In what many have considered to be a waste of resources, Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has gifted the members of the state’s National Assembly 16 Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV).
Wike revealed this via his facebook page.
3 of the vehicles were gifted to the Senators representing the state, while the 13 left went to the House of Representatives members.
Wike, making the presentation at the Government House Port Harcourt on Monday, charged the lawmakers to always defend the interest of the state.
‘Defend the interest of the state wherever you are. This is from the Government of Rivers State which you are part of. This is to aid you to carry out your official functions in Abuja.”
Betty Apiaf, leader of the Rivers Caucus at the House of Representatives, thanked the governor for his support for the members in carrying out their duties.
