Governor Fubara Highlights Achievements Despite Political Crisis in Rivers State

Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara declared that despite ongoing political turmoil, his administration remains resilient and committed to delivering benefits to the people.
He attributed this success to divine grace and support from former Governor Dr. Peter Odili and elder statesman Senator John Mbata.
Speaking at a state banquet celebrating his first year in office and the 57th anniversary of Rivers State at the Government House in Port Harcourt on Monday night, Governor Fubara expressed gratitude for the support his administration has received.
In a statement by Nelson Chukwudi, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Fubara emphasized that while others celebrate a full year of governance, his effective control and purposeful governance have been in place for the past four months.
“We decided to have this banquet today to say: thank you, thank you, and thank you to every one of you. You have supported us,” Fubara said. Reflecting on the political challenges faced earlier in the year, he noted, “We never knew we could even stand up till today.”
Governor Fubara reiterated his commitment to delivering democratic dividends to the people of Rivers State. He highlighted the significant investment in the Trans-Kalabari Road project, costing over N225 billion, aimed at enhancing security and development in remote areas.
He explained that the project is not motivated by regional bias but by a genuine desire to foster statewide development.
“Security issues will be reduced, development will come to our people in far remote areas that you could hitherto only traverse through the sea, and issues of water piracy and boat mishaps will be addressed,” he said.
Fubara also mentioned ongoing projects such as the Port Harcourt Ring Road and the Elele-Egbeda-Omoku Road, emphasizing the administration’s dedication to infrastructure development.
He assured that zonal hospitals would be operational within six months and committed to making education affordable to reduce crime and improve societal well-being.
Soliciting continued support from state leaders and other government branches, Fubara praised Dr. Odili and Senator Mbata for their unwavering support, which he said significantly strengthens the government’s position.
“Let me especially thank our leader, Sir Dr. Peter Odili, and Senator John Mbata. They are a strong symbol causing problems in the camp of the opposition. Each time they stand with us, they’re one million in one man,” he said.
Governor Fubara also thanked security agencies for maintaining peace in the state and urged them to continue their efforts.
Additionally, the Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Tammy Danagogo, announced the unveiling of a book titled “Rivers Golden Expedition, Trials And Triumphs,” a collaborative effort by 97 authors from Rivers and Bayelsa states.
The book, initially planned for 2017, was finally launched on May 27, 2024, thanks to providence and the grace of God. Biobele Da-Wariboko described the compendium as a valuable resource for understanding the history and potential of Rivers State.
