Former National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, Uche Secondus has called Gov. Nyesom Wike a liar over claims by the latter that he was given numerous contracts by the state government.
Secondus, in a chat with Punch said he has never been a contractor, and has never received any contract from the state government.
He stated that it was wrong to make such weighty allegations without evidence.
Part of his statement reads,
I have never been a contractor. I did not collect or bid for any contract in Rivers State or from his Government as alleged by the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike.
It is wrong of him to make such weighty allegations without any evidence. Let him do his investigation and go to the Corporate Affairs Commission to get the details of the companies he has given contracts to or those that the state gave contracts. I am not one of them.
With his status, it is wrong for him to buy airtime from television stations and be dishing out outright lies and half-truths. Is he the owner of Julius Berger, which has done so well in the state by executing contracts running into hundreds of billions of naira?
