I won’t leave uncompleted projects for my successor – Wike

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has promised to complete all projects initiated by his administration before the end of his tenure.

Wike spoke on Tuesday when he led a former Secretary to the Federal Government, Anyim Pius Anyim, to inaugurate the Rumuekini/Aluu Road, traversing Obio/Akpor and Ikwerre Local Government Areas.

A statement by his media aide, Kelvin Ebiri, said Wike’s successor would initiate his own projects, instead of being burdened by uncompleted projects.

The statement reads: “There is nothing that will be given to you that will be too much. Nobody that will succeed me will complete any of my projects because I will complete all my projects before I go. I won’t leave any project burden for my successor. When the new person comes, let him initiate his own projects.

“Before now, APC said we are building roads only in Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor council. Now, they can’t talk again. We have inaugurated projects in Khana, Gokana, Eleme. We were also at Akuku-Toru and Emohua. We are a government for every Rivers person and every local government.”

Anyim said he was delighted to associate with Wike because he has shown, through his projects, that he is truly bonded with Rivers people and know their needs.

He said: “Governor Wike, because you commission projects, it is certain no project will be abandoned. I am proud to identify with the progress that you have made.

“I am proud to belong to the PDP family. It is the spirit of PDP that is at work in your government and that spirit of PDP will come to work in Nigeria…”
