Joel Osaigbovo Aluge, Reporting

Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has called on support group in the state not to panic, that he deserves to serve out his tenure.

He assured them of his administration’s determination to protect the lives and property of residents.

The governor vowed to do everything legally to improve and protect the collective aspirations of the people.

Fubara revealed this on Wednesday when he addressed members of the Family Support Group, who visited the Government House in Port Harcourt.

For instance, Family Support Group comprised of well-meaning Rivers youths, women and men drawn from the three senatorial districts of the state.

The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Nelson Chukwudi reported that Head of the Civil Service, Dr. George Nwaeke, represented Governor Fubara.

Dr. Nwaeke, assured them of Fubara’s administration commitment to deliver good governance and quality services across all sectors.

He expressed joy over undying interest of youths in government and their willingness to defend their votes.

Thus he stated: “The whole land of Rivers State stands in affirmation that we won the election fairly and deserve to serve out our full tenure.”

As a result, “there is not anything that will cut short the popular mandate you all gave to this administration.”

For instance, within some weeks of assumption of office,  His Excellency, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, flagged off the Port Harcourt Ring Road project that transverses six local governments.

He promised to complete the road project within 36 months.

“But because the progress of work we have seen goes beyond our initial thoughts, therefore, I think it will be completed before the time,” Dr. Nwaeke said.

“The official main Trans-Kalabari Road will start very soon and will begin from Port Harcourt.”

Also, “a lot of plans have been made for that road, and very soon, people will see contractors on site, and Rivers State will be opened.”

“Just yesterday, you heard in the news also that the governor has commenced the construction of the Elele-Egbeda-Omoku Road.”

He said the road initially done with one lane, would now be dualized, as the government has awarded the contract.

Furthermore, he described his administration as pro-youth and pro-human beings that and determined to maintain empathy and inclusivity.

He added, “I therefore, want to thank you for the promise you have made, I want you to remain unshakable.”

“When you hear anything outside, be bold to defend the Governor, and tell people the things you know about him.”

“Tell them what you know he has done to develop the state and the people.”

In his address, the President General of Family Support Group, Mr Henry Abraham, recalled their experience during the 2023 elections.

He said they voted and defended their votes because the process was violence-free and credible.

“When we defend our votes, we will also defend the man we voted for,” Abraham assured.

Moreover, “We are a Family Support Group, Rivers State belongs to all of us. Rivers State is not a personal estate of one man; it’s for all Rivers people.”

“Sir Siminalayi Fubara, stand firm. The Family Support Group is with you. The wards’ coordinators are with you. All the wards’ executives are with you.”

“The LGA coordinators are with you. Officers of the National Executive Committee are with you. All our leaders are with you, and the PDP is with you,” he concluded.
