OYO NEWS understands that the 1007.5 metres Rumuola-Rumuokwuta flyover which connects Rumuola road to Ikwerre road is the 12th flyover built by Governor Nyesom Wike’s administration since 2019.
Governor Wike disclosed the president-elect would pay two days official visit to Rivers State next week during inspection tour of the Rumuola-Rumuokwuta flyover and Magistrates’ Court building in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.
Governor Wike said the president-elect was told when he came to campaign in Rivers State and paid a courtesy call to Government House, Port Harcourt in February 2023, that he would be invited to commission some of the landmark projects of his administration.
“We had invited presidential candidates of other parties like Labour, New Nigeria Peoples Party, they all came and commissioned projects and we did say to him (president-elect) that we believe that after the election, we are going to invite him to commission projects too. And luckily, these two very important projects are ready.”

Governor Wike explained that as part of the activities to mark the inauguration of the incoming administration in Rivers State, several projects like the Intelligence Centre in Rumueprikom, remodelled Prof. Kesley Harrison and Dental and Maxillofacial hospitals among other projects have been earmarked for inauguration.
“In fact, part of the activities to mark the inauguration of the new governor for the people of the state will be commissioning of other impactful projects.
“Remember, when the inspector general of police) came last time to commission the Intelligence Centre in Port Harcourt, we did promise him we are going to build another Intelligence Centre. As I speak to you now, that centre is ready. Some other projects are the Kesley Harrison hospital.”
