The Governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara has called for unity and cooperation from traditional rulers across the state, emphasizing the critical role of collective efforts in fostering peace and progress within the region.

Addressing the esteemed leaders, Fubara recounted a past incident involving a predecessor who issued threats to a traditional leader during a visit to Ahoada-East in Ekpeye land.

Fubara highlighted his commitment to a more collaborative and respectful approach.

His words, “I remembered when we went to Ahoada-East, Ekpeye land, to perform an activity, a former Governor openly threatened one of you and warned that if you try it, I will do this, I will do that,”

Contrasting this previous approach, Fubara underscored the importance of mutual respect and cooperation, appealing to the traditional rulers to join hands with his administration to ensure the sustained development and stability of Rivers State.

“Unity and cooperation among our traditional rulers are paramount,” Governor Fubara stated. “Together, we can create a peaceful and progressive environment for all our people. My administration is committed to working with you, respecting your esteemed positions, and ensuring that we move forward together.”
