THE Minister for Transport, Hon. Rotimi Amaechi has said that unproven allegations of corruption against by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) when he was Governor of Rivers State, put him into lots of suffering.

Amaechi stated this yesterday while delivering a lecture titled “Legislature and Executive Partnership for Effective Performance” at a retreat for the executive arm of Plateau State Government.

The retreat, which was organised in collaboration with Jos Business School and German International Corporation (GIZ), held at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru.

According to him, “I was harassed, though I fought my way through. They accused me of corruption; I suffered a lot; I suffered a lot about corruption. I don’t like money. I believe once you can feed, you don’t need money again. All those who accumulate are doing so to their detriment.”

On the relationship between the executive and legislature, the Minister said the success of any administration depends on the relationship between the two arms, adding that the commissioners are the drivers of the synergy and cordiality at the state level.
