He said the Senator came to him, threatening to leave PDP, and when asked what he wanted, he said he needs funds.
Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has called a governorship candidate in Abia State.
An angry Wike said the governorship candidate doesn’t have integrity because after collecting money from him, he dumped the party.
He urged people of Abia not to vote for the candidate.
Even though he didn’t mention the person’s name, many people have alleged he could be referring to Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe who dumped the party for APGA in May.
Abaribe is contesting to be governor of the state.
Wike in a video circulating on social media said Abairbe is not a man of integrity.
According to Wike, the Senator came to him, threatening to leave PDP, and when asked what he wanted, he said he needs funds.
Speaking at the flag-off of the Abia governorship campaign and other elective positions in Umuahia on Thursday, Wike who came along with members of his G-5, popularly known as Integrity Governors urged the people of Abia South not to vote for the Senator again, saying a person who lacks integrity cannot represent a people.
Dressed in his traditional ishiagu attire and red cap, Wike said, “Today we commissioned a road in Obingwa local government and I am sure that person is from Obingwa local government.
“I don’t want to tell you what I did, he promised me that he will not leave PDP, and I came and told your governor, your brother said he will not leave PDP.
“And I said, what do we do, he said he needs some money, we gave him the money today, three days time, he left the PDP. Do they have integrity?”
