Patience Jonathan Receives $1 Million from Wike every Month -Rotimi Amaechi

Amaechi & Wike

Amaechi & Wike

Gov. Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers state has alleged that former Education Minister and Rivers state PDP Governorship aspirant, Nyesom Wike is  paying Patience Jonathan a monthly allowance of $1million for favors. Governor Amaechi made the allegation while speaking at a praise and worship session organised by the Ikwerre Youth Movement and Ikwerre Women Forum at Isiokpo, headquarters of the Ikwerre LoGA of the state on Saturday Match 21st.
“Do you know that the PDP governorship candidate, Nyesom Wike, has been giving one million dollars monthly to the wife of the President, Mrs Patience Jonathan? He has been doing this to gain political favour in the Presidency and to retain the favour”
But in a swift reaction, the spokesperson to Mr Wike, Simeon Nwakudu, said Governor Amaechi’s allegation is false and accused him of using Rivers state money to fund APC presidential candidate Gen Muhammadu Buhari.
“Our attention has been drawn to another desperate press statement issued by outgoing Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, where he falsely accused the Rivers PDP governorship candidate, Nyesom Wike, of paying the First Lady, Patience Jonathan, one million US Dollars monthly. This allegation is completely false and simply aimed at diverting the attention of the public from the monumental corruption under Amaechi’s leadership. Wike has always been an upright administrator and politician, who is committed to the development of Rivers State and Nigeria. Wike has published documents of mass corruption in Government House, Port House, and the entire Rivers State Government under the guidance of Amaechi. The outgoing governor should respond to these documentary proofs of corruption, rather than cooking up false allegations to distract attention. Amaechi has wasted over N3tn that have accrued to Rivers State, a large percentage of the funds being expended on the sponsorship of APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, and the APC.”
