In continuation of the state-wide roll out of projects, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike on Friday flagged off the reconstruction of Oyigbo Market Road by Afam Junction in Oyigbo Local Government Area.
The governor also kick-started the construction of Tap to Iriebe Road in Oyigbo Local Government Area.
Speaking during the flag off the two roads, Governor Wike said that the time has come for the people of the area to witness the full transformational power of his administration.
He said: “Recently, while I appeared on a live radio programme , several people from Oyigbo called to inquire about roads in the area.
“This is Oyigbo’s time for critical road projects. Aside these two roads being flagged off today, the Camp Mbano to Iriebe Road is nearing completion “.
Governor Wike charged the people of Oyigbo to always vote leaders who are committed to the development of their communities.
He said: “As far as we are concerned, whatever the people of Oyigbo are entitled to, we shall give it to them.
“I urge the contractors to cooperate with the communities for the early delivery of these projects. For the Oyigbo people, my advice is that you should not listen to those who failed you in the past”.
The governor charged INEC to ensure that the votes of the people count in 2019, as that is the only way Nigerians will benefit from democracy.
“INEC should make Nigeria the big brother by doing things that are right especially conducting free and fair elections. INEC should remove shame from Nigeria. Let your result sheet be the only result sheet. Not that the police will have a different result sheet for fraudulent purposes “, he said.
Commissioner of Works, Mr Dum Dekor said the two roads are in very deplorable condition. He said the reconstruction will energise the economy of Oyigbo
He said the two road will created 300 additional jobs for the people. The Works Commissioner called on the Oyigbo people to support the contractor.
Caretaker Committee Chairman of Oyigbo Local Government Area, Mr Ugochukwu Ejiri said the people are happy with the flag off of the reconstruction of Oyigbo Market Road by Afam Junction.
