The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Tuesday said his administration will rehabilitate the State School of Public Health Nursing.
Mr. Wike, however, berated the management of the institution for its inability to maintain the school’s infrastructure while inspecting facilities at the health institution, adding that a comprehensive rehabilitation of the school may require shutting it down for a while.
The governor was accompanied on inspection of projects by the Senator Representing Rivers-East Senatorial District, George Thompson Sekibo.
He said it was regrettable the management of the school failed to take basic sanitary measures to ensure the school’s environment is conducive for teaching and learning.
“What I saw at the Rivers State School of Public Health Nursing is quite disappointing. The environment of the school is very unkempt and the buildings are in bad condition. We will revive and rehabilitate the School of Public Health Nursing and bring the school up to the standard needed to train nurses,” he said.
Also on Tuesday, the governor inspected ongoing work at the Rumuokoro Market and Bus Park in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.
He commended the contractor for the quality of work done, saying when completed, the project would help to resolve traffic congestion in the area.
The governor also inspected the construction of the State Ecumenical Centre in Port Harcourt.
In an interview with journalists, Senator Sekibo said the governor was recreating Rivers State through the projects.
