Contractors Seek Outstanding Payments, Debt Burden from Previous Administration Highlighted

In a recent address during the commissioning of the Aleto-Ogale-Ebubu-Eteo Road, also known as Old Bori Road in Eleme Local Government Area, Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara voiced grievances over the substantial debt left by the preceding administration led by Nyesom Wike.

Governor Fubara lamented that many projects across the state were not adequately funded, leading to contractors seeking outstanding payments.

Although the exact figure of the inherited debt was not disclosed, Governor Fubara emphasized the necessity of addressing the issue, spurred by pressure from political opponents.

He further pledged transparency by intending to present a “white paper” detailing project funding during future commissioning events.

Addressing rumors of conflicts with the federal government, Governor Fubara clarified that his administration has received support but faces challenges, possibly influenced by internal interests.

Notably, Governor Fubara welcomed the presence of Abia State Governor Alex Otti at the commissioning, emphasizing a commitment to collaboration with progressive leaders.

In response, Governor Otti praised Governor Fubara’s leadership style, commending his dedication to serving the people of Rivers State.

Drawing from his experience in previous administrations, Otti expressed confidence in Governor Fubara’s ability to navigate political instability while prioritizing development initiatives.

The completion of the Old Bori Road reconstruction project is expected to offer a viable alternative to the deteriorating Eleme section of the East West road, addressing longstanding infrastructure challenges in the region.
