A pro-Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) group on the platform of Rivers State Democracy Sustainable Group (RSDSG) has challenged the Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike, to give account of all his recent monetary gifts to his political allies.
The group queried if the monies were presented to the Rivers state House of Assembly and approved by the lawmakers as party of budgetary allocation.
In a statement signed on Monday, November 7 in Abuja by its convener, Justin Chibuike, the group alleged that from 2015 till date Governor Wike has received trillions of naira from various sources but has not spent one third of these Rivers owned resources.
“The party in its wisdom settled for the former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar for their best interest but the governor has gone rogue against the party and the presidential candidate.
“We have realised that the courage to fight an unknown battle has been fully funded by the purse of Rivers state.
“The governor in his bid to service the loyalty of the characters masquerading as fighters for justice in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has resulted to throwing Rivers resources into the bellies of the fishes acting as militants in the PDP.
“Further more, the governor of the state should explain to Rivers people if the monies that he doles out frequently to forces outside Rivers state are duly captured and approved by the Rivers state House of Assembly in the yearly budgets of the state.
“Rivers people are tired and can’t continue in this charade of the governor in his utter wastage that has continually underdeveloped the state in times.”
While demanding for justice on behalf of the Rivers people, the organisation added:
“As a group we are asking the state governor who is demanding for justice in the party to first serve justice to Rivers people because charity begins at home. He must explain to us for posterity sake. Good men can no longer remain silent in times like this.”
Edujandon.com had earlier reported that the Rivers state government has revoked the Certificate of Occupancy of land allocated to Senator Lee Maeba at the Golf Course axis of old Government Reserved Area in Port Harcourt. Senator Maeba, a staunch supporter of Atiku is the chairman of the party’s presidential campaign council in Rivers state.
Maeba, a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Reps, Austin Opara, former governor, Celestine Omehia and a member of the House of Reps, Hon. Chinyere Igwe, fell out of favour with Governor Wike after they visited Atiku soon after his emergence as the PDP presidential candidate.
In a related development, as preparations for the 2023 general elections gain momentum, the demands for bullet-proof Sports Utility Vehicles have increased significantly across the country. Very Important Personalities, top chieftains and candidates of political parties have been procuring customised vehicles that offer special protection in the run-up to the campaigns and elections. Apart from ordering armoured vehicles, it was also learnt that politicians were applying for special police protection and procuring other security wares.
