Rivers State Governor, NYESOM WIKE has explained why he sacked the Commissioner for Environment, Doctor IGBIKS TAMUNO.
The governor speaking at the signing of the contracts for the Trans-Kalabari Road project phase one and the Saakpenwa-Bori-Kono Road project phase two said TAMUNO was sacked because he engaged in acts that amounted to sabotage.
Governor WIKE further said he signed the road projects to demonstrate the importance his administration places on opening up more rural communities for development.
The Governor said with a secured payment plan of 1-billion-naira monthly into the accounts of the construction companies, the deadlines for the two projects will not be compromised.
He further urged the benefiting communities to owe the projects by ensuring that they cooperate with contractors and avoid bothering them with unnecessary demands that can create crisis to stop the projects.
