Wike commended for ridding Rivers of abandoned schemes

09 September 2015, 13:10

Rivers - The Rivers State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has commended Governor Nyesom Wike for decongesting the state of abandoned projects.

These, the party mocked, were the only legacy left behind by his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi.

“Notwithstanding that the enemies of the State and political opponents had cashed in on the promise to litter the State with abandoned projects amounting to billions of naira deficit, Wike has proved that he is the Governor for Rivers State and not for a particular party or group by ensuring that such projects that will impact positively on the people are completed, not minding the lean resources at his disposal,” Rivers PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah, said.

He said Wike had lived true to his electioneering campaign promise of leaving no abandoned projects in the state, irrespective of under whose administration such projects were started, since government is a continuum.

Obuah said the PDP-led government would not bask in the glory of its successes but continue to encourage meaningful projects that would better the lives of all Rivers people.

“This is what makes our party different from others who have turned morality on its head, to whom what was bad, became good, what is good, bad. Our opponents and critics have lost sight of the fact that human dignity and well-being lie in the heart of all progress which the PDP symbolizes,” Obuah said.

Obuah congratulated Wike for his nobility in victory and commitment to overall development of the state through meaningful and realizable infrastructural investments.

He assured the governor of the party’s support.

"At the end of his tenure, the evil men and prophets of doom will but take their rightful place in shame and agonizing melancholy."
