Wike, during a thanksgiving service in Port Harcourt last Sunday, accused Tonye Cole of $50M and asked him to explain how his firm (Sahara Energy) allegedly received the said sum from the Rivers State Government during the administration of Amaechi.
Meanwhile the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Rivers State, Tonye Cole, has debunked Governor Nyesom Wike’s allegation that $50m was transferred to his account by former Governor Rotimi Amaechi for private business purposes.
In defense, Cole explained that there was nothing to say about Wike’s allegation because the contracts and all the documents could be accessed by members of the public through Freedom of Information Act (FOI).
In his words: “This is an issue that is in the public domain. In other words, you all have the FOI bill. The contracts and all the documents are available for everybody to go and take a look at.
