Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said his administration will rehabilitate the state’s School of Public Health Nursing.
This was as the governor berated management of the institution for its inability to maintain the school’s infrastructure.
Speaking during inspection of the school, yesterday, Wike said comprehensive rehabilitation of the school may require shutting it down for a while.
The governor was accompanied on inspection of projects by Senator George Thompson Sekibo.
Wike expressed sadness that the management of the school refused to take basic sanitary measures to ensure the school’s environment is conducive for teaching and learning.
He said: “What I saw at Rivers State School of Public Health Nursing was quite disappointing. The environment of the school is very unkempt and the buildings are in bad condition.
“We will revive and rehabilitate the school and bring it up to the standard needed to train nurses.”
Also, governor Wike inspected ongoing work at the Rumuokoro Market and Bus Park in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.
He commended the contractor for the quality of work done, and said the project, when completed, will resolve traffic congestion in that area.
The governor also inspected the construction of the State Ecumenical Centre in Port Harcourt.
In an interview with newsmen, Sekibo said Governor Wike is recreating Rivers State through well-planned projects.
He said the number of projects in the offing across Rivers State would require over two months of daily commissioning programmes, long after the second year anniversary.
