He has put together a new management team in the Greater Port Harcourt City Development Authority (GPHCDA), with a mandate to promote development in the state.

Speaking to newsmen, the administrator, Greater Port Harcourt City Development Authority (GPHCDA), Desmond Akawor said the first phase of the new Port-Harcourt city project will be completed over the next five years.

Akawor also added that the new city development project will cover seven local government areas.
