Wike flags off the construction of Elimgbu -Rumuewhara-Rumunduru-Eliozu road

Rivers  State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has flagged off the  construction  of the Elimgbu -Rumuewhara-Rumunduru-Eliozu road in Obio/Akpor  Local  Government  Area,  with  the objective reviving  the  collapsed economy of the  four  communities  of Oroigwe clan.
Performing the  ground-breaking of the road  on Tuesday,  Governor  Wike  said  that  the  Oroigwe  have  suffered untold hardship because  of  the  poor condition  of  the road.
He said that  the  Elimgbu -Rumuewhara-Rumunduru-Eliozu was politicised by previous administrations without  any work done  on  the  road.
The  governor  said that  the  road will be completed  on schedule  because  funds have been  reserved  for  its execution.
He said: “We are constructing this road to end the suffering  of the people  of  Oroigwe  clan. The fund for the project  has been reserved  and the  contractor  is expected  to  work  in line with  the  approved  schedule  and specifications.
“This road has been  a  source of political deception by the previous administration. While they used the road to campaign,  they made no effort to construct this road.
“By the  Special  Grace of God  this road will be constructed  from start to finish.  It will no longer be used for  political  expediency “.
He charged  the people of Oroigwe clan  to support the  contractor to work  without  harassment of her staff.
Permanent  Secretary of the  State  Ministry of Works, Mr Paulinus  Nwankwoala said the road is  5 kilometres in length with  two  drains and a bridge.
In his remarks,  Managing  Director of  CGC Nigeria  Limited,  Mr  Jiang  Liewe assured  that  the  road will  be  completed  within  18months.
The  road flag off was was witnessed  by  community  leaders,  youths and women  groups.
