The group in a statement to CAPITAL POST on Saturday in Lokoja, said Yahaya Bello is Wike’s contemporary in governance as both are now serving their two terms, but unfortunately, there were no projects to commission in Kogi State in the last five years.

The statement said, Bello would be encouraged by the mode and system adopted by Rivers State Governor; that he will also learn how Nyesom Wike is doing it amidst economic downturn and COVID-19 challenges.

Part of the statement read:
“The invitation to Kogi Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello to commission projects in Rivers State will be an eye opener and a learning stage for his next three years.

“If Nyesom Wike grants Yahaya Bello the opportunity to be in Rivers, he should be conducted round the State to see infrastructural development and Rivers governor should have a close door meeting with Bello so that he can ask how Wike has been paying full salaries to Rivers workers.

“It is magical and realistic at the same time, that Governor Wike keep commisioning and awarding new projects while other states of the federation are cut napping.
