Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers has accused the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, of being corrupt.
Specifically, Wike accused Ayu of collecting N1 billion in Lagos.
The governor spoke on Friday in Port Harcourt during a live interview programme.
His words: “Ayu is corrupt. Quote me. I am a lawyer and I am the governor of Rivers State. Ayu collected N1 billion in Lagos.
“He told one of the PDP presidential aspirants before the primaries that the governors were not ready to fund the party.
“I know how the money was arranged and those involved in packaging the money. He collected the N1 billion. Let him come out to tell Nigerians it is not true and I will reveal more.”
Wike, who was one of the presidential aspirants, stated that Ayu manipulated the process.
The governor accused the national chairman of lobbying other presidential aspirants to step down for the eventual winner, Atiku Abubakar.
Wike stated that the opposition PDP is not serious to win the 2023 Presidency with its arrogance.
