Rivers Governor Fubara while awarding N534.332bn for nine new road projects, bragged about delivering significant projects despite facing political crisis.

Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has revealed that his administration inherited 34 uncompleted projects valued at over N225.279billion spread across 13 local government areas of the State. 

Fubara, who revealed this, on Wednesday, while presenting an account of stewardship and scorecard to mark one year anniversary of his administration, in Port Harcourt, said the government under him had awarded nine new road projects, valued at N534.332billion.

He said despite the political crisis that was waged against his administration, barely three months, his government was able deliver significant projects across the state.

“We started this journey with a bang. We were focused. We were determined to make the change we promised with a sense of urgency. But then, we suddenly found ourselves in the cesspit of crisis barely three months into our tenure. It was not just an ordinary political crisis. It was a vicious existential crisis. 

“But thank goodness, the worst is over. We have successfully defended our rights and opportunity to govern our state and advance its progress in freedom, and we will continue to prevail,” he said.

Fubara stated that since he assumed full governance, a lot had changed in the political landscape, adding that he remained committed to the covenant taken a year ago to put Rivers State first, defend her interest, and ensure that the people get the dividends of democracy and good governance.

He reflected on his promise to deliver on the core priorities of economic growth, infrastructure, healthcare, education, and agriculture, as contained in his blueprint as a resolve to building a virile, resilient, and progressive state that caters to the needs of the people.

The governor said, he was proud to report that, despite the unprecedented challenges, his first year in office has witnessed significant achievements visible to everybody.
