Rivers State Political Shift: PDP Supports Tinubu, Fubara

Published on

In a remarkable political pivot within Rivers State, members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), previously aligned with the party’s presidential campaign, have announced their full support for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Governor Siminilayi Fubara. This unity gesture underscores a strategic alignment with the country’s and state’s leadership, fostering an atmosphere of collaboration for Nigeria’s advancement.

Political Realignments for National Unity

In a press briefing held in Port Harcourt, Dr. Abiye Sekibo, the former director general of the PDP campaign council, articulated the group’s decision to back President Tinubu and Governor Fubara. He emphasized the importance of adhering to the Supreme Court’s verdict, which affirmed President Tinubu’s election. The group’s alignment with the Renewed Hope Agenda aims to bolster the nation’s economy and ensure peace and harmony across Nigeria.

Governor Fubara’s democratic election and judicial confirmation as Rivers State Governor have galvanized local support. Sekibo expressed the group’s unwavering loyalty and encouraged collaboration between the state and federal leadership to enhance the wellbeing of Rivers people and the nation at large.

Addressing Challenges and Ensuring Progress

The discourse also touched on recent disturbances to the state’s peace, attributed to divisive actions by some individuals. Sekibo denounced efforts to impeach Governor Fubara and stressed the collective opposition to tribal or ethnic divisions. The leaders also voiced concerns about the character and governance style of the Federal Capital Territory’s Minister, urging President Tinubu to exercise vigilance.

The call for unity extends beyond party lines, inviting all Nigerians to support the Tinubu administration in overcoming economic and security challenges. The commitment to Governor Fubara’s leadership and the PDP’s structure in Rivers State signals a strong foundation for continued progress and stability.

A Vision for the Future

As the political landscape in Rivers State evolves, the endorsement of President Tinubu and Governor Fubara by PDP loyalists marks a pivotal moment. It reflects a broader desire for governance focused on development, unity, and the collective good.

Prince Uche Secondus, former national chairman of the PDP, reassured the party’s support for Governor Fubara’s potential second term in 2027, highlighting the importance of forgiveness and reconciliation within the party. This forward-looking stance promises a vibrant political future for Rivers State and Nigeria, characterized by cooperation, growth, and peace.

As Rivers State moves forward, this alignment between local and national leadership promises a brighter future for its people and the nation. Embracing unity, governance, and progress, Rivers State sets an example of constructive political collaboration, paving the way for a prosperous Nigeria.
