Immediate past governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi says contrary to what is being said by Governor Nyesom Wike and his aides, he did not leave the state treasury empty. He said he left behind the sum of N10 billion for the present administration. Amaechi stated this in a statement he released today August 20th
"A total of N7.5 billion cash were left behind as balances in the State Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) account with Skye Bank, FAAC account with Zenith Bank, balances with Access Bank and funds in the State reserve fund account in First Bank.
This is besides other balances in the state Government House account with Zenith Bank and other government MDA accounts, like the Bureau for Public Procurement (BPP). By the time you pull all these together, we are looking at readily available cash in the region of eight to ten billion naira left for the Wike administration.”he said
