Rivers State Governor Warns Disrespectful Local Government Chairmen, Affirms Commitment to Public Welfare

Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, delivered a stern warning to local government chairmen in the state, cautioning those who disrespect his authority that they are digging their own political graves.

Speaking at the commissioning of the Comprehensive Primary Health Centre (PHC) in Ndoni, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni local government area, Fubara emphasized his commitment to serving the general interests of the Rivers people, rather than catering to the needs of a select few individuals.

The governor, echoing the endorsement of former Governor Peter Odili, reiterated his dedication to improving the social status of Rivers residents and enhancing their quality of life.

Fubara addressed criticism of his administration, particularly regarding road construction priorities, asserting that his focus remains on uplifting the welfare of the people. He warned local government chairmen against prioritizing personal interests over public service, cautioning them against undermining their own political careers.

Emphasizing his administration’s commitment to constructive criticism and good governance, Fubara affirmed his determination to build an egalitarian society where citizens feel empowered to voice their opinions freely.

Highlighting efforts in healthcare delivery, Fubara announced an increase in the employment quota for health sector personnel to address the inadequacies in staffing levels. He acknowledged the significant challenges faced by over 340 primary healthcare centers across the state upon assuming office and outlined ongoing rehabilitation efforts to improve their functionality.
