Despite the electioneering period, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has continued the funding and delivery of key projects in different parts of the state.
The governor remains committed to the completion of ongoing projects in the interest of the people of the state. In Rivers West and Rivers South-East Senatorial Districts, key projects are ongoing to improve the living condition of the people.
Speaking on projects delivery recently, Wike said that his administration will never abandon any project because the revival of Rivers State is more important than any other consideration.
The governor said that the reason why he is in politics is to move the state forward and transform the lives of the people.
In Rivers West Senatorial District, Government Secondary School Okarki in Ahoada West Local Government Area flagged off for reconstruction by Governor Wike is progressing satisfactorily.
The people of the area are happy with the progress of work. They endorsed Governor Wike for a second term, stating that he needs time to continue with his projects delivery.
Honourable Hope Ikiriko, Chairman of Ahoada West Local Government Area, captures the importance of Governor Wike's projects in the area.
He said: The governor has done two basic projects in Ahoada West Local Government Area. One in the educational sector and the other in basic infrastructure, which is a road project. Government Secondary School in Okarki is an old school that has been there since the 60s and subsequent administrations just watched the school, go down and decay. The school was no more,in fact we can't even remember students who go there again, just one structure that was there but he came in and saw that the dreams of our founding fathers were eroded and he took it upon himself to bring the school back to life.
"So what we have there now is a complete high school facility, which has to do with laboratory, classrooms, administration blocks, hostels, dining, ICT and sports facilities. It has brought back the basic dream and vision of any government as it was was before,if you go there now the project that started few months ago is nearing completion.
"The other one is the road project at Ojoko. The road was abandoned for so many years. Our governor now has come back, to reconstruct the road. If you go there now, it is a wonderful road. These two projects, I can say, if you carry out the need assessment in the area you will realise that these are the two major things that the people need. That is why I give credit to our Governor for feeling the pains of the people. He does not just site projects here and there. He sites projects that impact on the people, like the Secondary School it has brought up several great men in Ahoada West LGA."
Also, Mr. Gift Ade from Okarki community thanked the Rivers State Governor for his investment in the reconstruction of the Government Secondary School, Okarki. He said that the community will repay him by voting massively for him in 2019.
Ade said: "We are voting him to power for him to continue his job. Previously the place was not functioning. The building was not in good order. They are bringing back the secondary school to life. We pray that God should give him more grace so that he will continue doing our projects. He is trying for us,he even promised to do our road. We thank Governor Wike very much, we welcome him,by 2019,we will endorse him to continue".
