Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has challengedÂ the national leadershipÂ of the All Progressives CongressÂ (APC) to present their Â best performing statesÂ of the partyÂ for a peer reviewÂ againstÂ Rivers State.Â
Speaking while inaugurating 10 internal RoadsÂ constructedÂ byÂ his administration in Ogbunabali area of Port HarcourtÂ on Friday, Wike said that RiversÂ State was the centre of fastÂ delivery of pro-people projects in the country.Â
He said: “I challenge them (APC) to bring their statesÂ for a peer reviewÂ against Rivers State. Let them attempt to do the projects we are doingÂ in the state.Â
“Here in Rivers State, we are no longerÂ talking about payment of salaries. We haveÂ gone beyondÂ that level. We are busy working, talkingÂ aboutÂ theÂ deliveryÂ of different types of projects”.Â
The governor said that the administrationÂ had a covenantÂ with the people of Rivers State, which was the platformÂ upon which he deliveredÂ projectsÂ to the people.Â
“WhateverÂ they say, we shall continueÂ toÂ do what is right.Â All we require is prayer from the people,” he said.Â He said that contract has been awardedÂ for the construction of additional roads in the area and the erection of street lights on all the constructed roads.
Â TheÂ governorÂ appealed to theÂ people toÂ continue supportingÂ his administrationÂ for sustained development.Â
Permanent secretary of theÂ Ministry of Works, Mr. James Enebeli said the 10 roads in Ogbunabali had improved the economy of the area.Â
Spokesman for the Ogbunabali community, Chief Ogbam Ojima commended Governor Wike for the renewal of the area.
Caretaker Committee Chairman of Port Harcourt City Local Government Area, Mr. Charles Orlu assured the governorÂ that the people of the area will continue to support his administration.Â
