Mr. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has alleged that the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, is behind the trial of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.

Onnoghen is facing trial for his alleged failure to declare his assets as the nation’s number judge. He has been arraigned before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) by the federal government.

But Wike speaking during Rivers 2019 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), State Campaign Rally at Eleme on Thursday alleged that Amaechi made the confession to an APC Chieftain in Abuja.

He said, “At that meeting in Abuja last Monday, Amaechi confessed he is the person behind the crisis facing the CJN. He bragged that he will destroy the CJN the way he brought Former President Goodluck Jonathan down.

“He wants to destroy the nation’s judiciary. This particular evil will finally consume Amaechi.”

He further alleged, “Amaechi is notorious for destruction of the Judiciary, having closed down Rivers Judiciary for two years”, wondered why Amaechi hates the Judiciary despite being a beneficiary of the vibrancy of the Judiciary.

He said: “If there is any thief, Amaechi  is the proper thief. This thief sold our valued assets to his business partner, Mr Tonye Cole “.

On the retirement of immediate past Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, Wike said, ” He was a representative of Satan in Nigeria. He represented Satan but the prayers and fasting of Nigerians ensure he retired despite plans to retain him.

“If Buhari has any integrity, he should investigate the killing of the Resident Electoral Commissioner in Kano alongside his family during the 2015 General elections. Buhari must ask what killed the REC and his family while Ibrahim Idris was commissioner of police”.

To people of Elements, he said, “Buhari is not aware of anything, not aware he hates Rivers people and yet to execute any project in the state. How can you support a President who does not respect the rule of law? If he fails to respect the law in his first term, the second term would be a disaster .

“The only way that Eleme people will get Onne Port to start working again, is to vote for Atiku Abubakar. He is a man with the knowledge to create employment opportunities and develop the economy”, he said.

He declared that Buhari and the APC will lose in all the six states of the South-South, saying no deployment of security forces will help the failed APC Federal Government.

All Progressives Comgress, APC, chieftain in Rivers, Prince Tonye Princewill, said over Wike’s fingering of Amaechi on Onnoghen’s trial just, said, “People have learnt to disregard what Wike says and this gibberish is no exception.

“Many of us can remember when he called a press conference over missing money in Ikeja and his ultimatum to the Federal Government. The man is not worthy of a considered response. Good luck to any who take him seriously.”
