Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has applauded the massive investments in infrastructure by his counterpart in Rivers State, Nyesom Wike.
Governor Sanwo-Olu made the commendation while commissioning the Orochiri-Worukwo Flyover in Port Harcourt on Monday.
He described Governor Wike as a talk-and-do governor.
Sanwo-Olu added that Rivers and Lagos share a lot of similarities – he suggested that the two states should synergise to provide solid leadership in the league of states in Nigeria.
“I will like to specially commend my brother and colleague, Governor Wike for his strong commitment to the delivery of physical infrastructures in the entire Rivers State, a commitment that has been recognised and acknowledged by all.
“You can hate a man or may not like his face but you cannot dispute the good works he has done, Governor Wike you are a talk-and-do governor.
“Rivers State and Lagos State share a lot in common; we are both economic hubs of our respective regions.
“We are both densely populated with rapidly growing populations mostly from our respective neighbouring states. Huge urbanisation and increased pressure on our physical infrastructures. We both enjoy a fairly extensive coastline of water.”
“People are drawn to Lagos and Rivers as places where economic opportunities abound; where dreams are fulfilled; where you can achieve your greatest aspirations in life,” Sanwo-Olu said
