"The 1st Thing I Did When I Became Governor Was To Apologize To The Igbos In Rivers" -Rotimi Amaechi

Some moments ago, the Nigerian Tribune reported that Nigeria's former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi, has made some clarifications about his alleged promise of returning the abandoned properties of civil war to igbos in Rivers state if Tonye Cole wins.

Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi said, "you all were here when I became governor of Rivers state. The first (1st) thing I did was to apologize to the igbos in the state." He added, "I have never said anything about compensation on abandoned properties to the Igbos in Rivers State."

Again, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi said, "what I did while addressing the igbos recently was just to rehash my apology." He urged the public to be careful about fake news and hopes that people seek confirmation before believing anything they see on the media.

Lastly, former minister Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi said, "I would not have responded to the allegations but there was a need to because my statements were deliberately twisted by Governor Nyesom Wike and his agents."

What do you think about this?
