Wike: ‘I have chosen to be focused under pressure’ – Fubara says no crisis in Rivers

Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State has declared that there is no crisis in the state.

Rather, Fubara said his administration is focused on delivering good governance to the people of Rivers State.

He spoke while receiving members of the House of Representatives Committee on Public Petitions at the Government House in Port Harcourt.

Fubara assured that the political pressure would strengthen his administration’s commitment to service.

According to Fubara: “As far as we are concerned, there are no political issues. I had seen a movie many years ago, entitled, ‘Devil’s Advocate’. I believe some of you must have seen that movie too.

“One of the starring characters, Al Pacino, said that pressure makes some people retreat or fail, and to others, it makes them become focused on succeeding. We have chosen to be focused under this pressure.

“That is why we are moving ahead. That is why we are making a positive impact on the lives of our people. Governance is about the people. It is not about self.

“Governance is about touching the core needs of those people we are leading, and by the special grace of God, we are doing it.”

Shortly after Fubara assumed office as governor, he fell out with his predecessor, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.

Many believed that their face-off is linked to the political and financial control of the state.

The rift between the duo had forced President Bola Tinubu to intervene, making them to sign a peace-pact.

However, despite the peace pact, the crisis has continued.
