The Lawmaker listed some of the projects as the massive road construction and rehabilitation, streets and traffic lights which had been a day-dream for the past eight years, education for the common people even at the grass-root. Health-Care delivery with the executive bill sent to the Assembly for the establishment of another state hospital to complement the Braithwaite memorial Special Hospital (BMSH) and the improved transport sector, despite the economic recession.
The Chief Whip who also scored Wike high in Commerce and Industry noted that priority attention given to sports with Rivers United playing a continental march against Mali that earned it second position in the Nigerian Professional league, the Rivers Angels for emerging 2016 female football champions in Nigeria, as well as youth development and security.
Describing the working relationship between the Executive and the Legislature as very cordial, Bipi said lawmakers always carried out their duties without fear or favour adding that the executive does not interfere with the functions of the Legislators who have been working harmously.
