Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has affirmed that the Federal Government will support every effort to improve the living condition of Nigerians.
The Acting President stated this while commissioning the Chokocho-Umuechem-Ozuzu Road and Chokocho-Igbo-Etche-Rumuokurushi inter-change in Rivers State.
He asked political leaders across the country irrespective of the party they belong to always work for the people, saying that was the only way the impact of the government can be felt by the public.
“Here with us to commission the project of the Rivers State government is Senator Magnus Abe who is from another party. The Federal Government supports every effort that benefits the people”.
Speaking on Thursday at the gathering in Etche Local Government Area of the state, Professor Osinbajo commended Governor Nyesom Wike for the success of the projects.
He further re-emphasised the need for leaders to shun partisan concerns and work in the interest of their people.
“We must always look for ways to advance the interest of our people, we are greater together than apart. Today is a very happy day, we will always have happy days”, he added.
Earlier, Governor Wike explained that the two roads were constructed to revive the economy of the local government, saying they were initially death traps.
He said: “The two roads to be commissioned today were so bad that the people of Etche could not use them to transport their agricultural products to markets”.
