Nyesome Wike, Rivers state governor has alleged that the Federal government is planning to use a Lebanses man to frame him up.
While Speaking at a a thanksgiving Service in honour of the chairman of Rivers State Local Government Service Commission, Chief Azubuike Nmerukini at the St Thomas Anglican Church, Diobu yesterday June 10th, Governor Wike said he got information that the Federal government will ask the Lebanese man to say the governor contracted him to provide arms and ammunitions ahead of the 2019 election.
Governor Wike stated emphatically that he has not contracted anybody to do such and that when the frameup materializes, Nigerians should know he had spoken about it earlier.
”The Federal Government has arranged with a Lebanese to say that I told him to buy arms for the purpose of the forthcoming elections. I am not close to any Lebanese, let alone give money to anyone to buy arms for elections. We have dutifully served our people and we don’t need to purchase arms for elections. If elections are held 20,000 times, we will win because our projects have positively impacted the lives of our people.” he said
“They plan to cause so much crisis in the state so that Rivers election is held on a separate date. Their plot will fail . Rivers election will hold same day with that of other states.
