On Tuesday, the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, invited the President Muhammadu Buhar to Rivers State, to witness his administration’s accomplishments, TopNaija can confirm.

The governor also appreciated Buhari for approving the refund of N78.9bn to the Rivers State Government as cost of execution of Federal Government’s road projects in the state.

Wike, in a letter of appreciation to Buhari, said the President’s gesture in approving the refund to the state signified his love for Rivers people as well as every state in Nigeria.

Wike said, “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 the Federal Government to advance the developmental aspirations of Rivers State in particular, and our nation in general.

“I wish to, therefore, appeal to Mr. President to kindly oblige us with a state visit when invited, to see what we have accomplished for the state and our people with the money.”

    What is this NMA president saying? That reopening of schools should wait till when? Instead of him to be talking about how the federal govt should install necessary safety protocols in place & also enlighten the public he’s talking of poor adherence. Is it in the markets that everyone goes to that there’s strict adherence? Or is it in the churches/mosques? Now that interstate ban has been lifted, what’s the difference? Opening of schools won’t change a thing in the rate of spread after all you can still go to all these places & bring it back to those children of yours that are stuck at home. No one can be too careful.I’m sure that if your salaries are withheld for this time frame that you are still asking students to wallow at home, you will be the same ones clamoring for schools to reopen.
