Governor Wike accuses CBN of playing politics with its agriculture development loans to states

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has alleged that the Central Bank of Nigeria is playing politics with its agriculture development loans to states.

Recounting how his state was denied of the loan by the apex bank while hosting the Minister of State for Agriculture and Rural Development Mustapha Shehuri on Monday March 15, Wike stated that it is wrong to play politics with a scheme that will enhance food security, create jobs and promote youth empowerment.

He said; 

We are among the states being denied access to loans meant for agriculture development.

“It is wrong to play politics with certain issues, we should be dispassionate in implementing this kind of programme.

“This is a scheme that will enhance food security, create jobs and promote youth empowerment.

“In an atmosphere devoid of politics, we should be working together, we need to benefit from this loan. “
