The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has petitioned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and has requested that the anti corruption agency investigate Rotimi Amaechi.
Rotimi Amaechi, the former Rivers state governor is alleged to have engaged in corrupt practices as during his tenure as governor and the PDP is determined that he must be investigated.
The PDP Deputy Publicity Secretary in Rivers, Mr. Samuel Nwanosike, called on President Buhari to prove that his promise of intolerance for corruption is real.
In a statement to journalists, he said, “Since the President of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari, has told the world that he is a man with zero tolerance for corruption, we, the people of Rivers, are asking that there should be no sacred cow. We are saying that corruption in Rivers State should be investigated and justice should be done.
“As we speak to you, we cannot trace the proceeds that emanated from all the government’s transactions that that took place in Rivers State.”
