Rivers State Government yesterday said it uncovered a plot by a faceless group to begin a campaign of calumny against Governor Nyesom Wike.
The governor and four of his colleagues, known as the G-5, have been demanding fairness in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
They are asking National Chairman Dr Iyorchia Ayu to resign because, according to them, it was agreed that he would step down if Atiku Abubakar, also a northerner, becomes the party’s presidential candidate.
Rivers Commissioner for Information and Communications, Chris Finebone, said the government obtained an unsigned document containing the plot to blackmail Wike.
“This is the evidence of the plot to blackmail Governor Wike. This is the document and it is titled, ‘proposal with hashtag, to end Wike rascality programme,” he said, displaying a paper.
