Mayor of port Harcourt City. commends Governor Wike for projects execution in Port Harcourt City
….thanked him for naming Judges’ Quarters in Rivers State after a Rebisi son.
The Mayor of Port Harcourt City, Hon Victor Nyeche Ihunwo JP, has commended Governor Wike for his numerous projects in Port Harcourt City.
He also thanked the Governor for naming the Judges Quarters in Rivers State after a son of Rebisi, the Late Barrister Chinwe Aguma (S.A.N.), while asking the people to join their voices to thank the Governor, saying the honour done to their departed son indicates that he served the Governor and the state very well when he held sway as the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice.
The commendation and thank you message to the Governor was conveyed in his address to welcome the Governor and his entourage to the commissioning of the Rebisi flyover by Governor Wike’s special guest of honour, former Governor of Lagos State and present Minister of Works and Housing, His Excellency Babatunde Raji Fashola.
The Mayor recalled that the flyover project was flagged off in October 2019 with February 2021 scheduled for handover, while commending the Governor for the timely execution of the landmark project- which has not only transformed the landscape of the area but would help address the traffic nightmare commuters passed through plying the area in the past.
He said Port Harcourt City being the first port of call for many visitors into the state and a place housing over 60 percent of other Rivers State indigenes deserves all the projects in it, that have been executed and still being executed by His Excellency, while still asking for more.
“Your Excellency, even though we know that you have your projects in all the 23 LGAs in Rivers State, we are privileged to have more, and by the special grace of God we know you are going to do more- being a man whose thinking is just about flagging off and commissioning of projects,” he said.
“Having said that, Your Excellency, I would like to beg you to consider one of the roads you have not done in Diobu- after your inauguration as Governor in 2015 which you reconstructed all the roads in Diobu- remaining the Illoabuchi road leading to Ojoto and Eagle Island,” he appealed.
