Good Governance’ – No More Political Crisis In RiversFubara—-Rivers governor Siminalayi Fubara insists there is no political crisis in the state and that he is focused on providing good governance.

Fubara spoke on Sunday when members of the House of Representatives’ public petitions committee paid him a visit in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

The Rivers governor said governance is about meeting the core needs of the population, and he has decided to be focused while under pressure.

“As far as we are concerned, there are no political issues. I saw a movie many years ago, titled: ‘Devil’s Advocate.’ I believe some of you must have seen that movie too,” Fubara was quoted as saying in a statement by Nelson Chukwudi, his chief press secretary.

“One of the starring characters: Al Pacino said pressure makes some people retreat or fail, and to others, it makes them become focused to succeed. 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 in 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.

“We will not oppress anybody. We will not force anybody against their will. We will not intimidate anybody, because intimidation has an expiration date.”

Fubara and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, who is now the minister of the federal capital territory (FCT), have been at loggerheads in the past few months over control of political structures in Rivers.
