Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has lashed out at those criticizing him for citing all the flyovers built by his administration in Ikwerre land.

The governor told his critics to go and die as there was nothing he could do about it.

He maintained that it would be regrettable not to begin to solve the traffic situation that may emanate from the increase in population in the coming years.

He said, “You can see the landscape from Eleme junction to the Government House, 6 flyovers there. As you are going up, you’re coming down.

“Some people say all these flyovers are in Ikwerre land, what’s my business? If you don’t like the place, you can go ahead and die. There’s nothing I can do about it.

“If you project what will happen in this State in the next three to four years and you don’t try to solve the problem of traffic now, you will regret it.

“The population explosion and traffic congestion will be something else.

“So it is better to solve it now than waiting till that time.”
