“In effect, we subscribe to the President’s effort at strengthening our economy, fighting insecurity and promoting peace and harmony in our dear country, Nigeria.
In the same vain, His Excellency, Amaopusenibo Sir Siminalayi Fubara was elected democratically as governor of Rivers State and also affirmed by the Supreme Court.

“As indigenes and critical stakeholders of Rivers State, we give our dear governor, our total loyalty and support for the progress of our state and through him, support the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as we believe that working together, the good and interest of Rivers State will be protected.”

He however told the president that a vast majority of Rivers people are solidly with “our governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara” and that they will not allow an “illegal and unconstitutional Assembly” of any sort to impeach or disrupt the smooth governance of in the state and cause a breach of public peace.
