“You can see the joy on the faces of the people during today’s inspection visits to industry road and Borokiri.

      Bad belle lunatic. Wike will win over and over again whether you call it filling of potholes or not. Besides, Efe has rightly answered you that it’s better to fill potholes because if unattended to, they cause avoidable accidents. Ge a life o!

    To be truthful,its better to fill potholes than not to do anything at all,its pothole that causes accident and kill people..Some Gov’nors do just NOTHING and they still go scotfree, so in my view,filling potholes is something,if its true that he is just filling potholes rather than doing proper construction and reabilitation of roads.


    Why and when shall we have a true developmental Governors,government in Nigeria,i think Wike is better than Amaechi,Amaech looted the state fund to support six months after elections without ministers,and not one corrupt person have been named talkless of prosecuted,rather more thieves being nominated as minister because they succeeded in looting their states fund to fund election
