Governor Nyesom Wike and Governor Godwin Obaseki

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has stated that Governor Godwin Obaseki’s revelation that the Federal Government printed N60billion to share in March cannot be regarded as spurious.

Wike who spoke while briefing journalists in Abuja on Sunday challenged the CBN to unequivocally declare if the money was printed or not.

“Obaseki was in APC, so he understands them. So, Obaseki couldn’t have come from the blues to say they printed N60 billion. He knows them,” he stated.

Governor Wike further expressed sadness that the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Obaseki, instead of addressing the issue, opted to issue threat to states to pay back bailout loan given to them by the Federal Government.

He said, “Instead of answering the question, he (Emefiele) said governors have to pay back the bailout loan. The bailout is a loan, if you want to take it, go and take it. But answer the question whether money was printed or not printed.”
