Demarket Rivers, you’ll have yourself to blame – Fubara warn residents

Governor Sim Fubara on Friday cautioned residents of the Rivers State against demarketing the state.

Fubara said demarketing the state would scare investors away, hence residents will have themselves to blame.

He spoke while receiving a delegation of leaders and members of the Rivers State Waste Management Agency, RIWAMA, who were on a solidarity walk to the Government House in Port Harcourt.

Represented by the Head of Rivers State Civil Service, Dr George Nwaeke, Fubara promised that the social contract between his administration and Rivers people would remain an unbroken bond to drive governance.

He said: “If we join to demarket our state, we will have ourselves to blame. When we demarket Port Harcourt, demarket Rivers State and all the good people that want to bring in their money to invest here begin to run away, remember that it is our own future that we are destroying.

“Do you want the future of your children to be destroyed? The time to rebuild is now. And we have someone who knows how to lay the foundation. The governor is laying very good foundations. This governor, if you watch carefully, what he is doing, is busy laying the foundation that will benefit all of us.

“He is a statesman, not the typical politician thinking of the next election. He is not fighting those perceived not to have voted for him or not supporting him.

“He is thinking of the next generation. It is the next generation that will, on their own, say this man that has secured our future when we never knew it, we will stand up for him.

“Look at the Rivers Transport Company that was shut down, it has been resuscitated. Will the children of the workers consider that as a joke? Won’t such people be part of the electoral force standing with the governor?”
