Amaechi Is A True Child Of God, He Can’t Bribe Judges – APC

President Muhammadu Buhari and the All progressives Congress, APC, have made a U-turn in defence of the Minister Of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi on the recent bribe saga, saying the minister cannot offer bribe to any judge in the country to buy justice.

Speaking in Port Harcourt, on Saturday night, the APC State Secretary, Emeka Beke stated that Amaechi was a true worshipper of God and cannot intend to buy justice with money.

Earlier, there had been reports that there was an orchestrated plot to sack Amaechi and the Minister of Science and technology, Ogbonnaya Onu for allegedly attempting to bribe a justice of the Supreme Court.

While Justice Sylvester Ngwuta of the Supreme Court alleged that Amaechi begged him to pervert justice, by cancelling the Governorship election in Ekiti State, and order fresh election to favour his friend, Kayode Fayemi,
Justice Inyang Okoro alleged that Amaechi also attempted to bribe him, to influence the elections in Rivers, Abia, and Akwa Ibom States.

Similarly, Justice Ngwuta alleged that Dr. Onu, invited him to his house, and demanded that he influenced the outcome of the Governorship election appeal for Ebonyi State, in favour of the Labour Party candidate in the State, who had reportedly agreed to decamp to the APC.

While defending Amaechi, APC claimed that the minister has the fear of God and dismissed the allegations that Amaechi had met the two Supreme Court Judges to seek favour for APC governorship candidates in Rivers State and Akwa Ibom State as bias and baseless.

“They are just trying to destroy the political image of Amaechi because they see that he is growing politically. We want to call on the good people of Nigeria that Amaechi has the fear of God and cannot bribe a judge to buy justice. He is a true child of God and has integrity.

“The allegations made by Justice Inyang Okoro and Justice Sylvester Ngwuta against the Minister of Transportation, Hon. Amaechi, are baseless and concocted. It is aimed to demean the minister of transportation.”

Beke who said he has known Amaechi for over 15 years said that the dignity of the minister cannot be questioned, stressing that the allegations were dubious tales aimed at diverting the attention of the public from the real issue at hand.

He urged the Judges to allow Amaechi to concentrate in his national assignment, noting that the duo concocted the accusation to muddle the issues of their arrest and the on-going investigation by the DSS.
