I will not surrender my mandate to intimidation – Gov Siminalayi Fubara

PLACE YOUR ADVERT HERE

Siminalayi Fubara, the governor of Rivers State, has promised the people of Rivers that no amount of intimidation or sabotage would cause him to give up the mandate given to him.

The governor stated this while while declaring open the 115 and 116 combined Quarterly General Meeting of Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers in Port Harcourt on Thursday.

Fubara said, “Although these are trying times, let us not forget that Rivers State is our collective inheritance, presently under my watch, to protect, defend and advance it as the Governor.

“I assure you that I will not fail in this responsibility nor will I surrender our mandate and progress to intimidation, blackmail and deliberate sabotage.

“I reaffirm my earlier statement and recommit myself to the path of peace as there is nothing to gain in a state of needless crisis.”

The governor’s statement is in light of the current political dispute between him and his former principal, Nyesom Wike, whom he worked with to become the governor of the state.
