I Won’t Surrender To Blackmail, Intimidation – Fubara
Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State has emphasized that no deliberate act of sabotage orchestrated by certain quarters will deter him from fulfilling the mandate entrusted to him – to serve, protect, and advance the fortunes of the state.
Fubara made this declaration on Thursday during the opening of the 115th and 116th combined Quarterly General Meeting of the Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers in Port Harcourt. He reiterated his unwavering commitment to serving with humility, sincerity of purpose, and accountability.
The governor stated, “Although these are trying times, let us not forget that Rivers State is our collective inheritance, presently under my watch, to protect, defend, and advance it as the governor.
“I assure you that I will not fail in this responsibility, nor will I surrender our mandate and progress to intimidation, blackmail, and deliberate sabotage.
“I reaffirm my earlier statement and recommit myself to the path of peace, as there is nothing to gain in a state of needless crisis.”
