Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara has warned that he will surprise those who see his sincere determination to implement the presidential peace accord as a show of weakness.

Fubara stated that he had received numerous comments in the media regarding the implementation of the peace initiative and had opted to remain silent out of maturity and wisdom.

However, the governor stated that it was critical to correct the record for clarity, and that accepting President Bola Tinubu’s involvement and accompanying agreement was a political solution.

This was said in a statement published on Wednesday in Port Harcourt by his Chief Press Secretary, Nelson Chukwudi, and made available to journalists.

Fubara stated that he has since begun implementing the deal out of respect for Tinubu, rather than as a sign of weakness, as some political actors believe.

The governor said:

“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.

”I am doing it because of the respect I have for Mr President. But, let me say 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 a crowd for thanksgiving. But what I have seen here today is not different from what is happening at those thanksgiving rallies. People are just appreciating God and good governance.

“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.”
