Youths in Rivers State under the aegis of Rivers Youths for Continuity and Consolidation (R.Y.C.C) have stated their commitment to closely monitor and tackle inefficiency and maladministration in governance in the state.
This is part of a communiqué issued by the body at the end of its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Port Harcourt on Monday.
According to the communiqué, youths of the state, having acknowledged their role as “major stakeholders” in what they christened the “Rivers Project,” have deemed it fit to closely monitor developments in the state.
Having been convinced of the leadership of the Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi led administration, the body thus commend the efforts of the state government in such areas as restoration of peace, safety and security of lives and properties in the state.
The RYCC also expressed their delight over the level of human and infrastructural development of the state government since its assumption of office in 2007.
Specifically, the RYCC executive identified the Greater Port Harcourt City Project, the construction of the state-of-primary and secondary schools in the state, the scholarship awards to indigenes and construction of modern health centres in the local government areas.
The body also identified the reconstruction of the Brathwaite Memorial Specialist Hospital (BMSH), roads projects, improvement of power supply and repository of the transport sector through the Port Harcourt City bus service as well as the provision of Taxi Cabs for empowerment to youths and the less priviledged for Rivers indigenes,
