Tinubu promises to tackle poverty, complete East-West road

President Bola Tinubu on Thursday said the request for the completion of the Eleme axis of the East-West Road is not lost on him and his administration would reconstruct it.

“The request for infrastructural development has been made. It is not lost in the presentation,” Tinubu said, responding to remarks by the Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, who led a 62-man delegation from his state on a courtesy visit to the President at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, disclosed this in a statement he signed on Thursday, titled ‘President Tinubu promises to reconstruct Eleme Axis of East-West Road; thanks Rivers State for stalwart support given to his administration.’

Tinubu said that blessed with enormous human capacity and natural resource wealth, neither Rivers State nor Nigeria should be associated with poverty, insecurity, or under-development.

Therefore, he assured the delegation that his leadership would ensure a permanent change to the narrative for good.

President Tinubu noted that concerning infrastructure development in Rivers State, he had heard the cries of prominent Rivers sons, with particular reference to the Eleme Junction-Onne axis of the East-West Road, linking the Port Harcourt Refinery.

Tinubu advised the younger generation to be more patient with government processes, saying, “I am the Captain and Chief Salesman of the country. We have to reverse the trend and achieve possibilities within a short period.
