ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Nigeria’s President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu will inaugurate the Rumuola-Rumuokwuta flyover and a magistrate court building in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on 3 and 4 May, 2023.
This was announced by Governor Nyesom Wike, of Rivers State, while inspecting the 1007.5- metre flyover and court building on Wednesday.
“To God be the glory. We are expecting the President-elect on the 3rd and 4th of next month to commission the 12th flyover and the magistrate court building,” Wike said in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri.
Wike explained that the President-elect was informed in February when he was in the State to campaign, that he would be invited to inaugurate some of the landmark projects.
He said: “We had invited presidential candidates of other parties like Peter Obi of the Labour Party and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the NNPP (New Nigeria Peoples Party), who all came and inaugurated projects.
“We did say to him (President-elect) that we believe that after the election, we will invite him to inaugurate projects too. And luckily, these two very important projects are ready.”
The Governor noted that it was gratifying that his administration was able to complete the Rumuola-Rumuokwuta, the 12 by his administration, within the last four years.
He said that Rivers people will attest to the fact that his government had conscientiously delivered on the promises made to them.
“Rivers people will of course attest to the fact that we have given our best and we thank God and give Him the glory that it has turned out this way. We are extremely happy and can beat our chest, we can go home satisfied that we have not disappointed our people,” he added.
Governor Wike explained that as of part of the activities to mark the inauguration of the incoming administration in the state, many projects like the Intelligence Centre in Rumueprikom, the remodeled Prof. Kesley Harrison and the Dental and Maxillofacial hospitals, among others, had been earmarked for the inauguration.
“In fact, part of the activities to mark the inauguration of the new governor for the people of the state will be the commissioning of other impactful projects.
“When the Inspector-General of Police came last time to commission the Intelligence Centre (Port Harcourt), we did promise him that we are going to build another Intelligence Centre. As I speak to you now, that centre is ready. Some other projects are the Kesley Harrison hospital,” he stressed.
