Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has commissioned 16 completed world-class projects during his just concluded two-day visit to Rivers State.
Projects commissioned by General Obasanjo during the visit include the G.U. Ake road at Eliozu; Okporo road connecting Artillery and the East-West road; Elekahia-Rumuomasi road; Ken Saro-Wiwa road; Ambassador Nne Kurubo Model Secondary School at Ebube, Eleme; a Health Centre at Akpajo; Songhai Farm, Bunu Tai off Afam Road; Tai Model Primary School; and Banana Plantation Project, Afam Power Station, 2×60 MV/132/33 KVA – Elelenwo Sub-Injection Station. Others include No. 1 Field (Mini Football Stadium); No. 2 Field (Basketball Indoor Hall and Athletes Hostel); No. 5 Field (Tennis Court/Volleyball Court and Spectators Stands); St. Andrew’s Primary School, Mile 1, Diobu; Prof. Kelsey Harrison Hospital, Emenike Street, Mile 1, Diobu; and Buguma Modern Fish Farm, Asari Toru LGA.
Hailing Governor Amaechi for his administration’s developmental strides, Chief Olusegun stated: “I came to see developments and I have seen developments and I will confess developments! What I have seen is worth declaring! The area of health, education, Agriculture, Sports and road infrastructure is worth declaring. When I see development I earmark, eye mark and mouthmark.”
The APC commended Obasanjo for summoning the courage to undertake the trip despite what it dubbed “concerted efforts” by Supervising Minister of Education, Chief Nyesom Wike, and some other mischievous members of his party, PDP, to discourage him from going ahead with the visit.
According to the State APC Interim Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, “This act shows his love and care for Rivers State. General Obasanjo can see that contrary to Chief Nyesom Wike’s assertion that all the projects executed by Gov. Amaechi are sited in Port Harcourt to the detriment of other local government areas, 75% of the projects commissioned are in other LGAs of the State. We are grateful to former President Obasanjo for accepting the invitation to come and commission these high-class and people-oriented projects executed by the Chibuike Amaechi administration, just as we congratulate Governor Amaechi for putting his critics, who have been accusing him of under-performance and favouritism to shame.”
He disclosed that the APC leadership in the State has consequently resolved to declare Governor Amaechi “Rivers State Emancipator and Development Pillar.”
APC Rivers commended Governor Amaechi for soldiering on in spite of the odds and delivering the dividends of democracy to the people of Rivers.
“We assure PDP and President Jonathan that they will pay dearly for this wickedness during the 2015 elections as we are mobilizing the people to ensure that PDP is thoroughly beaten in Rivers State in future elections,” Dr. Ikanya concluded.
