Rivers LG chairmen disrespecting me are digging their pit – Fubara

Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has knocked local government chairmen and other political appointees who disrespect him, saying they are digging a pit they will fall into.


Fubara stated this on Thursday, April 11 while inaugurating the Comprehensive Primary Healthcare Centre in Ndoni in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area of the state, built by former Rivers State Governor, Dr Peter Odili.

Fubara had expressed shock at seeing the Chairman of ONELGA, at the event, saying usually any state function, council chairmen stayed away because, according to him, they are not loyal to him.


Fubara said,

 “I’m surprised that I saw the chairman of Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government here. I’m very surprised because before now, any event that had to do with the state government, all the local government chairmen, as it were, didn’t participate.”

Addressing the ONELGA boss, Fubara said;


“I hope when you leave here, they are not going to sack you because I know you are not loyal to me. Or when you leave here, you will grant a press interview that it was not you, but your shadow?


“But let me say it here. Every one of you who thinks you are disrespecting me, you have already dug your pit. You will fall inside it. That is the truth.


“Our minds are very open. We do not wish anyone bad, but we expect you to know and do what is right. For those of you who have chosen to take the part that you think is that way that leads to your salvation, safe journey.”

While pledging the support of his administration to President Bola Tinubu, he said, 

“We made a promise to Mr. President to support him, and we will continue to support him. How do we support him?


“It is to ensure that the welfare of our people is provided for. It is to ensure that our people, those in critical need, make them happy in this harsh economic situation.  If we cannot solve all the problems, at least we will go as much as we can to mitigate those basic challenges. That is the only way to support Mr. President.”
