Governor of Rivers State, His Excellency, Sir Siminalayi Fubara has expressed confidence in his administration to deliver more developmental projects across sectors beyond the completed projects listed to celebrate his first one hundred days in office.
Speaking to the press after an inspection tour round a number of projects in four local government areas of the State on Thursday, Governor Fubara said he was personally certifying the state of completion of the projects to ensure that the desired quality was delivered to the beneficiaries.
The projects inspected included the 10.3kilometre Indorama-Agbonchia-Ogale-Ebubu-East West Link Road, the 19.1KM long Oyigbo-Okoloma (Afam) Road, the Comprehensive High School, Alesa-Eleme, the Botem- Gbene-nu Horo Road, the Community Secondary School, Koroma-Tai, and the Government Secondary School in Eneka Town.
In a statement signed by SSA on Media to Governor Fubara Boniface Onyedi, Governor Fubara noted that though his administration is still in it’s early days, the zeal to work more in advancing the interest of the State will be sustained to ensure that every Rivers person feels the benefits of the development strides.
“I am happy with what I saw. You can see the level of work going on in the secondary schools. The number of workers shows that the contractors are serious.
“We also stopped by at Eleme where we have two projects there; one is the old Bori road which takes you to Eteo road to connect Ogu/Bolo Local Government Area, that we intend to flag-off soon. It is a very important project because once it is done, you don’t need to pass through the East-West Road if you are going to the axis of Ogoni, Opobo or even Andoni.”
Governor Fubara also visited the Rivers State University campus where he condemned the robbery attack on students in the Female Hostel D by yet to be identified criminals, assuring that the investigation that has opened will unravel the perpetrators, and bring them to book while promising medical attention for the molested students.
