Wike kicks off second phase of P/Harcourt township road
RIVERS State governor, Nyesom Wike, has kicked off the second phase of the reconstruction of Port Harcourt Township roads, with a view to improving the living standard of majority of the underprivileged in the state capital.
Performing the kick-off of the reconstruction/rehabilitation of the roads on Tuesday, Governor Wike said the phase would enhance the economy of the densely- populated areas.
He noted that the administration contracted Julius Berger for the second phase of the project because it believed there was the need for durable jobs in the suburbs.
The governor urged the contractor to employ youths from Port Harcourt township, adding that “I am doing this for the township because you people stood by me all through the electioneering period. This is a symbiotic relationship.”
The first phsse of the Port Harcourt township roads covered Borikiri and Diobu surburbs.
