Wike Is Very Corrupt, I Won’t Appear Before His C’ssion – Amaechi Fires Back

AMAECHIImmediate-past governor of Rivers State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi has accused his successor, Mr Nyesom Wike who is probing him for corruption as very corrupt.

The former governor told loyalists of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Port Harcourt that he had clear documents pointing at the corrupt acts of the governor.
Amaechi said he was in the Rivers State capital to quietly attend a church programme and will leave the same day.
Amaechi vowed never to appear before the Justice George Omereji Commission of Inquiry investigating sale of the assets of the state by his government, insisting that the establishment of the commission did not comply with constitutional provisions.

On the contrary, the former governor said he will appear before any properly constituted commission in the state.

“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,” he stated.

“The pressure Wike is putting on us is to let somebody to 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 and 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 said he had only one local bank account since he became governor.

According to him, he never handled any contract while he was governor.

The former governor, who accused INEC, SSS, Army and militants of conniving to rob 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 tribunal.
