Ignore the antics of Rotimi Amaechi – Deputy Gover­nor of Rivers State

by on August 2, 2017

The Deputy Gover­nor of Rivers State, Dr Mrs Ipalibo Harry, has urged Rivers people to discountenance the criticisms of the APC and former Governor Rotimi Amaechi which, she said, are the antics of a drowning politician.

Dr Banigo, who de­scribed Governor Nye­som Wike as the Joshua of the time, said it is unfortunate that rather than applaud Gov Wike for sticking out his neck against all odds to defend the interest of the Rivers people, some politicians in the cloak of the APC have decided to launch a campaign of calumny against the governor.

The Deputy Governor who stated this yesterday in Government House Port Harcourt, said: “Let right thinking Rivers peo­ple judge this. A governor who decides to promote the independence of the Judiciary by building houses for Judges to retire to, a governor who came to open the Courts that were placed under lock and keys for over a year, a governor that followed due process in the ap­pointment of Chief Judg­es, a governor who pro­vided cars for Judges and Magistrates, constructed new buildings for the Ju­diciary, a governor who releases the budget of the Judiciary as a first line charge for the Judiciary to have financial autonomy and a former governor who shut the doors of the Judiciary for over one year who is better”.

She said It’s unfortu­nate that former Gover­nor Amaechi who is one of the greatest beneficiar­ies of the Judiciary has turned out to be the great­est critic of the Judiciary. “How else can one ex­plain his criticism of Hon Justice Walter Onnoghen for coming to perform the Ground Breaking Cer­emony of Judges Quar­ters in Port Harcourt last week”? the Deputy Gov­ernor stressed.

She said in other states of the federation those who lost elections have come to terms with real­ity and are joining hands with the government of the day to foster unity and development.
