Rivers PDP Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah Commends Gov Wike On Commencement Of Another Phase Of Construction/Dev. Projects In Rivers Rural Communities
The Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Rivers State chapter, Bro Felix Obuah has expressed satisfaction over the manner and commitment of the State Governor, His Excellency, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, in delivering dividends of Democracy to the people of the State, and lauded his various development initiatives, which he said have entered another phase, aimed at putting the State on the fast lane of development.
The PDP Chairman noted that since inception, the Wike-led government in Rivers State has not ceased on its drive to put smiles on the faces of all Rivers people, as this has given new look to the State infrastructure, starting with total revamping of moribund public facilities/infrastructure deliberately abandoned by the immediate past administration under Rotimi Amaechi, construction of new roads and human capacity development in the State.
The initial development projects of the Wike led-government touched all sectors of the economy and public life in the State, including Education, Sports, Security, Electricity, Water supply, Tourism, Housing, Health, Payment of salaries of public servants, as at when due, Youths Empowerment, Restoration of the dignity of the judiciary, as well as Respect for the rule of law, Harmonious relationship between all arms of government, and return of peace in the State, which has resulted in the influx of investors and international business entrepreneurs into the State, Obuah observed.
He described the commencement of phase two of Wike development projects, which focuses more on giving new lease of life in the rural communities, as people- oriented, and that touching directly on the lives of people at the grassroots, adding that it is a step taken in line with the philosophy of the PDP, which believes in giving back to the people what belongs to them.
Bro. Obuah particularly acknowledged the flagging-off of the construction of several gigantic projects in most LGAs and rural communities outside the capital city, which include completion of the abandoned Ogoni – Andoni – Opobo/Nkoro Unity Road; construction of Olakwor –Afara-Nihi Road; rehabilitation of Okrika Internal Road in Okochiri, Okrika; reconstruction of the Igbo- Etche Road and construction of Chokocho- Umuechem- Ozuzu Road. Also to be reconstructed is the Ehimbu-Atali Road, all of which would be completed soon.
Expressing confidence in the ability of the Governor to deliver all of these on schedule, Bro Obuah noted that Gov Wike has shamed enemies of the State, who have continued to make efforts not to allow peace reign in the State in trying to deny the people the benefit of voting for their governor, Barr Wike, and other PDP candidates during their respective elections.
Gov Wike, he said, has actually demonstrated his love for the people of the State and has denied himself lots of comfort to ensure he delivers on his campaign promises to the people, and he has done this by making the development of the State a non-negotiable priority of his administration.
The PDP Chairman reiterated the confidence of members of the Party in Gov Wike and members of the New Rivers Vision, assuring continued support and cooperation of the party in the State, calling on the people of the grassroots and indeed, all Rivers people to reciprocate the exceptional love and gesture extended to them by the Governor with their support.
“One way we all can encourage this apolitical, non-discriminatory, all-sector and people-oriented development efforts of Gov Wike to continue is to vote for all candidates of the PDP in the December 10, 2016, Legislative re-run elections in the State. Doing this will spur him the more, even though he naturally and genuinely conceived and embarked on the numerous projects which have now been brought to our rural doorsteps”, the PDP Chairman explained.
“Thank you our indefatigable Governor, keep doing the good work, more grease to your elbow”, Bro. Obuah said.
