Speaking to Newsmen after its weekly Executive session, the Chancellor of Bonny Gentlemen’s League, Amaopusenibo (Squadron Leader) Olam Allwell-Brown (Rtd) congratulated His Excellency, Chief Barr. Ezenwo Nyesom Wike, on the successful completion of the second year of his second tenure as Executive Governor of Rivers State.
He however, observed with dismay, that Bonny LGA was conspicuously missing among the LGAs listed for projects’ flag-offs or commissioning as part of activities to mark His Excellency’s second year celebrations and bemoaned the virtual lack of projects in Bonny LGA.
It will be recalled that the League, a forefront socio-cultural organization, had in a Communique issued after its 41st Annual Convention in December 2020, called on the Rivers State Government to turn the beam of its development torch towards Bonny LGA; because of its strategic economic contributions to the coffers of both the Federal and State governments on daily basis.
The League also noted with sadness that 5 Bonny sons who were kidnapped on Bonny soil since September 12, 2020, were still in the custody of their abductors; and called on the government and security agencies to redouble efforts towards their rescue.
Finally, the League urged the Governor anew, to give Bonny LGA primacy of consideration in projects conception, execution and commissioning towards His Excellency’s third year celebrations and leave some enduring legacies in the LGA.
