AmaechiEmbattled Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, has declared that he will leave the state in a better position than he met it in 2007.

Giving this assurance on Friday when he played host to members of the Nigeria Institute of Architects, Rivers State chapter, who visited him in the Government House, Port Harcourt, Amaechi said part of his transformation agenda was to leave an enduring legacy built on transparency and accountability.

The governor explained that his administration could account for its stewardship within the past six years.

He noted that his government had built 350 schools out of the 700 proposed, while 250 of the schools had since been operational.

Represented by his deputy, Mr. Tele Ikuru, Amaechi boasted that 120 primary health care centres have been completed out of the 150 proposed to boost the health sector.

“Part of the things we have promised to do when we came is that we are going to leave Rivers State better than the time we came in”, he said.

“So, Rivers State should be better than when we came in and I believe that in the last six years we have been able to discharge our duties in such a way that those who appreciate will agree that we can conveniently account for our stay in government.”

Amaechi lauded the role of the NIA in the development of the state’s urban renewal policy, especially the Greater Port Harcourt, adding that the Institute had some of the most brilliant minds.

“We are able to redesign Port Harcourt through your valuable inputs. The NIA is a partner in progress in the administration’s efforts at developing the state.

“I give an assurance that our long standing relationship will be sustained through future collaborations,” the governor added.

Earlier, the NIA Chairman, Mr. Dike Emmanuel, hailed the state government’s reforms in the building sector which he said had reduced quackery, building collapse and revenue loss.
