The Rivers State Executive Council has approved the 2018 budget for presentation to the State House of Assembly.
The state commissioner for Information and Communication, Hon. Emma Okah, disclosed this yesterday in Port Harcourt while addressing journalists shortly after the first executive council meeting for 2018.
Okah stated that the council extensively discussed the drafts of the 2018 budget from all the Ministries, Departments and Agencies.
He said modalities have been concluded for the formal presentation by Rivers State Governor, Chief Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike on the floor of the Assembly.
Speaking further, the commissioner stated that council frowned at the situation where some communities fail to protect public infrastructure.
He said communities that allow government infrastructure to be destroyed will face the consequences.
Okah also informed that communities that fail to protect contractors executing projects will lose such projects.
He said Wike assured that the administration will continue to deliver quality projects and programmes that will improve the lives of Rivers people.
