‘I Never Promised Igbo’s In Rivers A Return Of Abandoned Property’ – Amaechi

The Former minister of transportation and also a former Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi has clarified that he never promised to compensate Igbos on their abandoned properties resulting from the Nigerian Civil War.

Amaechi, in a statement through his media team, noted that he, “only apologized to the Igbos, on behalf of the state on abandoned properties from the Nigerian civil war.”

However, the former Governor of Rivers State has come out to deny making such a promise saying that “unscrupulous and ill-advised elements” twisted and misrepresented his speech during his stakeholders meeting with Igbos in Rivers State last week. He said if he had been in power at the time, he would never have let such happen.

According to Amaechi, the news about the compensation emanated from Governor Nyesom Wike, whose intention is to cause confusion in the state.

He expressed disappointment that, “the respected Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers fell for the fake news sponsored by Wike, without further clarification.”

The former governor said Wike and his agents of mischief now trade in divisive fake news, to destroy his character.

He has also beckoned on Rivers people to disregard the fake news from Wike.
