    Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers, says while the federal government approved N10 billion for Lagos, his state is yet to receive any monetary support from the federal government for the fight against coronavirus.

    Writing via his Twitter handle, Wike accused the government of politicising efforts to fight the disease.

    While Rivers is being controlled by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Lagos, is under the All Progressives Congress (APC).

    Lagos has so far recorded 120 cases of the coronavirus while Rivers has one case.

    But the governor asked if the federal government is waiting for a state to have more than 50 cases before rendering support.
