Olomu stated that the accusations against Amaechi is aimed at discrediting the anti-corruption fight of the President.
Two judges, Justice Okoro Inyang and Justice Sylvester Ngwuta alleged that Rotimi Amaechi offered them bribes to influence their ruling on some election cases.
Olomu said corrupt forces are trying to discredit the anti-corruption fight of the President.
He said ”If the former governor, Rotimi Amaechi,as claimed by Justice Okoro, had visited him in his residence and told him that the president of Nigeria and the APC sent him (Amaechi) to plead with the judge that they must win their election appeals in respect of Rivers State, Akwa Ibom State and Abia State at all costs, why didn’t he file a report before the National Judicial Council (NJC) or report same to the Chief Justice of the Federation?
“It is clear that the fold of corrupt force within and outside the Judiciary have decided and tutored the disgraced Justice on what to say and how to embark on the clear attacks on the anti-corruption drive of President Muhammadu Buhari. We call on Justice Okoro to focus on the charges against him and stop throwing muds in order to truncate prosecution and coming jail term.
‘We call on President Muhammadu Buhari not to be disturbed by the false allegation of Justice Okoro and his cohorts,but remained focus and resolute to ensure the anti-corruption drive of his administration remained on course. It is criminal that justice from the judiciary have become the property of the highest bidder. And those ordinary Nigerians unable to “Pay” end up in jail and their rights trampled upon.”
In a related development, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers state has called on the Minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi to resign following the allegations of corruption against him.
