The Rivers State Executive Council has approved the 2018 Budget for presentation to the State House of Assembly.
Addressing journalists after the first State Executive Council meeting for 2018 on Wednesday, State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Emma Okah, said the council extensively discussed the drafts of the 2018 Budget from all the Ministries, Departments and Agencies.
He said modalities had been concluded for the formal presentation by Governor Nyesom Wike on the floor of the Assembly.
Speaking further, he said council frowned at the situation where some communities failed to protect public infrastructure.
He said communities that allowed government infrastructure to be destroyed would face the consequences.
Okah also informed that communities that failed to protect contractors executing projects would lose such projects.
He said Wike assured that the administration would continue to deliver quality projects and programmes that will improve the lives of people of the state.
