Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, has challenged the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to reveal the names of governors who are stealing local government funds.
According to The Channels, He said this on Friday during the inauguration of the Mgbuosimini Internal Roads in Rivers State.
PREMIUM POLITICS had reported that Buhari stated that there are some governors who are diverting public funds for personal use.
Wike while reacting to this on Friday said that the President should reveal the names of the governors while also adding that he has never used public funds for personal use.
He said, “I want to challenge Mr. President, Mr. President you are a leader and we believe as leaders you must come out and tell Nigerians, who are those committing this offence? You said the governors are taking local government funds, I want to say in the name of Almighty God I have never touched local government funds one day, I have never and I have no reason to do that.”
“So Mr. President who are those people? You know them, tell us. It is not good to say what you call class defamation, you say, governors, please I am not one of those governors, so Mr. President please spare me, tell Nigerians that the Integrity governors are not part of them, we have integrity, we are not part of them,” Wike said.
