I was sent to destroy Amaechi, Wike’s government is criminal – Livingstone Wechie [VIDEO]
Livingstone Wechie has recanted two years after launching a smear campaign against former Governor of Rivers state and now Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi over allegations of corruption.

Wechie while speaking on a live television programme said all documents used to smear the image of Amaechi were fabricated by agent of Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike.
He added that he (Wechie) personally developed the blueprint of the whitepaper presented by the Justice George Omereji-led Judicial Panel of Inquiry that investigated the Minister.
Wechie who led the campaign against the former Governor on the platform of Integrity Group also revealed that the smear campaign was adopted as a campaign strategy to defeat the All Progressives Congress in the 2015 general elections.

He further revealed that his appearance before the Nigerian Senate as well as the Judicial Panel of Inquiry were all stage-managed.
Livingstone Wechie also took a swipe at the Rivers state Government led by Governor Nyesom Wike, stressing that the Governor is running a criminal government.
He said the refusal of Governor Wike to make the 2015 mid-term budget, the 2016 and 2017 budget available for public scrutiny is an act of criminality.

According to him, “We acted in 2015 believing that the documents used in fighting Rotimi Amaechi were true, being documents emanating from the Government. Time has played out, we have just realised that those documents were only politically fabricated just to fight and stop Rotimi Amaechi’s appointment.
“I was the architect of Justice Omereji’s panel report that indicted Rotimi Amaechi in 2015. I drew the script, the report etc.
“The only intention of Nyesom Wike’s government was to let the world know how bad this man, Rotimi Amaechi was, and leave it at that without prosecution, because they have nothing really indicting him. They have continued to ride on those wings to exhibit fiscal irresponsibility in Government.
“No Commissioner in Wike’s government can award a contract, not even for the supply of ordinary pencil. Everything, contracts, projects etc is being done by Governor Wike himself.
“In the 8 years of Amaechi’s tenure, the Budget was a public document. But, in this Wike’s government, no one government official, not even commissioners have access to the budget for these two years. Only a criminal hides Budget.

“My joy is that I now have the opportunity to explain what actually played out in 2015 and still going on.”
