Governor Siminalayi Fubara has threatened to surprise anybody who considered his honest decision to implement the presidential peace pact as a sign of weakness.

Fubara said this while receiving members of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) from the 23 local government areas on a solidarity rally at Government House Gate, in Port Harcourt.

He emphasised that the peace deal initiated by President Bola Tinubu was a political solution to the crisis that engulfed the State on October 30,2023.

Fubara said he only decided to immediately begin the implementation of the agreement solely because of his respect for President Tinubu but observed that other political actors had taken his humility and compliance as a sign of weakness.

“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.”

He said the large number of NULGE members further goes to prove the nature of the organic support his administration has continued to enjoy from the people of the State.

Fubara said: “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 has been at loggerheads with his political godfather and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike and has been threatened multiple times with impeachment by Lawmakers in the House of Assembly loyal to Wike.
