of APC, he is a man that fears no one, not to talk of people instigated by Wike who's no way near him.

amaechi may be corrupt but he did a good job for his state, amaechi may be corrupt but he also chased away the main head of corruption. And as a reward for this two things u would be forgiven for your sins and be appointed as a minister.
Bt wait o the people of rivers never complained about amaechi governance.

On what ground would they have stopped him before?

That he didn't support GEJ?

Or that he changed from PDP to APC?

Or that "he is corrupt" according to Saint Wike?

Where has common sense gone to amongst the youths?

Mumu! The only people crying are the same people that didn't vote for Buhari! Go to the streets, Town Halls, newsstand, markets and Churches, They will tell you buhari is a gift from God! However, if you mistakenly mention PDP/Jonathan or Madueke, yoou will be stoned to death. cheesy
