Peter Odili Assures Fubara of his Support for his Administration


By Uche Amunike

Former Rivers State governor, Dr. Peter Odili has assured the incumbent governor of the state, Siminalayi Fubara, of his total support for his government.

He made this disclosure on Saturday, during the inauguration of the dualized Omoku-Egbema Road project, in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area (ONELGA) of the state.

While he commended Fubara for the projects he delivered in the area, Peter Odili advised him to be focused on the people and continue to empower the less privileged, while offering hope to those that do not have people to help them face life’s challenges.

Hear him: ‘I can tell our people that the next election is very far, but what the Governor has done so far, is enough to secure the support of Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area going forward.

‘Thank you, Your Excellency, because the greatest assets of the State remain the people, not oil and gas. The people remain the greatest assets.’

‘So, once your focus remains with the people, especially the less-privileged, the poor, those who are struggling to feed everyday. Once they remain your focus, I want to agree with you that the sky would become the takeoff point of your administration’, the former Governor stated.

He also gave the assurance that the people of Rivers State  are solidly committed to Fubara’s vision, which is why they are ‘rallying support for him because they trust him, believing in what he says and convinced that he means whatever he says.’

On his part, Governor Fubara has said that one thing his administration would not do is, to politicize the delivery of the development projects and social services carried out by his government because they are carried out in order to solve the pertinent problems faced by the people of Rivers State.

He further assured that even though all societal and human challenges cannot be solved at once, his government will fulfill all promises made, with the available resources within his capacity and be delivered promptly.

His words: ‘When the project was added to the list of projects to mark our one year in office, there was a challenge, but the contractor assured of delivering it, which is a reality today.’

‘What are we doing today? We are here to tell our people that they are the most important thing to us. We are here to assure you that every part of this State will have positive impact of our administration.’

He further stated: ‘If within this short period, we could deliver this to our people who were yearning for this road, crying and complaining, it is a sign that this government has the interest of the people of ONELGA at heart.’

‘So, I want to assure you: don’t let anybody deceive you anywhere. This is the right boat to join. The captain of this boat, his own mantra is ‘The People First’. So, I assure you, with your support, the sky is our beginning.’

He added that it would not be right for him to take the people of ONELGA for granted, especially as the campaigns leading his election kicked off in the area where he solicited their support.

He asserted that because of their commitment of offering him their votes, his team was able to attain the position they have found themselves today in government. He also said that the reason why he invited Dr Peter Odili to carry out the inauguration ceremony was because he needed someone that understood the needs of the Rivers State people.
