Rivers indigenes laud Wike for fixing strategic federal highway
Seek Dualisation Of Access Road, Revival Of Rubber Company, Others
Rivers indigenes resident in Lagos under the auspices of Ogbakor Etche have commended Governor Nyesom Wike for fixing the failed portions of the Chokocho-Okomoko-Igbodo highway, describing the infrastructure as the main access to and fro the Etche axis of the oil-rich state.
President-General and Secretary of the Lagos chapter of Ogbakor Etche, Azubuike Lazarus Samuel and Secretary, Nnodim Kelvin, applauded Wike for his people-oriented programmes and policies since assuming office in 2015. They added that they’re ready to work with the current administration to make their presence further felt in the Etche axis. Moreover, they urged Wike to consider their earlier plea for the revamping of the Delta Rubber Company in Okomoko/Umuanyagu community of Etche to enhance economic activities in the area; lamenting that since 1999, their representatives at the National Assembly cared less about their developmental needs.
Restating that health is wealth, they also sought the rehabilitation of all state-owned medical facilities located in towns and villages of Etche and Omuma local government areas for improved access.
