Governor Wike of River State has demonstrated so far the attributes of good and working governor which can be equated to good deeds no matter how stretched.
However, if for any political reasons he may have decided to frown and turn a blind eyes to some roads then, it can not be equated to good deeds.
The continuous silence and neglect of Etche Road and Oyigbo internal roads by Gov.Nyesom Wike is very ridiculous.
It appears Gov.Wike does not understand what is called the Political Economy of Rivers State.
Etche is the food basket of Rivers State, Etche is the only LGA in Nigeria that produces Aviation fuel for the entire country.
Etche is also an oil and gas producing LGA in Rivers. The #78.9 billion refund giving to Rivers State government and the federal allocation the Governor collects every month largely comes from Etche.
Oyibo is Housing the Afam Power Plant that supplies light to Rivers State yet that community doesn’t have any good road.
I think any responsible government will not wait for a protest before fixing these roads where the source of revenue and Power comes from.
Rivers State Government has the capacity to fix All the Bad roads in Etche and Oyigbo without any stress. The Governor should not also deceive Etche People by the politics of federal road and getting authorization from federal government.
The Same way the Governor managed to be building Fly overs at Rumuokoro,Artelliery, Garrison and now expansion of Rumuola fly over the Governor should apply Sama strategy to fix Etche road. I have never seen this type of one sided development in Rivers State before.
