GOV. WIKE DIVERTING WORKERS’ SALARIES TO FUND PDP NATIONAL CONVENTION: RIVERS APC YOUTH LEAGUE



The APC Youth League, Rivers Coordinate has declared that it can no longer ignore the cries and lamentations of thousands of civil servants and pensioners in the State whose salaries have been diverted by Gov. Wike to fund the PDP and its upcoming PDP National Convention in Rivers State.



Press statement released by the state coordinate reads :

"Today, workers in Rivers State are going through untold hardship inflicted on them as they have not received their salaries for over three months. We note that Gov. Wike is using the arbitrary diversion of workers’ salaries to fund the PDP and build a political war chest towards his highly speculated godfather role in the PDP. Gov. Wike’s insensitivity and non-challant attitude to the cries of the workers in the State is callous, unfair and must be reprimanded.

Gov. Wike has also threatened the leadership of the NLC in the State if any attempt is made to lead any protest to demand for the payment of workers’ salaries, and is promoting the factionalization of the NLC to prevent workers from having a viable union that will protect their welfare and interest.

And we make bold to ask, where has workers’ salaries gone, if not for the hosting of the PDP National Convention in the State. This further confirms our fears and earlier alarm the Rivers resources are being sacrificed on the altar of personal ambition and lust for power by Gov. Nyesom Wike.
We call on Gov. Wike to be sympathetic to the plight of Rivers workers and pay the workers what is due them rather than using the workers’ salaries to fund the PDP."
