Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has made it clear that he will not govern the state from a position of submission, despite ongoing efforts to undermine the state's integrity.

Fubara, amidst a political dispute with his immediate predecessor, Nyesom Wike, is calling for the backing of all relevant individuals in the state to ensure its future is secure.

Fubara made these statements during a speech at the Ubima country home of a former governor of the state, Sir Celestine Omehia, in Ikwerre Local Government Area.

The governor, together with a group of elders from the state, visited Omehia to offer their condolences on the recent passing of his mother, Mrs Ezinne Cecilia Omehia.

Fubara highlighted the significance of unity and determination for individuals who genuinely care about the well-being of Rivers State.

The governor criticized the negativity and danger associated with politics and bitterness, stressing the importance of discouraging such a harmful political culture in the present era.

Fubara said, “Anybody who claims to love this state should not be party to anything, directly or indirectly, that will bring us backwards. We will continue to support every course that will advance the interests of our dear Rivers State.

“And I am happy to say, and I’ve said it over and again, it doesn’t matter the number of people that are standing with me, I will stand on that side of truth.”

He expressed gratitude to the elders and emphasized that bitterness would not result in progress for the state. He stated that in order to help the state reach the position that people believe it should be, they need to work together.
