Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for the resignation of Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation over corruption allegation leveled against him by embattled two Justices of the Supreme Court.
Justice Okoro Inyang and Justice Sylvester Ngwuta both of the Supreme Court had fingered Amaechi in an alleged bribery and corruption scandal.

“President Mohammadu Buhari now the moral burden to let Nigerians know if he is truly fighting corruption.
“If the President knows he’s not shielding corrupt officials especially those who have embezzled fund meant for Rivers state.
“We as a party are asking Amaechi to resign so that he can be properly investigated. We are asking President Mohammadu Buhari to please do the needful for Nigerians”.
