No Comments
Rivers State government has approached the Minister for Transport and previous Rivers State representative, Chibuike Amaechi, to represent about N3 trillion he got all through his eight years residency as the legislative leader of the State. Identifying with media
associates in Port Harcourt yesterday January 28th, the State Commissioner for Information, Tam George said the State was all the while reeling from "the calamitous legacy of the previous senator" in spite of accepting more than three trillion naira in income in 8 years.

Amaechi left the most abandoned projects in the history of Rivers State since 1997. Thousands of workers were without their salaries for four months and thousands of teachers were not paid for nearly 12 months. We have so many abandoned projects which huge sums have been paid but projects are yet to be completed. We have the Mono-rail project that gulped over N60bn and it was abandoned. We have the Woji road project awarded at N3bn. There was a variation of the project to the upward of N14bn but it was abandoned. We inherited the project and completed it. There are so many of the abandoned projects. We have the Karibi George 250 bed project where huge sums of money were paid but no single block was laid at the site” he said.
