Covid 19: Wike Knocks Buhari For Giving N10bn Grant To Lagos

LAGOS APRIL 7TH (NEWSRANERS)-Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has slam Federal Government for supporting Lagos state with N10bn  to fight coronavirus pandemic.

He stated that it is quite unfortunate that the containment of coronavirus has been politicized by the Federal Government.

Wike lamented that   while Lagos State received a grant of N10billion as a commercial hub, #Covid-19, Rivers State as the nation’s oil and gas hub that produces a greater percentage of the nation’s wealth has not received any support from the Federal Government.#Covid_19
According to him, “One wonders why Federal Government should single out a state out of 36 States to give support. Does it mean that support will come when a State has a record of over 50 infected persons before it gets support. #Covid-19
“No state should be seen as more important than any other state. This is a Federal Republic. No state is superior to others.
“Rivers State is entitled to support from the Federal Government. Every day, we are inundated with letters from the Federal Government to allow oil companies to fly in expatriates to drill Oil.
“Then we ask, what is the status of those coming from Lagos? Nobody has told us their status as regards coronavirus.
“If they come to come Rivers without us knowing their status, what will be implication assuming they have the virus.”
