“We inherited this road and the greater chunk of the cost was borne by us, so we feel justified to add it to our project to be commissioned for the good of the people.”

“This road used to be very bad, with lots of criminal activities including kidnapping. So, putting it in order, you can see the man hour saved. Before now, it takes 30 to 45 minutes to drive from Emohua to Tere-Ama junction, but it just took us 15 minutes to be here now.”

He pointed out that the people will be better for it as the road will make life easy for them and that is the responsibility of a government that should be seen as working.

On his visit to the Rivers State Assembly Quarters, Governor Fubara said he went on routine visit to check out how the place is, adding that with the emergence of a new speaker there are few things that may be required to make the place conducive.
