Nyesom Wike, Governor of Rivers State, has reacted to reports makings the rounds that he allegedly gave Akpo Bomba Yeeh, the deputy governorship candidate of African Action Congress (AAC), N200m in order to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Edujandon.com had reported that Akpo Bomba Yeah announced his resignation from the AAC and defection to the Peoples Democratic Party.
In a letter addressed to his Governorship candidate of AAC in Rivers state, Biopkomabo Awara, Yeah said his resignation from the party was informed by alleged hijack of the party’s structure by the All Progressives Congress in the state.
However, Speaking through Emma Okah, his Commissioner for Information and Communications, in a statement, Wike denied giving Yeeh N200million to defect to the PDP.
The statement read: “The allegation that Governor Wike gave AAC’s deputy governorship candidate (Yeeh) N200million is not correct; it is untrue and it is absolute nonsense.
“Chief Yeeh is a respected elder from Ogoni Kingdom and his action by removing himself from being used to destabilise Rivers State and cause pain to the people is commendable.
“Everything is not about money, as there are lots of good people around. We should commend him (Yeeh) for taking the bold and historic step, instead of calling him names.
“Future generations of our people will remember the moral lesson of his present actions.”
