The Rivers State governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has lamented the huge debt left behind by the immediate past governor of the state, Nyesom Wike.

Mr Fubara disclosed this on Tuesday during the unveiling of the 10.98-km Aleto-Ogale-Ebubu-Eteo Road in Eleme Local Government Area of the state.

The project was inaugurated by the Abia State Governor, Alex Otti.

According to Mr Fubara, most of the projects that were executed during the previous administration were not fully paid for, resulting in debts running into millions and billions of naira.

Mr Fubara, who has been having a running battle with his predecessor, noted that the contractors who handled most of the projects for the past administration are now returning for outstanding payments.

He said: “This road was previously not completed but has now been completed. It should be noted. For the records, this contract was awarded to CCECC on August 14, 2023, by this administration.

“This project was awarded N6.7bn, and I can say boldly that no kobo is remaining. We have paid the contractor completely without owing.

“The purpose of this is to let the world know that if there is one problem this administration has, it is debt.

“Most of the projects commissioned (by the last administration), the contractors are still coming for their balance payments running into millions and billions.

“I have said I don’t want to talk because I am part of that system, but when they keep pushing me, I will say it so that we will see the nyansh of the fowl.

“But let us leave that one until they are ready; we will also be ready. The small one we are doing now, they are not sleeping; I wonder what will happen when we do the big one.”
