Bwala Daniel, the official spokesman for the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign council, recently urged the people of Rivers State to vote carefully. This comes after an allegation was made that the Governor of the state, Nyesom Wike, spends 50 million Naira on alcohol every week.
Bwala's tweet suggests that if the allegation is true, then voting for Wike's candidate would mean supporting and maintaining his extravagant lifestyle. This could potentially lead to disastrous consequences for Rivers State.
The allegation against Governor Wike was initially made by his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi. Amaechi had called Wike a 'child' after the latter commented on the properties abandoned by Igbo people in Rivers State during the Biafran War.
Amaechi dismissed Wike's claims and accused him of consuming 50 million Naira worth of alcohol every week. Amaechi also denied saying that the APC gubernatorial candidate would return the abandoned properties to the Igbo people.
Bwala's comments have sparked mixed reactions on social media. His statement suggests that the people of Rivers State should consider the implications of voting for a candidate who allegedly spends such a large amount of money on alcohol.
By urging people to vote wisely, Bwala is implying that they should choose a candidate who would prioritize the development of Rivers State over their personal luxuries.
