The Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, says the success and fortunes of his administration is hinged on the peoples support.
He made the assertion when he unveiled the “Alice Okolo Bridge”, which links Abonnema and Obonoma in Akuku-Toru Local Government Area, yesterday, as part of activities to mark his 100 days in office.
In the words of the governor, “We have come with the feeling and we are grateful to Akuku-Toru Local Government Area, particularly the Abonnema and Obonoma people which this road connects. Without your support it would not have been possible. It’s with your support that this project has been completed.”
Wike recalled that the project was part of his electioneering campaign promised, and thanked God for making it possible to achieve the feat in 100 days.
He, however, reassured them that whatever promise made to the people would be fulfilled, as he sought for their prayers and support for the administration to succeed.
Member representing Akuku-Toru Constituency 1 in the House of Assembly, Major Jack remarked that the project has impacted positively on the constituency, while commending the government for surpassing the expectation of the people.
In his speech earlier, Caretaker Chairman of the local government area, Hon. Odimabo Torukwein, described the development as historic, as the governor has demonstrated that he is a man that can be trusted.
According to him, the bridge will enhance economic activities and boost the revenue profile of the council.
He appealed to the government to site more projects in the area to sustain peace and employment for the people of the area.
On their part, the Akuku-Toru Council of Traditional Rulers, speaking through Chief Broadfield Michael-Jack commended the governor for the completing the project, recalling that the bridge had brought respite and economic boost to the people of the area.
Michael-Jack however called on the governor to fulfill promise on the rehabilitation of the Abonnema General Hospital, the Trans-Kalabari Road and sandfilling of Abonnema Town, as he pledged the people’s loyalty and support to his administration.
