Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, on Wednesday, vowed to “surprise” those who consider his decision to implement President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s peace pact as a sign of weakness.

His reaction is coming days after the Rivers House of Assembly threatened to commence fresh impeachment proceedings against him.

Speaking when he received members of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) from the 23 Local Government Areas of Rivers on a solidarity visit to Government House, Port Harcourt, Fubara said he had been swamped with several comments about the implementation of the peace initiative, and chose to be silent out of maturity and wisdom.

According to him, it was important to put the records straight for clarity.

He explained that when the President intervened in the political crisis that engulfed the state in 2023, the agreement that was accepted was a political solution.

However he stated that it appears that other political actors have taken his compliance as a sign of weakness.

“Let me say it here for record purposes: What is happening here in our dear State is somebody who has respect for an elder. Mr. President invited all the parties to Abuja, and came out with a resolution that we should go and implement. That resolution, I am implementing it. It is not a constitutional implementation. It is a political solution to a problem.

“And I am doing it because of the respect I have for Mr President. But, let me say it here, if that action that I have accepted to take would be seen as a weakness, I will surprise them. I want this message to go to them.

“Some days ago, somebody said we are busy renting crowd for thanksgiving. But what I have seen here today, it’s not different from what is happening at those thanksgiving rallies. People are just appreciating God and good governance.”

Fubara stated that he was mindful of the legacy he would bequeath after his tenure, adding “It should also be about the lives that have been touched genuinely; about the policies implemented without any inducement to better the lives of the people and the society.

“When you are doing what is right, I will stand by you. Nobody, whether full or half is going to intimidate you. Brace up, I say brace up, because the next step, it will be fire for fire in Rivers State. Everything will be implemented.”
