Fubara Speaks On Reinstatement Of Pro-Wike’s Lawmakers

The Governor of Rivers State, Similanayi Fubara, on Friday, spoke on the ruling of the Appeal Court which overruled the high court judgement that sacked the 27 pro-Wike lawmakers.

Fubara, in his reaction to the Appeal Court ruling, said there was no cause to worry over the judgement.

The Rivers State Governor, who spoke to journalists shortly after an inspection of projects in Khana, Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State on Friday, said because God had prepared him a table of blessings in the presence of his enemies, he was not worried over the ruling.

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.”

Governor Fubara speaking on the project, identified health, education, and agriculture as top priority sectors where his administration would not compromise attention and would do everything possible to ensure optimal services can be accessed by the people.

He said: “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.”

Governor Fubara explained that his administration did not meet any functional zonal hospital, stressing that because it wanted quality healthcare facilities for the people, funds were released about a month ago for the reconstruction and expansion of four zonal hospitals.
