Wike Vows to Fulfill Electioneering Promises



Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has vowed to fulfill all the promises he made to the people of the state before and after the 2015 general election.

Wike stated this yesterday while commissioning Rumueprikom-Rumuolumeni and Elioparanwo Roads.

The governor, who also flagged off the Tam David West Boulevard pledged to remain prudent in the management of state resources, pointing out that he would not play politics with projects but would continue to deliver quality service to Rivers people.

The Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekwerenmadu,  who commissioned the projects alongside  the governor  commended Wike for placing Rivers State on a fast lane of development within the past one year.

Ekwerenmadu said the number of projects commissioned by Governor Wike remained a clear testimony of his visionary leadership, pointing out that he has made the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) proud.

Wike, however, called on investors to key into the Greater Port Harcourt City Development Project, saying his administration has provided a conducive environment for their investments strive.

He described Rivers State as a haven for investors, adding that the objective for setting up the Authority was to expand urban development in line with global standards.

“This project is critical to the development of our State and we shall need the support and collaboration of Public Private Partnership for us to achieve set objectives,” the governor said.

The Sole Administrator of Greater Port Harcourt City Development Authority, Ambassador Desmond Akawor , commended Governor Wike for funding the organisation to execute the project in record time.

He assured that the management of the Authority would remain poised to  implement the New Vision Agenda as it relates to promoting urban development and planning.
