Former Rivers state governor and current minister of transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, has accused Justice Inyang Okoro of the Supreme Court of being childish.
He said the judge should not joke with the serious allegation leveled against him.
Amaechi was reacting to a statement by Justice Okoro in which he accused the minister of begging him to influence the outcome of the governorship election cases involving Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Abia states.
In a statement personally signed by the minister in Abuja on Wednesday, Amaechi says he is wondering how such a statement could come from the Judge as he has never had a discussion with any judge.
He added that those faced with serious allegations should treat the issue with the seriousness it deserves and stop trying to look for public sympathy.
