The governor of Rivers State Nyesom Wike has spoken his mind concerning the recent looters’ list released by the Nigerian Government, which excluded the former governor of Rivers State and the Present Minister of Transportation Rotimi Ameachi, who he claimed stole N90 Billion from the state.
He said this when he received a Civil Society Organisations of Rivers State on Thursday at the Government House Port Harcourt.
He stated that publishing names of people the federal government considered as looters was an unfortunate act of irresponsibility by the Federal Government.
According to him, the act of irresponsibility was worsened by the fact that the All Progressives Congress, APC, leaders standing trial were excluded by the Federal Government.
Wike said, “This is an irresponsible Federal Government that has no respect for the rule of law. They have become the judge, the prosecutor in cases before courts.
“All they want to do is tie the hands of judges to ensure all those standing trial are convicted at all costs.”
He however decried the fact that the looters’ list of the federal govt. didn’t include the “name of Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi who was indicted by the court-approved Judicial Commission of Inquiry for embezzling over N90billion state funds.”
