Amaechi sold Rivers’ asset to fund APC, Buhari – Tonye Princewill

Tonye Princewill

The governorship candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in Rivers State, Tonye Princewill, has accused Governor Rotimi Amaechi of selling the state’s assets to an indigenous oil company, Sahara Energy, and using the fund that accrued from the sale to finance the activities of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

PREMIUM TIMES recently reported how assets such as Olympia Hotel, Abonemma Wharf, Risonpalm and the power generating stations in the state were sold to Sahara Energy.

Mr. Princewill alleged that the over $800 million realized from the sale of the assets was never lodged into the coffers of the state government.

“Money changed hands but the accounts they entered were not necessarily Rivers state government’s officially operated accounts,” he said.

He also alleged that there is no evidence of competitive tendering, independent valuation or a transparency in the entire process, arguing that the “Rivers people cannot be sure they got a good deal”.

“In one instance approximately $400 million changed hands over an asset that could easily be worth twice that. Why the secrecy?” he said.

Mr. Princewill, who said he worked for the success of Mr. Amaechi during his election in 2007, also accused the governor of using threat and intimidation to force the sale of the assets to Sahara Energy after the company began to develop cold feet funding the politics of an opposition party.

“Incidentally the partners in the company (who were) uncomfortable with the obvious attempt to finance the politics of Amaechi hesitated to approve the transactions.

“But a prompt threat from the Rivers Government made them rethink. Can anyone say they did not know what the money would be used for?

“Amaechi is one of the chief financiers of the APC election and a close ally of Buhari,” he said.

He also accused the Rivers governor of using some of the proceeds of the sale to launch international propaganda for the 2015 election.

“Information reaching me is that international media organizations have already been paid in USD from these transactions to come and cover the 2015 elections in a Tahrir square strategy.

“The aim of the opposition is to gather crowds in a single location and beam pictures around the world creating the impression that the whole country is in chaos,” Mr. Princewill said.

Efforts to get the Rivers Information Commissioner, Ibim Semenitari, to react to the allegations were unsuccessful. She did not return calls and sms sent to her at the time of publishing.

Why I moved to Labour Party

PREMIUM TIMES’ exclusive chat with Mr. Princewill was preceded by a Press Conference, in which he told the media the reasons he recently left the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the Labour Party, LP.

He said the PDP did not treat all the aspirants in Rivers State fairly in the process that produced former Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike, as the candidate of the party in the state.

He said rather than agonise like others, he chose to look for a platform that shares the same belief and aspirations like him to actualize his dream of running for governor.

“2015 has been on our mind since 2007, the time has come and we have tried as much as we could to play it fair, and reasonable, but the PDP felt that in their best interest they are going to impose a candidate on us.

“While other aspirants had not had the good fortune, wisdom, courage or opportunity to move parties, I have; and I have moved into a party that I can quite comfortably call home,” he said.

He said he strongly believes that he has the support of the people, because unlike most politicians from the state, he declined to take up positions in the Senate and the federal cabinet.

“I declined both Senate and Ministerial positions to remain with the people.

“I stayed out of government and kept my political structure intact,” he said.

Mr. Princewill also stated that politicians are often forced to move from one party to another because most political parties in Nigeria lack ideology.

He, however, said the Labour Party is different because it stands for something, which he also believes in.

“The Labour Party has an ideology and concept of what government should be doing which is similar to my own,” he said.

“I am someone who believes that business should be allowed to thrive, but the ordinary people must be carried along, jobs need to be created and people need job security. I also believe that we should be looking at jobs for all, not just creating contracts for a few and in that light, the Labour party and myself share quiet a lot.

“We believe in social housing, free education, free health care and also believe that business should be partners with employees instead of a master/ servant relationship,” he said.

Mr. Princewill said the Labour Party would be his last political party.

“It is safe to say that I am not going to be moving again, if Labour party disappoints my constituency, then I will be quitting politics completely. I am not going back to PDP under any circumstances.

