KanyiDaily recalls that Governor Wike had promised all the artistes that performed at the homecoming concert held in honour of Burna Boy the sum of N10 million each.

“Those of you who have come to play, whatever you have agreed with the ministry of culture and tourism is not my business,” he said.

“All of you that have come today and the Niger Delta people that have come to play today to show the talent you have, I’m very proud of you. All of you will go home with N10 million each.”

It was also gathered that the governor gifted the Grammy-winning artiste a piece of land and money to build for himself a home at Old GRA, Port Harcourt.

The pledge is coming at a time Governor Wike is yet to resolve a lingering dispute over the non-payment of pensions and gratuity to thousands of retired Civil Servants since the inception of the administration in 2015.

The governor’s donation also comes a week after public school teachers protested over five years non-payment of salaries by the Rivers government.

The protesting teachers told journalists that they have lost about ten of their colleagues due to the hardship experienced within the period.

Many Nigerians have taken to social media to attack Governor Wike for what they tagged reckless spending, despite owing River workers salaries.
