An indication that former governor Chibuike Amaechi may not appear before the Justice G Omereji commission established to probe his administration emerged yesterday as he doubted the ability of the body to be fair to him.

The commission which was set up by governor Nyesom Wike is expected to commence sitting today in Port Harcourt.

The former governor in a statement from his media office said governor Nyesom Wike had on several occasions publicly indicted him of corruption, stressing that there was no way a commission he established to probe him will come up with anything contrary.

Meantime, governor Wike in a quick response wondered why Amaechi was afraid of the commission, saying his media statements around the commission were ploy to put pressure on the government to halt the probe which he could not achieve through the court.

Wike who spoke through his media aide, Mr Opunabo Nko-Tariah said there would have been no need for a judicial probe if the governor had found him guilty of the allegations. He further advised the former governor to appear before the commission to prove his innocence rather than running to the media to seek how to stop the commission from going ahead with its job.
