ver Less Than 50% Votes And See Trouble, Wike Threatens Council Chairman


 

Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has warned Hope Ikiriko, the executive chairman of the state’s Ahoada East Local Government Area, to make sure he gives the People’s Democratic Party at least 50% of the LGA’s total votes.

If the council chairman achieves anything less than 50%, the governor warned, he will “be in danger.”

On Thursday, Wike made the threat as he launched a local government road project.

The Governor’s threat followed a request by the council boss to Wike to construct a road in ward 10 which infuriated the governor.

Wike berated the council chairman for making such demands despite receiving nothing less than N300 million naira in allocation in the last few months.

He said:-

“I know how much you people get. In the last few months, no local government got less than N300, 000,000 to N400,000,000, not one. What’s the salary bill? Where did the money go to?

“How many votes do you bring? Last election, 10,000 to 13,000 votes and you come here to tell me Ward 10 does not have roads.

“Ahoada East registered nothing less than 90,000 voters, let me see anything less than half of those votes then you will come and give an account of your projects.

“If I see anything less than 50% of the votes, you will be into trouble.

“Return votes based on the number of projects”.
