Governor Fubara speaks after Appeal Court ruling reinstated Pro-Wike’s Lawmakers

Governor Siminanayi Fubara of Rivers State has reassured the public not to be concerned about the Appeal Court’s decision overturning the High Court’s ruling that removed 27 lawmakers loyal to Governor Wike.

Speaking to journalists after inspecting projects in Khana Local Government Area, Governor Fubara expressed confidence, citing divine blessings amid challenges as the reason for his unwavering calmness 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 emphasised that health, education, and agriculture are pivotal sectors that his administration prioritises without compromise. He affirmed his commitment to ensuring that these sectors deliver optimal services accessible to all citizens.

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.”
