Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that his administration is building a culture of commitment and passion in the service of the state.
Speaking after he inspected ongoing projects in Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor Local Government Area on Tuesday, Governor Wike said he is raising the bar on projects initiation and execution because there is the need to depart from the past.
He noted that in the past, projects were designed without consideration for quality and durability .
The governor said: “By the time I conclude my sojourn in office, I want to leave a legacy of quality projects across the state.
“We have raised the bar to ensure that all our projects are executed in line with the new high standards that will ensure the projects last a long time “.
Commenting on the State Ecumenical Centre, he urged the Christian Association of Nigeria to map out a plan to raise funds for the maintenance of the facility after its completion.
He added that at regular intervals the state government will always support the Christian Association of Nigeria to main the centre.
The governor inspected the ongoing construction of the State Ecumenical Centre, the Port Harcourt Pleasure Park, Second Nkpogu Bridge and the Landscaping Architecture at Airforce overheard bridge, Port Harcourt.
