The immediate past governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, during the Ministerial screening on Thursday made a statement many Nigerians dispute.

He made this known when told to clear his name of corrupt dealings; the ex-Rivers state governor says “I have never collected a bribe in my life.”

Amaechi is widely perceived in Nigeria to be among the caucus of politicians who are notoriously corrupt and loot the country’s treasury indiscriminately
