Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has assured that all projects started by his administration will be completed.
He said in the course of the four years of his first term, no project would be abandoned, adding that he had mapped out strategies to apply funds for their completion.
The governor said this after he inspected road projects in Port Harcourt, Obio/Akpor, Ikwere and Etche local government areas, on Saturday.
He added that all key projects abandoned by the immediate past administration would also be completed by his administration.
“Today’s project inspection has been fruitful. We are happy at the pace of work at the different sites visited and the people are also happy. The reception we get is an encouragement to do more for the people.
“Our first year anniversary will be a celebration of wonderful projects executed by this administration. Most of the roads visited today will be completed by the end of May,” he said.
Meanwhile, the governor has directed the chairman of the Local Government Service Commission, Chief Azubuike Mmerukini, to coordinate the handing over formalities by the local government caretaker committee chairmen to their heads of local government.
He said the chairman of the commission should, in conjunction with the Heads of Local Government Areas, coordinate the preparation of lists of staff being owed by the council boss and the number of months they owe their workers.
This superseded an earier directive by the governor, on Friday, that the dissolved council chairmen should hand over to Heads of Personnel Management (HPMs).
