Vice Chairman, North Central Zone of the NUJ, Chief Wilson Bako who led a team of delegates to visit various roads and flyover bridges in the metropolis, said he had heard so much on radio and television about what Governor Wike was doing in Rivers and he is glad to see it firsthand.
Chief Bako said the quality of the projects were best stressing that the most impressive thing about the bridges is how the Governor was able to secure them with fences to prevent lunatics and miscreants from taking over as it was the case with other states that managed to construct few bridges.

The Vice Chairman, NUJ Jigawa State, Larai Musa in her reaction stated that she had heard about the performance of Governor Wike and was here to see things for herself adding that Wike deserves commendations and promised to vote for him if decides to contest President.
