My political detractors now victims of their ploys, Fubara


Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, said his political detractors and those who planned to pull down the state, are now victims of their evil ploys, adding that God has finally liberated the state from its enemies.


Governor Fubara acknowledged with delight the assurances of brotherly and iron-clad support from the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), and urged the entire Ijaw Nation to key into the on-going celebration of the liberation the State is enjoying at the moment.


The Governor gave the charge while addressing the national and state leadership of Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), who were on solidarity walk to Government House in Port Harcourt on Thursday.


The solidarity walk was staged as part of activities to celebrate the heroic exploits of the late Major Isaac Adaka Boro, 56 years after his death, which is observed on 16th May every year.


Governor Fubara noted that Major Isaac Adaka Boro genuinely stood for equity, justice, and fair play, and pursued his course to ensure liberation for the Ijaw people and their clans.


The Governor emphasised that every genuine Rivers man is a liberator, adding that he was delighted to receive them on such auspicious day to re-enact the common purpose of liberation that they shared.


Governor Fubara, who thanked the large crowd for their assurances of being available to respond to his call and stand by him, should the need arises, said there would not be any need to cause disruption of the peace, as according to him, the enemies of the State have been defeated already.


 "Because he stood for that unique thing, even after his death, we still celebrate him because he was a liberator.


"Every Rivers man, it doesn't matter whether you are Ijaw or upland, the most important thing is that every genuine Rivers man must be a liberator.


"And I'm happy that you have come here today. I have also received you because we have one common purpose: to liberate our dear State.  We are not going back on that."


Governor Fubara said: "I am happy that you've told me this morning that when I call on you, you will respond. But there is nothing to call on you for, because we have already defeated them.


"By the special grace of God, what they thought that they would have done to us while we were celebrating our one year in office, they are the ones sleeping with their two eyes open. It shows that we have the Ijaw blood. And what is that blood: it is the blood of action; less talk, more action."


Governor Fubara appealed to Ijaw youths to conduct themselves peacefully as they celebrate the Major Isaac Adaka Boro Day, and also be good ambassadors of the entire Ijaw Nation.


He emphasised that it should be done in the same spirit that had enveloped the State now celebrating victory over his political detractors. He promised to support the IYC Eastern Zone to have a befitting Secretariat in Rivers State.
