=== (AGENDAWATCHDOG) === Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has flagged off the construction of the 17.2 kilometres long and 22.3 metres wide Saakpenwa-Bori-Kono dual carriageway.
Speaking at the ceremony, Governor Wike assured that his government was committed to completing the project on schedule, urging the local residents to continue to support the contractor handling the project to ensure its speedy completion.
According to Governor Wike, the flag-off of the project was in fulfillment of a promise made during the inauguration of phase one of the project, adding that having reconstructed the road from Saakpenwa up to Bori Town, it was proper to extend the same comfort and opportunities the road offered to the people in Kono Town.
Governor Wike urged CCECC not to use the rainy season as excuse to delay delivering the project in 14 months as agreed, because both the contract and the money were signed and released during the rainy season.
Performing the flag-off, Senator Lee Maeba said nobody prompted Governor Wike to adopt the road for reconstruction because he is a leader who knows what is best for the people and understands how central the Saakpenwa -Bori -Kono road project is to every Ogoni person.
