The Governor of Rivers State, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, has tasked the Inter-Party Advisory Council, IPAC, to play effective role in checkmating the activities of his administration through constructive criticisms.

Fubara assured that the atmosphere would be created for all political parties in the state to operate so that they can engage with Government and offer credible opposition. This was IPAC passed a vote of confidence on the governor, following his peoples-oriented projects and programmes.

Fubara spoke, yesterday, when he played host to the leadership of the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Rivers State Chapter, led by its Chairman, Barrister Sensei Solsuema Osaro, at Government House in Port Harcourt, according to a statement by Nelson Chukwudi, the Chief Press Secretary to the governor

The governor stressed that it was the best thing to do, especially because the opposition political parties have acknowledged that elections are over and have resolved to offer effective support required to advance good governance in the State.

He maintained that an egalitarian society would be engendered so that people can feel free to voice their opinions without intimidation, because, according to him, those criticisms will contribute to having more focused implementation of policies that serve the general good of the State.

Fubara said: “So, we are happy to identify with you. We are assuring you, even when you leave here, criticise me, I don’t have problem with that, it is meant to spur me to do well. We will continue to give you the freedom. We will not cage anybody. We will not revoke your property.

“You can also take my message to your National Secretariat; we will continue to stand on the right path. We will support them because we can see that they are also doing what is right. Anytime they need our support, let them feel free to ask for it.”

Fubara commended IPAC for identifying with his Administration, pledging to collaborate efforts for the good of the State.

He pointed out that no person who truly loves Rivers State, whether embittered, or not, would gladly want to burn down the State to achieve personal or political agenda, noting that whatever political strength anybody claims to have it amounts to nothing without the State and its people.

Fubara assured that his team in Government would work genuinely to protect the interest of the State, promising to consult with IPAC and include their interest whenever appointments are made.

However, the Rivers State Chairman, IPAC, Barr. Sensei Solsuema Osaro, thanked Governor Fubara for the opportunity to meet with them, and announced that IPAC has passed a vote of confidence on him.
