Refusing Submission: Fubara Vows to Stand Firm Against Threats to Rivers State

Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State has firmly declared his stance against governing the state from a position of subservience, emphasizing his refusal to lead while kneeling. He expressed dismay at ongoing attempts to undermine the essence of the state.

Amidst a simmering feud with his immediate predecessor and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, regarding control of the state, Fubara condemned the corrosive influence of political animosity and rancor, highlighting its detrimental impact on the state’s advancement.

Speaking at the Ubima residence of former governor Sir Celestine Omehia, in Ikwerre Local Government Area, Fubara, accompanied by a delegation of respected elders, offered condolences on the recent loss of Omehia’s mother, Mrs. Ezinne Cecilia Omehia.

Fubara expressed solidarity, stating, “I have come here with very few respected elders of the state, to come and support you and say to you that ‘we sorrow with you.

“The most important thing is to show our concern and love. Any human being who shows enmity to death, that person is not even normal.

“We also rejoice with you for a life lived well to fulfilment by Mama. We wish Mama a safe journey. Let her stay well where she has gone.

“I will not, I repeat, I will not govern our dear state on my knees. If that was the purpose, I will not do that. I will stand to govern our dear state and stand continually on the side of right.”
