Rivers  State  Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that  he will never renege on his pledges to Rivers people, saying  he is committed to  the  development  of  the  state.
Speaking  in Port Harcourt yesterday while commissioning the New Borikiri Road  (Dr Abiye Sekibo road), Njamanze/ Abonnema Wharf Road   and the Industry Road,  the governor  said  that  the road projects are targeted at improving  the  living condition  of  the  people.
During  the  commissioning  of  the New Road Borikiri, Governor  Wike  said  he directed the reconstruction  of the Borikiri New Road after Former Minister of Transport, Dr Abiye Sekibo drew his attention  to  the  suffering  of  the  densely populated suburb.
He said: “I am happy  that this important  road has been delivered  to  improve  the  living condition  of  the  people  of  Borikiri.  This is in fulfilment  of  the  promise  I made  to the people after I trekked to this community alongside  Dr Abiye Sekibo and Rt Hon Austin Opara.
“From Today henceforth,  this road shall  be  known and called Dr Abiye Sekibo  road.  We shall  continue  to  work  for the people. The PDP  government  is committed to developing  the  state  and keeping  all promises to  the  people who gave us their mandate”.
Speaking  while commissioning  the Industry Road,  the  governor  said  that  the  decision  to  reconstruct the road was targeted at creating  access to the Port Facility in the area and also create alternate route to Bundu  Waterside.
He berated the Nigerian Port Authority, NPA for failing  to meet its obligations  after it agreed to fund the reconstruction  of  the  road  in conjunction  with  the  state government.
The  governor  said that businesses  at the Port have improved with the reconstruction  of the  Industry Road .
The  governor  said  that the  Njamanze/Abonnema Wharf Road has economic  significance as it connects the petroleum  tank farms to the State Capital  and the Diobu.

He appealed to  the  people  to support his administration  to deliver  on critical  infrastructure
The  State Commissioner for Works. Mr Bethel Iheanyichukwu said all the road projects  were done  in line with  approved specifications .
