I won't tolerate any attempt to tarnish my image - Amaechi

Minister of Transportation and former governor of River state, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, says he would resist any attempt to discredit him or tarnish his image.

In a statement by his media office on Friday, Amaechi raised an alarm over a plot by a group to smear his reputation by alleging that he is involved in a court case involving the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

The minister noted that he has no vested interest in any court matter involving the APC in Rivers or anywhere in the country, warning that such allegations will be dealt with.

The statement read, “We are aware of plots by a group attempting to muddle the name of the Honourable Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi by dragging him into an ongoing court case involving the All Progressives Congress, APC in Rivers State.

“The group has perfected plans to rubbish Amaechi’s image by falsely claiming that he (Amaechi) plans to influence the outcome of the said court matter.

“We want to clearly state that the Honourable Minister is not in court with anybody or any matter relating to the APC. He is in no way involved in any case whatsoever with the APC in Rivers or any other individual or entity in relation to the party.

“The individuals or group pushing this patently false, ill-conceived narrative about the honourable minister are by this statement warned to immediately desist from their evil plot. We are not unaware of their sponsors and paymasters. We will shame them publicly in due time if they don’t put a stop to their nefarious, ungodly, treacherous plans.

“Let us restate that the Honourable Minister, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi is not a defendant or respondent in any matter in court relating to the APC whether in Rivers State or anywhere else.”
