Speaking while commissioning the Chokocho-Umuechem-Ozuzu road and Chokocho -Igbo-Etche-Rumuokurushi Inter- Change in Etche Local Government Area  on Thursday , Acting President Yemi Osinbajo lauded the Governor Wike for embarking  on pro-people projects.

The Acting President charged leaders  to de-emphasise partisan concerns and work in the interest of their people.

He said: "We must always  look for ways to advance the interest of our people.  We are greater  together  than apart. Today is a very happy day. We will always  have happy days.

"Here with us to commission the project  of the Rivers State Government is Senator Magnus Abe, who is from another party. The Federal Government  supports every effort  that  benefits the  people ".

Earlier, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike said the two roads were constructed  to revive the economy  of Etche Local Government Area.

He said that the roads were death  traps and completely damaged the economy of the area as they could not take their agricultural products to the market.

He said: "The condition  of the two roads to be commissioned  today were so bad that the people  of Etche  could not  use them to transport their agricultural products to markets."

The Chokocho-Umuechem-Ozuzu road  is 16 kilometres while the Chokocho -Igbo-Etche-Rumuokurushi Inter- Change is kilometres .
