Governor Nyesom Wike has alleged that the Niger Delta Development Commission earmarked N10m to fight him during the 2019 governorship election in the state.

Governor Wike who appeared on a live television programme said the commission has become a cash cow for politicians.


He wondered why only the current Interim Management Committee was being probed leaving out other managements who had led the commission in the past.


The Governor also noted that he is the only Governor who has challenged the commission over the practice of carrying out a project in a Niger Delta state without the permission of the state government.


Governor Wike also expressed doubt over the ability of the Independent National Electoral Commission to conduct free and fair elections in Edo state.
