“I’ll manipulate judiciary against Amaechi” – Rivers Governor Wike Nyesom

Published

on

The feud between the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi and the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, seems to have no end. Just when many had thought that the recent meeting
of the political rivals in the State might somewhat mend their severed
relationship – at least at face value – apparently Wike and Amaechi are
not finished.

Last week, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, accompanied by Amaechi, visited Rivers to commission some completed projects by the Wike administration.
During the visit, Wike and Amaechi flew in the same helicopter, although reports said Osinbajo compelled them.

However,
in a statement issued by Amaechi’s media office on Sunday, July 30, the
Minister accused Wike of boasting that he has the Chief Justice of
Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen and the judiciary as a whole in his pocket.
The Governor allegedly bragged that he can manipulate any judgement against Amaechi.
The Minister also alleged that Wike is running an administration
“that embarks on wholesale forgery and distortion of government
documents and then retails it out to his minions, the media and now the
judiciary in a shameful and futile bid to defame and destroy Amaechi.”
The statement reads:
“Rivers
State governor Nyesom Wike has continued to twist, falsify and forge
fresh documents that he intends to use against the immediate past
governor of the state and now Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon.
Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.
“Wike
wants to use the elaborately distorted and most times outright but
carefully forged documents to persecute and prosecute his erstwhile
benefactor in court. In the past couple of days, Wike has been telling
anyone who cares to listen, bragging that he will certainly get a
conviction, a judgement against Amaechi in the law courts on spurious
charges of corruption using his forged documents because he (Wike) is in
control of the judiciary at the state and national level.
“For
the avoidance of doubt, we wish to state that Wike has been boasting
that he has the judges in the Rivers State judiciary in his pocket, that
he’s in full control and that the State Judiciary would always give him
any judgement he wants against Amaechi.
“Furthermore,
Wike is bragging that the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) is his ‘main
man’, that would readily and easily assist him to get any judgement he
wants against Amaechi at the apex court, using his contorted documents.
“Wike
is also telling anyone who cares to listen that the Supreme Court
(Justices) and judges generally are not happy with Amaechi and so they
would easily convict him with any forged document he presents in court.
Power drunk Wike is using the recent visit of the CJN to Rivers State as
his bragging right to prove his ‘extreme’ closeness to the CJN.
“Nigerians
would recall that only a few days back, Livingstone Wechie, the young
man Wike used to accuse Amaechi of corruption and write false and
frivolous petitions to the National Assembly, EFCC etc, confessed in a
live television programme and in a statement he also circulated to the
media, that all the documents he used to wrongfully portray Amaechi as
corrupt when he governed Rivers State, were phonies, forged documents
given to him by Wike’s Rivers State Government House.
“Wechie
also admitted, like we have always said, that the forged documents were
used as the template and basis for the Justice Omereji led Judicial
Commission of Inquiry, a panel Wike set up early in his administration
to witch-hunt, malign, vilify and persecute Amaechi.
“Sadly,
this is the kind of administration that presides over the affairs of
Rivers people. An administration that embarks on wholesale forgery and
distortion of government documents and then retails it out to his
minions, the media and now the judiciary in a shameful and futile bid to
defame and destroy Amaechi. Brazenly, without any scruples, Governor
Wike runs an administration that manufactures and concocts documents to
indict Amaechi of corruption. Yes, this is the kind of character, a
low-level con man that is at the helm of affairs in Rivers State. “Since
he became governor, Wike’s sole agenda has been to attack and vilify
Rotimi Amaechi, no matter how ridiculous and silly he sounds.
“Since
he became governor, Wike’s sole agenda has been to attack and vilify
Rotimi Amaechi, no matter how ridiculous and silly he sounds.   Every
day in Rivers State, there is one frivolous, false story of what Amaechi
did or didn’t do. Same pattern, the same blatant lies using distorted
and forged documents, same old concocted stories of corruption
allegations against Amaechi told with different twists.
“Nigerians
will not forget in a hurry how Nyesom Wike, hurriedly called a
suspicious late night press conference to lie that the over $43 million
found by EFCC in a luxury apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos, and the apartment
belongs to Amaechi. “Wike shamelessly said that the money was part of
what was stolen from Rivers State – and warehoused in the Ikoyi house –
by his predecessor and current Minister for Transportation, Rotimi
Amaechi.
“Not done with his
concocted tales, Wike went further to threaten the President Mohammadu
Buhari administration with fire and brimstone if the money is not
returned to him (Wike).
“Wike
shamelessly said that the money was part of what was stolen from Rivers
State – and warehoused in the Ikoyi house – by his predecessor and
current Minister for Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.
“He
gave the Federal Government a seven-day ultimatum to return the money;
otherwise, he would institute the mother of all legal actions against
the Buhari government to recover the money.
“That’s
the typical Wike, a lying, reckless, irresponsible and brutal forger
that has become the laughing stock of his peers and the nation.”

Also
on Sunday, 300 members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ubima
in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers decamped to the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP).
Ubima is the hometown of Amaechi.
The Minister served as the fifth Governor of Rivers State from 2007 to 2015.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

on

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
, who is London, wants us to patronise made in Nigeria!
