Governor Wike Reassures  Rivers People That No Projects Will Be Abandoned

Paul Obiajunwo, Port Harcourt

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike    has reassured   the people of the state that  his administration will  not abandon any ongoing project, irrespective of the  economic downturn in the country. 

Speaking  at the symposium/ heroic Award by the Grand Patron of Apara Committee  of Friends, AFC, on Saturday Governor Wike  noted that his projects  execution  framework  has been  properly  laid out to accommodate all ongoing  projects. 

He noted that  his principled and  consistent  execution  of  projects  have stimulated economic growth across the state. 

The governor who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Engineer Chukwuemeka Woke said: “We will not abandon any of our ongoing projects. We will continue  our infrastructural development in 2017”.

He recalled that when  his administration came on board,  projects in Rumupirikom  were abandoned  and  a major oil tank farm that was bringing petroleum products into the city was also cut off.

“As a government,  let me assure you that we are very well prepared for the administration of Rivers State. You will  recall that the outgone administration declared publicly that Rivers state government will not be able to pay salaries after they wasted all the resources of this state playing national politics.

He said  that  because  the administration was well prepared, it was  able to tackle projects abandoned by the immediate past  administration  and initiate new projects for the people.

He expressed happiness  that the Apara Committee of  Friends  recognised  his administration’s achievements  with the conferment of award  on him.

He said  he will  never disappoint the people  of the area in his commitment  to  the development of the state.
