Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has described the allegations against him by the governorship candidate of African Action Congress (AAC) in Rivers, Biokpomabo Awara as baseless and lacking in merit.
Speaking last night through his Information & Communications Commissioner Emma Okah, who doubles as the Director of Information and Communications of the Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, the governor told Awara that governorship position was for mature minds.
He said that his AAC challenger lacked the experience required to steer the ship of a state.
He was quoted as saying: “I have seen and read a copy of the press conference and our conclusion is that the entire content is as worthless as the piece of paper bearing the speech and it would be worthless to offer him (Awara) a response.
“However, allegations of wrongdoing against Governor Wike and the PDP in the press conference are false, baseless and lacking in merit.”
Also responding, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Rivers state, Mr. Obo Effanga, also denied the allegation by the governorship candidate of AAC that Wike bought a house for him in Maitama, Abuja to support the governor’s re-election.
Effanga said through the telephone last night: “It is laughable. I do not know anything about it.”
Awara also alleged that Wike induced the Rivers Administrative Secretary of INEC, Elder Etim John, with N300 million, to deploy ad hoc staff that would support PDP during the March 9 governorship and House of Assembly elections.
John could not be reached on his mobile line yesterday.
