The celebration of the outstanding developmental strides of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike continued on Monday as the State Government rolled out seven new roads at Amadi-Ama community in Port Harcourt metropolis.
The seven new Internal Roads which have opened the densely populated Amadi-Ama Suburb were commissioned by the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.
Speaking during the commissioning ceremony at Amadi-Ama, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike said the roads were constructed in fulfilment of promises made to the people of the area.
“When we came here for our campaigns, the Amadi-Ama people promised to support us. They kept their own side of the bargain. These roads represent our commitment to the development of this community,” he said.
The governor thanked the Amadi-Ama people for their support for the contractrors to deliver the roads in line with approved specifications.
He stated that the State Government is using high level companies to construct projects in the area.
Commissioning the seven new internal roads, Deputy Senate President , Senator Ike Ekweremadu said Governor Wike has redefined the governance process, reaching out to the electorate through projects.
He said that the Rivers State Governor will be re-elected on the premise of his performance, noting that all those ganging up against Governor Wike will fail woefully.
He noted that for two weeks Rivers State has been in the news for positive reasons, as daily commissioning of great projects have taken over the airwaves.
“I can see the feeling of satisfaction on the faces of the people. When you get the opportunity to serve, we must serve the people to the best of our ability. Governor Wike is serving the good people of Rivers State. By this time next year, his mandate would have been renewed by the people of Rivers State. By the time he concludes his second term, Rivers State would have been improved beyond expectations,” Senator Ekweremadu said.
Rivers State Works Commissioner, Mr Dum Dekor said the roads were flagged off for construction on August 8, 2017 and delivered seven months later through dedicated funding.
He said though the area is built up, the contractors applied the best professional standard.
There was a goodwill message by the spokesman for the contractors, Mr Robinson Ndioko.
Caretaker Committee Chairman of Port Harcourt City Local Government Area, Prince Amadi Oparaeli thanked the Rivers State Governor for his outstanding developmental strides and commitment to projects in the area.
