Rivers Crisis: Fubara Reacts As More Wike Loyalists Resign

Published by admin on

Despite the resignations of some loyalists of his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, Rivers governor, Sim Fubara says all the decisions he has made since assuming office have been for the benefits of his people.

The governor spoke while addressing a delegation of the leadership and members of Azuabie-Okujaku communities, who were on a peaceful solidarity walk to Government House in Port Harcourt on Wednesday, April 24.

Fubara restated his willingness to work with people of goodwill and progressive ideas for partnerships that would ensure the sustainable development of the state.

The governor, who was represented by the Head of Rivers State Civil Service, George Nwaeke, said the people’s support was largely organic.

“You are the people that voted him into power, and that is why you have the right also to say that these are the things you need,” he said.

“The governor also recognises the contributions of your sons and daughters who have served the State in different ways. Your community is one of the greatest communities in the State because it has produced men who have contributed in no small measure to the growth of Rivers State.

“I want to beg of you, as you go home, let every person here be an ambassador, everybody in your community. Tell them that the Governor means well for his people.

“Tell your people that their governor is still sitting in the place they elected him to sit, and making the right decisions. We know there could be people who may be tempted with money to be Judas. But tell them to shun money. Tell them that what matters at this time is the people, and the Governor is people-centred.”

Fubara in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Nelson Chukwudi, said he had listened and taken note of their requests concerning the state of public schools in their communities, among other issues that required attention.

He said: “I want to even thank you for that on your own, you made some community efforts to execute projects, whereas some people, when the government builds schools, they go and steal the things used in building the schools and destroy the schools.

“In your case, you used your own money to build some classrooms in your communities. The Governor will be very happy to hear this and your communities will be supported.

“I want to make one assurance to you: We have received your protest letter, we will not talk about them here, because already, the governor is thinking along those lines.

“The governor is thinking about making sure that our people live in a comfortable environment. I can assure you that your communities will receive maximum support”.

Speaking on behalf of Azuabie-Okujaku communities, Elder Tamunotonkaye Adolphus, said they were ardent supporters of the Governor Fubara-led administration and were impressed with his performance in office, accomplishments, and peaceful disposition.

Adolphus explained that the people had fresh hope of government intervention in their communities because they were neglected by the immediate past administration, leaving their roads and public schools unattended.

He expressed the belief that the Fubara-led administration would come to their aid by rehabilitating the 10km internal roads and the two public schools in the communities.
