Rivers crisis: I fear nothing – Fubara dares Wike, others

Amid the political crisis in Rivers State, Governor Sim Fubara on Monday declared that he fears nothing because God is on his side.

Fubara said even though his detractors would gather and plan against him, such moves would end in futility.

The governor had been at loggerheads with his predecessor, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.

Fubara spoke during a Sallah solidarity visit by a delegation led by the Vice President General and Chairman, Association of South-South Muslim Ummah of Nigeria, Alhaji Nasir Awhelebe Uhor, to the Government House in Port Harcourt.

He said: “It is a difficult system but one with God is one with the majority. So, when you have God around, you need to fear nothing. They will plan, they will gather, but their gathering, at the end of the day, will be to your own glory.

“So, I can say boldly that God has been very faithful to us against the expectations of a lot of people. He’s been guiding us, holding us forth, and we can boldly beat our chest to say: so far, we have shown that we are a responsible government.

“We have shown that we mean well for Rivers people. We have shown that this is not just a government that merely wants to control: it is a government resolved to give everybody opportunity, a government that allows you to feel free, and operate within the laws. That is the only way we can move from where we are to a higher pedestal.”
