The Rivers State Government is reported to have flagged off, in collaboration with the World Bank/European Union (EU)f the construction of micro projects in six Rivers communities

The communities according to the report,  are Ogoloma, Koko-Ama and Ogbogbo in Okrika Local Government Area, as well as Umukikpe, Obeakpu and Igwuruta communities in Oyigbo, Omuma and Ikwerre Local Government Areas.

The projects are said to include teachers quarters and water project in Koko Ama, perimeter fencing of community primary school and foot bridges at Ogoloma and classroom building at Community Secondary School, Ogbogbo.

The rest are, building of corpers lodge and provision of furniture in Obeakpu Ndoki in Oyigbo Local Government Area, provision of furniture and renovation of school hall at Igwuruta in Ikwerre Local Government Area as well as the renovation of town hall at Umuikikpe in Omuma Local Government Area.

According to Sir ThankGod Amaewhule, the project Director, Community Driven Development Social-Project Implementation Unit (CDPS-PIU), Ministry of Chieftaincy and Community Affairs, States Employment and Expenditure for Result (SEEFOR) project, the projects were designed to put smiles on the faces of people in remote communities in the state.

It is ironical that Governor Wike and all those in his government who, while growing in Port Harcourt, drank government provided water,enjoyed good medical care,attended well furnished  primary and secondary Schools with adequately motivated teachers, cannot provide same for Rivers youth to benefit
