RVSG Vs Amaechi: Supreme Court Says Amaechi Is Not On Trial’ by Watecblaze: 10:36pm On May 27
The supreme court of Nigeria on Friday, May 27, 2022, has dismissed an appeal by Rotimi Amaechi, former minister of transportation, seeking to stop his probe instituted by the Rivers state Governor Nysom Wike.

The Apex Court held that the Judicial Commission of Inquiry was a mere investigative body, that neither Rotimi Amaechi nor anybody was on trial before the panel set up by the Rivers State Government

Governor Wike had set up a seven-man panel to probe Amaechi over alleged withdrawal of N96 billion from the state’s treasury during his tenure as governor.

The listed valuable assets are Omoku Gas Turbine, Afam Gas Turbine, Trans Amadi Gas Turbine, Eleme Gas Turbine, Olympia Hotel, and the contract award for the execution of Mono Rail Project.

Amaechi who is a leading presidential aspirant under the platform of All Progressives Congress(APC), had approached the apex court to prohibit Wike from investigating his eight-year tenure as the executive governor of the state.

The former governor represented by Lateef Fagbemi, Amaechi predicated his opposition to the probe on the ground that it was aimed at witch-hunting him, embarrassing him, humiliating him and to as well disgrace him in view of his political differences with his successor.

However, delivering judgment on Friday, a seven-member apex court panel dismissed the appeal on the ground that the ground that the probe does not amount to prosecution court that the “panel is not competent to indict Amaechi”.

Adamu Jauro who read the lead judgment in the Amaechi’s suit said: “The appeal fails as it lacks merit.”

The court also asked the former minister to pay the respondents N1 million.

Yeye...

Why was he asked to pay #1Million

The panel cannot indict him..YES...but can ask him questions...

He should go back and answer those questions...from there, his response can be used as evidence to prosecute him at the court for wrong doings...if substantiated.

That's the idea...go and tell them what you know about what they are asking you..
.simple..

It's just hard to trust our systems these days. There may be other sentiments at play here.

A good start would be the populace actually voting in a competent leader

Some people's "incoming " in the mud.


When it comes to choosing leaders, Nigeria seemingly have a bad "taste". Just like a young naive girl that loves the bad guy.

This is a direct statement that Amechi has no case to answer.
It will be this way:
Panel of enquiry: Amechi how did u use the money?
Amechi: I used it to take care of rivers people.
Panel of enquiry: can u mention how and when?
Amechi: the records are there.

At d end of the day Wike will pay them their sitting allowance and the cash out continues and Amechi free like a bird.

Trust Amechi to take their enquiry very lightly.

Different lawyers with different interpretations to this same ruling. The judges should be interpreting their judgement too and not these different interpretations that will leave us the readers more confused at the end.

A young child who says when he grows, he's intention would be to kill and eat the head of all pigeons, the same head of piegons, will not allow such a child to live to fulfil he's intention.

Wike now feels he has balls to sit to probe Amechi, the man who made you what you are today, had it not been Amechi who's Wike? "There never can be a begining without an end" let's wait and see, am not in support of corruption or embazzelment of state funds by politicians but where's there's no history there won't be an event, Wike wants to make, history but history itself is Karma is a respecter of no person, old or young but Time, Wike should go and read history Nnamandi Azikwe and Chuba Okadigbo to those who understand how table turns and how life works I live my little observation to you as my jurist.

Going by the financial war-chess on display by him during the 2015 elections to support PMB

Do you Nigerians need a soothsayer to tell you that he’s guilty?

Nigeria can never succeed if her citizens don’t succeed in rising up against politics of sentiments, tribal E-war and across religious lines
