I’m not your problem, Okonjo-Iweala tells Amaechi

Minister of Finance Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has told Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi to look in the mirror, if he wants to identify the source of his problems.

Responding to the claims that she is responsible for the delay in the approval of the state’s water project by the African Development Bank, the minister yesterday fired back at the governor, saying that “it is sad that a governor can engage in this kind of undignified charade.

“The question that fair minded people must ask is Amaechi the only governor the ministry deals with? Why is he the only one negatively obsessed with Okonjo-Iweala?

“The ministry has a good relationship with many governors and deals with issues concerning their states based on professionalism and equity.”

The governor’s statement that she is responsible for the delay of the water project “is a complete fabrication.”

“As the ministry had previously explained, the project is going through the processes and must get final approval from the ADB board and the Federal Executive Council before I can sign it. So the idea that I have refused to sign it is preposterous and inaccurate.”
