According to 36Naija News, the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has blasted his Kano State counterpart, Abdullahi Ganduje, for threatening to sue him over the reported demolition of the Rainbow Town Central Mosque in Trans-Amadi area of Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital.
Gov. Wike received serious backlash during the week after the rumours that claim he demolished a mosque went viral. However, Wike has since denied the claim.
In a statement released today, Kano state Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje vowed to drag Governor Nyesom Wike to court over the alleged demolition of the mosque.
While reacting to Ganduje’s threat, Governor Wike made a statement which was released by his media aide, Simeon Nwakaudu. The statement said the Kano state governor should be reminded that he, Wike, is not a dollar bill Ganduje can pocket” sheepishly and recklessly”.
Recall that Gov. Ganduje was involved in a bribery scandal in 2018 after a video of him purportedly receiving wads of dollar bills from contractors in Kano state surfaced online.
