The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has arrived in Rivers State for the commissioning of some projects done by the government of Governor Nyesom Wike in the state.
A video shared on Twitter by the Chief Press Secretary to the Lagos State Governor, Gboyega Akosile shows the moment Sanwo-Olu was received upon arrival by Wike.
The video also captured the Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi as the three Governors exchanged pleasantries and laughed together as they embraced and shared banters.
As earlier reported by Naija News, Wike had invited his counterpart in Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to inaugurate the Orochiri-Worukwo flyover today, Monday, 8th August, 2022.
Umahi on his part had been in Rivers State where he held a closed-door meeting with Wike on Sunday.

Wike’s Move Unsettles PDP Leaders
The decision by Governor Wike to ignore chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and invite stalwarts of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to commission projects in Rivers State is reported to have caused jitters within the PDP circle.
It is understood this is the first in a long time that the former presidential aspirant would not invite top members of the PDP to commission projects.
Governor Wike in the programme scheduled to start on Monday invited Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to inaugurate the Orochiri-Worukwo flyover.
A former Governor of Sokoto State would be in the State on Tuesday to inaugurate the Ogbum-Nu-Abali Eastern Bypass dualised road.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila was invited to inaugurate the House of Assembly quarters on Friday, while former Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko would commission the dualization of Azikiwe Illoabuchi Road.
There’s been an air of uncertainty about the status of Wike following the crisis that has engulfed the PDP over the emergence of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and his decision to pick the Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.
