Peace Pact: Let No One Takes My Implementation As Weakness, Fubara Fires Back At Critics

Lucky Obukohwo, Reporting

The Governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara has taken the war back to the camp of those criticizing his decision to implement the Peace Pact, saying that it should not be taken as a sign of cowardice but respect for President Bola Tinubu.

This was contained in a press statement issued in Port Harcourt on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Nelson Chukwudi, and made available to newsmen.

Fubara said he had been bombarded with several comments in the media about the implementation of the peace initiative and had chosen to be silent out of maturity and wisdom.

The governor, however, said it was important to put the records straight for clarity, saying accepting President Bola Tinubu’s intervention and accompanying agreement was a political solution.

Fubara said he had since then commenced implementation of the agreement because of his respect for Tinubu and not as a sign of weakness as believed by other political actors.

“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”, Fubara said.
