Rivers governor Similanayi Fubara promises not to be as authoritarian as his predecessor.

The last Rivers governor was FCT minister Nyesom Wike, according to Politics Nigeria.

Fubara said this Tuesday at the Government House in Port Harcourt when he presented King Ateke Michael Tom, Amanyanabo of Okochiri Kingdom, with a Certificate of Recognition and Staff of Office.

Fubara stated his administration will work with many partners to create a free and peaceful nation.

As a state-minded person, he wants to leave a permanent legacy that can be cherished.

Fubara honours actual leaders of Rivers State at his mother-in-law’s burial without Wike.

We must all stand for what is right at a crossroads in our state once in a lifetime. For now, join the cause to liberate and free our beloved state, Fubara stated.

I am confident that with the assistance of a peace-loving Amanyanabo of Okochiri Kingdom, the beautiful Council of Chiefs, and the great people of Rivers State, we will bring peace to our state. The appropriate things will be done to build our state.

Consultation will continue. We will not be dictators. We will act as if we will depart one day, and our actions will speak for us. No one will be forced to praise us. Our legacy will reflect our leadership.”

Fubara revealed that he upgraded King Ateke Tom’s traditional stool within the law to honour his peace promotion in Okrika and the state.
