As Nigeria prepares for the 2023 presidential election, Hon. Chinyere Igwe, a member of the River State House of Representatives for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), allegedly revealed what he planned to do with the money discovered in his car by police officers in the early hours of Friday morning.
According to credible media reports, the PDP chieftain told the Rivers State Police Command that the $498,100 found in his possession would be used to support the People's Democratic Party in the upcoming election.
Remember that Hon. Igwe Chinyere was also arrested with a list of how the money would be distributed.
However, the lawmaker stated that he received the money the same day he was arrested, while also claiming that the money was given to him for disbursement by the party system.
Chinyere Igwe, disclosing what the money found in his possession is meant for, said, "The money is what we will use to support our party in this election, and it was given to me by the party system."
