Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, took to the streets on Friday, and walked for two hours at a stretch, as he inspected completed and ongoing projects in the state, and at the end of it, sighed contentedly, with these words – when government is working, the people are happy.

The event, which witnessed thousands of residents trooping out into the streets to celebrate the governor, as he walked through major streets in Eleme, Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor Local Government Areas, took a carnival-like look as Wike mingled with the people at every stretch along the way.

Part of his inspection of projects execution across the 23 Local Government Areas, the tour, peaked at Slaughter Road/Bridge, where market women and shop owners sang the praises of the governor, and joined him as he abandoned his vehicle and walked to inspect progress of work on the strategic road near the Slaughter.

Accompanied by the Former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt Hon Austin Opara and the Former Minister of Transport, Dr Abiye Sekibo, Governor Wike also inspected the Produce House And the National Industrial Court.

He further inspected the Woji-Akpajo Bridge, the Elelenwo-Akpajo Road, Garrison-Trans-Amadi-Elelenwo Road, Mile One Market, Judges Quarters, Birabi Street and the TY Danjuma Street.

Addressing journalists after the projects inspection, Governor Wike expressed satisfaction that the state is using first class contractors to deliver quality projects.

He said that the street celebration by the people signifies their appreciation of the delivery of projects by his administration.

"We have no regrets allowing major contractors to execute our projects. The delivery is encouraging. When Government delivers, the people are happy.

"Our government delivers and we don't give excuses. We shall continue to deliver in order to keep the people and in line with our development blueprint."
