"I am not corrupt and I don't like money" - Rotimi Amaechi
The current Minister of Transportation and the immediate past Rivers State’ governor, Rotimi Amaechi, uttered the statement in a Channels TV interview.

Speaking in the interview, When the Minister was asked whether he is corrupt, Amaechi responding by saying:

“Is my honesty in doubt? I have told Nigerians and I repeat to Nigerians today I am not corrupt and I don’t like money.

“I am not one swayed by money. I have lived a character that most Nigerians can tell you. 

“I try as much as possible not to annoy God by saying I am honest. But with all modesty, I am a honest Nigerian and there are very few honest Nigerians.”

When asked why people have the impression that he’s corrupt, he responded;

“When did that impression start?

“Nyesom Wike becomes the governor. He takes documents from Government house that people cant read, and says oh, we sold Gas turbines and disappeared with the money.

“He set up a panel of inquiry? Publish the report.”

When Amaechi was asked if he thinks the notion about his corruption came to light because he championed the 2015 campaign organization of President Buhari.

“When you talk about the PDP angle, they are bitter that we fought and led the movement against the former government and PDP, and we were successful to have removed them from power.

“If I was corrupt, why didn’t President Goodluck prosecute me?

“The fight between Goodluck and Rivers state government or myself lasted for two years,” said Amaechi.
