Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has slammed Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, over comments the latter allegedly made during the campaign rally of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Ortom, who was among the notable figures at the campaign rally on Thursday, allegedly made distasteful remarks against the Governor Wike administration, the remarks which the Rivers Governor swiftly kicked against.
Wike, who reminded Ortom that he hasn’t been consistent with the payment of workers’ salaries in his state, added that the governor made a “busy-body trip to Rivers, abandoning all the rots he has created in Benue.”
“That one that cannot pay salaries to his workers for almost one year? That one that Fulani herdsmen have almost finished his people and he cannot do anything? Do you want to be like Benue? ” Wike queried.
