Publishers under the aegis of the Port Harcourt Press say they are impressed by the way Governor Siminalayi Fubara has run the affairs of the State in his first one hundred days in office.
The Publishers said in a statement in Port Harcourt that they have closely monitored the activities of the Fubara administration in the past 100 days, saying they were impressed with efforts being put into crime prevention as well as service delivery.
“Within the first hundred days, Governor Siminalayi Fubara who has commenced the construction of the Port Harcourt Ring Road which will strengthen the infrastructural base of the State is also collaborating with security agencies to ensure that Rivers people are safe.
“The welfare of the people matter in any democracy. Accordingly, we believe that the major obligation that governments owe to society is the protection of lives and property. We are pleased with the effort that the Government is making to provide both financial and logistical support to law enforcement agencies operating in the State.
“The Governor’s swift reaction to the attack on a female hostel at RSU, the killing of SP Bako Angbashim and the bounty placed on the heads of Gift David Okpara and members of his gang underscore his commitment to crime prevention and the overall safety of all Rivers people.
“Similarly, within his first 100 days in office, Governor Siminalayi Fubara has engaged in formal talks with foreign envoys and potential investors in a bid to attract investments.
“The restoration of consular services by the British whose diplomats have been in touch with the Rivers Governor show that the English believe that normalcy has returned.
“Similarly, it is proof that the Rivers State is open for business, particularly against the backdrop of the infrastructure and a conducive environment that the Rivers government is creating for businesses to strive.
“Within the first 100 days, Governor Fubara has commissioned and flagged off a number of projects. They include projects in the three major areas – health, education and roads.
“Although a period of three months is not long enough to assess the strides of the government, we are certain that the Governor has set the agenda anchored firmly on a consolidation process, that would take Rivers State to a new level of growth, development and progress.
“Finally, we congratulate His Excellency, Sir Siminalayi Fubara on his first 100 days in office and urge him not to relent in his effort to transform the State in line with the dreams and aspirations of the founding fathers who fought so Rivers people would manage their own affairs.”Follow us on social media
