Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has assured the people of the state that his administration will maintain the tempo of projects delivery after the celebration of his first year in office.
The governor noted that in his second year in office he will focus on rehabilitation of selected secondary schools, general hospitals and the development of rural communities. Addressing journalists after inspecting road projects in Etche, Ikwerre, Obio /Akpor and Port Harcourt Local Government Areas on Tuesday, Governor Wike expressed happiness that Rivers State is one of the few states where execution of projects have taken a centre stage.
The governor said that the way the people of the state appreciate the efforts of the administration everywhere he went on inspection, is an encouragement to do more. He said: "When the people are happy that we are working non-stop, that makes me happy. We are fulfilling the campaign promises we made to the people. Ours is to continue to do what we are supposed to do, irrespective of the economic downturn.
"I am happy that after one year we have worthy projects to show to our people. We shall not slow down. We will start to renovate selected secondary schools and general hospitals. We shall also flag off the construction of an amusement park for children in the state."
He advised residents of Obio /Akpor and Port Harcourt Local Government Areas to be vigilant and watch over newly energised street lights to stop vandals from throwing the towns into darkness.
He said that the administration will continue to be accountable to the people at all times.
