The Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers State has said it is not surprised by the allegations of corruption against the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi by two justices of the Supreme Court.
Justice Okoro Inyang and Justice Sylvester Ngwuta both of the Supreme Court had fingered Amaechi in an alleged bribery and corruption scandal.
The State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Samuel Wanosike said its claims that Amaechi misappropriated funds while he was governor has been justified.
Wanosike also called on Amaechi to immediately resign his position for proper investigations to take place.
“We of the PDP in Rivers state have been vindicated. We are not surprised because we knew Amaechi was stingingly corrupt. Under his watch over three points, something close to trillion was misused.
“President Mohammadu Buhari now the moral burden to let Nigerians know if he is truly fighting corruption.
“If the President knows he’s not shielding corrupt officials especially those who have embezzled fund meant for Rivers state.
“We as a party are asking Amaechi to resign so that he can be properly investigated. We are asking President Mohammadu Buhari to please do the needful for Nigerians,” Wanosike said.
