In a resolute stand against perceived threats to Rivers State, Governor Sim Fubara vowed to resist any form of blackmail and intimidation, emphasizing that the state is the collective inheritance of its people.
Governor Fubara expressed his commitment to safeguarding and advancing the state’s interests during the quarterly general meeting of the Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers.
The Governor addressed the ongoing political discord with his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, at the event.
The face-off, centered around the state’s political structure, had escalated to the point of an impeachment move against Fubara. However, intervention from President Bola Tinubu averted the crisis.
Speaking at the gathering, Fubara reiterated, “Rivers State is our collective inheritance, presently under my watch, to protect, defend, and advance as the governor.
I will not fail in this responsibility, nor will I surrender our mandate and progress to intimidation, blackmail, and deliberate sabotage.”
Acknowledging the crucial role of peace in societal development, Fubara emphasized the necessity of maintaining peace and security, stating, “No society can thrive without peace and security.”
He reaffirmed his commitment to fostering peace, highlighting the futility of needless crisis in the pursuit of progress for Rivers State.
