“Wike confirms special visit from Tinubu to inaugurate flyover and court projects in Rivers”


The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has announced that the President-elect for 2023, ASIWAJU Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will be visiting the state next week to unveil two major projects: the Rumuola-Rumuokwuta Flyover and Magistrates Court, both completed by the Rivers State Government in Port Harcourt.


During an inspection of the projects on Wednesday, Wike stated that Tinubu would be the special guest of honor during his two-day visit on May 3rd and 4th.


“We are expecting the President-elect on the 3rd and 4th of next month to commission the 12th flyover and the Magistrates Court building. We had invited presidential candidates of other parties like Labour, NNPP (New Nigeria Peoples Party). They all came and commissioned projects, and we did say to him (President-elect) that after the elections we are going to invite him to commission projects too.”


Wike also expressed his satisfaction with the completed projects, stating that the Rivers State Government has given its best and thanking God for the outcome. He added that the state has not disappointed its people and can be proud of its accomplishments.


The Governor also shared plans for the inauguration of incoming Rivers Government, which include several other projects such as the Intelligence Centre in Rumueprikom, remodelled Prof. Kesley Harrison and Dental and Maxillofacial hospitals among others.


“Remember when the IGP (Inspector General of Police) came last time to commission the Intelligence Centre (Port Harcourt), we did promise him that we are going to build another Intelligence Centre. As I speak to you now, that centre is ready. Some other projects are the Kesley Harrison hospital,” he emphasized.
