The central focus of the meeting was Governor Fubara’s compelling case for the rehabilitation of the East-West Road, a vital infrastructure project.
Following this closed-door meeting, Onueze Okocha, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and former President of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), addressed the media. He emphasized the strategic significance of the East-West Road, which plays a critical role in the revival of the Port Harcourt Refinery—an important commitment of the current administration.
Furthermore, Okocha noted that the Rivers State delegation’s purpose at the Villa extended beyond advocating for infrastructure; they were there to express their gratitude to President Tinubu for appointing sons and daughters of the state to significant government positions.
Among these notable appointments were Nyesom Wike and Ajuri Ngelale, who assumed the role of Special Adviser to the President on Media. Okocha conveyed the satisfaction of Rivers State residents with these selections, expressing optimism that these appointees would bring honor to the state.
Okocha also addressed protests within the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State regarding Wike’s appointment. However, he stressed that these protesters did not represent the broader views of the state’s people. He concluded by commending President Tinubu’s actions as emblematic of his dedication to serving the interests of all Nigerians, regardless of their political affiliations.
