Rivers peaceful, not under siege - Fubara

Gov. Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers has assured residents that the state remains peaceful, countering concerns about instability. 

During an inspection of the 14.6km Omodu-Eberi Road project in Omuma Local Government Area on Thursday, Fubara stated that Rivers people were experiencing a calm and stable environment. He emphasized that it was inaccurate to claim the state was in crisis.

“Rivers people are living peacefully in their various communities; projects are ongoing without challenges.

“The negative narrative about the state being in crisis is misguided, unpatriotic and mischievous

“It is important for people to know that governance is ongoing, movement of people is unhindered, social and economic activities are going on smoothly.

“If there is any problem anywhere, I know that Nigerians know where the problem is coming from, it’s not from us,” he said.

Fubara said that the Omodu-Eberi Road project was delayed because of the government’s decision to increase the length.

“It was an eight kilometre long road, but we decided to increase it to 14.6km in order to link up with Abia,” he said.
