Rivers State Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has appreciated President Muhammadu Buhari for graciously approving the refund of the sum of N78.9 billion to the Rivers State Government, as cost of execution of Federal Government’s road projects in the State.
The Governor also thanks the Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo and other members of the Federal Executive Council, for the support they provided to the request of Rivers State.
“Mr. President has by this remarkable and heartwarming gesture shown not only your love for the Government and people of Rivers State, but, also, demonstrated expressively that you are, indeed, a President for every State of the Federation and all Nigerians.
“I assure you that the Rivers State Government is willing and ever ready to cooperate and partner with the Federal Government to advance the developmental aspirations of Rivers State in particular and our nation in general,” Wike said.
He appealed to the President to kindly oblige the state Government with a State visit when invited, to see what they have accomplished for the State and their people with the money.
