The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the recent reports by two Justices of the Supreme Court on former Governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi are enough to indict the former governor who currently serves as Minister of Transportation under President Buhari’s cabinet.

Justice Okoro Inyang and Justice Sylvester Ngwuta both of the Supreme Court had fingered Amaechi in an alleged bribery and corruption scandal.

Speaking with newsmen in Port Harcourt, the State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Samuel Wanosike said the party in the state has been justified about its argument that the former governor allegedly misappropriated state funds.

Wanosike further said there is a moral burden on President Muhammadu Buhari to prosecute all those mentioned in the statement of the two Supreme Court Justices.

He, however, called for the resignation of Amaechi as the Minister of Transportation, adding that his resignation will give room for proper investigation of the allegations.

“We of the PDP in Rivers state have been vindicated. We are not surprised because we knew Amaechi was stingingly corrupt. Under his watch over three points, something close to trillion was misused.

“President Muhammadu Buhari now the moral burden to let Nigerians know if he is truly fighting corruption.
