Investors confidence on the rise in Rivers State, says Governor Wike Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that investors confidence in the state is on the rise following his administration’s development of critical infrastructure.
Speaking on Tuesday in Port Harcourt while commissioning the multi -billion naira Port Harcourt Gardens Estate, Governor Wike said credible investors are already taking advantage of the prospects of the state.
Ekweremadu raised the alarm over what he described as attempt to truncate Nigeria’s democracy and “silence him as the leader and highest ranking member of the opposition in the country, all in the name of prosecuting an alleged forgery case.”
The accused were alleged to have stolen and illegally disbursed about N4.9 billion Naira belonging to the Federal Government of Nigeria for political and personal uses.
It was gathered that Sen. Shehu Sani, who spent four years in various prisons across the country during the era of late Gen. Sani Abacha, tutored the Senate leaders at the Court during their forgery case.
