Nov. 11 Supreme Court Ruling Commissioners, LGA Chairmen On Looting Spree

GOV. AMAECHI Ahead of the Supreme Court verdict, in a case between the Governor of Rivers State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and his estranged cousin, Barr. Celestine Omehia in November 11, 2013, some Commissioners and Local Government Chairmen in Rivers state have commenced the looting of public funds.

According to reliable sources because of the unpredictable nature of the case before the Supreme Court sitting in Abuja, the Nigeria’s federal capital territory, some top government functionaries are shifting and siphoning funds meant for the development of the state to their private bank accounts.

The sources further hinted this weekly that, beside monies, other valuable such as official vehicles, computers and other office equipment estimated at millions of naira are also carted away secretly by unidentified political aides to some top Government officials.

The Newswriter’s investigation revealed that government’s official documents such as files containing important information in some government’s ministries were disappeared before the October 3, 2013 sitting  of the Supreme Court judges.

The investigation further disclosed that for the fear of the decision of the Supreme Court judges, the Governor Amaechi’s administration has stopped work on some major projects in the state. These projects include amongst several others, the Eagle Island link Road. The contractors have left the site long time ago.

Nothing seems to be working in the state owned Government Ministries and Parastatals, as everyone is waiting to see the verdict of the Supreme Court. ###
