Rivers State governor, Mr Nyesom Wike, has said that his administration will complete the dualization of Elelenwo-Akpajo Road before its third anniversary.
Speaking during the End of Year/Elelenwo Day of thanksgiving at Saint Mark Anglican Church, Elelenwo, yesterday, Governor Wike said the road will be commissioned as part of the administration’s third anniversary celebrations.
He said the refusal of the immediate past governor of Rivers State to construct the all-important road presented him with the opportunity to ensure the construction of the road by a first class contractor.
He said: “Thank God, the previous administration failed to construct this important road. Their failure has given us the privilege to dualise the road. God’s time is always the best.
“The road will be completed before our third year anniversary. This road will be fitted with street lights to enhance the security of the area at night.”
He assured the people of Elelenwo that the Rivers State Government will continue to execute projects in the area.
While thanking them for their support for his administration, the governor wished them a prosperous 2018.
In his sermon, Anglican Bishop of Evo Diocese, Rt Reverend Innocent Ordu thanked the Rivers State Governor for his good works for the people of the state.
He prayed God to protect and sustain the Rivers State Governor to continue his service to the state.
Governor Wike later commissioned the New Palace of the Nyeweli Elelenwo, Eze Sunny Weli Chuku.
Highpoint of the occasion was the presentation of an award of excellence to the Rivers State Governor by the Anglican Youth Fellowship, AYF of Saint Mark Anglican Church, Elelenwo.
