1st Anniversary: Fubara Ascribes Successes Of Rivers Govt To God’s Grace

Amid the political crisis rocking Rivers State, Governor Siminalayi Fubara, on Tuesday, attributed his administration’s successes to the grace of God.

Governor Fubara made this remark while speaking at the state banquet hall at the state house to celebrate his first year in office and the 57th anniversary of the creation of Rivers State.

According to him, the successes recorded so far were possible because God has been graciously upholding the government, offering it the right direction and giving it the strength to carry on.

He acknowledged that while others were celebrating one full year of service to the people, he has only actually been in control of real governance characterized by prudence, purposefulness and protection of the interest of the state in the last four months.

Under his watch, the governor said the Rivers State Government has provided “Governance that has the interest of our people at heart.


“We decided to have this banquet today to say ‘thank you, thank you and thank you to every one of you. You have supported us.’

“The last time I had this opportunity to dine with you was on the 1st of January, 2024, and you know, the mood was not like this. We never knew we could even stand up till today.”

Governor Fubara further said, “You see the reason why we need to give God all the glory. It is very simple. One thing is very important and unique; we are succeeding because we are on the side of God.

“It is not just standing on the side of God; because everybody professes to be standing on the side of God, even the native doctor would call on God.

“But what is important is God being in your business. God is in our business. And because He is in our business, we will continue to survive, no matter where they are coming from.”

Fubara insisted that his purpose in government is to deliver the dividends of democracy to Rivers people, which will not be compromised.

The governor said: “It takes somebody who loves this State genuinely to embark on a project like the Trans-Kalabari Road. I am not from that axis of the riverine, where somebody would say I’m doing it because I’m from there. No. That project alone will cost this government over N225 billion.”
