We’ll Prioritize Investment In Agriculture – Fubara

Rivers State Governor Sir Siminalayi Fubara has reiterated the government’s commitment to revolutionizing the agricultural sector to reduce hunger and maintain food sufficiency for the people of the state.

The governor made this known during the SIMplified Movement Thanksgiving service held in honor of his recent Supreme Court victory and the landslide victory at the polls in 2023.

Leader of the Simplified Movement in Rivers State, Rt Hon Evans Bapakaye Bipi, who represented the governor at the program, revealed that massive work is ongoing at Songhai Farms, Tai LGA, to reactivate it for food production, sufficiency, and create gainful employment for the growing youthful population of Rivers State. He stated that despite the good intentions of the government of the day, detractors in a bid to foil the program tried to lure Tai people at the 11th hour with the promise to empower them with slippers and rice as the event turned sour with the loss of two innocent souls.

On his part, the vice-chairman of PDP in Rivers West Senatorial District, Hon Robinson Ewoh, said that Gov Fubara is a good man as he kept prioritizing the people’s interest in infrastructure delivery, healthcare development, education, and other critical sectors of governance.

He highlighted how the visionary leadership of the governor provided appreciable cushion against the harsh economic conditions for the citizens and residents of the state. He added that contrary to how the last administration diverted public funds and properties into personal estates, Governor Sim, being a noble and civilized man, will never embrace such a primitive lifestyle.
