Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has declared that the delivery of development projects and social services by his administration will not be politicized because they are geared towards solving pertinent needs faced by the people of the state.

The governor explained that while every human and societal challenges cannot be solved in one swoop, every promise made would be fulfilled within available resources and delivered on schedule.

Governor Fubara gave the assurance at the official inauguration of the dualised Omoku-Egbema Road project, which took place at De Masters Hotel Junction, Obrikom Road, Omoku Town in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area (ONELGA) yesterday.

Governor Fubara said: “When the project was added to the list of projects to mark our one year in office, there was a challenge. But, the contractor assured us of delivering it, which is a reality today.

“What are we doing today? We are here to tell our people that they are the most important thing to us. We are here to assure you that every part of this state will have positive impact of our administration.

“We can make bold to say that today, a project that was impossible in the past was made possible by this administration.”

Governor Fubara further said: “If within this short period, we could deliver this to our people who were yearning for this road, crying and complaining, it is a sign that this government has the interest of the people of Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area at heart.

“So, I want to assure you: don’t let anybody deceive you anywhere. This is the right boat to join. The captain of this boat, his own mantra is ‘The People First’. So, I assure you, with your support, the sky is our beginning.”

Governor Fubara said it would be improper for him not to appreciate the people of ONELGA because the campaigns leading his election kick-started in the area where their support was solicited.

The governor noted that they lived up to that commitment of giving electoral support, giving the required votes that had enabled members his team to be where they are today in government.

Governor Fubara granted some requests made to him by their spokesperson concerning roads and healthcare facilities in the area.
