According to him, the scenic beauty of the State capital is being enhanced while man-hours lost on the road due to traffic bottlenecks are being reduced.

Wike explained that since last week the Rivers State Government has been commissioning projects on a daily basis.

Wike assured Rivers people that the process would  not relent until all ongoing infrastructural facilities built for their benefit are put in place.

The Governor also announced that his administration would any moment from now commission the first phase of the Trans Kalabari Road.

He noted that although the project which is expected to open unlimited access to the Kalabari areas has been on the drawing board over the years, no administration until he came on board had dared to embark on it.

Recall that during the ground breaking ceremony, Wike had assured the Kalabaris that he would make sure that the first phase is delivered under his watch.

Governor Wike also announced that as part of efforts to transform Ogoniland and turn Bori into a major city, the second phase of the Sakpenwa Road which is under construction would be delivered soon.

Wike observed that some Rivers leaders whose names he did not drop were exhibiting signs of greed.

He said that as a result, they had turned against their own State in search of morsels of bread.

At the appropriate time, he said, government will release the names of Rivers leaders who have been prime beneficiaries of his administration.

The Governor said government was grateful to the Orochiri community because of the way they cooperated with the contractors.
