Wike Commissions Road Projects, Pledges For More Infrastructural Development
The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has commissioned the reconstructed Minorlu-Mgbuakara-Elioparanwo roads in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.
Commissioning the project on Friday, Governor Wike, said that infrastructural development is the right way to reach majority of the people.
He said no matter the level of generosity, it will be impossible to reach all members of the community through direct government patronage.
The governor said: “These projects represent our own way of reaching out to our people irrespective of their political affiliation.
“We are embarking on infrastructural development because there is no way we can share money directly to people. Once we complete a project, everyone benefits from it”.
Governor Wike commended the people of the area for their support for the State Government, saying that they will benefit from more projects.
He urged the people to create the right environment for his administration to plant projects in all communities.
Earlier, the Commissioner of Works, Dum Dekor, said that the road was not motorable, forcing residents to use alternative routes.
He said with the completion of the road, communities in the area will have their economies boosted.
The commissioning was attracted traditional rulers, women and youth groups.
