In a veiled attack on Wike, Gov Fubara says, “I won’t govern like a dictator”

In what appears like a veiled attack on his predecessor with whom he had running battle after taking over the mantle of leadership of the oil rich Rivers State, Governor Siminalayi Fubara of
Rivers State said he would not operate like a dictator.

Speaking at Government House, Port Harcourt, during the formal presentation of Certificate of Recognition and Staff of Office to the Amanyanabo of Okochiri Kingdom, King Ateke Michael Tom, on Tuesday, Fubara said his administration will collaborate and continue to consult widely in delivering a liberated state experiencing enduring peace.

He said as someone with the interest of the state at heart, he is determined to leave a lasting legacy that can be celebrated.

“We are at a crossroad in our state where we all need to stand for what is right. It happens once in a life time. So, for now, be one of those people that will be in the course to liberate and free our dear State.”

“And I know strongly that having the support of a peace-loving Amanyanabo of Okochiri Kingdom, having the support of the wonderful Council of Chiefs, having the support of the great people of Rivers State, we will bring peace to our State. We will do those things that are right to develop our State.

“We will continue to consult. We will not act as dictators. We will act as people who know that one day, we will leave, and when we leave, the way we have acted will speak for us. We will not force people to talk good about us. Our legacy will be a signature for how we led.”

Governor Fubara explained that he acted within the ambit of the law to upgrade the traditional stool upon which King Ateke Tom sits in recognition of his efforts in promoting peace in Okrika, and indeed, the State, and urged him to continue to do justice to everyone.
