Wike, APC Clash Over Osinbajo’s Visit
Osinbajo had visited the state on Thursday and inaugurated a fertiliser plant built by Indorama Eleme Petrochemical Limited and two other projects by the state government.
But barely three days after his visit, the state governor, Nyesom Wike and opposition in the state are having a go at each other.
Wike had accused the Rivers APC of preventing Osinbajo from inaugurating the remaining projects executed by his administration.
The state governor had argued that Osinbajo’s visit was based on the invitation of the state government and wondered why the APC leadership would discourage the Acting President from inaugurating other projects.
He said, “They didn’t want the Acting President to come and see what we are doing. Anyhow, Nigerians have seen what we have done. Some people were in office for eight years, yet couldn’t do anything for the people.
“The little we have done for our people, we asked them to come and take a look. They prevented the Acting President from coming because they felt his coming to inaugurate the projects would make the party (PDP) popular.”
But the state’s APC Publicity Secretary, Chris Finebone, said contrary to the governor’s claim, the Acting President was pressed for time and managed to inaugurate only two road projects.
