Former vice president Atiku Abubakar, has said the Rivers State governor, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has continued to win the best governor’s award because of his state wide delivery of relevant projects.
Atiku stated this yesterday while commissioning internal roads constructed by the Wike led administration in Isiokpo, headquarters of Ikwerre local government area of Rivers State.
The former vice president stated that Wike has won the “Governor of the Year Award “ consecutively since 2016 because he is executing projects to improve the lives of the people.
He said, “Since May this year as part of the Third Anniversary of Governor Wike’s administration, one project is commissioned each day. The Isiokpo internal roads form part of the projects.
“No wonder, Governor Wike keeps winning the “Best Governor of the Year “ consecutively since 2016. No governor has achieved that record. It will be very difficult to beat that record.
“I am extremely proud of Governor Wike’s achievements and we are proud of the governor’s leadership.”
Atiku noted that he appreciates the quality of work done so far by the governor because he lived in Port Harcourt and understands the profound nature of the projects delivered.
In his remarks at the commissioning ceremony, Wike said that the second phase of Isiokpo internal roads will be completed before the end of this year.
The governor also announced that the Ibaa-Isiokpo Road will also be completed and commissioned by the end of the year.
He stated that the commissioning of projects will be sustained because of the need to keep Nigerians informed on the massive infrastructural regeneration in the state.
Wike said the previous administration in the state could not commission projects because no projects existed.
The governor said, “When we make promises, we fulfill our promises. We are not like those who make promises and give excuses why they cannot be achieved.”
He urged Isiokpo people to reciprocate the developmental strides of his administration by ensuring they support the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019.
