Tuesday 15th, October 2019 was so memorable in the life of Prince Timothy Nsirim the former Chairman Obio/Akpor Local Government Area and a political heavy weight in the Peoples Democratic Party-PDP in Rivers state. While swearing in the members of Board Rivers state Road Maintenance Agency in Government House Port Harcourt, the governor re-emphasized the importance of having all potholes in Port Harcourt fixed by the agency and he warned that for them to succeed in doing their job, they should avoid internal squabbles which he said contributed to the dissolution of their predecessors in office.
Governor Wike said “Settle down and draw out a comprehensive work plan on how to address the Potholes on some of the roads in Port Harcourt and its environs. Almost all the major roads in Port Harcourt have been awarded for reconstruction. Therefore, identify the roads that have not been awarded, but have Potholes. When you identify these roads with Potholes, funds will be released for their immediate rehabilitation.”
