Amaechi fires back: Wike also corrupt, I won’t appear before his commission

Former Governor of Rivers State, Gov. Amaechi spoke, yesterday, in Port Harcourt, while addressing loyalists of the All Progressives Congress, APC that he was in the Rivers State capital  to quietly attend a church program and will leave same day, adding that he had clear documents pointing at the alleged corruption acts of Governor Wike.

Amaechi vowed never to appear before  the Justice  George Omereji Commission of Inquiry investigating alleged sale of  the  assets of the state by his government, insisting that the establishment of the commission did not comply with constitutional provisions, that he will only appear before a properly constituted commission in the state.
He said:
“I have been listening while in Abuja to  Nyesom  Wike accusing me of corruption and I laugh. Even Nyesom Wike knows that I don’t like money, he knows that”.
“The pressure Wike is putting on us  is to  let somebody call us together to a meeting to withdraw our case  challenging his election from court.. The party has a right to go to court. The law of Nigeria says there is no independent candidate. Even if I, Amaechi, Peterside withdraw, APC will carry on with the case.
“The funny thing about the young man is that he knows I know him. I was his governor, I have documents to show that he is a contractor. I am not a thief; so I don’t know what this young man is talking about.”
The former governor, who accused INEC, SSS, Army and militants of  conniving to rob the APC of victory in the last gubernatorial election  in the state, said he and his party will continue to fight until they get justice from the court.
