The people of Rivers State are now using Wheel barrow as the means of transporting themselves to walk across the the Flyover constructed by Wike’s government across Obio/Akpor LGA.
The woman in the picture using wheel barrow could not trek the distance restricted by the governor anymore thereby solving in using wheel barrow as a means of transportation.
Many Rivers residence in this area are using wheel barrow to cross the flyover.
It will be noted that the governor had on November 2020 locked up the Rumokoro thereby restricted motors from accessing that area.
But, the flyover had since been completed and the governor has refused to open the area for people to go through. Businesses had been shot down and means of livelihood is becoming unbearable according to the dwellers.
Rivers people are lamenting because of the government’s insensitivity to plight of the people.
No commercial motors are permitted to pass there except government and politicians can move with their vehicles, aside those mentioned, the wheel barrow pushers “Abokis” are permitted to use their barrows because this place is secured by their brothers in the military.
According to one of the Rivers citizen reasons for the governor’s action might not be connected to APC or PDP struggle for governmental powers but maybe due to his political calculation to commission the road and the flyover on a sensitive period like Easter when political echoes will be more resounding. This is to the detriment of the people, he said.
