The Federal Executive Council (FEC), which was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, May 23, approved N5.1billion for the rehabilitation of Ila Orangun – Oke Ila – Ilale Aka road linking Osun to Ekiti state.

This disclosure was made by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, when he briefed State House correspondents on the outcome of the Council’s meeting held at the presidential villa, Abuja.

He said the rehabilitation of the 34 kilometres’ road project which was started by Osun state government was abandoned after about three kilometres work on the project.

Reacting to allegation by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers that Federal Government is plotting to assassinate him, the minister, in his dismissal to the accusation, said that if not because the governor enjoyed immunity from prosecution he would have been summoned by relevant security agency to prove the allegation.

Mr Wike had on Sunday alerted Nigerians that the federal government was plotting to assassinate him in a crowd and claim accidental discharge.

The governor made this known at the third year anniversary thanksgiving service of the Wike administration at Living Faith Church in D-Line, Port Harcourt on Sunday.

He said: “Intelligence report available to us as at this morning indicate that they are plotting to assassinate me in a crowd and claim it was accidental discharge.’’
