PORT HARCOURT— Ikwerre Youth Movement International, IYM, has described the bribery allegations against the Minister of Transportation, Mr. Chibuike Amaechi, by two judges as a reflection of efforts by mischief makers to destroy the reputation of the minister.
In a statement in Port Harcourt, Chikere Wanjoku, Tony Okocha and Lucky Worluh, said the allegations were the latest attempts by those who failed to stop Amaechi‘s nomination as minister to paint him black with unsubstantiated claims.
The statement said it was unfortunate that rather than explain how they came by the alleged huge sums of money found in their houses by the Department of State Services, DSS, they were busy diverting attention with unfounded bribery allegations.
It said: “We are mindful of the fact the attacks on the Mr. Chibuike Amaechi is a well choreographed attempt by mischief makers using the two judges to paint the minister in unpalatable social colours having failed to stop his nomination, clearance and subsequent swearing in as a minister.
“We make bold to say that all their allegations bear marks of their paymasters who are hiding under the immunity clause to do all within their powers to politicise the issues of corruption levelled against the justices.“
