PDP Crisis: Ayu blew N12.5B party funds in 2 mths - Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has accused the suspended National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Iyorcha Ayu of squandering N12.5billion funds of the party within two months.

Wike raised the allegation at the inauguration of internal roads in Rumuigbo, Obio-Akpor Local Government Area, Rivers state, saying that PDP would regain its force of dominance with Ayu off the driver's seat.

The governor claimed, "I believe we should have a strong leadership. I can't support people whose interest is only to amass money. I can't support people where we did congresses and raised about N12.5b and within two months, that money was gone. Somebody stayed in office for one year and he is building university. 

"I won't support such. That is why I am in support that Ayu must leave office if we want PDP to be strengthened. I owe no apology to anybody. I said it before, this is the final fight we will fight and we are going to win this fight."

Preempting the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) coming after him when his governorship ends, Wike bragged that the thought doesn't scare him because there is nothing to hide as his numerous projects delivered were evident of how accountable he deployed the state's resources.

Inaugurating the project, Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State commended Wike for achieving more projects for Rivers people, attributing the feat not entirely to too much money at the disposal of his Rivers counterpart, but to his commitment to the common good of Rivers people.

Mohammed acknowledged the political sagacity Wike demonstrated in ensuring PDP won the governorship, all State Assembly and three senatorial seats in Rivers and contributing significant votes for his preferred Southern president.
