Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has issued a stern warning to critics of his administration. He said they should stop engaging in damaging political activities that portray the state in a bad light. He added that such activities would eventually have a negative effect and destroy the economic fortunes of the state.

Governor inspects road project

The governor made the remarks while on inspection of the extent of work done at the ongoing 6.5km Woji-Aleto-Alesa-Refinery link Road project on Tuesday. He expressed his satisfaction with the progress of the project, which he said would be completed in the next three months.

He said the project was part of his vision to improve the infrastructure and connectivity of the state. Fubara also said it would boost the economic activities and livelihoods of the people in the area.

The governor observed that the most critical part of the project was the bridge, which he said was almost done. He said once the bridge was completed, the pace of the completion of the entire project would be faster.

Governor blasts negative propaganda

The governor also blasted those who were spreading negative propaganda about his administration and the state. He said they were not doing any good to the state, but rather chasing away potential investors who could contribute to the economic prosperity of the state.

He said, “Whatever we are doing or whoever is sponsoring anything negative is not doing it to the person of Governor Fubara, they are using it to run down the state. I feel that it shouldn’t always be bad news from the state. People should see the good part of our state and promote the image of our state.”

He urged the people of the state to be patriotic and supportive of his administration, which he said was delivering on its promises and mandate. He said he was elected to serve the people and not to engage in petty politics.

Governor promises more development

The governor also promised to continue to deliver more development projects and programs to the state. He said he had a clear agenda and vision for the state, which he would not allow anyone or anything to distract him from.

He said, “For us, we will continue to do our best for our dear state. We were elected into office to deliver service. I believe that doing what we are elected for, is not something strange, it is carrying out our duty.”

Fubara also thanked the people of the state for their cooperation and support, and assured them that his administration would not let them down. He said he was confident that the state would overcome its challenges and achieve its potentials.

He said, “We have a lot of challenges, but we also have a lot of opportunities. We have a lot of resources, but we also have a lot of responsibilities. We have to balance everything and make sure that we deliver the best for our state. I have no doubt that with God on our side, we will succeed.”

The governor also appealed to the people of the state to adhere to the safety protocols and guidelines to prevent the spread of any disease. He said his administration was committed to ensuring the health and well-being of the people.

He said, “We are not taking any chances with the health of our people. We are doing everything possible to protect them and provide them with quality health care. Also, we are working hard to improve the education, security, agriculture, and other sectors of the state. We are determined to make Rivers State a model of development and excellence.”

The governor was accompanied by his deputy, commissioners, and other top government officials on the inspection tour.
