We have not yet received N78bn from FG – Wike

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has revealed that the President Muhammadu Buhari government has not refunded the State the money it approved some months ago.

Recall that Wike had thanked President Buhari, describing him as indeed a President of every State of the Federation and all Nigerians following the approval of the sum N78.9 billion the Rivers Government used in maintenance of Federal roads in the State, Daily Time gathered.
