Port Harcourt — The Federal Government is not partnering with the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Limited, for the construction of Bodo-Bonny road, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said.
Governor Wike speaking in Port Harcourt, also stated the APC led federal government has not done anything in Rivers state for the people.
He described as untrue the claim by the federal government that it is jointly executing the Bonny -Bodo Roads.
“The only thing they are arguing now is that they are doing Bonny-Bodo Road. No, with due respect, that’s no correct. That road was supposed to be done by NLNG and the federal government. NLNG brought their N60billion, federal Government did not bring any Kobo.
“Now they are trying to use the tax that NLNG is supposed to pay to do the road. The tax would have been shared from the federation account and part of the money would have come to Rivers State.
“So, federal government cannot say that they’re the one doing Bonny-Bodo road. All of us are jointly doing the road.”
According to Governor Wike, Nigeria is now on life support and requires prayers from well meaning Nigerians in order to salvage the county.
“The exchange rate has now got to N510 to a Dollar. When they took over, it was N150 to a Dollar. They said they’ll give employment. Do we have employment today? Are your children employed?
“That is not what I thought all of us needed. The country is on oxygen (life support). Nobody knows what will happen next. As we are today, Nigeria is in dire need of help. Nigeria needs prayers; to our mothers and sisters, you must kneel down and pray to God to salvage this country.”
