This is an extract from the statement released by Gov. Nyesom Wike,
Just this week, the President Muhammadu Buhari met with the governors of 19 northern states and they discussed how to stem the tide of insecurity in the region. Yet they were not denied projects.
For how long will Chibuike Amaechi
continue to de-market Rivers State. Was it insecurity that made him not to give the President Muhammadu Buhari 25 percent during the last elections?
You claim Rivers State is insecure, but you came to the state to hold your birthday. Every Rivers indigene owes it a duty to protect the state”.
When I came on board as Governor in 2015, we met an Internally Generated Revenue of N4.5billion monthly. But now, it has grown to N8-9billion monthly . If the state is not safe, our Internally Generated Revenue will not be on the increase.
Let nobody de-market Rivers State. This ugly politics will not work. We have not benefited anything from the APC Federal Government since 2015.
They are refunding money for Federal projects, but they delisted Rivers State. But I will not bow to anyone, I will only continue to respect constituted authority.
