How Amaechi was offered N1 billion as governor but he rejected the bribe – Igwe

Dr. Uche Igwe, a political risk analyst, and associate of Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has said that the Minister of Transportation is a man committed to delivering quality service yet he is highly misunderstood.

He made the statement in an interview on Skytrend TV while speaking on the former Rivers State governor’s rumoured presidential ambition.

“He is someone I believe is highly misunderstood. He is a compassionate person who is very impatient with mediocrity. So, sometimes he will have to respond as though he is arrogant, but when you look, you’ll see a very compassionate, respectable individual who respects his elders, his associates, and even his friends,” he said.

Igwe, who is a member of the Ohaneze Ndigbo think tank on 2023 Igbo presidency also spoke on the comments Amaechi made two years ago where he said that he doesn’t like money.

He recounted a time that Amaechi rejected N1 billion bribe from a contractor while he was still a sitting governor.
