Governor Fubara made this statement during a courtesy visit from the Senate Committee on Privatisation and Commercialisation, led by Chairman Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, Hitvibz reports.

He emphasised that divine protection has shielded Rivers State from various crises, including a recent incident where an attempt to detonate a dynamite at the Presidential Hotel area ended with the perpetrator injuring himself.

Despite facing significant abuse, Governor Fubara claims that he’ll continue to maintain his focus on delivering democratic dividends to the state.

He asserted that efforts to instigate crisis in Rivers State would fail, adding that his administration is dedicated to a revolutionary movement, prioritising truth and democratic values over party affiliations.

Governor Fubara is undeterred by calculated blackmail and sabotage attempts against his administration.

“In our state today, we are no longer bound by party lines. We are driven by a movement, standing firm on the soil of Rivers State to defend democracy,” he noted.

He also criticised the disregard for constitutional provisions concerning the tenure of local government chairmen in Rivers State, urging scrutiny of such plots aimed at undermining the Constitution for vested interests.Sim Fubara Admits He's the Most Abused Governor in Nigeria

The governor questioned why statutory provisions are seemingly ignored in Rivers State, asking,

Is there a different constitution governing Rivers State compared to the rest of Nigeria? Why is the law always silent when it comes to Rivers State? These are the questions that need answers.”

Governor Fubara emphasised the importance of honesty and transparency in leadership, stating that,

We must be bold enough to speak the truth. Our actions are not about fighting individuals but defending and serving the state. In this Federal Republic of Nigeria, no other governor has tolerated as much as I have in Rivers State.”

He acknowledged the frequent abuse from local government chairmen but chooses to overlook it, focusing instead on his achievements and commitment to delivering results for the people of Rivers State.

At the end of the day, it’s not about the fights but the accomplishments. Despite the challenges, I am determined to deliver for Rivers State,” he noted.

Governor Fubara, however, expressed gratitude to the committee for their visit and appealed for consideration of Rivers State’s interests in the privatization of businesses.

He highlighted that Rivers State has the resources to acquire and protect these businesses, ensuring their viability for the state and the Federal Government.

Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Privatisation and Commercialisation and former governor of Abia State, commended Governor Fubara for his leadership, peaceful disposition, and people-oriented governance.Sim Fubara Admits He's the Most Abused Governor in Nigeria, Explains His Resilience

He urged the governor to remain focused on promoting peace and economic growth in Rivers State, warning against allowing political disagreements to derail the democratic process.

Senator Kalu noted that those instigating crises are doing a disservice to the state, emphasising the importance of upholding democratic principles for the benefit of all.
