Fubara’s Commitment to Enhancing the Civil Service



Assuring the people of Rivers State, Governor Siminalayi Fubara has pledged to prioritize the welfare of civil servants to bolster the efficiency and productivity of the service within the state.

The governor emphasized his administration’s understanding and acknowledgment of the challenges faced by both civil and public servants in Rivers State.

Fubara delivered this commitment while engaging members of the Forum of Rivers State Government Teachers with Doctor of Philosophy during their peaceful appeal walk to the Government House in Port Harcourt.

The members of the forum sought transfers from public primary and secondary schools to tertiary institutions within the state.

Represented by the Secretary to the Rivers State Government, Dr. Tammy Danagogo, Fubara assured them of his government’s dedication to addressing their request, aligning with the administration’s core objectives of ethical governance and impactful outcomes for the people of Rivers State.

He remarked, “The primary issue at hand involves Ph.D. holders employed by the state seeking appropriate placements and promotions, which aligns with their aspirations and rights.”

Highlighting the governor’s background as a technocrat and former civil servant, Fubara stressed his empathy towards the workforce as a significant factor in his administration’s decision-making process regarding labor concerns.

The governor debunked claims labeling Ph.D. degrees in Rivers State as fraudulent, urging aspiring scholars not to adopt such misconceptions under his leadership.

He debunked, “Ph.D. degrees are not scams. Misrepresentations occur when individuals obtain degrees through illegitimate means. Genuine academic achievements hold significant value and should be valued.”

Fubara advised the forum members to prepare for screening procedures in anticipation of forthcoming measures aimed at resolving their requests appropriately.

“During employment processes at tertiary institutions, undergoing screening becomes essential to validate the legitimacy and value of your Ph.D. qualifications,” he noted.
