Rivers State: Governor Fubara Urges Traditional Rulars to Work with Communities for Peace

Sir Siminalayi Fubara, Rivers State Governor, has cautioned the traditional Rulers not to allow evil elements destabilize the peace and harmony in the locality.

Speaking in reaction to the gruesome murder of late DPO Bako Angbashim of Ahoada, during the commissioning of Mgbuodohia Internal Roads Project in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, the governor  Said “any traditional ruler found culpable in the act would face serious sanctions from the government.

Fubara declared that sustainable development in Rivers State wouldn’t be possible without the existence of peace and harmonious relationship. He charged them to be vigilant and support his administration’s effort in peace building and development of the state.

“Everybody needs to work together to sustain peace and respect for the state. Any traditional ruler supporting cultism that is beginning to be a problem to us, I assure you that as I have started with Ahoada East, I will come after you.”

The governor restated the commitment of his administration to the continuity and consolidation mantra, noting that the completion and commissioning of the Mgbuodohia Internal Roads Project was a manifestation of that commitment.

“When we were appealing and seeking the support of the people of Mgbuodohia, we promised, and the then governor assured you that his successor will complete the project. Today, we are here to bring alive that promise.

“To us as a government, our mantra is consolidation and continuity. We will continue to consolidate on every good project, every noble idea initiated. We will give all the necessary support to see that they continue to come to limelight”.

In his address, the Chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, Barrister George Ariolu, said the completion and commissioning of the Mgbuodohia Internal Roads Project was part of the joy derived by the Obio/Akpor people in giving their overwhelming support to the governor.

The governor maintained that his administration will continue to build the state through a holistic developmental stride in all parts of the state.

“When we were appealing and seeking the support of the people of Mgbuodohia, we promised, and the then governor assured you that his successor will complete the project. Today, we are here to bring alive that promise.
