Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has berated the management of the Rivers State School of Public Health Nursing over inability to maintain the school’s infrastructure.
Governor Wike who was unhappy over the bad condition of the institution stated that his administration will totally rehabilitate the State School of Public Health Nursing.
Speaking on Tuesday during his inspection of the Rivers State School of Public Health Nursing, Governor Wike said that the comprehensive rehabilitation of the school may require shutting it down for a while.
The governor was accompanied on Tuesday’s inspection of projects by the Senator Representing Rivers-East Senatorial District, Senator George Thompson Sekibo.
The governor expressed sadness that the management of the school refused to take basic sanitary measures to ensure that the school’s environment is conducive for teaching and learning.
He said: “What I saw at the Rivers State School of Public Health Nursing is quite disappointing. The environment of the school is very unkempt and the buildings are in bad condition.
“We will revive and rehabilitate the School of Public Health Nursing and bring the school up to the standard needed to train nurses”.
Also on Tuesday, Governor Wike inspected ongoing work at the Rumuokoro Market and Bus Park in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.
He commended the contractor for the quality of work done, saying that the project when completed would help to resolve traffic congestion in that area.
The governor also inspected the construction of the State Ecumenical Centre in Port Harcourt.
