Osinbajo, Amaechi, Wike and the Chokocho-Umuechem-Ozuzu Road And Chokocho-Igbo-Etche-Rumuokurushi Inter-Change
These two roads span thirty kilometres. They constitute some of the major interventions of Governor Wike to resolve the deliberate neglect that the Etche Ethnic Nationality suffered under the Amaechi administration for eight years.
Little wonder, Amaechi was so afraid to accompany the Acting President to Etche for the commissioning of the two projects. Governor Wike had earlier restored the link between Etche and Port Harcourt when he constructed the Igwuruta-Chokocho road and Ulakwo- II-Afara-Nihi road. He is also reconstructing General Hospitals at Okehi and Omuma Local Government Area.
When Acting President Yemi Osinbajo saw the importance of the road to the people of Etche Ethnic Nationality, he joined them to sing. He shared in their joy. He prayed that such opportunities should be replicated for them. In his happiness, he walked on the two roads, shaking hands with the people.
It was a palpable celebration of performance. An endorsement of the judicious use of Rivers resources to improve the living condition of the people. A silent advice to other governors to borrow a leaf from Governor Wike.
Indeed, it was a statement that partisan politics has no place in projects delivery. For Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, a performer deserves encouragement, irrespective of his political affiliation.
A this stage, it is better to quote Acting President Yemi Osinbajo. Though the supporters of the failed former Governor Amaechi will hate this, the truth must be told.
The words of the Acting President:
“Today is a very happy day. And I pray that we always have happy days. I am very happy to be here to witness the commissioning of these roads in this local government.
“The Federal Government wants to support every effort makes the life of people easier and benefits the people. I want to say that this effort is one of those that makes life easier for people, especially the people of Etche.
“We must always look for ways that we can advance the interest of this country..
I am very happy to see the sense of unity here in Rivers State. The governor is the one who initiated this project and has done it very well.
“Here we have Senator Magnus Abe from another party. I want to say that sense of unity and collaboration is important.
“I want to commend Governor Wike for the great work. This is great. I know that there are other great works he is doing. This is wonderful to see. I will look at it myself.
I am very happy that the people of Etche are experiencing this great project. Let me enjoy this day with you, God bless you.
“Its been largely a successful visit. I thank the governor for his hospitality as usual and for the work that he is doing.”
