Wike Setting The Pace For Infrastructure Devt – Okowa



Delta State governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has said his Rivers State counterpart, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wike is setting the pace in infrastructural development for others to follow.

Okowa, who disclosed this yesterday before commissioning the Mgbuoshimini Model Primary School and Mgbuoshimini Primary Healthcare Centre in Rumueme Kingdom, Obio/Akpor local government area of Rivers State, described Wike as one of the special heroes of the current democratic dispensation.

“He is re-defining the health sector, he is re-defining the education sector, re-defining the road infrastructural sector and other key areas of governance. He is one of our special heroes in Nigeria today. In re-defining these sectors, Governor Wike is setting the pace for us to follow,” he said of the River State governor.

Okowa added that River State came out tops on infrastructure in a national survey conducted, because Wike does not only execute projects, but ensures that the people are blessed with quality projects.

“Governor Wike is not only Mr Projects, he is Mr Quality Projects. When you see good things and you don’t admire them, you are either blind or a wicked man. I am excited to be here to witness these life changing project.”

The Delta State governor said Wike is committed to the service of River State people, pointing out that the Mgbuoshimini Primary Healthcare Centre is outstanding and may stand as a hospital in some states.

Also speaking, River State governor, Wike, thanked the people of Mgbuoshimini community for allowing the state government take over the disputed land which had claimed several lives. “I thank the host communities for allowing the state government take over the disputed land. When we came on board, this land had claimed lives and became a centre of criminality. We took over the land and constructed the school and health centre, which were lacking in the area.”

The River State governor informed that the ongoing road project in front of the health centre and model primary school will be completed before the end of the year. He commended Agip Nigeria Limited for furnishing the hospital, urging them to do more for the community in terms of corporate responsibility.

Wike added that the market very close to the school and health centre will be re-located to create the right environment for the institutions  to serve the people.
