The Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike has alleged that the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Iyorchia Ayu is building a private university in Benue State.
According to him, Ayu has embarked on such a huge project within one year in office as the PDP national Chairman.
The governor, made this allegation at the 2022 Rivers State PDP campaign flag-off and unveiling of the party’s governorship candidate, Sim Fubara, at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt, the state capital on Saturday.
Wike asked Ayu to sue him if the revelation was false, adding that he is corrupt and lacked the moral rectitude to lead him and the Rivers people to any campaign.
He also accused Ayu of taking one billion naira, N100 million and the money the PDP raised during primaries and wondering what he would do if he entered office.
Meanwhile, Wike had said the people of Rivers State are hurt because of the injustice being meted out to the state.
“I repeat it that Ayu is very corrupt. A corrupt man cannot lead me and cannot lead my state to campaign,” Wike stated.
Wike alongside other G5 governors has been at loggerheads with Ayu and the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The aggrieved PDP governors are calling for the resignation or removal of Ayu as a condition to support Atiku’s presidential ambition.
