No crisis in Rivers – Fubara

The governor of Rivers state, Simi Fubara, has insisted there is no crisis in the state.

According to him, the people in the state are enjoying peace and economic growth.

Fubara claimed that the recent negative narrative that portrays the state as immersed in crisis with disrupted peace is untrue, misguided, and the handiwork of mischief makers.

Fubara spoke to newsmen in the Egbelu Community shortly after inspecting the progress of work on the 14.6km Omodu-Eberi Road project in the Omuma Local Government Area of the state on Thursday.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Nelson Chukwudi.

The governor said it was important that Nigerians know of the uninterrupted peaceful atmosphere in the state because the people are going about their normal activities while governance is thriving.

He stated, “And to also tell Nigerians that Rivers State is peaceful. You can see that we are moving about inspecting projects, as opposed to what you see on the screens of your television sets: police are everywhere, we don’t move about anymore, and Rivers State is under siege.

“We are not under siege. Our state is free and peaceful. If at all there is any problem in any part of the state, I know quite well that Nigerians know where the problem is coming from, not from us.”
