Rivers State Government to reconstruct Creek Road Market


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has assured market women at the Creek Road Market in Port Harcourt that  his administration will construct a befitting market for them.



Speaking on Monday  during his inspection of Projects, Governor Wike appealed to some of the market women trading on the middle of the road to immediately  vacate the road.

He explained that he had to personally  interface with the market women because  the contractor handling  the road complained that the traders were onstructing ongoing  construction work.

According to the governor, there is no need to apply force because the construction  of  the  road will be beneficial  to the market women.

He said: "I am here to personally  appeal to you to stop trading  on the middle of the road. This  will allow the contractors to continue with their job.

"The contractors  must have to finish  this job. It will not be wise that the  state's money is lost because  you are distracting the contractors.  Please assist me by leaving  the middle of the road, so that they can work".

In a related development, in line with the directive of Governor Wike, engineers from Julius Berger and the State Ministry of Works  started  preliminary  work at different flood impacted locations  in the state.

It will be recalled that  the Rivers State Governor inspected flood impacted locations  on Sunday where he directed immediate remedial measures.
