Wike paid $1 million for the smear campaign against military – group.
The Coalition for Change and Transparency (CCT) has alleged that Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, sponsored propaganda and fake news against the Nigeria Army during the governorship and state Assembly elections.
It noted that in a bid to undermine the military’s conduct at the polls, Governor Wike and his cohorts in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) resorted to cheap blackmail, going as far as bribing the UK Consulate with $1 million.
Addressing a press conference in Abuja yesterday, its President, Danesi Momoh, disclosed that Wike’s latest plot was not particularly strange, especially after his failed attempt to induce military personnel to rig the elections in PDP’s favor.
The coalition insisted that Wike’s motive was to manipulate the outcome of the elections and when he could not achieve that, he resorted to cheap propaganda.
