Wike provides Rivers rebuilding update

03 November 2015, 08:51Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike said the alleged propaganda by critics would not deter his administration's plans to rebuild the state.

Amid criticism by the aspirant to his position, Dakuku Peterside, Wike said he was focusing on the task of reviving a region ravaged by alleged corruption of the immediate past All Progressives Congress administration.

The People's Democratic Party official said the mandate of the people of given during the governorship elections in April tasked him to use the resources of the state to develop all parts of the state and all sectors of the economy.

“Despite inheriting a state crippled by the immediate past administration in the state, our refreshing governance initiatives have set Rivers State on the path of development," said Wike.

He added that the current administration had started the process of rehabilitating major public primary and secondary schools across the state after reopening all public schools on account of the debt owed by the former administration.

Wike said the roads constructed and being rehabilitated by the administration across the state were well over 150 kilometres.

He said the economy of Rivers State was in good health with the state government meeting its financial obligations to workers, pensioners and contractors.

The Rivers polls tribunal last month meanwhile annulled the election of Wike following a challenge by Peterside who cited violence and vote rigging.
