Fubara is the political leader of Rivers State

A former governor of Rivers State, Peter Odili, has expressed support for Governor Siminalayi Fubara, amid the political crisis between him and FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike.

Odili, who mentored Wike, on Thursday, April 11, declared Fubara as the political leader of Rivers State, saying the people of the state supported him and would follow his leadership.

Fubara, last October, survived an impeachment attempt by members of the Rivers State House of Assembly loyal to Wike and has since been embroiled in a tussle for political control of the stage with Wike.

Speaking on Thursday, April 11, during the inauguration of the Integrated Primary Health Center at Ndoni in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area of ​​the state, built and donated by Odili, the former governor commended the achievements of Fubara since taking office on May 29.

Odili said;

“Our people said I should tell you to stand firm with the President, align with his quality policies and take Rivers people to the government engine room in the Federal Republic, Abuja.

“For those who haven’t bothered to pay attention, if you look at the map of Nigeria, the entire map of Nigeria is in Rivers State.

“When Rivers State coughs, Nigeria will catch a cold. Therefore, consider your office fundamental and vital. Do not look back. It's not a question of age. It's a matter of your people being with you. And I was asked to tell you that you are the political leader of Rivers State. River people say that wherever you go, they will go with you. Wherever you are, they will be with you.

“You are on solid ground. Stay there, cling to God; the rest of the trip will be a breeze. “

Odili said he decided to undertake the project because two years ago, when floods devastated the town of Ndoni, the community health center was destroyed, leaving people without immediate health services.

“Let me congratulate you for winning the hearts of the people of Rivers by fulfilling your oath to defend the interests of all the people of Rivers in accordance with the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, we are proud of you.

“Politics is over and now it is time for governance and you started working, you touched critical sectors such as education, health and others in less than a year in office”, said Odili.
