– The APC has chided Governor Wike for failing to keep his vow to sue the FG over the $43m recovered in Ikoyi
– The party say Wike is an alarmist whose single agenda since he assumed office as the governor of Rivers state is to destroy Amaechi by any means
– The APC alleged that Wike has put Rivers state account in red through looting and the borrowing of over N100 billion from banks, without investing it in any tangible projects
The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called for immediate resignation of Governor Nyesom Wike over alleged nuisance.
The party made the call in a statement signed by its State Chairman, Chief (Dr.) Davies Ibiamu Ikanya in which it berated Wike for failing to keep his vow to “sue the Federal Government if it fails to return the $43m found in a luxury apartment in Ikoyi Lagos to the Rivers State Government within one week”.
According to the statement, ‘’Wike had claimed that the money belonged to the Rivers State Government and was part of the funds allegedly looted by his immediate past predecessor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the current Minister of Transportation.
Rivers APC said “It is now over two weeks since Governor Wike issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to return the money to the Rivers State Government or be sued accordingly.
Governor Wike had claimed that he has records, documents and facts to prove that the contentious $43m was kept by Amaechi. Apart from Rt. Hon. Amaechi vehemently denying the accusation as one from the pit of hell; it is on record that Mr. Abayomi Oke, the suspended DG of the National Intelligence Agency, has claimed ownership of the money, thereby exonerating Amaechi.
“Wike’s failure to sue the Federal Government as he vowed to do is the height of his shameful theatrics and repulsive actions that have brought shame and public odium to Rivers State and her people. We, therefore, demand without equivocation, the immediate resignation of Wike as the Governor so as to save the good people of Rivers State further embarrassment” it said.
