Fubara: We’ll Complete all Road Projects to Ease Movement in Rivers

Blessing Ibunge in Port Harcourt

Rivers State Governor, Mr. Siminalayi Fubara, has assured the people of the state that the government will complete all ongoing road projects to ease movement in the state.

Fubara stressed the need to provide critical projects that will add to the efforts of removing hurdles that slow down the pace of business activities in the state.

He said while normal life of residents are made easy to thrive in a secure environment, the enabling conditions must be provided to engender the growth of business activities.

Fubara made the expression in his remark during an inspection tour to the ongoing 10km-long old Port Harcourt -Bori Road project site in Eleme Local Government Area of the state yesterday.

He said: “Yesterday, we were at the Woji by-pass, the Woji-Aleto-Alesa-Refinery Road project site that leads to the refinery, Aleto and other adjoining communities.

“Today, we are here, and there is something about these two projects, they have one common purpose, which is to assist our people to have another by-pass because of the situation of the East- West Road.”

The governor further stressed that the old Port Harcourt -Bori Road project is central to the agenda of his administration of creating a business-friendly climate that will engender economic activities, save more business time, and ease movement of people and goods.

He said the project would not only to benefit the immediate communities but the entire state since vehicular traffic that gets frustrated on East-West Road could find alternative routes more comfortable to access their business destination.

According to him, “This particular road we are inspecting now is the old Port Harcourt -Bori Road. You can pass through this particular road without bothering about the situation on the East-West Road, and it takes you to Bori or at least to all the axis of Onne.

“So, you see, what we are trying to achieve is that while awaiting the federal government’s intervention on the East-West Road, we are also trying to create alternative routes for our people, so that life can go on and business activities would not be slowed down.”
