Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has assured people of the state that projects started by his administration will be completed in line with approved specifications.
Wike said during his tenure, no project would be abandoned, adding that he had mapped out strategies to apply funds for their completion.
The governor, who spoke on Saturday after he inspected ongoing road projects in Port Harcourt, Obio-Akpor, Ikwere and Etche Local Government Areas, pointed out that he would also complete relevant projects abandoned by the past administration.
He said, “Today’s project inspection has been fruitful. We are happy at the pace of work at the different sites visited and the people are also happy. The reception we got is an encouragement to do more for the people.
“Our first year anniversary will be a celebration of wonderful projects executed by this administration. Most of the roads visited today (Saturday) will be completed by the end of May.”
Wike had visited the Oroigwe Road, Olukwu Road, Emeka, Igwuruta-Chokocho Road and Obio-Akpor Market Road.
Meanwhile, the governor has directed the Chairman of the Local Government Service Commission, Azubuike Mmerukini, to coordinate the handover formalities by the Local Government Caretaker Committee Chairmen to Heads of Local Government.
A statement signed by Wike’s Special Assistant on Electronic Media, Mr. Simeon Nwakaudu, said, “It should be noted that the outgoing Local Government Caretaker Committee Chairmen are now expected to hand over to the Heads of Local Government. This directive supercedes the earlier directive by the governor.”
