The Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum and Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has declared that the frequency with which his Rivers State counterpart, Governor Nyesom Wike, churns out quality projects justifies his world acclaimed name, “Mr. Project”.
Commissioning the Rumuwoji International Market built by the Wike Administration in Port Harcourt on Wednesday, Governor Fayemi commended Wike for his outstanding performance.
He said: “We are proud of him (Wike). We are proud of the work he is doing in Rivers State. He is going to continue to Commission projects till 27th September. That is almost 10 days from now.
“Even if it is one project per day, it will be almost 10 days. Now I understand why they refer to him as ‘Mr. Project’.”
Fayemi noted that governance is about improving the living standard of the people, stating that Governor Wike has worked hard for Rivers people.
He said: “The promise that the governor made is what he is fulfilling today. That is what government is all about. Governance is about affecting the lives of our people.
“Governance is about improving the quality and condition of our society. Governance is about ensuring that we fulfil promises that we make to the people.”
He said though he is not in the same political party with Governor Wike, his duty as chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum is to support, protect and defend all governors irrespective of their party affiliations.
In his address, Governor Wike said that he pledged to rebuild the Market and that the commissioning of the Rumuwoji Market is a fulfilment of that promise
“I made a promise to construct this market. We started this market from the foundation to its completion.
“When we make promises to the people, we are bound to fulfil the promises. Hold us accountable to our promises, because there is no need for excuses. We made a promise and we have fulfilled that promise,” he said.
He also noted that the Rivers State Government has finished paying for the project.
Governor Wike established a management committee for the market, directing the committee to ensure that the market serves the people.
