Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State has warned the newly sworn in commissioners who were reabsorbed on the proclamation of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the crisis in the state not to attempt destroying his government.

The governor directed the Secretary to the State Government to reassign only the commissioners who were present at his 49th birthday celebration back to their old offices.

Fubara said the commissioner should not think about him but what they can defend and be proud of in many years to come.

“Let me also use this medium to direct the Secretary to the State Government to assign the commissioners that were sworn in last week with their responsibilities.

"Let the SSG assign only those of you who are here today back to their former offices. Let it be part of my birthday gift to you.

“But let me also say this, coming and taking back your position is not for you to use it to destroy my government. Whatever it is that you’re doing, it is not about me.

“It is about the things that you can stand to defend and be proud of many years after.”

Fubara and warned the newly appointed Chief of Staff and other appointees not to use their new position to stalk or antagonise perceived political enemies.

He said all contending challenges have been surrendered to God with the confidence that He will continue to intervene in a manner that will shock the world.

Fubara stated this shortly after swearing in the Chief of Staff, Government House, and five Special Advisers at the Executive Chambers of Government House in Port Harcourt on Monday.

Those sworn in were Ehie Edision as Chief of Staff, Government House, with Dr Darlington Orji, Solomon Eke, Aminayanasam Fiberesima, Deeyah Bariene and Ohia Prince as Special Advisers.

Fubara said the purpose of governance was to render services even in the face of difficulties and their appointment serves as evidence that concrete machinery is being put in place to help solve those problems.

The governor urged them to see their appointment as a call to duty, rise to the occasion of adding value to governance and demonstrate that they are truly credible men of the state.

He said, “Let me add, don’t use this position to antagonise anybody, even in your localities. I want to speak to you and I will continue to say it, what God cannot do does not exist.

“That you succeeded in battle is not because of your power. It is the grace of God. When God says it will not happen again, whoever you are, it ceases from that moment. I am not appointing you today because I want you to go to your areas and start fighting, no.

“We have surrendered our situation to God and God is going to solve it in a way that will shock the world for everybody to know that God is always God.

“Please, I don’t want this position to be a platform for you to start stalking anyone. Do what you know is right.”
