Rivers Governor Nyesom in a viral video mocked governors of Ekiti and Ondo for their failure to construct the road linking their states.
In the viral video, Mr Fayemi said the likes of Mr Wike are beneficiaries of struggle for democracy which he participated in.

Though in opposing political parties, Messrs Fayemi and Wike have enjoyed camaraderie as brother-governors.
But Mr Wike is not know to let a jab slide, he promptly took a counterjab at Mr Fayemi, poking him with deplorable state road between Ekiti and Ondo.
“What is the essence of if we don’t do, if we don’t do? From Ekiti to Akure no road,” Mr Wike said, suggesting that Mr Fayemi could not use his influence as a top APC governor to get the federal road fixed.
The video was shared on Facebook by Tope Fasua, former presidential candidate for Abundant Nigeria Renewal Party (ANRP). However, we cannot immediately determine where and when the viral video was recorded.
According to Google map, Ado-Ekiti to Akure, Ondo State capital, is a 47.8 kilometers distance.
