Breaking: Wike adds one more brick to Khana LGA transformation
* Approves construction of Bori internal roads
* Moves Bori towards real semi urban status
Governor Nyesom Wike has announced that the Rivers State Government will embark on the construction of Bori internal roads.
This is despite the construction of dual carriage ways which run from Sakpenwa in Tail Local Government Area, through Bori, headquarters of Khana Local Government Area to Kono which links the Ogoni people with Opobo.
Governor Wike gave the assurance Saturday that he will build the internal roads while speaking at the political rally which took place at Bori Saturday afternoon.
Wike said he had fulfilled his electoral promises to the Ogoni nation and the people of Khana in particular, stating that the internal roads in Bori approved by him would further help to enhance the pace of development in the area.
He expressed confidence in his successor and urged the people to cast their votes in support of all the candidates presented by the Rivers PDP.
Speaking earlier, the PDP candidate, Siminalayi Fubara acknowledged the good works of the PDP and the Wike administration.
He said that in addition to what the PDP has done to open up the area, educational institutions would receive “touches” under his watch.
He assured that he would work deligently to improve the lot of the Rivers people.
Observers say that for many years, there have been plans to raise Bori and Ahoada to semi urban status.
The Wike administration which have built dual carriage ways in these semi urban centres is gradually fixing internal access routes in these areas that may help elevate these settlements to city status.
Said an urban planner in Port Harcourt, “What Wike is doing in rural Rivers State is very significant. Developments that are taking place will help disperse population, create development poles and decongest Port Harcourt as time goes on.
“We should be glad someone is thinking outside the box and providing infrastructure that can only result in a win-win situation for Rivers in the near future.”
Saturday’s rally was the second to take place in the Rivers East Senatorial District since the PDP hit the Campaign trail..
Friday, the Rivers PDP Campaign team stopped over at Oyigbo where the Governor revealed that he has approved the use of a state owned stadium for use by the Presidential Campaign Council of the Atiku Abubakar.
He said the release of the stadium to the PDP was at low cost to the PDP flagbearer or his team.
But the Governor revealed that the PCC would only take control of the facility 48 hours to the proposed presidential rally in the State.
The PDP which commenced its campaign at Omoku in the Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area has so far campaigned in five local Government Areas.
The Campaign moves to Omuma Local Government Area on Monday.
