Rivers  State  Governor,  Nyesom Ezenwo Wike  at the weekend  declared the  Operation  Zero Potholes programme  of  his administration  a huge success as it has restored 42 roads in the Diobu suburb of the state. 

Also  at the weekend ,  Ekiti State Governor,  Mr Peter Ayodele  Fayose commissioned the Bishop Okoye Street  in Diobu,  commending the  people of Rivers State for retrieving  the  state’s mandate  from “aliens” who stole the resources  of  the  state.

Governor Wike  personally  commissioned Azikiwe Street on the point where he flagged off  the  Operation  Zero  Potholes  programme on May 29, 2016.

The  Rivers State Governor,  Nyesom Ezenwo Wike  said the state government  expended N4 .3billion  to reconstruct  42 roads totalling 22.5 kilometres  in the densely  populated  Diobu axis.

He said  that the roads have impacted positively  on the lives of  the  people  of  Diobu where majority  of  the  less privileged  Rivers  residents live.

At the Bishop Okoye Street,  Governor  Wike  banned further Street trading  on the reconstructed and the illegal collect  of toll by unauthorised  persons.

He commended  the  contractor  for executing the project  on schedule  and within the approved budget.

Ekiti State Governor,  Mr Peter Ayodele Fayose stated that  the  people of Rivers State are reaping the fruits of their support  for  Governor  Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.

He urged the  people  never to allow political  aliens who are only  interested in  stealing  the resources of  the  state  back  to  the  seat of  government.

Rivers State Commissioner for Works, Mr Bathuel Iheanyichukwu stated that by constructing 42 roads in Diobu,  Governor  Wike  has ended the suffering  of  the  people.

Caretaker Committee Chairman  Port Harcourt Government Area, Sir Soni Ejekwu  said  the people of  the area  are happy that the governor  reconstructed roads that were neglected  since the colonial  era.

Diobu  suburb  plays host to the offices of most national  newspapers,  markets and electronic  shops.

The commissioning  of  Azikiwe  and Bishop  Okoye  Streets symbolically  represented  all the  roads in the Diobu suburb.
