Fubara, who served as the Accountant-General during Wike’s tenure, insisted that all his actions were approved and properly recorded.

He highlighted his administration’s commitment to impactful projects that improve the quality of life for residents and that the Egbeda Internal Roads Project, saying, they not only enhance infrastructure but also addresses long-standing flooding issues in the area.
