Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital was last week thrown into excitement during the flag off of the 11th and 12th flyovers in the city to be constructed by Nigeria’s leading engineering construction company, Julius Berger Nigeria Plc. 

Appreciating Berger’s premium quality project antecedents during the flag off of the 11th flyover at Rumuokwuta/Rumuola junction, Ikwerre Road, Port Harcourt, Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike said the company has stood by the state government and its efforts at developing lasting infrastructure.

A press statement issued by the media unit of the engineering giant, Monday, quoted the governor as saying,“…we trust that Julius Berger will again deliver on this flyover in due time.” Wike added that his administration has made every effort to make available needed funds to complete projects as every project he started must be completed before he leaves office next year.

“We do not want any case of abandoned project by the time we leave office next year. I have released the money for the compensation of every property that will be affected here,” he said.

In his remarks at the event, representative of the Managing Director of Julius Berger Executive Director, Tobias Meletschus, expressed “management’s appreciation for the trust and confidence reposed in the company by the Rivers State Government.”

He added that the company is ever aware of the high expectations of the government and good people of Rivers state on the ability of Julius Berger to deliver the flyover on schedule, adding, “We have never failed you and we will not fail you on this too.”

Former governor of Cross River state, Donald Duke, who officially flagged off the flyover praised the “synergistic effects of the relationship between the State Government and Julius Berger Plc”, adding that, “it is worth emulating by others who want to develop.”

At the flag off of the 12th flyover also known as the Ada George Location flyover in Obio/Akpor local government area of the state next day, Governor Wike said the project was scheduled to be completed within 10 months, adding that payment for work done will not be a problem
