Rivers State governor Fubara celebrates Supreme Court victory

Rivers State Governor Sim Fubara, has said that “one elephant is out of the road” as he celebrated the affirmation of his election by the Supreme Court.

Fubara noted that his triumph at the highest court in the country has put to bed the legal battles that contributed to the distractions his administration were entangled with in the past eight months.

According to a statement by his media assistant, Boniface Onyedi, the Rives state governor said: “About an hour ago, the Supreme Court revalidated our mandate in the election. It is a victory for the entire state.

“It is important for us to note that we need this victory to consolidate the purpose of governance. Prior, we have had a few distractions here and there.

“And the good news that came to us this morning is a refreshing strength that will encourage us to continue the good works in governance.”

Fubara thanked God for His help, and to President Bola Tinubu for his fatherly role in issues  bothering Rivers State.

He similarly appreciated Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, whom he described as his “Oga”, for all his support.

“We have a dream of making it a highly competitive state that will measure, if not up to Lagos but close to becoming like Lagos. We can only achieve this in an atmosphere of peace.

“So I am calling on everyone, not just on our internal issue but those members from other parties, the issue is settled, come and let’s build the Rivers State of our dream.

“We will continue to protect and provide the basic needs of governance to everyone who is doing business and who lives in Rivers State.

“We would address our state very soon on the victory, but for now, let everybody be happy that one elephant is out of the road, the other one, by God’s help, will be resolved amicably and the family will be one.”
