Dissatisfied with the pace of work at the Government Girls Secondary  School, Rumuokwuta in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has threatened  to  sanction the State Commissioner for Education, Professor Kaniye Ebeku.

“I am sad at the pace of work in the Government Girls Secondary School, Rumuokwuta. Where will these children  learn when schools resume in September?

“I am disappointed  in the Education Commissioner. I have summoned  him to  explain the slow pace of the work in this school. We will not allow any  official  slow down the pace of  development  of projects, ” the governor warned.

At the Diete Spiff Civic Centre, Port Harcourt,  venue of the 2016 NBA National Conference, Governor Wike  expressed satisfaction  with the quality  of  work done at the auditorium  and the committee rooms of the facility.

He said: “Rivers State is ready to host the 2016 NBA National Conference.  The Civic Centre  is ready and we have all logistics and security  arrangements in place “.

The governor announced  that  the  NBA Law Centre  would  also be  commissioned in the course of the NBA National Conference.

The governor commended the contractors handling road projects in Obio/Akpor and Ikwerre local government areas. He also noted that the construction of the Port Harcourt Pleasure Park is progressing  as scheduled. He also inspected the ongoing construction of the second Nkpogu Bridge in Port Harcourt Local Government Area.
