Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Sen Iyorchia Ayu, collected N1 billion naira from one of the party’s presidential aspirants.
Speaking during his ongoing media chat in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State Governor said Ayu had the opportunity to challenge him on the allegation.
He said: “I will mention names, will he deny the fact that he did not collect N1 billion in Lagos?
“He met with a presidential aspirant and told him that he is not sure the governors are ready to sponsor the party. He collected N1 billion, I can tell you the names of businessmen at the meeting. Let him challenge me and I will mention the names.
“That money didn’t enter PDP’s account but we are not saying he should leave because of that.”
