Alleged Forgery: Rivers APC Demands Wike’s Resignation


BY AMOS DUNIA, ABUJA – Following allegations that forged documents were used by Governor Nyesom Wike to indict the Minister of Transportation, Hon Rotimi Amaechi, the Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on the governor to as a matter of honour resign from office.

This is just as the APC called on the people of the State to unite in order to collectively liberate the State from Governor Wike and others that have hijacked and turned it into Rivers State of blood.

The Executive Director of the Integrity Group, a non-governmental organisation based in Rivers, Mr. Livingstone Wechie, had last week declared that all the documents his group used to petition the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) in a failed bid to stop the screening and confirmation of Rotimi Amaechi by the Senate as a Minister were fabricated and forged by the Rivers State Government under the supervision of Governor Wike.

Wechie explained that his group’s letter dated July 29, 2015 and addressed to the President of the Senate were later discovered by his organisation to be fake.

Accordingly, the Rivers APC in a statement by its Chairman, Chief Davies Ibiamu Ikanya said the damning revelation by Mr. Wechie and the Integrity Group has vindicated the Party’s earlier position that Governor Wike is a “fraud and diabolical” that was foisted on Rivers State by former President Goodluck Jonathan.

According to Ikanya; “Governor Wike in his desperation to ridicule Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi, his benefactor, mentor and predecessor in office with forged documents carried on without rules and checks. He is bereft of ideas and has no business in the Rivers State Government House.

“Wike’s administration has only succeeded in bringing shame, odium and embarrassment to Rivers State and her people. He has for dubious reasons refused to pay our civil servants and pensioners their salaries and entitlements; he has turned our State to Rivers of blood where human sanctity no longer has any meaning.”

He further said; “Governor Wike has destroyed our economic base and made it impossible for foreign investors to invest in the State. Shamelessly, he made the world to believe that he can run a State like Rivers State like Chiefdom with only one paged budgetary provision.

“He has turned our State from the garden city it used to be to Rivers of dustbin. Our schools are now haven for criminals because he decides to close all the modern schools constructed by the golden administration of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi. Enough of this rascality.

“If he has any shame, he should save us this agony and formally resign without any further delay, failing which the State House of Assembly should commence impeachment proceedings against him if it is not a rubber stamp as widely believed,” the Rivers APC stressed.
