The Governor who was speaking at the commissioning of the Ultra Modern Corporate Head Office Complex of the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas, NLNG Port Harcourt reiterated that Rivers State was safe for investors and business.
He commended the Management of NLNG for building their corporate Head Office in the state as well as always identifying with their host communities.
Governor Wike expressed dismay the inability of the Federal Government to fulfil its own obligation of sixty Billion Naira out of the one hundred and twenty Billion Naira contract sum for the construction of the Bonny-Bodo Road but can afford to fund the construction of Abuja-Kano dual carriage way road project for the cost of over seven hundred and eighty Billion Naira.
He also lauded NLNG for the bold initiative to fund the Bonny-Bodo Road project while the counterpart fund of the Federal Government be deducted from its taxes and assured that they would continue to enjoy a hitche-free environment to operate in the State.
