There seems to be no end to the accusations and counter-accusations of fraud, between fmr.Gov. Rotimi Amaechi and his estranged political associate and Gov. of Rivers state-NyesomWike.

The former Gov. challenged Gov. Wike to present the statement of Rivers state account to the people, so they will see how much he left in the coffers.

Also, Amaechi, in response to critics over his decision not to honour the invitation of the commission of inquiry, said the body was biased.

Adding that its main objective was to find him guilty.

He also said ‘‘Wike should explain to Rivers people what happened to the funds Amaechi left, the N30 billion loans he took under 30 days and other funds that has accrued to Rivers State since he became governor. “

According to Guardian Newspapers, Amaechi also said “We repeat that N7.5 billion cash were left behind as balances in the State Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) account with Skye Bank, FAAC account with Zenith Bank, balances with Access Bank and funds in the state reserve fund account in First Bank. This is besides other balances in the state Government House account with Zenith Bank and other government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) accounts, like the Bureau for Public Procurement (BPP).”

“Amaechi left N939 million in the Commercial Agric Credit Scheme Account in Zenith Bank. By the time you pull all these balances together, we are looking at readily available cash in the region of eight to ten billion naira left for the Wike administration. We have mentioned banks, account names and funds left in the accounts. These are facts that cannot be distorted by Wike,” he said.
