The newly commissioned Abalamabie link-road Hon Aye Pepple Member RSHA, Bonny
The lawmaker representing Bonny constituency at the Rivers state House of Assembly, Hon. Aye Atamah Pepple has tasked the federal government to expedite action on completion of the lingering Bomu/Bonny road project, the Bonny ring road and to also facilitate the speedy take off of the Bonny Polytechnic to give the people of the area a sense of belonging.
The lawmaker made this assertion during the commissioning of Abalamabie-link road, one of the constituency projects financed under his office in Bonny local Government area of Rivers state.
Pepple who also donated fifty (50) bags of cement to two communities, the Ogwuede community to assist in completion of its Youth Development Centre, and fifty (50) quality plastic chairs to Park Community to respond to calls for assistance said the federal government must as a matter of priority complete the three crucial projects considering the contribution of the Island to the economy of the nation and the significant sacrifices it has made to sustain the wealth of the nation.
The state lawmaker also called on the Rivers state government to act on the dilapidated Bonny Jetty at Nembe/Bille/Bonny waterfront to alleviate the untold hardship suffered by travelers.
He expressed gratitude the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the people of Bonny for giving him the opportunity to serve, stressing that the Abalamabie link road project was in fulfillment of his campaign promises to the people.
According to the lawmaker, the road project was carried out after due consultation with the people of the area and will surely have a direct impact on residents just as previous constituency projects like the Youth Development Centre, blocks of classroom and the High court complex.
Pepple explained that the Abalamabie-link road project is one among many other upcoming projects like the Epelema community shore protection project that was chosen and has been approved as his 2012 constituency project and the Finima Youth development Centre billed to be commissioned very soon in the months ahead.
Hear him ‘It is my resolve to continue to make the people the main focus in my decision taking especially concerning my choice of projects in the area”. This he said has enabled him to provide not just acceptable but also quality infrastructure for the people in the various communities as a way of appreciating them for the mandate and to deliver to them the dividends of democracy.
While urging the people to support the PDP led administration in the local government, Pepple assured them of his continuous commitment to help transform the Island through infrastructural and people oriented projects in the various communities.
The Rivers state commissioner for transport, Hon George Tolofari who was also the special Guest of Honor, in his remark while commissioning the link-road commended the lawmaker for his effort. He said Hon. Pepple has demonstrated wisdom and clarity of vision with the various constituency projects executed. He urged the people to continue to support the state governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) so that such momentum can be sustained in the LGA.
Tolofari also used the moment to preach unity amongst Bonny indigenes especially the elites to move the kingdom forward. He emphasized the need for a synergy between those in government, the traditional institution, elites and Bonny spirited individuals to ensure continuous peace and progress of the kingdom. “Bonny people must drop whatever personal grievances, politics with bitterness arising from political differences among others and work together for the progress and development of Bonny kingdom.
Speaking earlier the chairman of Bonny Local Government area, Hon Edward Ebenezer Pepple had commended the lawmaker for complementing the effort of his administration in transforming and improving on the lots of the people in Bonny. Represented by his Vice Chairman, Hon. Emmanuel John Jumbo, the Bonny LG boss described Aye Pepple as a young focused politician with a vision and a big heart, noting that if the trend of development from both the lawmaker and council continues Bonny will in no time experience an all round transformation.
Their were equally gluts of commendable remarks and gratitude from the likes of Commissioner one (1), Rivers State Assembly Commission, Frederick Tolofari who appealed to the lawmaker to extend his goodness to the riverine communities, Chairman of Bonny council of Chiefs, Se Alapu Owen Manilla Pepple who urged other political leaders in the area to emulate the footstep of the lawmaker and the PDP Chairman, Bonny chapter, Hon.
