Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara has promised that no situation will compel his administration to lower the standard of projects he inherited from his predecessor, Nyesom Wike.
Speaking when he inspected work done at the Woji-Aleto-Refinery Road project, Sir Fubara said Rivers would continue to witness more projects.
“I can assure you and the world that no matter what the situation is, we are not going to lower the standard we have come to meet,” he said.
Fubara explained that the Woji-Aleto-Refinery road was inherited from the former administration, saying it was important to create an alternative route before the reconstruction of the East-West road.
The governor said the state government met its commitment to the contracting firm, Raffoul Construction Company and expected them to speed up work for early completion.
He said: “We had an understanding with the contractor and we did our own part of the commitment, so we are here to see what they are doing because we have given them a time line when the project should be completed.
“This is a follow up of one of the commitments we made to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu when we visited him about two months ago to thank him for all the good things he’s doing for us; appointment of our illustrious sons into very important positions. During that visit we promised him that in a way to help the Federal Government, we will create an alternative route to decongest the East West road.
“We inherited it and we promised that in line with our commitment of our mantra of consolidation and continuity, we must see that this road is completed.”
The governor expressed satisfaction about the state of work done and urged the contractors handling the project to ensure speedy delivery.
