A statement by  Simeon Nwakaudu, Special Assistant to the Rivers State Governor on Electronic Media pointed out  that  several of Ogoni people  in separate  interviews  on Friday  expressed  happiness  that Governor Wike is a man who keeps his words. 

Those interviewed commended the  Wike administration  for exhibiting commitment  in the execution  of  the  road and the school  project  which will enhance the economy  of  the  area.

Barizi Menegbu,  a resident of Bori noted that the construction  of  the  road has helped the economy  of  the area as many residents have been engaged by the contractors. 

In his remarks,  David Winda commended the governor for taking steps to dualise  the Sakpenwa-Bori  Road, which will reduce carnage on the ever busy road that serves Gokana, Khana, Tai, Andoni and Opobo-Nkoro Local Government Areas.

A resident of Sakpenwa town, Ann  Inchinga said the people appreciate  the efforts of the Wike administration  because  the road has been abandoned  for several years without  action from previous  administrations.

At the Birabi Memorial Grammar School, Bori, the teachers and students  sang the praises of Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike  for changing their fortunes by rehabilitating  the popular  school.

Two teachers, Akpobari Akpoyor and Deezia Barikpoa said for the first time since they started teaching  in the school, the institution  now has modern facilities  that will enhance  the quality  of  teaching  and  learning. 

The students said that before the intervention  of Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike  they had planned to withdraw from the school due to the dilapidated  infrastructure that demoralised them in the institution. 

They praised Governor  Wike  for keeping  his  promise of reviving the prominent  institution in the heartland of Ogoni ethnic nationality. 

The students–Deemua Justice, Lebari Dornubari, Maakue Queen Letam  and Lenwi  Gold said they will remain  eternally  grateful to the governor for giving education  the top priority  attention  that it deserves. 

Vice Principal,  Administration,  Birabi Memorial Grammar School, Bori,  Mr Kayi Green commended the quality  of  rehabilitation  of  facilities  in the school  by the governor. 

He said that learning  and  teaching  have been boosted in the school since the rehabilitation  work started.

It will be recalled  that  Governor Wike pledged that the Sakpenwa-Bori Road and the Rehabilitation of the Birabi Memorial Grammar School will be completed on schedule as part of his comprehensive  programme  to develop  Ogoni  land.
