We are not under siege; the state is free,” he stated. “If at all there is any problem in the state, I know quite alright that Nigerians know where it is coming from and not from us,” he said.

Governor Fubara expressed pride in this development, noting that although it was originally scheduled to be part of the one-year anniversary projects, the extension demonstrates a commitment to broader connectivity and infrastructure improvement.

Governor Fubara assured that the road would be completed and commissioned within the next few months.
