Rivers State Governor-elect, Barrister Nyesom Wike, has indicated his readiness to probe the Rotimi Amaechi administration after being sworn in as the chief executive of the state.
Wike, according to Punchng.com made the statement while receiving the interim report of the Transition Committee in Port Harcourt on Monday, adding that his administration would carry out a forensic audit of all government accounts.
He explained that the measure would enable him to recover funds that might have allegedly been stolen by top officials of the outgoing administration in the state.
“I am not going to be intimidated. The only way we can work together is to check the ills of the past. The right thing must be done. Those who have stolen the resources of the state must be made to account for them.
“I have the political will to drive the process to its logical conclusion. The massive stealing of government resources was a deliberate attempt to create problems for the incoming administration.”
“All backdated appointments and certificates of occupancy being hurriedly issued by outgoing governor would be set aside.
“All the top officials of Amaechi administration who have refused to cooperate in the interest of Rivers State during the transition period will soon cooperate whether they like it or not.
“Those who have closed the courts will be the same persons rushing to the courts when we open the courts.”
