Wike planning to cede oil wells to Bayelsa –APC

Nyesom WikeThe All Progressives Congress in Rivers State on Thursday alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in the state, Mr. Nyesom Wike, planned to have some of the state’s oil wells ceded to Bayelsa, Akwa Ibom and Abia states if the PDP wins the April 11 election.

Making the allegation in a statement in Port Harcourt by its Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, APC said Wike planned to pay N1bn monthly to the First Lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, and some yet to be verified amount to 10 other chieftains of the PDP if elected into office.

The statement read, “This planned and unacceptable rape of Rivers State coffers, which was revealed to us by a patriotic Rivers State citizen, has made us even more resolved to prevent the emergence of a PDP-led government in our dear state.

“As a result, the APC has cut short its presidential victory celebration to step up its rescue mission to salvage the state from the misfortune that will befall it should PDP win the April 11 governorship election.”

But the PDP Publicity Secretary in the state, Mr. Samuel Nwanosike, described the APC’s allegation as false, adding that Wike did not need to pay anybody to win the governorship election.

Nwanosike said, “The APC in Rivers State is confused. The party has run out of ideas. The APC should stop dwelling on false allegations and face the task before it.”
