…Congratulates Asari Dokubo at 60

Rivers State Governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara has said the effort of his administration is to take development to every part of Rivers State as the only thing he desires to be remembered for, instead of developing his area alone.

Governor Fubara stated this at the birthday of Niger Delta ex-agitator, Alhaji Asari Dokubo at Novetel Hotel, Stadium Road, Port Harcourt on Saturday

The governor explained that his administration decided to embark on the Trans Kalabari Road project because he understands the importance of the road to the economic development of the area, and urged the continuous support of Kalabari kingdom to his administration to move the state forward.

“I honestly feel happy coming here to celebrate with you. I know what it means to live everyday, when you are in a certain position, it is not comfort that keeps you. Every day when you wake up, you give God all the glory and pray that you see the next day. I join other voices to wish you the best”

“At this particular time in our country and in our state, all we do as friends and good people of our state is to support the development of our state genuinely. You have listed the few projects we are embarking on and those we intend to do. I am not from Kalabari but I know the importance of that road, (Trans Kalabari Road project). I believe strongly that what I will be remembered for is not what I do for my Opobo people, but what I do in every part of the state.”

He said it is time to return the state on the path of love and unity to enable it to progress, calling on the people to work together to move the state forward.

The governor who was accompanied by other top government officials at the event congratulated the celebrant for clocking Sixty, describing him as a great leader who realized his calling earlier in life and followed it to fulfill his destiny, stating that he is proud to identify with him.

Sir Fubara appreciated the support of the celebrant to his administration and urged him to deploy his energies and resources to the service of the state and assured the partnership of his administration with him to move the state forward

On his part, the celebrant, Alhaji Asari Dokubo thanked the Governor for attending his 60th birthday and assured his support to his administration to succeed.

He recalled with nostalgia the hectic days of his upbringing and prison experience were he had close shaves with death but survived by the prayers, good will of people and the grace of God.

Alhaji Dokubo commended the Governor for embarking on the Trans Kalabari road project and pleaded with him to continue to open the coastal lines for business activities and tourism to thrive .
