Wike bemoans Federal Government’s insincerity towards Bodo-Bonny Road funding.

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has bemoaned Federal Government’s insincerity and refusal to contribute it’s own part of the agreed counterpart funding for the construction of the Bodo-Bonny link Road.

The Governor, who received the Managing Director of the Nigerian Liquified Natural Gas, Mr Tony Attah, at the government house in Portharcourt on Thursday expressed displeasure at the Federal Government, saying that some areas are treated as if they are not part of Nigeria.

The tripartite agreement for construction of the Bodo-Bonny link Road was signed in September 2017 between the Federal Government and the Nigerian Liquified Natural Gas (NLNG) with both parties agreeing to provide 60 Billion Naira each to ensure a successful completion of the project which is to be handled by the construction giant, Julius Berger.

The Governor explained that the NLNG/FG partnership for the road was initiated by him and wondered why ” it was easy to access $1bn to fight insurgency but difficult to afford N60bn for the Bonny Road”.
