“I believe that the government is tired of making promises without fulfilling them, even the entertainment and other business sectors are tired of the Lagos, Port Harcourt dichotomy.
“We are tired of the narrative that Port Harcourt is unsafe for business and leisure.
“I have been in the state long enough to feel the pulse of the people; Rivers people are tired of the level of redundancy going on in the production economy,” he added.
China however, commended the governor, Mr Siminialayi Fubara for his willingness to drive a productive economy through public private sector collaboration.
