Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has accused governor members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) of corruption.

Wike also criticized the APC governors who visited the state to campaign for the party ahead of the rerun elections in the state.

“These APC governors who came to Rivers State are examples of failed governance . Benue State Governor , Samuel Ortom is owing workers for one year. Plateau State Governor , Simon Lalong is owing 13 months, Bauchi State Governor has refused to pay workers for 14 months,” he said on Thursday, December 8.

“Is that what they want to export to Rivers State. They should keep their non-payment of salaries. We are up to date in terms of payment of salaries. Our people are enjoying quality projects. I have not heard any of them commissioning projects.

“In Benue State, Fulani people are killing them everyday. Governor Ortom is too scared to defend his people and he is here to campaign. These APC governors are beneficiaries of Amaechi’s corruption. Amaechi stole our resources and used the funds to sponsor Lalong, Abubakar of Bauchi State, Ortom of Benue State and the APC National Campaigns,” he added.

Wike also accused the APC of plotting to rig the elections which will hold on December 10.
