According to the governor, the accomplishments were secured within three months that his administration had settled down to work, given the festering political crisis.

The chief press secretary to the governor, Nelson Chukwudi, confirmed this development in a statement made available to journalists on Saturday.

He, however, assured all that in the next six months, Rivers people should expect to see evidence of the significant investment that his administration has made to change the narrative, Daily Independent reported.

He said:

“I was in the Nigerian Governors’ Forum meeting on Wednesday, and we were given an update from the chart on the medical position of all the states. It was in zones.
“You won’t believe that in that chart, everything that has to do with enrollment, even the level of facilities that is on the ground in that assessment, Rivers State was classified as below benchmark. It is a pity.
