It was a celebration of the high level performance of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike as thousands of residents of Port Township trooped out to participate in the commissioning of two major roads in the area.
The roads that were commissioned were: Dame Patience Jonathan Road (Former Creek Road) and Bishop Johnson street.
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike announced the change of the name of the reconstructed road from Creek Road to Dame Patience Jonathan Road.
He stated: “Our mother Dame Patience Jonathan is a woman who has supported us. We recognize her because of her contributions, we recognise her because of her support for the development of the state. It is on this note that I rename this road, Dame Patience Jonathan Road.
The governor said that the reconstruction of the road was in fulfilment of his campaign pledge to the people of Port Harcourt township.
“When we were campaigning, we assured the people that we will deliver this important road. All of us know how this road was before the reconstruction. Borokiri and township roads were in very deplorable conditions before we came on board.
“It was as if Borokiri and township were no longer part of Port Harcourt. To the glory of God, this road has come back to life”. He said.
