Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has declared that his administration has stabilised the economy of the state through the strategic release of funds via payment of salaries and payment for key projects.
He also explained that he started with the renewal of infrastructure in Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor Local Government Areas because both towns support majority of the population of the state.
The governor also assured the people of the state that he would execute key projects in all the 23 Local Government Areas, saying no local government area would be denied the impact of good governance.
The governor spoke on Monday in Port Harcourt during a town hall meeting tagged: “Accounting for Governor Nyesom Wike’s Administration: One Year After”, where he fielded questions from the people of the state.
He said: “We have stabilised the economy of Rivers State since we took over the reins of leadership in the state. We achieved the stabilisation of the economy by injecting N151 billion as salaries and payment of contractors.
“These funds have helped us to rebuild our economy which was badly damaged by the immediate past administration”.
