Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, of being very corrupt.
Wike stated this during a media chat with selected television stations on Friday.
Wike said Ayu collected N1 billion from a presidential candidate.
According to Wike, “Ayu is very corrupt. He cannot deny the fact that he is very corrupt.
“Ayu collected N1 billion from Lagos. He collected 1bn from a presidential candidate and if he denies it, I will name who gave him the money.
“Ayu met one of the presidential candidates and told him he doesn’t think the governors were ready to sponsor the party’s convention and he was given N1 billion.
“That money is not in the party’s coffers. I can tell you the name of the businessmen who were present when he collected the money.”
