Still basking in the euphoria of the landmark judgment by the Supreme Court, Governor Nyesom Wike has assured the people of the state that his administration  will  sustain  the  tempo  of projects  execution that will benefit  all communities. 
Addressing reporters after inspecting some on-going projects in Ikwerre, Obio/Akpor  and Port Harcourt  Local Government Areas on Saturday,  Governor Wike said that funding  of all projects would go ahead as planned irrespective of the short fall in global moil price. 
He expressed satisfaction  with the pace and quality  of  work at all the project sites visited, noting that the contractors  were living up to expectations. 
Governor Wike noted that residents  of  the  three local government  areas visited were happy that abandoned  and new projects were being completed  by the  administration. 
He said: “We are  happy with the  quality  of  work being executed  by the contractors in the areas we inspected today. In just two weeks  after our last inspection  visit, pace of  work  has improved .
“I assure the people of the state and the contractors  that funding will not be a challenge.  We shall drive all projects to their  logical conclusion “.
The governor particularly  assured  that  work on the new LNG bridge in Port Harcourt will be completed soon. 
Wike who intermittently acknowledged cheers from the crown was accompanied  on  the  inspection visit by the Sole Administrator of Greater Port Harcourt Development Authority, Ambassador Desmond Akawor and PDP  Candidate for the Port Harcourt 1 Federal Constituency, Barrister Ken Chikere. 
This is the first inspection visit of the governor after his victory at the Supreme Court last Wednesday.
