Secretary to Rivers State Government (SSG), Chief Kenneth Kobani has declared that the superlative infrastructural development of the Wike administration has revived the hitherto moribund economy of the state.
Addressing journalists in Port Harcourt on Saturday, Chief Kobani said that the strategic execution of projects in different parts of the state has empowered the less privileged and the people a new lease of life.
Chief Kobani said that Governor Wike in the past seven months has executed projects and programmes contained in his development blueprint, the New Rivers Vision, with the people of the state being the prime beneficiaries.
He particularly commended the Governor’s commitment to the development of the state despite the economic downturn in the country.
According to the Secretary to the Rivers State Government, Governor Wike has completed more than eighty kilometres of roads in four local government areas of the state and has started the implementation of the roads connecting local government areas.
He said : “We have a governor who is the best in this dispensation. He is the only governor currently executing high class capital projects in the country. This is because Governor Wike is committed to the implementation of the New Rivers Vision Development Blueprint and he has been able to prudently manage the scarce resources that have accrued to the state.
“The flag off of the Igwurita-Chokoko-Etche road is the beginning of Governor Wike’s reach out to all the other local government areas of the state. The Sakpenwa-Bori road is also scheduled to commence while the governor has introduced a boarding school system to improve learning in our secondary schools “.
He said that Governor Wike transformed Rivers State into a centre of positive development despite inheriting a debt ridden state where all arms of government were crippled due to the poor leadership skills of the immediate past administration in the state.
Chief Kobani said : “Governor Wike’s popularity is at an all-time high because he has worked for the people. He has shown that the people made the right choice by voting for him in April 11, 2015. He has proved to be a worthy governor who has given leadership a new meaning, impacting the lives of the people positively “.
