Ngwuta’s Allegation, Unadulterated Fallacy — Amaechi

Amaechi, in his response to the latest allegation on Thursday, described the allegation against him by Justice Ngwuta as pure fiction.

He stated this in a statement he personally signed in Abuja on Thursday.

Amaechi said that he did not and had never tried to lobby, induce or make Justice Ngwuta to influence the outcome of any matter before the Supreme Court or any other court.

He said, “The Hon. Justice Ngwuta’s narrative as it concerns me is simply not true, an unadulterated fallacy, designed to deceive and distract from the real issues of DSS investigation of acts of corruption against him.

“It’s indeed very sad and most unfortunate that the Hon. Justice Ngwuta had decided to drag the name of the Honourable Chief Justice of Nigeria into his fabricated allegations.”

The former governor insisted that he did not and had never lobbied, approached or attempted to make the CJN or any other Justice of the apex court to influence the Supreme Court judgments on the Rivers State and Ekiti State governorship elections appeals or any other matter before the apex court or any other court.

He lamented that within a space of 48 hours, he had observed a carefully planned and coordinated political attempt to drag him into the DSS arrest and investigation of judges in Nigeria.

“The aim of the plot is two-fold: to smear and politically destroy the image and reputation of Amaechi, and deceitfully portray me as the person behind the arrest of judges. This is indeed most ridiculous and callous,” he added.
