Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has threatened to expose some persons who had surreptitiously stopped the release of loan from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to Abia and Benue States.

He stated that the motive was to punish Governor Samuel Ortom and Governor Okezie Ikpeazu for standing with him to demand the resignation of the National Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party(PDP), Iyorchia Ayu.

Wike spoke at the 58th birthday celebration of Ikpeazu in his country home of Umuobiakwa community in Obingwa Local Government Area.

This was contained in a statement issued by Media aide to Wike, Kelvin Ebiri, and made available to newsmen in Port Harcourt yesterday.

Wike, who was the special guest of honour at the event, was accompanied by former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose.

Wike further explained that the CBN loan was a facility that is made available to every state of the federation, pointing out that Rivers State Government had accessed and secured the loan already.

Wike, who restated his position on the internal crisis within the Peoples Democratic Party, said his allies demand was for inclusivity, wherein every region is given a sense of belonging.
