Ex-Gov. Rotimi Amaechi : I’ve Never Taken A Bribe In My Life

Rotimi Amaechi, former governor of Rivers state, says he has never received bribe in his life.

Speaking at the senate during his screening on Thursday, Amaechi said: “If there is one man that doesn’t like corruption, I don’t like corruption”.

Gbenga Ashafa, a senator from Lagos state had asked Amaechi to clear the air on the allegation of corruption levelled against him.

“I brought all the copies of the panel and there is no where that I was indicted,” he said.

“Now, you have asked me to define corruption, corruption is difficult to define. It is a very wide concept. If, for example, you are a public officer and you don’t collect bribe, I have never taken bribe in my life, but if they send a girl to you and you sleep with the girl and do that favour, that means you are corrupt.

“But Nigerians don’t know that, they think that corruption is only when you collect bribe. Corruption is a very wide concept, very wide. If people are competing for a position and you offer your son, brother or sister an opportunity to hold that position when the person is not qualified, you are corrupt.”

  14. How he overcome? It is very simple , he did his underground work . No permanent friend or enemy in politics . They know themselves , don’t forget they are all corrupt . They have skeleton in their comp-board. you will see at the end Saraki will be free. He is in the party of the day . It is not new in Nigeria politics . Don’t forget all the money he stole was spent on Buhari and he risk his life during campaign , so they can’t say they don’t know him now. Party supremacy is what they are following and not constitution .
