Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has begged Federal Government to forgive Rivers state people for any wrong they did to warrant perceived federal neglect currently being suffered by the state.
The Governor, who spoke in Port Harcourt during the maiden delivery of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) to downstream investor, Stockgap Terminal by the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) Bonny, hghlighted some of the vexed issues of federal neglect.
“Because it’s Rivers, Federal Government has refused funding the Bodo-Bonny Highway even when NLNG has agreed to borne 50% of the (N120Billion) project cost.
“Even if Rivers has done anything wrong, please we are begging, forgive us, but I don’t think we have done anything wrong as Rivers people. Rivers is the better place to invest.
“We continue to support every investment brought here and the gratitude we get is that key investors are embracing our confidence to invest here while some people are de-marketing the state.”
