Enemies of Rivers desperate to frustrate me – Fubara

Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State has alleged that desperate enemies of the state have thrown everything into the ring in an attempt to frustrate his administration from functioning effectively.

He stated this while speaking to the officials of the Standing Committee and members of the Nigerian Guild of Editors, NGE, at the Banquet Hall, Government House, Port Harcourt.

According to him, opposition elements in the state exhibited spirited efforts to sabotage his administration at every point in its determination to deliver good governance and quality services to the people.

The governor clarified that the present administration will not go into the completion of the monorail project initiated by the Chibuike Amaechi-led government, except a serious private sector investor decides to commit resources to the project under a well-defined private public partnership arrangement.

Fubara stressed that he would want to be remembered not just by the signature road projects of building legacy bridges and flyovers, but by sustainable impact on human capital and manpower development as well as other critical infrastructure landmarks to bridge the healthcare and education gaps in the state.

Governor Fubara listed attempts to scuttle the process of governance in the state to include the clandestine calls to some key speakers and prominent personalities invited to participate at the just-concluded Rivers Economic and Investment Summit not to associate with his administration, or participate in the programme designed to reposition the State for robust investments and progressive economic rejuvenation.

He said that it took the courage of some of the speakers and guests to honour the government and participate fully in the programme.

The governor also drew the editors’ attention to efforts to frustrate the revival and completion of the Port Harcourt International Automobile Spare Parts Trading and Commercial Centre just flagged off at Iriebe in Elelenwo, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area about a month ago by cajoling the previous contractors who had abandoned the project due to lack of support to sue the state government to court, to derail the project.
