Nigerians wondered how someone declared wanted for alleged N117 billion fraud could be chosen to be PDP's candidate.
Nigerians have taken to social media to fume after Governor Nyesom Wike’s accountant-general, Similayi Fubara emerged as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 general elections even after being declared wanted by the EFCC.
He is accused of looting N117 Billion.
Fubara was picked by 721 delegates on Wednesday night to fly the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship flag for 2023.
However, this has not gone down well with Nigerians who wondered how someone declared wanted for alleged N117 billion fraud, alleged criminal conspiracy, money laundering, misappropriation of public funds, and abuse of office could be chosen to be PDP's candidate.
