The Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, and former Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, have sparked mixed reactions online, over the cost of whiskey spotted on their table.
Rant HQ recall that the immediate-past Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi had alleged that Wike spends N50 million from the state resources on alcohol every week.
The former governor of Rivers described his successor as a drunkard, who should not be allowed to waste taxpayers’ money on frivolities.
Amaechi said the amount of money Wike spends on alcohol in two weeks, is almost equivalent to the amount he spent to build one primary school when he served as governor.
In the photo making the rounds online, Wike and Fayose were spotted consuming a drink said to be worth about five million Naira.
While some slammed them over the frivolous drink, others claimed they can afford it considering their status.
