I Won’t Lower Momentum Of Development In Rivers – Fubara

Rivers State governor, Siminalayi Fubara has promised not to lower the standard and pace of development he inherited because it is one way of contributing positively to improving the lives of Rivers people while advancing the fortunes of the state.

Fubara stated this yesterday at the flag-off of the internal road project in Elelenwo community of Obio/ Akpor local government area, as part of activities to celebrate his first 100 days in office.

The governor stated that the assurance was in keeping with his campaign promises to consolidate on the existing pace of development.

He said it is because of the commitment to expand the scope of development that his administration approached the State House of Assembly to secure approval for an additional N200 billion to add to the 2023 budget of N500 billion of the state.

Fubara said, “The 2023 budget that we inherited was about N500 billion. Because of the sensitive nature of projects, we nominated for the expansion and development of our dear state, we sought the approval from the State House of Assembly that graciously approved an estimated budget, at that time, of N200 billion, which we added to make N700 billion.
