Rivers: AA Guber Candidate Vows To Embark On Massive Land Reclamation

By Anayo Onukwugha, Port Harcourt

Governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) in Rivers State, Dr. Dawari George, has vowed to embark on massive land reclamation across the Kalabari Kingdom if elected as governor, in order to end denial of developmental projects.

He decried the absence of industries and key government institutions in the Kalabari area of the state, a sad situation he attributed to lack of land space.

George spoke in Buguma, headquarters of Asari-Toru local government area, while on his Governorship Road Show in the area.

The governorship hopeful stated that the absence of land space across the three Kalabari councils had denied the area what naturally belonged to them in the distribution and establishment of employment-yielding factories and related employment opportunities.

He said: “When, through the grace of God and the support of Rivers people, we are elected into Office of Governor, we shall embark on massive land reclamation across the Kalabari local government areas.

“By so doing we shall create opportunities for industries and allied services to thrive in the area. That would create employment for our people and cure restiveness and insecurity.”

George emphasised the need for a ring road that would link every community and hinterland in the area, saying that with the beauty of the flora and fauna of the area, Kalabari area would become the toast of the creative industry.

The AA governorship candidate said: “A Ring Road linking Kalabari communities, would create big opportunities for the Creative Industry to tap into the area’s flora and fauna.

“The mangroves offer the Entertainment Industry a rich space to thrive. Our Administration shall pursue that for the good of Kalabari and other areas of the state.”
