    Whose money is Nyesom Wike Mugabe pledging? Another indication of him robbing the state naked.

        Nyesom Wike Mugabe’s apologist: you are right about one thing — your Oga has been stealing “…your papa [the people’s money]…” since his days as the motor park tout-in-chief. Except now, he has an ally in the person of Raphael Nyekwere [AKA Emma W. I. Okah] and sea urchins like you. I would like to think and conclude that you are not DUMB — please, focus on facts and be seen as one on truth-path always!!!!!

    Its only in the Zoo that a civil servant , President, governor will make pledges of this kinds. Where do they get the money for that ? States money ? or personal money, just tell me. Can such thing happen in germany, Usa ,France and etc. Just in the Zoo still people don’t care rather say it doesn’t matter.Shame

    • charlieakpeumoh

      Yes, the real Zoo is where you live in Ajegunle, Lagos – to run your local cyber crime network!!! One of these days, your luck will certainly run out; that is when Nemesis has caught up with you and your gang. Gbam! Then you will pack your “Zoo” into Kirikiri!

        This guy you are a joke,honestly you got no point in your comment .I tried to know what your points are but can’t get it though so you got nothing upstairs and shut up .Reasonable people are making point and you start talking rubish.What people are saying is that in the modern world a governor got no right to make donation of any kind on his own rather should come from the state not on his name while a lot of people can’t be sure of a day meal .People are asking where do the money coming from $20.000 each,do you know what is it if you convert it to naira?still some workers are still being owed.That is the point people are making then you go on insulting them, Just look at yourself in the mirrow,what do you see? shame

    Where is this man going to get this money from?Can he spend his personal money like that.?$20000.00 X 18 players that amounts to $360,000.This man should be probed immediately.In naira this amount to #81,000,000.00.eighty one million naira.This is the governor rivers people are clapping for. your money will be squandered by this Wicked Wike

    • charlieakpeumoh

      If your “change”-Master, PMB had promised them that money, then there would be no noise on this medium; and all of you will hail it as the right thing to do! Have you ever contributed to the cost of governance in Nigeria? Do you even pay your tax – as of when due? Do you know how much it cost to accomodate all the Eagles’ team plus officials in the Rivers State? If you should be ask to contribute money for the upkeep of the Super Eagles, would you also contribute – even one Kobo? It is well; time will tell!

        I can now understand why impunity reigns in your state.Your intellect level is very low.Wike can get away with anything since your state is full of people like you.

        • Ikwerre

          Right on Tunde — the guy is a sick Nyesom Wike Mugabe’s puppet.

    • FirecloudOFGOD

      Why don’t people spend time to read unless yours is an issue of understanding! Read the text again @tunde008. It clearly states that: “Nyesom Wike has promised the Super Eagles a sum of $20,000 for every goal scored in tomorrow’s match against Swaziland.”

      Unless you are presuming each player will score 18 goals!
