Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has directed the State Housing Commissioner,  Mr Emma Okah to take immediate measures to eject illegal occupants of the State Housing Estate at Iriebe.

 

Speaking on Saturday after inspecting the State Housing Estate at Iriebe where the Rivers State Ministry of Housing is constructing an additional 50 low cost flats, Governor Wike said Ministry officials should recover the property of the state government.

 

 

He said it was regrettable that squatters took over flats built by previous administration without following due process.

 

Governor Wike said: “ The commissioner for Housing is hereby directed to immediately take possession of the housing estate and evict the squatters. It is surprising that all these residents are staying here illegally”.

 

 

On the on – going construction of 50 additional flats, the governor expressed satisfaction with the level of work done, but insisted that quality work must be done.

 

 

He directed that the Ministry provide all the needed basic amenities required by residents of the estate. He noted that school,  health centre , police post, potable water and electricity must be provided in the Estate.

 

 

Conducting the governor round the Estate,  Rivers State Housing Commissioner, Emma Okah said that the 50 flats will be completed in one month.

 

 

He informed the governor that the occupants of the structures completed by previous administrations were illegal squatters who took possession of the estate without paying rent.

 

 

Also on Saturday Governor Wike inspected the portion of the East West road where the State Government and other stakeholders are intervening. He also inspected different road projects under construction in Port Harcourt City.
