#SoundOff: On Amaechi’s Supposed $775 Million In A US Bank Account

I don’t think that story on former Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi writing to a foreign bank to repatriate funds ‘mistakenly’ lodged in an account is to be believed. The source of the news, the websites, are not credible and over the past few days, stories that Christiane Amanpour investigated Amaechi have turned out to be false.

While I am not in any doubt that Amaechi might have mismanaged public funds, if one is to factor in the fact that he almost single-handedly bankrolled President Muhammadu Buhari’s election, I am also objective enough to point out hifalutin stories from concocted websites.

The story looks like a hatchet job to me and is not credible.

For the records, I hope Amaechi will get his comeuppance very soon by way of investigation by the Buhari administration but like those supporting Jonathan always argue in Jonathan’s case, including me, it has to follow the due process of the law.

  1. I had the presentiment that this administration would be vindictive especially when Atiku is silently dictating the direction and decisions it takes.Every body is monitoring the spate of witc-hunting that has characterised this administration.It behoves the incumbent to know that the success or failure of this regime rests with him-no other persons.It’s time he severed himself from those veiled spooks dictating the pace in this administration
