Former President Goodluck Jonathan has commended Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike for his people-oriented projects.
Jonathan said this on Tuesday, before commissioning the 22.3 kilometres Airport-Ipo-Omademe-Ozuoha Road, in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state.
The former president said the title of Mr. Projects is not an exaggeration as facts on ground have attested to it.
He commended the governor for reaching the hinterland through the Airport-Ipo-Omademe-Ozuoha Road and said Wike deserves the support of the people.
He said: “The whole country calling Wike Mr. Projects is not an exaggeration. It is not political. The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors don’t just talk about projects, they do projects.
“Whenever Wike invites me for projects commissioning, I am happy. The governor is an example of a good and committed leader. What he has done in three years is quite commendable. The quantum of projects are scattered across the state. Last year, I was here to commission the second Nkpogu Bridge, and, today, I am here to commission a road to the hinterland.”
In his remarks, Wike said the PDP governors are committed to the development of their respective states.
He said in Rivers, his administration has executed projects in urban and rural communities for the benefit of the people.
The governor said several projects have been lined up for commissioning in different local government areas, while more would be flagged off.
“I am happy we are delivering projects across the state. This is a continuous process. We started from Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor Local Government Areas, because majority of our people live here,” he said.
