The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN) has mocked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the controversy surrounding a one billion naira loan.
Naija News reports that the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike had on Friday during a media chat with journalists, made claims that the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu received N1bn from a presidential aspirant in Lagos and another N100m from another party source.
Wike first made the allegation on September 23 and reiterated it on Friday, October 14.
However, both allegations were denied in a swift reaction by Ayu.
He however admitted that due to financial difficulties, former Vice-President and now the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, suggested that the party should take a loan of N1bn from the bank but that after deliberations, the National Working Committee rejected the idea.
He wrote, “Nigerians should see the same party that complains about the fact that we borrow in some cases to fund infrastructure.
