By Job Osazuwa

Prof. Itse Sagay said yesterday that Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike delib­erately set up an investigative panel to probe his predecessor, Rotimi Amae­chi and subsequently issued a white panel on the probe in order to block his chances of being appointed a minister.

Amaechi is now Transportation Min­ister and represents Rivers State in the Federal Executive Council (FEC).

Sagay also said in the next six months, all corruption cases in court will be concluded. He said this on a television programme: “Assessing the government,” yesterday,

Asked by the anchor why current members of the All Progressives Con­gress ( APC), formerly in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were not being persecuted, especially those who were governors, Sagay said if anybody has any evidence against any APC mem­bers, suspected to have looted public fund should come forward and report such a politician, assuring that investi­gation would commence.

On why panel raised by Wike to investigate Amaechi was not followed to the letter or taken over by the Eco­nomic and Financial Crimes Commis­sion (EFCC), he said the panel lacked credibility.   The Sun
