Fubara Shows No Signs of Distress Over Appeal Court’s Ruling

Listen to article

Governor Siminalayi Fubara has dismissed any notion of concern or intimidation following the Appeal Court’s decision to reinstate Martin Amaewhule and 24 other lawmakers to the Rivers State House of Assembly, vowing to continue his work without distraction.

The Appeal Court’s latest verdict has effectively reversed a prior restraint imposed by a Rivers State High Court, allowing Martin Amaewhule and his fellow lawmakers, who owe allegiance to Minister Nyesom Wike, to once again take their seats in the State House of Assembly.

As part of its verdict, the court unequivocally established the Federal High Court as the exclusive forum for adjudicating the lawmakers’ matter, thereby forestalling potential legal challenges in lower courts.

Undeterred by the legal twists, Governor Fubara has reaffirmed his administration’s unwavering dedication to delivering vital infrastructure projects, crucial to catapulting the state’s development forward.

Governor Fubara personally surveyed the reconstruction progress at the Zonal Hospital in Bori Town, Khana Local Government Area, on Friday, and in response, he reaffirmed his administration’s unwavering commitment to enhancing the region’s healthcare infrastructure.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary or the governor, Nelson Chukwudi, and sent to newsmen.

The governor addressed the concerns expressed by Rivers people over recent pronouncements of the court and said there was no cause to worry because God has prepared him a table of blessings in the presence of his enemies.

“I know that a lot of you will be wondering what is going on and all that. The government has its challenges. If you go to the book of Psalm 23 verse 5, in the Bible, it says that God prepares a table before you; it can be before anybody.

“But there is an underlined word that should be noted there: it said ‘in the presence of your enemies’. So, it means that nothing comes easy.

“I want to assure every one of you and the good people of Rivers State, that we are not deterred. We have made our promises, and we will continue to give you good governance, no matter how difficult it is.

“But, like I said before, the worst is over. We are moving on to ensure that we continue to provide what is needed for the development of our state.”

Commenting on the project, Fubara pointed to sectors like healthcare, education, and agriculture as top priority areas that his administration will not compromise attention, and will do everything possible to ensure optimal services can be accessed by the people.

He explained: “We are here today. I believe that from next week, we should be visiting Degema, Ahoada, and Omoku, and also ensure that we visit the site of the Modern General and Psychiatric Hospitals in Rumuigbo to see the extent of work that is going on.

“But for now, we are satisfied with what we are seeing here. When we say: zonal hospital, this project is not just for the people of Khana. It is not just for the people of Gokana, even my own constituency, Opobo/Nkoro will also benefit from this facility.

“So, we are assuring the good people of this senatorial district that we will make sure that we put it to completion and good use,” he added.
