Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has reiterated that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has no powers to investigate the financial transactions of Rivers State Government.

He said that before EFCC can investigate the Rivers State Government it must first vacate the Federal High Court judgment that declared that it cannot investigate the financial transactions of the Rivers State Government.

He spoke on Thursday during a Courtesy Visit by the Group Managing Director Designate of Zenith Bank Plc, Mr Ebenezer Onyeagwu.

“EFCC has no powers to look into our financial transactions. You cannot be giving our financial transactions to the EFCC, because that is illegal. Unless the EFCC sets aside the judgment, they have no powers to look into our financial transactions. Not that we are afraid, but due process must be followed”Governor Wike says

He said that if Zenith Bank refuses to obey the Court Judgment, Rivers State Government will be compelled to file the necessary processes to ensure the right thing is done.
