Fubara calls for peaceful atmosphere in Rivers amid political tensions


Rivers State Governor Sim Fubara has urged residents of the state to maintain a peaceful atmosphere, emphasizing that progress cannot be achieved in an environment of violence.

Fubara’s appeal comes amid ongoing political tensions between him and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, which have strained the state’s political landscape.

Speaking during the funeral service of the late King Theophilus J.T. Princewill, Amachree XI, the Amanyanabo and Natural Ruler of the Kalabari Kingdom, Fubara stressed the importance of peace in fostering development.

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

He reiterated that peace is the cornerstone of development, urging all residents to embrace it.

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