Governor and some contractors

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has attributed the state’s excellent execution of critical infrastructure  to  his administration’s commitment to  his social contract with the people. 

Speaking  on Friday when he inspected ongoing road projects in parts of Obio/Akpor LGA,  Governor Wike assured  that his administration  will  execute  road projects  in all the 23 LGAS  of the  state. 

The governor inspected on work at the Eneka-Rukpokwu road, Oroigwe road, Elimgbu and Rumunduru-Oro-Igwe road.

He said that  since assuming office he made project  execution  his priority because  of his pledge to the ordinary people of  the state that he will utilise  their mandate to improve  their fortunes. 

According  to him: “In our 2016 budget, we allocated 60 percent of funds to capital expenditure while 40 percent was reserved for recurrent expenditure.  Therefore,  all efforts  are targeted at improving  the  living standard  of  the people. 

“This state is different  from  others in terms  of  project  execution  because  we have  prioritised funding of projects.  We are happy  with the results  we are getting  because  the  people  are satisfied with  the  efforts of  this administration”.

Governor Wike regretted that the immediate past  administration played politics with roads in the area leaving the communities inaccessible.  He said  that he has changed  the  situation  with regular funding of projects  supported by high level supervision. 

Governor Wike was accompanied on the  project inspection  by  two Rivers State PDP Chieftains , Chief Sergeant Awuse and Prince Emma Anyanwu.

Thousands  of  market women at the Oroigwe market  and residents of  the  communities  visited trooped out to sing the praises of the governor  for living up to  their expectations.
