Gov. Nyesom Wike is under fire for giving SUV to Senate Magnus Abe and others

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has come under fire for giving 16 Sports Utility Vehicles, SUVs, to Senator Magnus Abe and other National assembly members from the State.

Some Nigerians on social media berated the governor’s action, describing it as wasteful and misplaced priority despite owing salaries in the state.

Some reminded him of his statement that the state has no money to pay students’ scholarship abroad, yet had money to buy exotic cars.

Recall that students under the overseas scholarship of the Rivers state Sustainable Development Agency, RSSDA staged a protest lamenting non payment of fees by Governor Nyesom Wike

Here are some comments:
