We’re In Difficult Period, Be Peaceful – Fubara Begs Rivers People


Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State has begged the people of his state to remain peaceful.


According to him, the state is currently undergoing a difficult period.


Fubara said a peaceful atmosphere would enable his administration to achieve its development strides.


The governor spoke against the background of the rift battle between him and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, which led to political tension in the state.


He said his administration can’t achieve any progress in a violent atmosphere.


He spoke during the funeral service of late King Theophilus J.T. Princewill, Amachree XI, the Amanyanabo and Natural Ruler of the Kalabari Kingdom, held at the King Amachree Square in Buguma Town, Asari Toru Local Government Area on Thursday.


According to Fuabara: “We are in a difficult period, but just be peaceful. We cannot achieve progress in an environment of violence. We cannot grow our State to the level of our aspirations when there is trouble.


“We can only advance to our dream State in a peaceful environment. I urge every one of you to be peaceful. Peace is the only instrument that can bring development.”