“I intend to finish my political career in the Labour Party whether I win or lose the next election,” he said.

He added that with his movement to the party and his adoption as its candidate, eleven other political parties have joined forces to endorse him as their candidate in 2015

“A press conference will be held in the next few days to unveil that position.

For 2015 in Rivers State, it is going to be the PDP, APC, and the rest. We are the underdogs, but that is the kind of underdog I prefer to be,” he said.

    This is really getting old.Wike has been a career politician.where is all the money coming.why can’t Nigerians be consistent in their criticisms.what is good for the goose is good for the gander.if Amaechi did not do what was necessary.he would have been an ex – governor by now.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      In other words……..Looting and plundering of government treasury and properties is a standard policy of the APC ?
      May God save Nigeria !!

      • Maria

        Nope.. 67 billion dollars disappeared from the national treasury… the whistleblower was sacked and almost got killed. That is PDP … the most corrupt party in the world.

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          Lying like a stark illiterate you are…..Do you even know what $68 billion is ?
          Ask Buhari to explain what happened to the $2.8 billion which vanished on his watch.

          • Maria

          • Maria

            Like those ferried to SA to buy arms! I can see how literate you are … money launderers may not use electronic means to hide money… bonobo.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            The money was meant for a legal purchase and it can be traced to source hence it is not “missing”. You need to understand the meaning of your baseless assertion of “$67 billion disappeared” !!

          • Maria

            Legal purchase in cash?…O boy indeed you are literate! Who transacts millions of dollars worth of business in cash in 21st century?

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            My brother, forget about that man pretending to be a woman. He has no idea what $68B is! Really i laff wen some of these APC minions showcase their ignorance! SERIOUS IGNORANCE THAT BORDERS ON STUPIDITY!
            $68B?? Over N8 trillion?????? ‘disappeared’?????? That’s our budget for a couple of years!
            Kai! Chai! See madness!!!!!!!!

          • Maria

            Now it is 68 billions? Thanks for correcting the figure.

          • Maria

            Friendly countries? And why did the friendly country blow the lid to expose your endemically corrupt leader?

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            As if you do not know that the APC sponsors of BH are the same unpatriotic elements who went to SA to obstruct the purchase of arms in a desperate bid to give their military wing in the Sambisa the upper hand !!

But PDP cannot rig and you expect the opposition not to even though rigging is wrong. PDP cannot steal the national treasury to build an election war chest and you expect the opposition to siddon look. Even a pastor may be forced to kill when his family are threatened by killers. APC will respond to every trick thePDP plays.that is the only way.

Even weapons you can’t buy for your soldiers? And you can get businesses including the power sector that you sold to yourselves and arm twist them to donate N21b in one day? Wonders shall never end.

I’m sure he won’t spare any mud to hurl and any levers of state apparatus to unleash at Amechi . So I won’t give this expose a shred of credibility until I hear a rebuttal from the horse’s mouth or more allegations with proof until then let’s do a Bola Ige make we siddon dey look

      • warry

        A thief is a thief whether in APC or PDP. Amaechi is definitely one and he rightly said so. The state House of Assembly sits in Govt. House and no Judiciary in the State. For now he enjoys protection from his partners in crime his House of Assembly..People who are far away from Rivers State are saying what they do not Know.

      • Otile

        Funny you have now become an avid defender of Rivers state people. What do you know about Rivers state politics, or is it for the sake of partisanship you come here to insult me? What prompted the load of insults you heaped on me calling me e-rat, clown, mumu?

  • Amaechi had already admitted that Governors and other Politicians steal public funds. The degree to which this is done is the problem. How can one steal a nation dry along with the fund pipe. CNN in one of its broadcasts,
    posits that over 100 million Nigerians live below the Poverty line. However, the National Bureau of Statistics said over 54% of Youths in Nigeria are jobless, while the World Bank puts the figure at 56%.
    According to Dr Okonjo Iweala, the Misery index increased in 2013. The consequence of this is that the Youths and
    Poor are becoming more susceptible to crimes.That is the issue.

