Revelation of how Wike allegedly bribed AAC candidate in Rivers exposed

The Governorship candidate of the African Action Congress, AAC, Biokpomabo Awara has accused his running mate, Chief Akpo Bomba Yeeh of collecting bribe from Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike.

He also alleged threats to his life.

According to him, Yeeh who announced his resignation from the AAC and his defection to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP on Monday was bribed N200 million by the state governor.

“I have not received any resignation letter from my deputy. Christians the world over believe in fair play but Wike’s actions and reactions cast serious doubts on his sense of morality.

“Wike had earlier said the AAC was not a party to reckon with. It is shocking he could shamelessly use public funds meant for the development of Rivers State to shop for deputy governorship candidates of opposition parties.

“The same Rivers governor had earlier bought off the deputy governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Rivers State, despite existing provisions, which clearly show that deputies are part owners of joint tickets, who cannot be easily separated from their candidates, once they have appeared on the ballot.

“Despite the antics of Wike, Rivers people have obviously taken the position that the outgoing governor can no longer lead them.

“I won the March 9 governorship election. Whatever INEC plans to do, the Rivers people will resist attempts to steal their mandate.”

INEC had suspended the elections in Rivers State after violence broke out in some collation centres.

The election though between the PDP and AAC is principally a supremacy battle between incumbent Governor Wike and his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi.

It will be recalled that the Supreme Court had upheld the earlier ruling of a Federal High Court barring the APC from fielding candidate in Rivers state for the governorship, National and State Assembly elections.

Amaechi had therefore on the eve of the March 9 governorship election thrown his weight behind the AAC guber candidate.

He therefore asked all members and supporters of the APC to vote Awara.
