Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has directed the State Road Maintenance Agency to sustain the successes recorded in the rehabilitation of 16 major roads.
An emergency State Executive Council, SEC, meeting presided over by Governor Wike on Sunday night critically examined all the roads already rehabilitated by the agency, reaching a decision that the agency had applied state resources judiciously.
Addressing journalists after the meeting, the Commissioner for Information and Communication, Dr Austin Tam-George, said the State Executive Council resolved that all efforts must be geared towards ensuring that Rivers people get value for money expended.
According to him, Wike emphasised on the need for the agency to continue in the path of services, by putting an end to bad roads in the state.
SEC also announced a 10-member committee to coordinate the one year accountability report of the Wike-led administration with a directive that they are to produce relevant documentation backed by videos and pictorials of the state government’s interventions to revive the state.
He said the documentation would be done on a sector to sector basis, because the people are entitled to know how the government they put in place is faring.
“The meeting was targeted at strengthening good governance, accountability and enhancing the performance capacity of the present administration,” he said.
