Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has stated that his administration will complete the dualisation of the Elelenwo-Akpajo Road before its third anniversary.
Speaking during the End of Year/Elelenwo Day of Thanksgiving at the Saint Mark Anglican Church, Elelenwo yesterday, Wike said the road would be inaugurated as part of the administration’s third anniversary celebrations.
He said the refusal of the immediate past Governor of Rivers State to construct the all-important road presented him with the opportunity to ensure the construction of the road by a first class contractor.
“Thank God the previous administration failed to construct this important road. Their failure has given us the privilege to dualise this road. God’s time is always the best.
“The road will be completed before our third year anniversary. This road will be fitted with street lights to enhance the security of the area at night,” he said.
He assured the people of Elelenwo that the state government would continue to execute projects in the area.
While thanking them for their support for his administration, the governor wished them a prosperous 2018.
In his sermon, Anglican Bishop of Evo Diocese, Rt. Reverend Innocent Ordu, thanked the governor for his good works for the people of the state.
He prayed God to protect and sustain the Rivers State Governor to continue his service to the state.
Wike later inaugurated the new palace of the Nyeweli Elelenwo, Eze Sunny Weli Chuku.
Highpoint of the occasion was the presentation of an award of excellence to the Rivers State Governor by the Anglican Youth Fellowship (AYF) of Saint Mark Anglican Church, Elelenwo.
