Wike left N225bn uncompleted projects in Rivers – Gov. Fubara | read more 


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

He made this revelation while presenting an Account of Stewardship and Scorecard to mark One Year Anniversary of his administration at Dr Obi Wali International Conference Centre in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.


Fubara also revealed that his own administration has awarded nine new road projects, valued at N534.332billion.


This is even as he described as vicious and existential in nature, the political crisis that was waged against his administration, barely three months after take-off on May 29, 2023.


The Governor, however, said that the worst was over because his administration has successfully defended the rights and privileges to govern the State and advance its progress in liberty and freedom without compromise.



The Governor said;

“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, somehow, 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.”


“For us, any government worth its name must be accountable, responsive, and responsible for the security and well-being of the people.


“Having managed the affairs of our State for one year, including dispensing public resources, it is only proper that we render account with a public presentation of our performance record.


“I am, therefore, pleased to stand before you to present our Scorecard for the first year we have been in office as the Executive arm of the Government of Rivers State.”
