Governor of Rivers State Siminalayi Fubara has reassured the populace of his state that his administration is dedicated to providing civil personnel with their due position in order to bolster the service sector and promote the state’s maximum productivity and growth.

He said that this is because his administration recognises and understands the predicament faced by both public and civil servants in the state.

During a peaceful petition walk to the Government House in Port Harcourt on Wednesday, members of the Forum of Rivers State Government Teachers with Doctor of Philosophy were addressed by Fubara, who provided the assurance.

In order to request their transfer from public primary and secondary schools to state-run postsecondary institutions, forum members gathered at Government House.

Fubara assured them that his government would give the matter due attention, keeping in mind the administration’s core goals of always acting morally and properly in order to benefit the Rivers people. Fubara was represented by Dr. Tammy Danagogo, the Secretary to the Rivers State Government.

He said:

“I think basically, the issue here is PhD holders who are under the employment of the state that are craving for proper placement.

“You are already Rivers State Government workers, but you have read to the level where you need to be promoted, and actually, it is the desire of everybody.

“You must understand that our present governor, given his background as a technocrat and civil servant, understands and appreciates the plight of civil and public servants in the state.

“When it comes to workers’ issues, we don’t advise him, he will rather advise us, and that is how it is because he went through it from the beginning of his days as a young graduate. He was also a teacher before he transferred to the mainstream civil service.

“So, he truly understands your plight. He is a man that in everything he does, tries to look at what is right in the circumstances; what is proper in the circumstances; and what will bring the best benefit to Rivers State. So, your case can never be different. ”
