Blessing Ibunge in Port Harcourt

Rivers State Governor, Mr. Siminalayi Fubara, has reassured residents of the state of protection of lives and property.

Governor Fubara told the people that they should not panic and be rest assured of the determination of his administration to protect them while improving the collective aspirations of the people.

The governor gave the assurance yesterday while addressing members of the Family Support Group, who were on solidarity visit to the Government House in Port Harcourt, to declare their unalloyed support to his administration.

Family Support Group is an assemblage of well-meaning Rivers youths, women and men drawn from the three senatorial districts and 23 local government areas in the state, with the core aim of protecting, promoting and defending the interests of Rivers State.

Represented by the Head of Rivers State Civil Service, Dr. George Nwaeke, the governor said his government is for the youths, women, men and every well-meaning Nigerian who wish the state well.

He assured them that his administration would not disappoint their expectations, and will deliver good governance and quality services across all sectors.

Governor Fubara said it was gratifying to see such ebullient youths showing undying interest in government, and were also willing to defend their votes, and therefore, desired the tenure completed without interruption.

He explained that so many development projects have been completed and opened for public use with many others like the Port Harcourt Ring Road still actively ongoing.

The governor specifically noted the readiness of the administration to flag off the construction of phase two of the real Trans-Kalabari Road from Port Harcourt through Tombia to other communities, and the Elele-Egbeda-Omoku Road.

According to him, “The land of Rivers State stands in affirmation that we won the election fairly, and deserve to serve out our full tenure. There is not going to be anything that will cut short the popular mandate that you all gave to this administration.

“Just about within weeks of assuming office, His Excellency, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, flagged off the Port Harcourt Ring Road project that will transverse six local government areas. It will be completed within 36 months, but I think it will be completed before the time, because the progress of work we have seen is beyond what we were thinking.

“Very soon, the official main Trans-Kalabari Road will start, and will begin from Port Harcourt. That road, a lot of plans have been done, very soon, you will see contractors on site, and Rivers State will be opened.”

Governor Fubara emphasised that his administration is pro-youth and pro-human beings, and determined to maintain that level of empathy and inclusivity that offers succour to the people.
