You cannot be giving our financial transactions to the EFCC, because that is illegal. Unless the EFCC sets aside the judgment, they have no powers to look into our financial transactions. Not that we are afraid, but due process must be followed"Governor Wike saysHe said that if Zenith Bank refuses to obey the Court Judgment, Rivers State Government will be compelled to file the necessary processes to ensure the right thing is done. The post EFCC lacks the power to investigate Rivers state government- Gov Wike declares appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
