Fubara sends strong warning to pro-Wike lawmakers in Rivers, says his humility is not a sign of weakness

Rivers Governor Siminalayi Fubara has sent a serious warning to Rivers Assembly lawmakers loyal to his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, over the recent impeachment threat, saying his honest decision to implement the presidential peace pact isn’t a sign of weakness.

Recall that some pro-Wike lawmakers had threatened to impeach Fubara over his alleged failure to implement the presidential peace pact.

In a statement on Wednesday, Fubara vowed to “surprise” anybody who dared him or considered his honest decision to implement the presidential peace pact as a sign of weakness.

Fubara noted that he had been inundated with comments in the media about the implementation of the peace initiative but chosen to be silent out of maturity and wisdom.

He emphasised that the peace pact initiated by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and accepted by all stakeholders including him was a political solution to the crisis that engulfed the State i. October 2023.


Fubara said he only decided to immediately begin the implementation of the agreement solely because of his respect for President Tinubu.

“Let me say it here for record purposes: What is happening here in our dear State is somebody who has respect for an elder,” Fubara said in a statement by his chief press secretary, Nelson Chukwudi.

“Mr. President invited all the parties to Abuja and came out with a resolution that we should go and implement. That resolution, I am implementing it. It is not a constitutional implementation. It is a political solution to a problem.

“And I am doing it because of the respect I have for Mr President. But, let me say it here, if that action that I have accepted to take would be seen as a weakness, I will surprise them. I want this message to go to them.”

Fubara spoke while receiving members of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) from the 23 local government areas on a solidarity rally at Government House Gate, in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.

He said their large number was proof of the organic support his administration had continued to enjoy from the people of the state.

He said: “Some days ago, somebody said we are busy renting crowd for thanksgiving. But what I have seen here today, it’s not different from what is happening at those thanksgiving rallies. People are just appreciating God and good governance.

“For our people, the great and wonderful people of Rivers State, we will continue to lead you with the fear of God.

“Maturity is not about age, maturity is in the person. It is what defines the character of a person. I choose not to respond to people that I assumed are matured, but are obviously immature in attitude.

“I will continue to be mature, not minding my age, but I will not, for any reason, allow myself or anybody who is working with me in this administration to be messed with, maltreated or abused in the cause of administering this governance.”

Fubara said that he was mindful of the legacy he would bequeath after his tenure.

“It should also be about the lives that have been touched genuinely; about the policies implemented without any inducement to better the lives of the people and the society,” he said.
