Rivers State Did Not Receive Bailout Fund From the FG – Gov. Wike



To mark his first 100 days spent in office, the Rivers governor, Nyesom Wike, held a “People’s Forum” at the Obi Wali International Conference Centre. He told the audience that Rivers did not get any bail-out funds from the fed­eral government.

“For record purposes, I wish to tell this Forum that Rivers State did not get bailout funds from the FG. It is important to let you know the facts, before peo­ple start saying a different thing,” said the governor.

On what he achieved in 100 days, Wike said that his administration did “capital projects”, paid salaries, staff welfare, se­curity, housing, education, sports development and job creation, among others.

“Although, we have committed more resources to road construction, it does not mean that our admin­istration cares less about other priorities,” he empha­sised.
