Why I’ll sustain Wike’s legacies – Fubara

2 Min Read

The Governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara, has promised to sustain the legacies of his predecessor, Nyesom Wike.

He said this while harping on the need to maintain peace in the state at Saturday’s special ceremony organised by the Okrika Council of Chiefs and the people of Okrika to honour the Amanyanabo of Okochiri Kingdom, King Ateke Tom.

Wike said because he preached peace with tenable sacrifices and commitment, Rivers people now feel liberated and wholeheartedly support his government.

That feeling of liberation, Fubara explained, has propelled them to organise special thanksgiving services in celebration of his legal victory in the 23 Local Government Areas on a weekly basis without prompting from him.

The governor said the basis of development is anchored on peace and that nobody can get the best out of himself or from the society without a measure of peace.

“If you love your State, you will not be any part of anything that will bring destruction to it. It doesnt matter who the person is. That is what people should understand.

“And for those of us who chose peace, it is not because we are weak but because we know and value this State. Whatever achievement that has been recorded by the previous administration, it is important that we sustain it. And that is the reason why we toe the path of peace,” Fubara said.

The governor said public office holders should not talk carelessly.

He stressed that he is not a noise maker but a prudent leader, and that his achievements that are well documented will be displayed publicly at the appropriate time.
