The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers state has declared Rotimi Amaechi, immediate past governor of the state, as “clean, spotless and untainted by corruption”.
It urged President Muhammadu Buhari to disregard desperate efforts by Nyesom Wike, the incumbent, to tarnish Amaechi’s image.
“We make bold to say that if there is any clean and spotless former governor in Nigeria, that person is Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, CON,” David Ikanya, chairman of the state chapter of the party, said in a statement issued by his spokesman, Eze Chukwuemeka.
