Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has declared that his administration is using the state’s share of the Paris Club refund to execute projects.
Governor Wike also stated that his administration would uplift the infrastructure of Isiokpo town and would not allow anyone to relegate the ancient Ikwerre city.
He spoke yesterday while flagging off road constructions in Isiokpo town.
Wike said that the state had passed the stage of merely paying salaries and pensions, adding: “The Paris Club refund they paid to us will be used to execute meaningful projects across the state.
“For us, we have passed the stage of payment of salaries and pensions. We have cleared all those and our focus for now is to roll out projects for the benefit of our people”.
He said that the administration was celebrating Christmas for the people of the state through the roll out of strategic projects.
The governor said that he would remain focused in the delivery of projects and quality programmes, stressing that he will never be distracted by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said that the APC-led Federal Government has abandoned Rivers State, with no single meaningful project executed in the state.
Commenting on the Isiokpo internal roads, Governor Wike said that the state government will construct and reconstruct 22 kilometres of roads in the town.
He said that a city with a rich heritage like Isiokpo, could not be destroyed by the hatred of the immediate past government.
