Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, yesterday commissioned 19 internal roads constructed by his administration in Elele-Alimini town of Emohua Local Government Area, as part of activities marking his third anniversary in office.
His Ekiti State counterpart, Ayo Fayose, joined in commissioning the roads constructed by Wike’s administration for the revival of the economy of the area.
Speaking during the commissioning, Wike said the roads were constructed in line with his campaign promise to the people of Elele-Alimini. He assured the people that the remaining two kilometres of roads in the town will be constructed by his administration.
He said: “I thank people of Elele-Alimini for their total support for my administration. When a community identifies with projects, it is easy to execute projects for them. As a result of the peace and unity in the area, we are going to give you a traditional stool as requested by the Elele-Alimini Council of Chiefs.”
The governor urged the people to protect their permanent voter’s cards, so they can vote credible leaders.
“With these projects, we are telling the world that we are prepared for governance. We didn’t come up with excuses. We are a government that fulfils promises,” he said.
He charged the people of Emohua council not to allow themselves to be deceived by alleged fake promises of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
On his part, Fayose lauded Wike for his commitment to the development of the state.
He said the roads will help in growing the economy of the area. He urged the people of Rivers State to support the PDP as APC has failed woefully.
The Ekiti state governor berated the APC Federal Government for deploying huge funds to rig the state’s governorship election. He said irrespective of the deployment of funds, the APC will lose the election.
He said Nigerians will sack President Muhammadu Buhari next year because of his failure in governance.
Commissioner for Works, Dum Dekor, said the 19 roads completed by the Wike administration in the area are of immense economic value to the people of Elele-Alimini.
