Contrary to claims by the former Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, that he made Siminalayi Fubara governor of the state, the Abia State Governor, Alex Otti has declared that power only comes from the supreme being, God.

Otti made the declaration on Tuesday while inaugurating a project executed by Governor Fubara in Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The Abia governor expressed confidence that despite the political crisis rocking Rivers State, the people of the state are assured of getting the dividend of democracy, stressing that Fubara came prepared.

He said, “Power belongs to God, no human can arrogate to himself the capacity to give power, except you have the capacity to give life. Of course, you can take life, but you cannot give it.

“For me, it’s all about good governance. Governor Fubara came prepared, and I don’t believe that any distraction is enough to take his focus away from improving the welfare and interest of the people.

“So, I can assure you, Rivers people, that the dividends of democracy that you are seeing now is still a dress rehearsal. It is early in the morning, and I am sure that in the near future, you will be seeing more.”

Recall that CEOAFRICA reports that Governor Fubara, who vowed to probe the immediate past administration, expressed worries over the debt burden he inherited from his predecessor, Wike.

Speaking during the inauguration ceremony, Fubara lamented that the contractors who handled projects commissioned by Wike, “are still coming for their balance payments running into millions and billions.”
