Amaechi faces probe

Recent actions of the new Rivers state governor shows that Rotimi Amaechi’s regime is under the microscope. Nyesom Wike has directed Permanent Secretaries in the state to produce full account details of their Ministries’ expenditure in the last eighteen months.

Wike also charged  the permanent  secretaries  to  shun partisan politics  as career civil  servants,  saying the roles some of  them played in  the  closing  days of the immediate  past administration  were politically  motivated.

Addressing  permanent  secretaries  during  a meeting  at Government  House,  Port Harcourt on Tuesday,  Wike regretted that some of the  permanent  secretaries helped the immediate  past  administration to illegally  withdraw  funds from the State Government  coffers  even a day to the swearing in of a new governor. 2015.

“I want full details and print out of every ministry’s account in the last 18 months. I will not accept any handover note without an accompanying account details.

“The government was coming to a close and some of you were busy signing cheques on 26, 27 and 28 of May. On 28 of May, the Transition Committee called most of you and you refused to cooperate because they  told you  I will  not be sworn-in,” Wike disclosed.

The  governor  noted  that  he  will  not witch hunt any civil servant irrespective  of his/her role in the electioneering  period . He, however, said that no civil servant would be allowed to sabotage the  efforts of  his administration. Read more
