The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike on Saturday fulfilled his promise to affected traders of the popular fruit garden market in Portharcourt whose goods and shops were destroyed in a fire incident.
Suanu’s Blog gathered that the excited traders were issued cheques of N400,000 for each trader who had a shop and N300,000 for trader who had attachments.
Gov.Wike also assured the traders who had shops of the return of their shops on completion of the market.
The traders were full of appreciation to the governor for the kind gesture.
Suanu’s Blog recalls that a similar financial compensation has been extended to the traders by the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State, Arch.Pastor Tonye Cole few days ago.
