The comments were made via statement released on Thursday, July 30, 2015, by Rivers APC Publicity Secretary, Chris Finebone.

Finebone alleged Wike’s men had reached out to some people within and outside of the state “to initiate, formulate and contrive a false damaging report bordering on alleged corruption by Amaechi and circulate same to individuals and institutions in Nigeria and abroad to damage the incorruptible character and rising profile of Amaechi to blackmail and put pressure on President Muhammadu Buhari not to appoint the former governor into his government”.

“The international community and especially the Nigerian public know that Amaechi is one of the most forthright, transparent and honest leaders in the country today,” the statement added.
