PRESS RELEASE

Ghost school contracts accusation: A diversion from looming EFCC investigation – APC
By Nwaorgu Faustinus


The Rivers State Chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, has sadly noted that the Rivers State Government and the PDP in Rivers State have, once again, resorted to their old choreograph of indulging in wild and baseless accusations as a means of diverting attention whenever the noose is tightening on the inglorious regime of Gov. Nyesom Wike who climbed on the blood of innocent citizens to power as governor.




The APC in a statement signed by its Spokesman, Senibo Chris Finebone said, “The recent reported invitation to certain companies and persons by the Rivers State Secondary School Board on alleged monies collected for renovation of secondary schools in Rivers State by the last administration under Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi is nothing more than the old tired refrain by the Wike administration and the PDP to divert attention from the widely reported decision by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to probe an obvious humongous fraud surrounding the unlawful withdrawal of N11 billion from the coffers of the Rivers State Government by Gov. Nyesom Wike through the Government House Director of Finance and Administration [DFA], one Mr. Kingsley Fubara between October 2015 and February 2016.”



The APC stressed that “it is possible that Mr. Kingsley Fubara is a fake name used by the Governor to open an account in order to siphon Rivers money away. We very well remember his antecedents especially concerning his past infractions with the EFCC.”



The statement reads: “It must be stated clearly that the list published by the Rivers State Government of companies pencilled down for renovation of schools reflects total values of contracts and not the paltry stipends provided as mobilization in all cases. The APC is convinced that this is a deliberate misinformation to hoodwink the ordinary Rivers man and Nigerians just to paint the Amaechi administration in bad light to deflect attention from the N11 billion fraud by the Wike government. If the government is sincere it would have published the whole contract sums alongside what was paid out to the companies as mobilization. The government deliberately chose not to do so for obvious mischievous political reasons.



“The press release by the Rivers State Government signed by its Information and Communication Commissioner, Austin Tam-George flies in the face of proper reasoning.



“For all he cares, Austin Tam-George is free to pursue his personal vendetta against Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi for the former governor not awarding him the running of a curious programme he so badly needed but the Commissioner must accept that he goofed big time by stating that the Attorney-General’s directive to EFCC to investigate the fraud by the governor is “manifestly illegal and ridiculous.” He should be reminded that if the Office of the AGF could, by law, direct the Chief Judge of Bayelsa State to swear-in Gov Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, the AGF also has the power to order an investigation into the curious and fraudulent withdrawals from the Rivers State bank accounts. Where lies the usurpation of the powers of the Rivers State House of Assembly?



“Mr. Austin Tam-George can relish the privilege of running a campaign of calumny against Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi from one media house to another; at least that was what got him the job as Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communications but he should not stand facts on their head. There was no assurance that life would have become Eldorado for Tam-George if Amaechi awarded him the contract he wanted because of the governor’s frugality. So, the Commissioner should temper his vengeful vituperations against the Minister since Gov. Nyesom Wike eventually offered him a chance for economic survival this time.



“The usual refrain by the government that the Amaechi administration received over 3 trillion Naira in 8 years is already sounding like a severely broken gramophone record. Assuming without conceding that that amount was received, why is it that the Wike administration is not listing all the projects and programmes undertaken by the Amaechi administration in which he was Chief of Staff for 4 years. Were the so-called N3 trillion received in 4 years after he had left the administration or did he leave the administration in protest of that?



“The APC believes that the desire of Gov Nyesom Wike is to inspire the PDP with Rivers taxpayers’ money to win the Presidency in 2019 in order to escape what is awaiting him. This is evidenced by the loans he took to fund the failed PDP National Convention in Port Harcourt and the huge sum he provided for the failed PDP Edo State Governorship Primary Election while workers in Rivers State are groaning without salaries for upwards of 6 months depending on the Ministry, Agency or Department. Worse is the local government workers who have all become miserable across the State. However, his efforts have registered disastrous consequences already. Gov Wike must know that his inequities as Minister of education are waiting for him and would catch up with him as soon as his immunity toga falls off and it does not matter how long.




“The APC wishes to advise Gov. Nyesom Wike and his officials to simply forget contriving evil plans against the APC and the Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi as such insidious efforts will continue to fail. Gov. Nyesom Wike knows that his former boss is a good man but the governor is just unable to digest the fact that the Minister has since moved on.”

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
