He also noted the huge investment the State Governor had made in ensuring food security in the state, noting that the Governor’s focus on agriculture and using it to engage the youths is another milestone of success secured in the development of Rivers State and its people.
In his speech, the State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike who renamed the Tombia Crescent to Chief Ferdinand Alabaraba Crescent said his administration was making its modest contribution towards restoring the Garden City status of Port Harcourt.
Governor Wike noted the support he had continued to enjoy from leaders in the state saying it has enabled his team to succeed in service to the state.
