Don’t be deceived by APC/NDDC attempt to steal our project, Wike tells Etche people

Wike inspecting the Igwuruta -Chokocho roadRivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has charged the people of Etche Local Government Area not to be moved by the attempted  daylight  robbery of the ongoing construction of the Igwuruta -Chokocho -Okehi road by the APC and the NDDC.

Addressing the people of Etche on Thursday after inspecting the Igwuruta – Chokocho – Okehi, Governor Wike said it was unfortunate  that the APC  and NDDC officials attempted  to claim a road being constructed  by the Rivers State Government after the immediate past administration in the state  neglected for 8 years.

He said: “This road has nothing to do with the NDDC. I am happy that you did not believe  their lies when they came for campaign.  The Rivers State Government flagged off the construction  of  this road, awarded it to a reputable  construction company and today it is almost  finished.

“This road will be  commissioned this month. We remain  committed to  the  development of Etche. We have concluded  the process for the commencement of Igbo-Etche road. Again,  don’t be deceived by the fake promise of the APC  on that road. ”

He commended  Etche people for staying  away from  the  APC campaign  rally in the area as a form of protest over their  maltreatment by the ruling party.

“The APC leaders were able to campaign  in Etche because my administration  has opened up the area by constructing  this road. While they governed the State for eight years, they left this road to become  impassable “, he said.

Governor Wike also inspected the  ongoing construction of hostels, classrooms, laboratories and libraries  at the Government Girls Secondary School, Rumuokwuta.

The governor who was accompanied by the State Education Commissioner, Prof Kaniye Ebeku expressed satisfaction  with the quality of work being done by the contractor.

At the Pleasure Park  where the contractor  is developing state-of-the-art recreational facilities, Governor Wike urged the  contractor to maintain  the  pace of  work to meet  up the scheduled time for completion.

The governor  also inspected  ongoing reconstruction of the Tam David West Boulevard  (OBIRI-IKWERRE ROAD ).
