APC lauds Gov. Wike on projects’ completion in Rivers
Mr Davies Ikanya, the party’s state chairman stated this in Port Harcourt during a forum on Wike’s 100 days in office.
Ikanya, who was represented by Mr Chris Fynebone, APC’s state publicity secretary, said the previous administration abandoned the projects due to shortfall in revenue.
“Those projects of a truth were not abandoned but left in line with the belief that government is a continuum. “So, completing the projects are imperative for the progress of the state,” Ikanya said.
Also speaking, Mr Chika Onuegbu, Rivers chairman of Trade Union Congress (TUC), commended Wike for making roads passable again, condemning the unlawful scrapping of Rivers Traffic Management Agency (TIMARIV).
Onuegbu noted that crime wave, especially kidnapping was on the increase, stressing that it was capable of stalling investment in the state. The TUC boss called on government to design a blueprint for economic prosperity of the state with the aim of creating wealth and jobs.
Earlier, the chairman of the forum, Mr Emeka Unachukwu, warned against character assassination and calculated attacks on governments or individuals.
Unachukwu, who is also the President of Port Harcourt chamber of commerce, said the forum was necessary for an objective directive to government on areas that required attention.
