Governor of Rivers State, Sir Siminalayi Fubara has vowed not to cede his powers as Governor of Rivers State to his predecessor Nyesom Wike and others fighting his administration.

The governor made the bold declaration at the crossover church service at St Paul’s Archdeaconry Parish in Opobo Town on 2024 New Year’s Eve in Opobo/Nkoro Local Government Area.

Fubara stated that he is not pretentious about his commitment to providing quality leadership, even though those fighting his administration want to dampen the spirit of Rivers people and forcefully truncate the pace of development.

He therefore encouraged Rivers people not to be disheartened over the ongoing crisis because nothing will stop him from steering the affairs of the state successfully.

“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,” Fubara stated.

Governor Fubara emphasised that nothing will stop his administration from getting to its destination because its foundation is laid solidly in God who alone will give the grace to complete the process of building.

The governor who said that there is already a designed development agenda and level of progress determined for Rivers State in 2024 stressed that he will not relent in working for the good of the state.

He further expressed gratitude to President Bola Tinubu for the fatherly role he played when he intervened to assist in the process of restoring peace in Rivers 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 does not succeed 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.”

Governor Fubara also thanked Rivers people for their unwavering support, describing them as believers in true Rivers State and urged them to trust the decisions that he takes because no one will be thrown overboard while vowing to stand firm in defence as their governor.
