Rivers crisis: I’m not ingrate – Fubara

Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State on Monday said he’s not an ungrateful or bad person, despite claims against him in certain quarters

Fubara said he appreciates all those who have been instrumental to him, adding that gratitude has compelled him not to throw caution to the wind in handling the current political crisis bedevilling the state.

He spoke while hosting stakeholders of Ikwerre ethnic nationality at the state’s Government House in Port Harcourt.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Nelson Chukwudi, Fubara said it would have been difficult for him to hide it if he were ungrateful.

He said: “I want to also say this: Fubara is not an ungrateful person. If I were a bad person, I can’t hide a character that is bad for more than one week, two weeks, one month, one year, two years, eight years, or even more than eight years. For 16 years, if I were a bad person, everybody would have known.

“But, even your own child that is in your house that you have given birth to, let us start with even the girl child. It gets to a stage where your girl child will enter the bathroom and lock the door from behind.

“Even if they forcefully put a feeding bottle in my mouth, if I get filled up, won’t I pull it out? So, when people stand outside and say what they say, I want you people to ask them to tell you, in their own good conscience, what is that bad thing, that wickedness, that ungratefulness that this man (Fubara) has ever shown or done. But I leave that one to God, who will judge everybody.”
