Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has bragged that nobody will talk about the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, with his performance in the office since he took over seat.
Governor Wike made the boast during the commissioning of the construction of the Ogbum-nu-Abali/Eastern-Bypass Road project on Tuesday, in Port Harcourt.
He alleged that the previous administration politicized the reconstruction of the road and failure to carry out the project.
The governor said he looked beyond such politicking by interfacing with the people to understand the economic benefits of a dualised road in the city centre.
Wike stated that there would be a spike in the value of property in the Ogbum-nu-Abali area as a result of the imbalance in the level of infrastructural development around the area.
“I know that the people of Ogbum-nu-Abali resisted the dualisation of this road because of lack of information. When I met with the community leaders, they said look, they have houses bequeathed to them by their grandparents.
“I told them that whether they like it or not, if I don’t dualise it today, tomorrow somebody else will do it. And you don’t know who is coming.
“So, it’s better done now that I am a governor than when you don’t know who is coming. And the economic benefit of this road is too much, which you may not understand now”, He added.
