He said conclusions have been made for the formal presentation by Governor Nyesom Wike on the floor of the Assembly, adding that the Council was displeased with the instances where some communities fail to protect public infrastructure.

He cautioned that communities that permit the destruction of government’s infrastructure would face dire consequences, while warning that any community which fails to protect contractors executing projects will lose such projects.
