Governor Similayi Fubara

Governor Siminalayi Fubara  of Rivers State has biblically evaluated the new court ruling that affirmed lawmakers loyal to his estranged godfather, Nyesom Wike.

He said he was not deterred ad he sought strength in the Book of Psalms. .

Reacting the the Appeal Court’s ruling on Friday, after inspection of projects in Khana, Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State , he said: “I know that a lot of you will be wondering what is going on and all that. Government has its own challenges. If you go to the book of Psalm 23 verse 5, in the Bible, it said that God prepares a table before you; it can be before anybody. But there is an underlined word that should be noted there: it said ‘in the presence of your enemies’. So, it means that nothing comes easy.

“I want to assure everyone of you and the good people of Rivers State, that we are not deterred. We have made our promises, we will continue to give you good governance, no matter how difficult it is.

“But, like I said before, the worse is over. We are moving on to ensure that we continue to provide what is needed for the development of our state.”

Meawnhile, , Fubara expressed delight and fulfilment at the completion of the projects, promising that he would do more to make life better for the people.

: “We are here today. I believe that from next week, we should be visiting Degema, Ahoada, Omoku, and also ensure that we visit the site of the Modern General and Psychiatric Hospitals in Rumuigbo to see the extent of work that is going on.

“But for now, we are satisfied with what we are seeing here. When we say: zonal hospital, this project is not just for the people of Khana. It is not just for the people of Gokana, even my own constituency, Opobo/Nkoro will also benefit from this facility.


“So, we are assuring the good people of this senatorial district that we will make sure that we put it into completion and good use,” he said.
