Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi is currently in the eye of the storm over allegations of corruption leveled against him by two Supreme Court judges.

According to the judges, Amaechi tried to bribe them in order to tamper with election tribunal results.

Below is a list of five people who have accused Amaechi of corruption:

  1. Justice Inyang Okoro - Justice Okoro accused Amaechi of attempting to bribe him over the election petition in Akwa Ibom state in order to aid All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Umana Umana.

  2. Justice Sylvester Ngwuta - Justice Ngwuta has accused Amaechi of attempting to use him to win governorship election cases involving Ekiti, Rivers and Ebonyi states.

  3. Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike – Wike is Amaechi’s successor and has frequently accused him of corruption.

  4. Paul Cahalan of the UK Daily Mail – According to Cahalan, Amaechi has been nicknamed “ATM” because of “his ability to produce vast sums of money at short notice.” He adds: “Separately, Amaechi is accused of diverting £140million of state funds into Buhari’s presidential campaign, with reports he paid for media, consultants and private jets.”

  5. Former Sokoto State Governor, Attahiru Dalhatu Bafarawa: Bafarawa said that Amaechi took corruption into the All Progressives Congress (APC). “APC government says it is fighting corruption, but it is the mother of corruption; it has been the mother of corruption since the day it opened its gates to those five governors from the new PDP,” he said.
