As the Rumueche-Rumuakande-Ohna Awuse road was today commissioned by former Governor of Imo State, Senator Roachas Okorocha, Rivers State Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike called on leaders and politicians in the state not to persist in hatred or bitterness. The Governor who said politics must not be done with permannent antagonism and bitterness said he is funding and completeing projects started by his predecessor because they were started with public funds.
He said the roads being commisioned would be fitted with streetlights while the Isiodu and Mbitanwo roads in Emuoha LGA would also be constructed.
Sen Okorocha in his remark aplauded Governor Wike who he said has “continued to finish projects started by his predecessor even when you are not best of friends” he urged other leaders to emulate this practice from the Rivers State Governor.
He further stated that people don’t like those that can boldly say the uncomfortable truth but Nigeria needs people like Governor “Wike to speak out from time to time for the ills of society to be corrected.”
While acknowledging they are good and bad people in both the All Progressives Congress and Official Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) he offered to work with Governor Wike even as he called on good people in both political parties that want a better Nigeria to put party aside, unite and challenge the norm to make Nigeria great.
