Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday commissioned two roads the Chokocho-Umuechem-Ozuzu road and Chokocho -Igbo-Etche-Rumuokurushi Inter- Change, executed by the administration of Governor Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike in Etche local government area of Rivers State.
Speaking at the ceremony, Osinbajo, who declared that the Federal Government will support every effort to improve the living condition of Nigerians, lauded Wike for embarking on pro-people projects.
While charging leaders to always work for their people, the Vice President stated that is the only way that the people can feel the impact of government.
He “We must always look for ways to advance the interest of our people. We are greater together than apart. Today is a very happy day. We will always have happy days.
“Here with us to commission the project of the Rivers State Government is Senator Magnus Abe, who is from another party. The Federal Government supports every effort that benefits the people.”
Earlier, Rivers State Governor, Chief Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike said the two roads were constructed to revive the economy of Etche local government area of the state.
The governor stated that the roads were death traps and completely damaged the economy of the area as they could not take their agricultural products to the market.
He said, “The condition of the two roads to be commissioned today were so bad that the people of Etche could not use them to transport their agricultural products to markets.”
