Fubara praises citizens’ support, preaches peace

Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has lauded the support and feeling of liberation from the citizens of the state, stating that they appreciate the tenable sacrifices and commitment of his administration.

The governor said this at the special event organised by the Okrika Council of Chiefs and the people of Okrika to honour the Amanyanabo of Okochiri Kingdom, King Ateke Tom, at the Okrika National School field on Saturday.

The amanyanabo (king) of Okochiri Kingdom, King Ateke Tom was bestowed with the honour of Be Se Poku by the apex body of traditional rulers and the people of Okrika.

Fubara stated, “If you love your state, you will not be any part of anything that will bring destruction to it. It doesn’t 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 has been recorded by the previous administration, we must sustain it. And that is the reason why we toe the path of peace.

“Look at what is happening in the 23 local government areas in the State. I am not asking anybody to go around to do thanksgiving as some of you might be thinking. These are people who wake up in the morning and say, we have been liberated. We want to tell people that we exist.”
