Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that the APC Federal Government has no choice, but to construct the Bonny-Bodo Road.
Also, the  Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has flagged off the upgrading and remodelling of Bonny National Grammar School, Bonny.
Flagging off the upgrading and remodelling of Bonny National Grammar School on Tuesday in Bonny, Governor Wike regretted  that the APC Federal Government was playing  games with the Bonny-Bodo Road project  after the NLNG  committed  N60billion as counterpart fund for the  all-important road.
The governor said that the Bonny-Bodo Road is important  to the  economy  of the  area in view of the resources that the Federal Government gets from Bonny Island .
He said: “I was the one that  approached  the NLNG  to contribute  to an arrangement for the construction of the Bonny-Bodo Road.  Shortly  after that  meeting, the NLNG  wrote to me that they will contribute 50 percent to the construction of the road, while the Federal Government will contribute the other 50 percent.
“There is no year that the NLNG  contributes less than $1billion (USD) to the national economy.  The contribution  of N60billion for the construction of this  road is nothing to the  Federal Government “.
He said that  there is no need for the  Federal Government  to play games with the  Bonny-Bodo Road.  He assured the people of Bonny Island that he will continue  to work for the completion  of the road.
The governor charged Rivers leaders in the  APC to also work towards convincing the Federal Government to site key projects in the state.
“The APC is under obligation to keep her promises to Nigerians.  The people are tired of these excuses on why they must not succeed”, he said.
On the Bonny National Grammar School , Governor Wike said that the school will be completed on schedule and the people duly empowered.
He said that all the contractors involved  in executing  the project are from Bonny, noting that  it was a deliberate  step by the administration  to empower the people.
“None of the contractors  doing this job is from outside. This is to show that we are interested  in empowering  the people”, he said.
While  stating that the State Government has acquired six Gunboats  for improved  security on the waterways, Governor Wike informed  that  the administration  will improve the marine transportation system for safety and security.
He said that the Bonny/Bille/Nembe Jetty which is nearing completion  will be commissioned soon.
Earlier, the State Commissioner of Education, Dr Tamunosisi Gogo-Jaja said since 1966 when the Bonny National Grammar School was established, there has been no major intervention.
He said that the upgrade will witness the construction of new laboratories, libraries, hostels, Christian Chapel and improved classrooms.
Caretaker Committee Chairman of Bonny Local Government Area, Mr Cyril Hart praised Governor Wike for the intervention in the remodelling of Bonny National Grammar School, saying that they were neglected by the Amaechi administration.
He also commended  Governor Wike for the construction of the Bonny/Bille/Nembe Jetty, urging him to work for the initiation  of a cheap and safe transport system to the Island.
