Femi Fani-Kayode defrauded Rivers government of N2b – Rotimi Amaechi


The minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has accused the former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode of defrauding the Rivers state government.
Amaechi said ex-Rivers Governor Peter Odili paid N2b to the ministry of aviation under Fani-Kayode to repair the runway of the state’s airport but the project was not carried out.
According to the minister, “Rivers state government paid N2b to the ministry of aviation as part of its contribution to repair the runway that collapsed, and the man (Fani-Kayode) picked it and ran away.”
The minister made the revelation while speaking on a Channels Television program – Hard Copy.
When asked if he has evidence to substantiate his claims, the minister said he will give the documents to the anchor of the program.
Amaechi also said he feels Nigerians owe him a lot because he saved the country from a government that was corrupt.
The former Governor of Rivers state also debunked allegations of corruption leveled against him by the Nyesom Wike administration.
