Wike accuses FG of withholding Rivers’ support fund
Rivers State governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has accused the APC Federal Government of denying his state its share of Government Special Funds under the approved Government Budget Support Fund.
He said official sources disclosed that the fund was withheld because of the governor’s critical stance on national issues, while all other states have received theirs.
The governor spoke, yesterday, in Port Harcourt during the commissioning of Bishop Fubara Street, Captain Amangala Street and Tourist Beach Road by former Delta State governor, Chief James Ibori.
He said the arm-twisting tactics of the APC administration will not stop him from standing up for the people of Rivers State and the Niger Delta.
On the three roads commissioned by former Governor Ibori, Wike said his administration was committed to enhancing the living condition of the people of Port Harcourt, even as he directed Julius Berger to reconstruct the remaining roads in Port Harcourt.
