The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress said on Monday that the immediate past governor of the State, Chibuike Amaechi, was clean and untainted by corruption while in office.
The party urged President Muhammadu Buhari to disregard efforts by the state governor, Nyesom Wike, to tarnish the image of the former governor.



Mr. Amaechi, who was governor between 2007 and 2015, is currently under investigation by a panel set up by Mr. Wike, who assumed office last May.
In a statement by its chairman, Davies Ikanya, the APC said if there was any former governor that was clean and spotless in Nigeria, it was Mr. Amaechi.


“Anybody who knows Amaechi well enough would readily testify that he is an honest, sincere but courageous gentleman, a first-class patriot who is ever ready to go the extra mile to see that Nigeria becomes a better place for the present and future generations,” it said.

The party condemned Mr. Wike’s alleged desperation to drag Mr. Amaechi’s name in the mud, the latest of which centres around a sponsored documentary on the former governor’s being aired on Africa Independent Television (AIT).
It said the documentary was part of Mr. Wike’s propaganda war against Amaechi for which he (Wike) had “earmarked billions of naira in the wicked plot to destroy and decimate the person and character of the former governor.”


The party claimed that other propaganda tools planned to be deployed in the war against Amaechi include sponsored publications such as advertorials, columns, editorials and OpEd articles in major international, national and local print media; sponsored personality discussion programmes in the electronic media and sponsored special documentaries for television and radio through independent groups and organisations.

It added, “This insidious plot by Wike include commissioning a team made up of persons within and outside the state to ‘initiate, formulate and contrive false damaging reports bordering on alleged corrupt practices of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and circulate same to individuals and institutions within Nigeria and abroad with a view to damaging the incorruptible character and rising profile of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi in order to blackmail and put pressure on President Buhari not to appoint the former governor into his government.
