  • Observers say like the Agip flyover, Wike’s new flyover will not ease traffic

After three years of executing routine minor projects;  flagging off and commissioning Amaechi’s projects, Gov. Nyesom Wike has finally decided to embark on one major project of his own. The Rivers State Governor says that his government would construct a flyover at the Garrison-St. John axis of the Port Harcourt-Aba Road. Governor Nyesom Wike stated this at the commissioning of the Garrison-Slaughter Road. The Governor said that the flyover when completed will help put to end the vehicular traffic congestion at the Garrison Junction of the Port Harcourt-Aba Road.

Unfortunately, instead of constructing the flyover from the Nkpogu Junction of the Trans-Amadi Road to empty into the right and left of Aba Road, the governor said the flyover would be constructed on Aba Road from the vocational center down to St. John area. This according to observers is to repeat the mistake of his predecessor who constructed the Agip flyover on Ikwerre Road instead constructing it on Abacha Road, emptying traffic into Ikwerre and Ada-George Roads. They say that the proposed Garrison Junction flyover will not ease traffic just as the Agip flyover has not solved the traffic problems because commercial vehicles ply under the bridge and create congestion for vehicles on Abacha Road. The Agip flyover is always free of vehicles while the underneath is congested.

The Governor said that “I thank them that they supported the contractor and some of our people gained employment while they were doing this work and we have agreed with RCC to construct a flyover from the vocational center down to St. John’s because we believe the opportunity that this state has given to us, we are not the best but the state gave us opportunity and we must not disappoint those who gave us that opportunity. We must make our people to be happy. We must let you know that you did not make mistake by giving us your mandate”.

The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike said that his administration would continue to deliver on its electioneering promises to the people of the state.

He said “I thank them and let everybody know that when we make a promise, we would fulfill our promise. Our own government is not a blame government. We are not coming here to blame anybody; we are coming here to solve problems because we knew there were problems before we came and ours is not to say that it is because of this or because of that, we have come to solve problems and that is why you voted for us, so we have no reasons to give you excesses. So, for those who say that they have not seen anything that we have done, may God continue to make them not to see. So, our dear people, I thank you so much for the support you have given to us”.

Meanwhile the Oni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has joined in commending Governor Nyesom Wike’s development stride. Oba Ogunwusi stated this while commissioning the Rex Lawson Cultural Centre in Port Harcourt which was completed by his government. Speaking at the event, Gov. Nyesom Wike said that the project was abandoned by the former administration of Chibuike Amaechi. Governor Wike and his government did not re-award the project but renegotiated with the contractor handling the project and paid him to complete the work. He said the project initially named after the first African Black woman to win Miss World, Agbani Darego was renamed after the late legendary musician, Cardinal Rex Jim Lawson whom he described as a cultural icon.
