Fubara comments on the Supreme Court verdict, stating, “With one elephant out of the road, the other will be resolved amicably.”

Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State affirmed his dedication to the mandate for which he was elected, emphasizing that his administration will no longer be swayed by distractions.

Speaking on Thursday at the Government House in a briefing with journalists following the Supreme Court’s validation of his election as Rivers State governor, Fubara expressed that the court’s decision has put an end to the legal challenges that had been a source of distraction for his administration over the past eight months.

“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 to this moment, 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 work in governance,” Fubara said.

He conveyed his gratitude to God for His assistance and acknowledged President Bola Tinubu for his supportive role in addressing internal conflicts and legal challenges surrounding his election.

Furthermore, Governor Fubara expressed appreciation to his predecessor and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Chief Nyesom Wike, whom he affectionately referred to as his “Oga,” for the unwavering support provided.

The governor urged everyone to unite with his administration in efforts to develop a competitive state that would be recognized as genuinely prosperous in all aspects.

“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 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,” Fubara said.

He further said that he would soon address the good people of the state on the apex court victory.

“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.
