Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that the state-wide projects of his administration have made positive impact on the lives of the people, despite the economic downturn.

The governor and the leaders spoke on Monday after inspecting ongoing projects in PortHarcourt and Obio/ AkporLocal Government Areas.
Governor Wike said: “Our projects are spread across the 23 Local Government Areas of the state. We are touching the lives of the people, improving their living condition.
“We go for projects that will positively impact the lives of the people. That is why they appreciate us everywhere we go. For this administration, we shall continue to judiciously apply scarce resources”.
The governor noted that his administration is rebuilding all the constituencies of the state because the immediate past APC administration failed to use the resources available to it.
“If the immediate past APC administration had done anything meaningful, we wouldn’t have same responsibility of still visiting same communities.
“Instead of applauding us, they make unfounded allegations that we are concentrating on Ikwerre speaking area. It is unfortunate because we are working across the state “, Governor Wike said.
In an interview after the project inspection , Former Acting National Chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus said governor delivers projects to all communities of the state.

He said: “Rivers State has transformed into a work in progress. We are lucky to have a governor that has improved the art of governance. Aside projects execution, human capital development is on and this will lead us into Governor Wike’s second term “.
