Is Port harcourt a state?






No bro, but most building construction project in Rivers State only occur in 3 local government area: Port Harcourt City, Obio/Akpor, and too some extent Ikwerre LGA. while other LGAs are considered to be out of MUD / RTP zone or GREATER PORT HARCOURT CITY PROJECT.

In other words, Rivers Government only concentration are in Areas covered by this bodies, which are all in Port Harcourt metropolis.

Going to the Riverine and Creeks, Like Kola, Bille, and others you are on your own.
