In the report which was made by Channels Television on Wednesday August 23, the former Rivers State governor said – “We are now going to the office to have a direct report from each of the departments, but I have seen what is going on in the social media; how you (FCTA Permanent Secretary) bought a bulletproof car of N300m that I am using.

“So, I want you people to go hit your hand there (on the car) and see whether it is a treated car. With all due respect, people should be careful not to destroy other people.”

He said that when he assumed office, the Permanent Secretary said that they have a car for him, and showed him the car.
