Projects ongoing to restore Port Harcourt's lustre

14 December 2015, 12:53Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Rivers State Government will continue its drive to resuscitate Port Harcourt to its old status as the Garden City, Governor Nyesom Wike said.

“We want to turn Port Harcourt and its environs around and re-establish the Garden City that will be a pride of the nation,” Wike said.

He said the administration would use the dry season to accomplish the revival programme within the limits of available resources.

In Diobu, out of the 22 kilometres of roads being reconstructed, the administration had achieved 17 kilometres.

“The remaining aspects of the Diobu roads have reached 70 percent completion.”

CAJ established that the state government had constructed about 100 kilometers of roads in the Operation Zero Potholes programme and Urban Renewal programme of the administration.

“The mandate the people freely gave to us will be utilised effectively for their wellbeing. People came out overwhelmingly and voted for us and we are doing what they want. The people are happy. They appreciate what we are doing for them,” Wike said.