  • Frank Bassey

    This is not corruption. Buhari should have asked Amaechi the source of the huge amount he gave to him to contest APC primaries. Yet, this is Mr anti-corruption.

    • Tonnero

      that is why OBJ has been one of the best for Nigeria. Is it that you expect APC to go into elections with no money while PDP has cornered the national treasury to itself? If that is the case, APC might as well go home and watch home video. To fight thieves to a standstill, you sometimes have to think like them and d ploy their own tactics against them. it is like a schoolboy being punished in school for striking back ata colleague who struck first. You guys do this all the time. You said it when APC legislators scaled NASS fence. Let us be clear: if APC has any chance of unseating this thieving government, they must roll up their sleeves and match them toe to toe. No one will roll over and die for you.

      • israel amulum

        And your so called apc don’t steal.and the five governors you baptised last year are now saints.you talk trash my friend.

        • Tonnero

          Where in my post did I absolve any thieving governors whether new joiners or old APC members? Why is your Oga wasting time to pick them up if he has not rendered the EFCC and ICPC toothless? Bad as it is, governors being thieves is very different from a party that not only endorses but celebrates them from Alams, to Fayose, Abacha, Kashamu, Muazu etc. if EFCC has a case against any governor, they should proceed to court.

      My friend, this is not work. When you go into pimp business, you generation will be distroyed.

  • favourtalk

    I thought this guy’s mature ki jut he too won’t stop all those cheap talks and allegation just to gain people popularity, it doesn’t work that way, you need to do better. That is why he couldn’t win a governorship ticket. Shame on the PDP agenda in rivers state and shame onto then all because they have all fail

    • 247don007

      Why not come up with fact to disprove his claims rather than condemning his potent accusation?

      • favourtalk

        Why can’t he tell us where the money was deducted and the money transfers, the cheque, the people that collected iT and where they took the money . Nigerians are not fools, you can’t just bring an allegation without fact and expect us to believe him. Let him bring his face and we can dispute it.

        • 247don007

          Am really surprised at ur comment above. Did u read the full article at all? A response to ur comment from bottom up:

          1. U can see his face & full names in the article.

          2. From the article, PT recently reported how assets such as Olympia Hotel, Abonemma Wharf, Risonpalm and the power generating stations in the state were sold to Sahara Energy. Mr. Princewill alleged that the over $800 million realized from the sale of the assets was never lodged into the coffers of the state government.

          Please do ursef a favour to read the full article before coming up with a defense.

          • sharp shape

            Thank you ! Thiefnubu and buharam disciples are fanatics and retards !

        • Es3

          Is that what you would have said if this information was against Jonathan or PDP???!!!

          Selective anti-corruption king in hypocritical naked dance!!!

        • DESTINY,

          he can’t open up in such magnitude on a case that has not been taking over by the EFCC,

      • Es3

        No, they won’t because it is against Amaechi and APC???!!!

        If it was against Jonathan or PDP, to them, it would have been guilty as charged!!!

        Hypocrites of the highest order!!!

        • olu_kay

          I support Buhari in the 2014 elections,but at the same time acknowledge the corruption of the source of his funding from Ameachi and Tinubu. We Nigerians know Tinubu and Amaechi are corrupt career politicians.

          • Otile

            In other words you are holding your nose hugging the pig.

          • olu_kay

            We have a choice between the lesser of two evils Goodluck Jonathan and Mohammed Buhari. Buhari has shown by his andecents when he was in power when he arrested over 4000 politicians for corruption when he ruled for 18 months that he is the better option. Unfortunately the way the political system is currently,he has to forge alliances with corrupt career politicians such as Tinibu,Akume,Okorocha and Amaechi in order to obtain the Presidency,it’s just the way the present system is structured. When he gets into power in Febuary,he might be able to change it even though the vested interests in APC,National Assembly will fight tooth and nail to oppose it.

