Rivers Rerun: Wike Mocks Dakuku,flags off Opobo General Hospital


In a move to create land access to two major riverine Local Government Areas, Rivers State Governor , Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has flagged-off the completion of Ogoni -Andoni-Opobo-Nkoro Unity Road .

The road which was initiated by Former Governor Peter Odili, was abandoned  by  immediate past Governor Rotimi Amaechi .

Governor Wike also on Tuesday flagged off  the  rehabilitation of General Hospital , Ngo in the headquarters of Andoni Local Government Area .

In addition , the governor flagged off the rehabilitation of the General Hospital , Opobo in Opobo-Nkoro Local Government Area .

Flagging off the completion  of the Ogoni Andoni-Opobo-Nkoro Unity Road , Governor Wike assured the people of  Andoni and Opobo-Nkoro  that within the next 18 months , they will  be  driving home to their respective communities .

He regretted that the immediate past Amaechi administration despite getting  N20billion  to N25billion monthly from the Federation Account , failed to embark on meaningful developmental projects .

He assured that the Ogoni-Andoni-Opobo-Nkoro Unity Road will be  consistently  funded because his administration  remains committed  to  the  economic development of the riverine communities .

He said: “This road is a major economic  intervention  for the riverine communities of  Opobo and Andoni Local Government Areas.  It also cuts across Khana Local Government Area .

“This project  is a  major empowerment scheme for the people of these three local government areas .  Our people  in the riverine  communities can now drive home.

“I am happy that the 2015 APC Governorship candidate who was a Works Commissioner , but refused to construct  the  road to his home local government area, will now drive home”.

Flagging off the rehabilitation of General Hospitals , Ngo in Andoni Local Government Area and Opobo , Governor Wike said  that he was reconstructing  the  health facilities  to create access  to quality healthcare for the two two riverine communities .
