Transportation Minister, Chibuike Amaechi, says the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), is working for the Peoples Democratic Party’s interest in the polls in Rivers.

In a chat with journalists in his country home in Port Harcourt on Thursday, Amaechi said that the INEC chairman, Yakubu Mahmood, was being loyal to Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers because he once served under him.

Amaechi said: “An example that INEC is working for the PDP is a fact that there is a stay of execution granted by the Court of Appeal.

“Just because the INEC Chairman was Director of TETFUND under Wike as Minister of State for Education, he now chooses the Court order to implement and the one not to implement.

“Obviously, he is trying to assist Wike become a second term on this . We understand his game but we believe in the Judiciary.

“You heard the President when he said that the injustice will be addressed. We will deal with the justice and not the judgement. I listened to our governor when spoke about violence.

“I don’t like violence because if you kill somebody you can’t replace the life. APC just lost 15 persons and I was touring people’s houses and trying to identify with their pains.

“When former President Goodluck Jonathan came for campaign here and 12 people died, I saw them eating lunch.

“Persons have gone, whether for good or for bad, they will never come back. I will never support violence and I will never support injustice.

Governors of the 36 states were said to have received N1billion each from the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government to cushion the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Governors were also said to have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the World Bank to receive a sum of N1.1billion for the same purpose.

Yahaya Bello of Kogi State made this revelation on Tuesday while featuring on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily.

According to Gov Bello, all the state governors have since received the N1billion from the Federal Government.

Asked why he received the COVID-19 fund from the Federal Government despite not believing in the virus, Bello said, “even though we did not have COVID-19 in Kogi State, we are equally affected; because our economy was equally affected and Federal Government released that fund to assist every state and we cannot reject it.”

He stated that he refused to sign the World Bank MoU because it was a one-sided agreement or document.

The Kogi Governor debunked allegations that his government hoarded the CA-COVID relief packages in Lokoja or anywhere in the State as being rumoured.
