Abuja - Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, said his administration was determined to complete infrastructural development projects in the state.

Wike stated this on Tuesday while addressing residents of Borikiri suburb of Port Harcourt during his regular project inspection.

He said his administration’s interventions were focused on the people and the need to make them reap the fruits of good governance.

The governor said the era of abandoned projects was a thing of the past in Rivers State as his administration would complete all inherited projects and drive all those started by his administration to a conclusion.

Wike said the state government had engaged quality contractors who have the necessary capacity to deliver on schedule.

“We are working round the clock to deliver on the massive infrastructural development we promised the people of the state. I am happy that that our people are cooperating with the contractors. That is why all projects are being executed satisfactorily. I urge out people to keep up the spirit as we strive to revive the state,” Wike said.

The governor inspected the Abonnema Wharf road under construction, the New Road in Borikiri and old Aba road in Rumukurusi.

Senior Project Supervisor with Julius Berger, Base Yzinana, assured the governor that the company would continue to deliver results.
