Wike, who spoke on Monday in Port Harcourt during a town hall meeting tagged: “Accounting for Governor Wike’s Administration: One Year After,” said that the state was stabilised through the strategic release of funds via payment of salaries and payment for key projects.
Governor Wike explained that he started with the renewal of infrastructure in Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor Local Government Areas because both towns support majority of the population of the state.
He said: “We have stabilised the economy of Rivers State since we took of the reins of leadership in the state. We achieved the stabilisation of the economy by injecting N151 billion as salaries and payment of contractors.”
He further assured the people that every local government area in the state will host key projects, saying that no local government area will be denied the impact of good governance.
