He said “Rivers state is the 2nd highest debt ridden state in Nigeria with no tangible project to show for the debts recorded and the state govt is shying away from coming out to explain”.

The advocacy group then called on civil societies and human rights fighting organisations to “join us in Rivers state on a fact finding mission on our claims in ensuring that Governor Nyesom Wike’s administration observes all accountability and transparency measures in the running of the state in the interest of development.”
