‘Do not de-market Rivers State’ – Fubara to critics

Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State has warned critics against damaging political activities that paint the state in bad light.

Governor Fubara said such actions are capable of destroying the state’s economic fortunes.

He gave the warning while inspecting the work done at the ongoing Woji-Aleto-Alesa-Refinery link road project on Tuesday.

In a statement signed by Boniface Onyedi, his Senior Special Adviser on Media, Fubara stated that those who truly love the state will not engage in damaging political activities that will chase away investors who are expected to add to the economic prosperity of the state.

“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.

“Economically, no sound and serious investor will hear all these stories and feel comfortable coming here to invest. So, we will try our best to continue to project the good side of our state,” he said.

Speaking on the ongoing project, Governor Fubara said the contractor, Raffoul Nigeria Limited had increased its pace.

“We were here about two months ago to follow up on the commitment of the construction firm and we decided to visit again today to see what they have done and I can say that we are impressed,” he said.

The governor added: “You know, the most critical part of the project is the bridge. If you have a video of what we saw last time compared to what we have on the ground now, it shows they’re doing everything to make sure that the project is completed within the timeframe. They have promised that it will be delivered in the next three months.”
