The All Progressives Congress in Rivers State has criticised Governor Nyesom Wike for donating N200m to those displaced as a result of attacks by herdsmen in Benue. The State APC Publicity Secretary, Mr. Chris Finebone, said it was shocking that Wike donated money to Benue IDPs while nothing has been done for victims of killings in Rivers State.
“The APC is shocked to know that whereas victims of killings and criminality in various parts of Rivers State are licking their wounds and wondering where help will come from, the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has gone to visit and donate N200 million of Rivers State to victims of killings in Benue State.
“We recall that beyond highly politicised … visits to Omoku recently, Gov. Nyesom Wike has completely ignored killings in various parts of Rivers State, especially in the local government area of his PDP national chairman, Andoni.
