Rotimi Amaechi the immediate past governor of Rivers state, had a thanksgiving service in Port Harcourt yesterday to celebrate the 8th year of the supreme court ruling that made him governor of the state on October 25th 2007.
During the service which was attended by APC leaders in the state including the APC governorship candidate, Dakuku Peterside, Amaechi accused the state governor, Nyesom Wike of borrowing N45 billion loan which he cannot account for.
“I borrowed N300bn and I paid N245bn back and I left about N15bn. But now, they are not borrowing to pay contractors. Rather they are borrowing for themselves. Borrow to pay contractors not for your purse. They have borrowed N45bn and nobody is seeing it. If you put N45bn in the state economy, the state will be bouncing. They will employ more workers, pay them and you will see things working. It is those roads that I have done that they are driving on. The stadium road was done by me and they are driving on it. I did underground gutter, but they are building gutter and covering it” he said.
