Fubara: I’ve done more than those who spent eight years in office

Governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara, has said his administration’s achievements in three months have surpassed the performance “of those who spent eight years” in office.

Speaking on Saturday in Ngo Town at the inauguration of the Andoni section of the Ogoni-Andoni-Opobo Unity Road project in Andoni LGA of the state,  Fubara, however, did not disclose the administration he was referring to.

He noted that a recent assessment of the state in health enrollment and availability of facilities showed that Rivers performance was below the set benchmark.

The Rivers governor assured people of the state that within the next six months, Rivets would witness a total change.

“I was at the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) meeting on Wednesday, and we were given an update from the chart on the medical position of all the states. It was in zones,”said Fubara .

“You won’t believe that in that chart, everything that has to do with enrollment, even the level of facilities that is on ground in that assessment, Rivers state was classified as below benchmark.

“It is a pity. It is not something that just happened in a day. It is not something that just happened within my time in government. No, no. It is statistics collated over a period of time. So, it means when we tell you that our target is education, healthcare and agriculture, we didn’t make any mistake.

“But, I just want to say this, what is important today is the section of the Unity Road that connects Andoni to Ogoni and Opobo/Nkoro has come to reality. That is the important thing,” he said.

“We have to thank first, the initiator, Dr Peter Odili. We have to thank other successive governments, which also contributed before we finally made this day to be.

“The beauty of it is that we are not owing any dime on this particular project. We are happy its happening in our own time. Our motto remains the people first.

“Anything that has to do with the people, we must take it serious.

“I want to say here that we need to develop our own and if we have to do it, we have to do it ourselves. I promise my people that we are going to do more jobs, more connecting roads for the Andoni by the special grace of God.”
