Governor Wike decries  politics of under-development by some Rivers politicians

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has decried the politics  of under-development being promoted by some politicians  from the state, saying that he will remain committed to develop the state despite plots to distract him.

Speaking while commissioning the
  Rukpokwu --Aluu Road and Rumuokoro Market and Park in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area on Thursday, Governor Wike said Rivers people must take note of those who are bent on frustrating  development  in the state.

The two projects were billed to be commissioned by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.  The Acting President  had earlier  commissioned two roads before leaving for Abuja.

Governor Wike said: "They are annoyed that our projects  are being commissioned. Their anger will not stop us from delivering projects for our people.

"We wrote to the Acting  President  to visit Rivers State to commission a number of projects on the 19th July, 2017. We got a response  that due to his crowded schedule  that day was not feasible.  They gave us 27th July.  The advance  team came in yesterday  and said there is also the commissioning  of Indorama.

"I heard on the radio that the other party wrote the Acting President  saying that the commissioning of projects make us shine. They have forgotten  that we shine because  God is with us and the numerous  projects that we execute for our people ".

At the Rukpokwu-Aluu road, the governor told the people that during the campaign he made two promises to the people , which he has fulfilled.

The governor urged the Market Women  trading along the Rumuokoro road to stop as they are expected to begin using the market.

Governor Wike  also asked the members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers to desist from picking passengers  on the road and start using the park in the market.

He said: "Now that we have opened the market, nobody should  trade on the roadside. Nobody should pick passengers  on the road. Henceforth we  will take action against  those who flout this order. "
