The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has for the first time refused to follow the path of his political associate, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, by refusing to condemn the recent decision to spend $1 billion of the funds in the Excess Crude Account to fight Boko Haram.
Recall that the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, had on Thursday, told Journalists that the Governors had agreed at the National Economic Council, NEC, meeting, to spend $1 billion from the ECA to fight Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East region.
Unlike his Ekiti State counterpart, Ayo Fayose, who opposed the decision and said he was not a party to the Governors agreeing to make such spending, Wike did not oppose the disbursement of the funds.
Rather, the Rivers Governor asked the Federal Government to also release funds for tackling issues of environmental degradation and security in the Niger Delta.

The Governor said the problems of environmental and security challenges in the Niger Delta, are as important as the fight against Boko Haram.
He said this during the Annual General Meeting, AGM, of Okpo Club of Nigeria (Association of Ikwerre Lawyers), on Saturday, in Port Harcourt.
Wike urged the Federal Government to release the derivation component of the Excess Crude Account to the oil-producing States of the Niger Delta.
“Niger Delta environmental problems are as serious as the Boko Haram Insurgency”, he said.
“I am not saying that you should not fight Boko Haram. If you can get funds from the National Pool to tackle Boko Haram, then you should go to the pool to get funds to fight environmental problems in Ogoni, and other Niger Delta communities.”
