Speaking during the concert, Governor Wike commended the artistes who graced the concert, promising to reward those who performed at the event as well as Burna Boy with N10m each.
“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.”
Governor Wike gifted the Grammy-winning artiste a piece of land in old Government Residential Area (GRA) and money to build a home for himself.
Governor Wike’s pledge is coming at a time he 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.
