The Rivers State government has said that all school projects started by Governor Nyesom Wike’s administration will be completed and delivered to the people, despite the rising cases of COVID-19 in the state.
Prof Kaniye Ebeku, the State Commissioner for Education, said Governor Wike was determined to complete all projects as scheduled and warned contractors to astick to deadlines.
“The Governor, Mr Project, made it clear that the restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 will not stop projects from going on in the state. He has warned that the contractors who have collected mobilisation fees would not be allowed to hide under COVID-19 to avoid doing what they should do.
“He is going round the project sites to ensure that the contractors are doing their work, while ensuring social distancing. There are other projects going on, including the three flyovers.
“So, as far as this state is concerned COVID-19 has not managed to shut down projects, including works at the various school sites “.
Ebeku expressed satisfaction with the pace and quality of work at the Community Secondary school, Ndoki, Oyigbo L. G. A, noting that government’s commitment to delivering on its promises to Rivers people, was the driving force behind the continued execution of projects across the state.
