Contract for 5th Flyover to be Signed Today - Governor Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike says he will on Friday, August 14th sign contract papers with Julius Berger for a 5th Flyover in Port Harcourt.
The flyover, according to him will be at GRA junction and the contract estimate will cover for the  dualisation of Ezimgbu Link Road and Tombia Road extension. 

Governor Wike who made the disclosures when the Rivers State executives of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) paid him a courtesy visit at Government House, also affirmed that the first three flyovers will be completed by December.

Governor Wike told the delegation that his attention is focused on governance and delivering service to the people. 

"Let me say clearly that this is no time for politics. My concern now is to make sure we deliver all the promises we have made to the people of the state. When politics comes, we will have our report card to show the people.
"It has never happened in the history of this country. Within one year,  a State Government will construct five flyovers projects at the same time.

"In October last year, three flyover projects were flagged-off and they will be completed this December, 2020.  In July,  we started expansion of Rumuola flyover and tomorrow,  we will sign contract papers with Julius Berger Nigeria PLC for the GRA junction flyover, that includes the   dualisation of Ezimgbu Link Road and Tombia Road extension. 

"So many people ask us where we get money  for the projects during this  COVID-19 pandemic. I tell them if God is with you,  you will not  have any  problem. God has given us the opportunity at this point in time and he will not abandon us.  

"We will be executing projects and also continue to fight to make sure our people are safe. We will provide basic infrastructure for our people and also  improve the economy of our State.  We cannot give excuses but we will continue to do our best," he stated.
