Former Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomole has arrived Rivers State to commission some projects executed by Governor Nyesom Wike.
Oshiomhole arrived in Rivers State on Tuesday night and was personally received by Governor Wike who was in the company of his deputy, Ipalibo Harry-Banigo, and other leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.
Oshiomole is to commission a flyover project located on Ada George road, adjacent the private residence of Wike in his country home of Rumueprikom in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of the State.
The flyover is the eighth completed by the Wike administration.
Explaining why he invited leaders from opposition parties to inaugurate his projects, Wike said he is free to invite whoever he wants to be present at such events because he has the right to.
According to Wike, the presidential candidates of the Labour Party, Peter Obi and his New Nigeria National Party counterpart, Rabiu Kwankwaso, would also be in the state to open some projects.
He also confirmed that President Muhammadu Buhari would be in the state to inaugurate the Port Harcourt Campus of the Nigeria Law School.
Responding to critics, Wike submitted that “Those, who are saying why am I not inviting them to inaugurate projects, you invite me to inaugurate in your own place. I have a choice to invite whoever I want to come and inaugurate projects. On Wednesday, Adams Oshiomhole will come.”