          • Otile

            No my brother, don’t try to sell me the virtues or lack thereof of Imam Buhari. Of the two I will choose Jona any day. When he was in power Imam mistreated my people. Nobody from my ethnic group worked in his cabinet, office or even dared to approach him. The first day he assumed power he captured our uncle Ekwueme and dragged him and other Igbo people to the maximum prison without any charge, but chauffeured his brother President Shagari home and fed him well. The other day I was very happy to learn from Buhari supporters that his daughter was married to an Igbo colonel from Anambra state, little did I know the minions sold me a dummy. I cannot support a man who hates me and my people. It is suicide.

            On the other hand Great Jona hates nobody. He tries to work in the interest of all. Not that he has gone out of his way to do anything extraordinary for me or my people but he has not treated us shabbily with disdain as others before him did. The man is doing a very good job but he has many detractors, people who want to dump and and replace him with a Fulani man. These people know that the Fulanis are bent on pillaging my region leaving us desolate. Great Jona is a good man. Support him, I will.

          • biodun

            If all u fight for is ur ethnicity,I pity ur condition.

          • Es3

            I’m convinced that you sure need to go back and check again what the politicians were arrested for first?!

            Then you can well come around again to explain to Nigerians why the arrest concentrated on politicians from the south of Nigeria and also why they (southern politicians) were kept and tortured for so long under Buhari when the few arrested from the north with them had since been “freed”???!

          • Es3

            And with this knowledge at your disposal, would you earnestly look forward to seeing Buhari arrest and prosecute Amaechi, Tinubu, etc for corruption if he becomes president???!

          • biodun

            Pls can u tell me how many charges against Tinubu or Amaechi.unlike Fayose,Kashamu,FFK,Alli Modu Sherrif, Bode George,Alams and many more.Party of ex-convicts.

          • OGH

            I am a Nigerian and I do not know

      • herby

        What is needed in this case is fact to prove d allegation and not fact to disprove what hasn’t been proved yet. Haven’t u heard that talk is cheap? The talker should always be ready to show proof to convince us otherwise it is only feeble minded persons that would keep believing.

        • 247don007

          I am from Rivers State & I know the truth about this accusation. At the moment, there are multiple proofs already circulating the web. Google can help you with some.

  • MrFesh+Ifebuche+Paschal

    Hm. Just passing.
    Up AFeeCee. Up Progressives.

  • OJOGBON

    All this are allegations…when we talk abt allegations we need evidence beyond reasonable doubt…he jst trying to pull him down

  • Es3

    For Nigerians that see Amaechi as their god, please note that this is coming from Amaechi’s ‘skin-close’ friend and inner of the inner caucus!!!

    • AMADI ANYI

      Please my fellow RIVERS BROTHERS,what ever you have decided or whom you want to work with/for,”think of tomorrow and the future of RIVERS STATE”.The question is who are you voting for,is it the party(PDP,APC,LP …)OR the individual.please we should all think twice.

      • Es3

        Quite thoughtful and timely for Rivers State people!!!

        At the end of it all, they will need to have their state back in peace?!

  • MushinSpeaks

    Rather than tell the people what they intend to do; they demonize and attack their opponents. This will surely not help them but further garner votes for the APC in the state.

  • Preco01

    Let this yeye man go and face his problem (WIKE) who drove him away from PDP

  • Man_Enough

    during the just concluded dinner party, all pdp governors openly donated from their state’s treasuries without appropriation.

  • Cristus

    Buhari knows this is his last chance so he is ready to destroy everything if he can’t get it.

    I think we are likely to experience what happen in Egypt this year.

    Therefore, those APC fans that feel their lives are worthless and are ready to die should get ready. 2015 would surely be your year

  • Dada2014

    This is the same thing James Ibori, former Delta State Gov (1999 – 2007), did for Yar Adua in 2007 – cleaned out Delta State’s assets to bankroll the latter’s electioneering campaign. Something is seriously wrong with these SS Governors who think the people’s money belongs to them.

  • Chubike

    This is how to fight the government! Rather than organizing rallies to insult personalities, Issue based debates should be the battle field.
