The Rivers State Assembly just approved a N200 billion supplemental budget, which he signed into law last week.

The governor has stated that this funding is necessary to begin building the projected Port Harcourt Ring Road.

On Tuesday, Governor Fubara announced the start of a three-year project to alleviate traffic congestion in Port Harcourt and the neighboring Obio/Akpor local government areas. He made the announcement after inspecting the dilapidated sections of Degema Street, Harbour Road, and Reclamation Road in the old Port Harcourt Township and the ascending section of the bridge connecting Peter Odili Road to Woji Town.

According to Fubara, the Ring Road will pass through six different local government units around the state.

When these areas are finally made available, he says, residents and business owners alike will flock there after people begin purchasing land there.

That’s how vital the road is, just so you know.

He gave his word that the roads inspected will be mended for good this time around.

The governor also reportedly reviewed continuing works at the Government Secondary School, Emohua, according to a statement signed by the governor’s senior special adviser on media, Boniface Onyedi.

After seeing the damaged section of Rumuigbo Road, he continued on to Iloabuchi Road, which is on the proposed path for the Port Harcourt Ring Road.
