Rivers governor, Siminialayi Fubara says he will continue to seek guidance from his predecessor, Nyesom Wike to enable him to perform excellently in office.

The governor noted the enormous responsibility associated with governance and the success record of Wike that he inherited, which greatly motivates his administration.

Governor Fubara spoke at the grand reception organized by the chiefs, leaders, and stakeholders of Obio-Akpor Local Government Area for Wike at Captain Elechi Amadi Polytechnic in the Rumuola community.

The grand reception for Wike was a warm welcome back home staged by Obio-Akpor people for their son for representing the Ikwerre ethnic nationality and the State well, while he served as governor of Rivers State.

Governor Fubara said the available evidence of the performance of the former governor tells of the giant strides of a man who has gallantly ended another phase of public service.

He asserted that the former governor conceived a vision of leadership, and followed it through conclusively without compromising it.

“It’s not how the story starts, it is how it ended. Available evidence around us is showing clearly that the story of my principal (former governor Wike) has not ended, but he’s ended this phase well.”

“It ended because he had a vision. It ended well because that vision was not compromised, he followed it to the end.”

“So, I was to join the people of Obio/Akpor to congratulate you and to say you are a worthy son, that is why your people have to receive you and welcome you home.”

Governor Fubara stated that he is an unapologetic benefactor of Wike who is determined to continue to study the administrative prowess of political calculations, decisions, and exploits in order not to disappoint Rivers people.

“As one of your benefactors, I will continue to study you. I have not learned all that I need to learn. I still need to learn more because this business (of governance) is not an easy business. It’s a business that, life can be very white in the morning, and in the afternoon it’s grey.”

“So, I still need that guidance from you. I will still come to you whenever I have any problem for your advice.”

“Please keep your house and your door wide open for us, because we want to succeed as you succeeded.”
