Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has extended his warm appreciation to President Buhari for refunding the state N78. 9b spent in fixing federal roads. The said amount had been a point of feud between the state and federal government for a long time before the reparation.
The appreciation was contained in a signed statement published on The Nation Newspaper on Monday, June 29, 2020.
Governor Wike has put aside party's politics to hail Buhari and infer he is impartial and unbiased in his treatment for Nigerians and Nigerian states.
“Mr President has by this remarkable and heartwarming gesture shown not only your love for the government and people of Rivers state, but, also, demonstrated expressively that you are indeed a president for every state of the federation and all Nigerians” Wike said.

This is surprising however given to the perceived strained relationship between Wike and President Buhari's Federal Government which was heightened during the initial phases of the lockdown.
Is Governor Wike playing a smart politics?
