The Rivers State Government yesterday accused former Governor Chibuike Amaechi of  frittering N3 trillion belonging to the State in eight years, saying that Amaechi left ‘most abandoned projects in the  history of the State’.

In a reaction, however, the opposition party in the state, the All Progressives Congress (APC), said the allegation was unfounded, as Amaechi could not have wasted such sum under any circumstances.

  The State Commissioner for Information, Dr. Tam-George who levelled the allegation against Amaechi, remarked that while Amaechi’s administration borrowed N4 billion agricultural loan from the Central Bank with no record of farmer-beneficiaries, Governor Wike’s N2 billion loan from the same source had recorded 35,000 beneficiaries that were small and medium scale entrepreneurs.

Speaking on the allegation, the Rivers State APC publicity secretary, Mr Chris Finebone dismissed it, accusing the State Information Commissioner of reeling out imaginary figures.

Finebone said, “For once, you guys should ask the Commissioner what was used for those uncompleted projects he claimed was abandoned. It is important he cross-check his records so that he can overcome his little dream world of make-belief.”
