Rivers govt to construct Isiokpo roads

Zenith

Rivers State Government has awarded contract  for the construction of the internal roads of Isiokpo, the ancient headquarters of Ikwerre Local Government Area.

 The measure is to improve the economy of the area. 

During the Thanksgiving Service at the Saint John's Anglican Church, Isiokpo on Sunday in honour of PDP Chieftain, Chief Maxwell Tasie-Amadi, who went through an open heart surgery, the state governor, Nyesom Wike,  declared that the people of Isiokpo would no longer suffer marginalisation.

The governor  said that his administration  would ensure that roads in the area were motorable and other basic  amenities  improved upon.

He said  that the road from Isiokpo  to Ibaa was already under  construction in line with his promise to the  people.

His words: "We will revive  Isiokpo and make it economically  viable once again. Like other cities, Isiokpo  will bubble again".

 

He lauded the people of Isiokpo for supporting  his administration, assuring that he would change the negative narrative foisted on Isiokpo by the immediate past governor, who hails from Ikwerre Local Government Area.

 

Isiokpo, the headquarters of Ikwerre Local Government Area, was completely neglected by the immediate past APC administration in the state on the  account of perceived differences.

 

 On the Thanksgiving, Governor Wike  thanked God for granting good  health to Chief Tasie-Amadi  after his heart surgery.

Besides, Chief Maxwell Tasie-Amadi had said that God used Governor Wike  to ensure that he regained his health. He said that the governor acted promotely after learning of his condition.
