Reacting to the allegation of bribing the deputy governorship candidate of African Action Congress (AAC) Akpo Bomba Yeeh to defect to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, the governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike has urged the entire public to disregard the false report.
It was alleged that the governor gave Yeeh a total sum of N200 million to join the PDP, however, Nyesom who debunked the report said the information is not correct; it is untrue and it is absolute nonsense.
He made this known through his Commissioner for Information and Communications, Emeka Okah.
The statement read: “The allegation that Governor Wike gave AAC’s deputy governorship candidate, Akpo Yeeh, N200million is not correct; it is untrue and it is absolute nonsense.
“Chief Yeeh is a respected elder from Ogoni Kingdom and his action by removing himself from being used to destabilise Rivers State and cause pain to the people is commendable.
“Everything is not about money, as there are lots of good people around. We should commend him (Yeeh) for taking the bold and historic step, instead of calling him names.
“Future generations of our people will remember the moral lesson of his present actions.”
