Those Fighting My Administration Want to Truncate Development in Rivers – Fubara

Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has vowed not to concede his mandate to anyone. The governor, while speaking at the cross-over service at St Paul’s Archdeaconry Parish in Opobo Town on 2024 New Year’s Eve in Opobo/Nkoro Local Council, acknowledged that those fighting his administration wanted to dampen spirit of residents and forcefully truncate the pace of development, albeit failure.

Fubara emphasised that nothing will stop his administration from getting to its destination, stating that the foundation is laid solidly in God. His words: “What they want is this red biro, but it is still with me. We are the winners because we are still signing with the red biro. As long as we are signing with the red biro, development will continue in Rivers State.”

Recall that the governor has been in a serious political crisis with his godfather and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, and loyalists since October this year.

The crisis resulted in the resignation of 10 commissioners loyal to Wike and consequently, an eight-point resolution in favour of the minister was purportedly signed by Wike, Fubara and other stakeholders.

The peace agreement has been criticized and rejected by various ethnic groups in the South-South region, as they described it as anti-people and a directorial document.

Speaking further, Fubara encouraged Rivers people not to be disheartened over the ongoing crisis, because nothing would stop him from steering the affairs of the state successfully.

The governor, who said there was already a developmental agenda and level of progress determined for Rivers in 2024, stressed that he would not relent in working for the good of the state.

Fubara, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Boniface Onyedi, thanked President Bola Tinubu for the fatherly role he played when he intervened to restore peace in the state.

“Like I keep saying, it takes a responsible man to be a father. He acted like a father. On our part, we will continue to give him all the necessary support because if he fails in Rivers State, he will not succeed as a President.

“So, as a state, we will continue to give him every support. We are not pretenders. Our support is genuine, and it is to uplift his programmes. Our sacrifices are part of the support,” he added.

The governor also appreciated the people for their support, describing them as believers in true Rivers and urged them to trust the decisions that he takes.
