Government Orders Amaechi, Others To Return N97bn

Rivers State Government on Friday ordered the immediate past governor of the state, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, former military administrator of the state, Anthony Ukpo (retd.) and others who had held public offices in the past to return N97bn.

This is just as the State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, had announced the suspension of some permanent secretaries said to have been indicted by the report of the Justice George Omereji commission of inquiry.
The state government, who briefed newsmen shortly after the State Executive Council meeting at the Government House in Port Harcourt, declared that the sum was misappropriated in the sale of Rivers State valued assets.
The State Commissioner for Housing, Mr. Emma Okah, who spoke with newsmen after a White Paper was issued based on the report of the commission of inquiry, said Amaechi and others found to have been involved in the misappropriation of state funds must return them or face prosecution.
