Rivers State Governor, Sir Similanayi Fubara, has said those fighting him want to take away the red biro from him. The red biro signifies his signatory authority as the executive governor of Rivers State.

Fubara, who spoke at the crossover church service at St Paul’s Archdeaconry Parish in Opobo in Opobo/Nkoro Local Government Area of the state, said he was not pretentious about his commitment to providing quality leadership.

He said those fighting his administration wanted to dampen the spirit of Rivers people and forcefully truncate the pace of development, but failed.

He therefore encouraged Rivers people not to be disheartened over the ongoing crisis because nothing would stop him from steering the affairs of the state successfully.

“What they want is this red biro but it is still with me. We are the winners because we are still signing with the red biro. As long as we are signing with the red biro, development will continue in Rivers State,” he said.

Governor Fubara emphasised that nothing would stop his administration from getting to its destination because its foundation was laid solidly in God who alone would give the grace to complete the process of building.

The governor said that there was a designed development agenda and level of progress determined for Rivers State in 2024, stressing that he would not relent in working for the good of the state.

Fubara expressed gratitude to President Bola Tinubu for the fatherly role he played when he intervened to in restoring peace in Rivers State.

“Like I keep saying, it takes a responsible man to be a father. He acted like a father. On our part, we will continue to give him all the necessary support because if he does not succeed in Rivers State, he will not succeed as a president.

“So, as a state, we will continue to give him every support. We are not pretenders. Our support is genuine and it is to uplift his programmes. Our sacrifices are part of the support,” he added.

Governor Fubara also thanked Rivers people for their unwavering support, describing them as believers in true Rivers State and urged them to trust the decisions he takes.

In his sermon, Bishop of the Diocese of Niger Delta, Right Reverend Emmanuel Oko-Jaja admonished on the 2024 Theme, which is “I will never forget you,” and assured that God will surely restore Nigeria to its expected height of glory and stable economy.

Bishop Oko-Jaja said that it is God’s will not to disappoint those who put their trust in him in 2024 because they will enjoy his providence, and guidance as he turns every event in their lives into promotion, keeping them far away from confusion and the spirit of wondering.
