In response to critics of the peace pact, Fubara pledges a surprise



Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has a message for those who view his decision to honor the presidential peace pact as a sign of weakness – he plans to surprise them.

Fubara has been faced with numerous comments in the media regarding the implementation of the peace initiative. Despite this, he has chosen to remain silent, displaying maturity and wisdom.

Setting the record straight for clarity, the governor emphasized that accepting President Bola Tinubu’s intervention and the resulting agreement was a political solution.

According to a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Nelson Chukwudi, in Port Harcourt, Fubara has already begun implementing the agreement out of respect for Tinubu, not as a display of weakness as perceived by some political figures.

Addressing a rally by members of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees from the 23 Local Government Areas of Rivers State at Government House Gate in Port Harcourt, Fubara expressed gratitude for the evident support his administration continues to receive from the state’s residents.

He stressed the importance of leaving a positive legacy after his tenure, focusing on the genuine impact on people’s lives and society through implemented policies.

Fubara called on the public to stand behind his administration, understand the decisions made, and abide peacefully by the rules.

Local government workers have already started receiving a minimum wage of N30,000.00, with promotions set to kick off from the upcoming April payroll.

Committing to finalizing modalities for implementing the Consolidated Salary Scale for Grade Level 17 and ensuring the regular payment of benefits to local government service retirees, Fubara emphasized his dedication to leading with godly fear.

Regarding maturity and character, Fubara highlighted the importance of personal traits over age, expressing a commitment to maintaining maturity despite potential provocations within his administration.

Clifford Paul, the Rivers State Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, lauded Fubara’s support for workers during a Thank-You Rally, crediting the governor with transforming their circumstances and instilling hope by approving the N30,000.00 minimum wage and lifting a promotion ban.
