Rivers govt commits to new town development

The Rivers State government is actively pursuing the realization of the Greater Port-Harcourt City Development Authority (GPHCDA) blueprint, with a focus on establishing new towns and attracting additional investments to the state.
 
Governor Siminalayi Fubara made this commitment during an inspection of the GPHCDA office and project sites in Ikwerre local council. He underscored the government's determination to undertake more projects by creating new cities within the state.
 
Governor Fubara stated, "While achieving the vision of a grand city may take longer than our current term, we are committed to making incremental progress and taking steps to alleviate congestion in Port Harcourt and ObioAkpor while simultaneously developing other regions of the state. Our strategy involves the creation of new cities."
 
He emphasized that aligning development goals with the government's vision could lead to significant accomplishments and urged the agency to become self-sustaining by attracting investors.
 
 
Desmond Akawor, the Sole Administrator of GPHCDA, explained that the agency faced operational challenges due to its existing structure and the nature of the Public-Private Partnership model it had adopted since its establishment in 2009. Akawor mentioned that a new legal framework, initiated by the previous GPHDA board, has been refined by the current management and is ready for presentation to the governor.
