Speaking with The Tide while conducting newsmen round the projct sites in Diobu, on wenesday, the CCECC Public relations Officer (PRO) on operation Zero Pothole project, Robsn Ndiokho, said that the positive impact recorded on the project was occasioned by the 24 hours intensive work drive to meet the people’s aspiration and the state governments determined efforts to end potholes in the state.
A resident of Azikiwe Street in Diobu, Mrs Nyemachi Wobo, who spoke to The Tide, expressed happiness on the success recorded on the job so far by the CCECC in this regard, saying that “we are happy with Governor Wike for this people-oriented gesture to remember our street and the most neglected area of Port Harcourt called Diobu, it is a thing of joy”.
She commended the Chinese Company, CCECC, for doing a good job, especially opening up drainages (gutters) that have been blocked over the years.
A printing press operator at Ojoto street, Elder Godwin Nelson, lauded Governor Wike for the roads rehabilitation initiative, noting that with this gesture Wike has shown concern over the plight and expectations of the inhabilitants of Diobu.
“Customers can now drive to almost all printing press offices, as CCECC works were day and night to meet the target”, he added.
A student of the Rivers State University of Science and Technology (RSUST) Noami Jaja expressed satisfaction on the good job done by CCECC on the poor drainage system along the street leading to the University back gate, saying “this RSUST back gate used to be flooded whenever heavy rains fall, but now CCECC has corrected the poor drainage system and the say God bless governor of the people, Chief Wike, for remembering the street”.
